Chinese smartphone start-up OnePlus Wednesday said that it will not increase the price of its flagship OnePlus One in India.
The company had hinted earlier that due to the steep rise in the customs duty on imported mobile devices in this year's Union Budget, the price of the 16GB and 64GB may see a slight rise.

OnePlus has officially confirmed that the One will continue to be available for users in India at Rs 21,999 for the 64GB model and Rs 18,999 for the 16GB model.
"We assure our users that we are constantly evaluating what works best for them; part of that is to continue to make the One available at an attractive price point," Vikas Agarwal, General Manager - India, OnePlus, said in a statement.
"It is an ambitious step for a young startup, but for us it's about returning maximum value to our users by offering them great products and unique experiences", he added.
Currently, the 64GB OnePlus One is available in Sandstone Black and 16GB is available in Silk White, through Amazon using the invite system.
