“OnePlus recognized the enormous potential of 5G early on. We launched 5G research efforts in 2016. And we became one of the first technology companies in the world to bring 5G connectivity to users. As India prepares to launch 5G, OnePlus users will enjoy a truly seamless and fast internet experience with their future-ready devices, while getting much more out of their everyday smartphone use than they never would have imagined,” Navnit Nakra, CEO of India and Head of India Region, OnePlus India, told IANS.
OnePlus launched the first range of 5G smartphones in 2020 in India, with the OnePlus 8 series in April 2020.
Since then, all OnePlus smartphones have been 5G-ready, including the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, the brand’s most affordable device in India, in the price segment below Rs 20,000, priced at Rs 19,999, according to the company.
OnePlus emerged as the leading 5G smartphone brand in online channels in the Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 segment in the first half of 2022, according to the recent Counterpoint India channel share tracker for the second quarter of 2022.
The company also said it became the top-selling 5G smartphone on Amazon.in during the Great Indian Festival from September 22-29 (by volume).
