OnePlus has launched the OnePlus One 64 GB sandstone variant in India exclusively on Amazon India today at Rs. 21,999. The 16 GB variant has not been launched here. A small let-down for Indian users is that CyanogenMod will not support updates for this OnePlusOne in India as they have entered an exclusive deal with Micromax. OnePlus will launch a special build of Android Lollipop for India for the same reason. In first batch, there will be 20,000 units which will go on sale in India and the sales will be also on invite basis unlike flash sales we saw for Xiaomi.
