Dear friends,

As I sit thousands of meters over the Pacific Ocean, I can’t help but think about last week and our trip to India.

We launched the OnePlus One in India after many months of hard work. Your high expectations reminded us every day to seize the moment and move with haste, and we thank you for all of your encouragement.

Thousands of you supported us long before we officially announced that we would enter the Indian market. As a company that’s not yet even a year old, and has no track record on which to stand upon, your faith in our product and vision is humbling. We know we made you wait a while. We understand the wait could be frustrating, but looking back, we are glad that we waited until all pieces were in place.

The launch itself is a memory that we will keep with us forever. During the event, the excitement in the room was electric. When you cheered for us, it was clear everything we endured up to the launch was worth it. The day after, it was great delivering the phones by hand and meeting some of you face to face. You were so happy, and seeing you this way made us genuinely happy too. We wish we could hand deliver the devices to each and every one of you, but sadly we also had to start working on what’s next.

We have some big plans in the works, India. And while it took a while for us to get the One to you, we promise that won’t be the case in the future. India will be one of the first countries to see our newest products in the future.

We will also have a local office, which we are currently getting set up in Bangalore. This office will house everyone from our GM to the local marketing, logistics and even R&D teams. By establishing an R&D team on the ground, we can make products that better serve Indian users. We hope you’re as excited about this as we are and that you stop by the office to say hello should you find yourself in the area.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support from our partners at Amazon.in. From the start, our cultures and aspirations were a great fit. Like Amazon, customers are of top importance to OnePlus. And like OnePlus, Amazon had their sights on serving a global audience from the start. Not only have we learned a lot from these guys, they also stood firmly beside us in times of adversity. That’s the true definition of a partner, and this is just day one of a relationship we hope only gets better with time.

Never Settle. This is something that came intuitively to you. You immediately understood what we wanted to achieve and rallied behind us with support. Our original idea was simple. We wanted to focus on two important things that people were forgetting. Create legendary products, and treat our customers as we would treat our friends.

Getting to India wasn’t easy, and the challenges we face will only grow if OnePlus India is to become as significant as we plan. We look forward to learning and growing together. Business aside, we have made wonderful friends through the Indian OnePlus community and have been introduced to an amazing new part of the world. We cherish the warmth and support we’ve received, it has heightened this experience for our whole team.

Sabar ka phal meetha hota hai. A better and stronger OnePlus awaits.

    Thanks for extending operations to India. Can we expect a pre-order system of distribution in this festive season. First anniversary is also coming up right ?

    “Sabar ka phal meetha hota hai. A better and stronger OnePlus awaits” but it is still sour for me. I have taken part in the contest and still waiting for an Invite. What rubbish it is, Guys you are in the market to sell your product and your efforts to sale the One Plus are irritational more than motivational. Its enough guys,your product is already a super hit. I just request for the last time to send me an invite. Rest is your choice else I already have the second choice of LG G3.

    • Nanda Kumar

      I received an invite for every contest I took part in.. It’s worth a wait.. Be patient bro 🙂

  • Nanda Kumar

    Touching and impressive… I am sure you are at the right place at right time with hopefully right people 🙂

  • Shree

    Thanks for your belief on us Dear Pete, we(Indians) support you(the company) as long as your products have the quality, best user experience, best after services and rock bottom price 🙂

  • Very Impressive.

  • azam

    Nice…we are patient as God..dont worry about Indians Carl. Keep up the good work you are doing, a local office in India is much appreciated and thanks for keeping us in priority now. Sabar ka phal aapke liyen bhi meetha hoga…:)
    Didnt got any invite though, waiting for it badly..:(

  • I always have a farsight for 1+. The company will florish. Have a blast. Increase invite, lets participate.

  • This is something no other company CEO or director can do. Touching with customers and appraising their support is remarkable. Thanks OnePlus for making One, we are with you and we can wait more!

    you don’t blv dat how much one plus one lover in Bangladesh though BD isnt in the country list for shipping.It would be great if you can do so.Our Love will always be with you One Plus One 🙂

  • vaibhav shukla

    Its not easy to handle a tough market like India … you created a boom but without proper accessories its not worth it. Amazon Indiais taking the orders and then canceling it. Why is there limited stock for accessories?
    We are even not sure about updates, ROMs and other software stuffs in India. I don’t understand how are you planning and what your “BIG PLANS” are.

  • Gautam Tatma

    It’s one plus one that opened my eyes

  • Ravi Patil

    Nice simple as the device yet powerful. I an proud owner of OnePlus mobile and would love to be part of OnePlus.

  • Beautiful words! I’m a proud owner and big fan of the OnePlus One. Having high hopes that, in case of any issues, I’ll receive the same ‘friendly treatment’ that you have promised in this message 🙂

  • Gopal

    Hindi at the end is irritating (Not every one in india knows hindi). But its okay! 🙂

  • Nikhil

    I received an Invite on Dec 16 and the very next day the phone was banned. I blame my luck. Hoping to receive the phone soon.

    • Suraj Maharana

    Dear Friends ,
    I WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE OnePlus One mobile phone but don’t have “INVITE” please HELP Me out by sending invite through message at [email protected] I will be highly obliged . Thanx A Million in Advance !!

  • Kvr Harish Kumar

    Ok, But the truth is that we are left out in the dark with no Cyanogen support, Max Audio by Waves, Clear Image feature etc.,And the promised first community build of your own lollipop based software is not yet released. So weighing on all these, I don’t see it as exciting at all for the Indian consumers. Sure, it’s not your fault but ultimately, we the users are paying the price. Any measures that you can take for the immediate resolution of these issues are much appreciated.

  • Abhijit Totade

    What about up gradation to lollypop and new version of cynogen for India?

    Hi Carl, just finished watching your interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTU2Ae27T14, Really motivated by it. The way you tackled those hardships is commendable. Once when I was getting delayed by not receiving OnePlus Two invite. I posted spam comments on your forum. I truly apologise for that, not knowing the true hard work and the passion you have for phones, I am no one to question you. I am a big supporter of OnePlus one though: I have one plus 1, 2 and now I am desperately waiting for One Plus X (Without any impatience 🙂 )

    I have started participating actively on your forums as I truly feel that OnePlus is totally a different company from others, its like I am not lying, however it feels like we all are a family. You posted your apology publicly when there were some issues with the invite system of OnePlus Two, I have not seen anybody to react so proactively. Your phone no doubt is the best I have right now (even as compared with my iPhone 5S and BB Passport). Again I repeat OnePlus and just am expecting that it will grow and be the best to say the least.
