Since the last week, there were reports that the Chinese manufacturer OnePlus will be launching the 16 GB Silk White variant of its OnePlus One smartphone in India. Today, the device has been launched for a pricing of Rs 18,999.

Under its hood, there is a 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3 GB of RAM for multitasking. Storage aspects include 16 GB and 64 GB of internal memory capacities that cannot be expanded.
The device was launched with Cyanogen OS 11S based on Android 4.4 KitKat, but the vendor has come up with the OxygenOS based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Imaging wise, the OnePlus comes with a 13 MP rear camera with Dual LED Flash, Sony Exmor BSI sensor, f/2.0 aperture and support for 4K video recording. There is a 5 MP front facing camera as well onboard. Other aspects include 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and NFC. It is powered by a 3,100 mAh battery that can pump in a decent backup to the device.
As mentioned above, the OnePlus One 16 GB Silk White variant is priced at Rs 18,999 and it is exclusive to the online retailer Amazon India.
