OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone vendor, made a name for themselves in a short span of just two years. The company's OnePlus One was a huge hit, which was followed by the little success of OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X. And, for the fourth time, the company is bang with the OnePlus 3, which is one of the best Android phones of 2016.
Having said that, just a month ago, the company announced the successor to the not so old- OnePlus 3, namely, the OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 3T is not a huge upgrade from the OnePlus 3. However, it brings on some essentials to the list.
At the launch event earlier this month, OnePlus said that their OnePlus 3T would be manufactured in India. The Chinese company hasn't revealed any plans on how they will start the process in India or with whom they are partnering with in India.
In speaking to Reuters in a phone call, Vikas Agarwal, the general manager of OnePlus India, said that the company would start manufacturing the phone in India itself, maybe in January itself. He also gave a hint that they will collaborate with Foxconn to set up a plant in India.
As we already know about the fact that OnePlus 3T is exclusive to Amazon India and the e-commerce giant has received over 200,000 registrations for the Rs. 29,999 model. Agarwal also quoted that they have lost nearly 30 percent of sales due to the stock unavailability.
Apart from this, the Chinese smartphone company is setting up six new service centers in India to meet the customer demand.
