After claiming a few weeks ago that the company may well have to raise the price of its handsets in the Indian market, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has said that its smartphone OnePlus One price will not be revised upwards in the market.

OnePlus One is without doubt the best handsets in the market in the price range. It is even less pricey than Xiaomi’s Mi4 and has been selling rather well in the market here since its launch in association with Amazon.in a few months ago.

The Indian government earlier this year had doubled the excise duty from six percent to 12.5 percent. This is a massive hike and the company had subsequently indicated that a price hike was on the card.

Nonetheless despite announcing a hike, the company has decided to stick with Rs 21,999 price for One Smartphone in India. Vikas Agarwal, the company’s General Manager for the Indian market is of the opinion that that OnePlus is committed to the market and wants to make the phone available at an attractive amount. There’s also the ‘Never Settle’ philosophy which the OEM wants to protect. One Plus One seems to be the most attractive handset. Its 16GB white and 64GB black models are available for Rs 18999 and Rs 21999, respectively on Amazon’s India affiliate.
