iHub Pvt. Ltd., the authorised distributor of OnePlus smartphones in Nepal, successfully conducted the bloggers meet where they unveiled their upcoming product — the OnePlus X. The smartphone is currently available for booking via e-commerce platform kaymu for an introductory price of Rs. 26,999. The price will rise to Rs. 28,999 starting 15th May and for the first week, it will be available exclusively on kaymu followed by selected retailers across the country.
The One Plus X is one of the best smartphones to buy under Rs. 30,000 in Nepal and comes with appealing specs and build. Sporting a gorilla glass 3 on both front and rear, the phone has a 5-inch FullHD AMOLED display and is powered by quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor. It has 3GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage. Upfront there is a 13MP shooter with LED flash and an 8MP selfie snapper. It has a 2525mAh non-removable battery which the company claims will allow 8 hours of talk time on a single charge. It uses a hybrid dual-SIM slot, with the second slot usable for microSD card that is expandable upto 128GB.
Speaking during the bloggers meet, Sirish Murarka and Lokesh Oli, Directors of ihub Pvt. Ltd. said —
“Nepal has advanced immensely when it comes to technology and gadgets. Considering the demand for premium products that offers exclusivity and quality both, the One Plus X is a perfect match to the Nepalese market both in terms of looks and pricing. We aim to give our loyal buyers the best of what they can have and One Plus X serves to be the best smart phone in this segment that has not only met customer’s needs but have exceeded their expectations. No phone in the market can beat the look of this phone.”
iHub is also planning to launch the OnePlus icon, an in-house earphone that will cost little over Rs.6,500 when it arrives in Nepal next week. The company claims that it outperforms other heavily priced earphones, and is perfect for audiophiles who don’t want to spend a lot.
Overall, we are really excited about the Oneplus products. We hope it will bring another dimension to the Nepalese smartphone market. With the pricing of Huawei and Xiaomi products so utterly ridiculous in Nepal, it’s good to see the OnePlus X launching in Nepal for a commonsensical pricing of just Rs.28,990. The company maintained that unlike other smartphone brands, OnePlus will act smart in their marketing campaign and will have selected retail shops with virtually no regional distributors in order to keep the prices down to a certain extent.
