In an interview to ET, Carl Pei, director of OnePlus revealed that the company has had prelimilary talks with Microsoft to make a Windows Phone OS smartphone, and hasn’t made a decision yet.
The OnePlus is set to enter Indian market by December and will finalize its online retail partner within this week. OnePlus has been in huge demands thanks to “Value for money” aspect of its personality.
A similar product for Windows OS users should work well for Microsoft. Windows OS is already very resource efficient and there are several Lumia phones under 20K which can efficiently run Windows phone OS, so the “never settle” tagline might lose some shine.
OnePlus One flaunts 5.5 Inch Full HD JDI display powered by 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset backed by 3 GB RAM. Imaging hardware includes 13 MP Rear/ 5 MP front Snapper, while other features include 3100 mAh battery, NFC, internal GPS antenna + GLONASS, Digital Compass and Tri-microphone with noise cancellation. The 16 GB variant will cost around $299 and 64 GB variant will cost $349.
The company is also expected to launch OnePlus Two in 2015, which will appease those who like a slightly smaller form factor. Do you think a Windows OS based OnePlus Phone will be a good idea?
