While OnePlus One’s official India launch date is nearing, next month to be precise, the general manager of OnePlus India has promised after-sales service to Indian users who’ve officially bought the One from OnePlus’ website.
In a forum message put up on Saturday, Agarwal said, “An Indian user who has bought the global version of the One from oneplus.net can now avail after-sales service locally. The standard warranty terms for India apply on all such requests.” Note that this will not extend to users who have bought the phone from online resellers such as eBay or other unofficial sites.
The Shenzen based company, which launched the One in April this year, is expected to launch the phone in India next month. We had a chance to review the OnePlus One and came away impressed.
