At present India is like a magnet for the mobile brands which is hard to stay away. If the indications are right OnePlus One may well be on its way to India as it is looking for the General Manager for the country.
In the job listings, the company has called for the post of ‘General Manager – India Operations.' "We've seen tremendous interest from India in the OnePlus One, but to enter the market we'll need the help of a local visionary. You will be the sun, the light that leads OnePlus into the Indian market; the centre of orbit for all projects, operations, and service; the ambassador that spreads the OnePlus brand across India like a wildfire," it says.
India has been one of the most lucrative markets for the international brands and the past few months has seen an influx of multiple brands. The Indian welcoming the Moto (E, G and X) and Xiaomi with open arms too may be one of the reasons.
Along with this there has been an increased interest in the OnePlus One products in India. In a recent forum it said, “Over the past months, we've seen tremendous interest from India, despite not having launched there. We have many customers in India purchasing to the US, and then asking a friend to bring it over or trans-shipping it. Some have even purchased the device from scalpers. Looking at our traffic, India ranks number 8, outweighing many of our launch countries. It's safe to say that we're interested in India. Being such a young company, we also know that India is a huge challenge. We're all about creating a great user experience from end to end. We understand that there are lots to learn, consider and set up before we can officially launch in this vast country.
Considering the positive reviews that the company has generated in US, it looks like a good news for the Indians.
