With less than two weeks to go before the official launching of the most anticipated OnePlus One phone, the company has revealed yet another detail about the device – OnePlus One will invade 16 countries worldwide.
From the latest public post of the company, they revealed some of the countries where OnePlus One will land, namely:
CEO Pete Lau said in a statement, “We look forward to sharing the One with the world very soon. It will definitely be worth the wait. The OnePlus One will be the fastest phone on the market. The OnePlus One will be unique to offer both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 as well as a full 3GB of RAM. I am very confident that everyone will see how impressive your phone experience can be with the One. With the amazing experience that CyanogenMod offers combined with all the great features that we?ve packed in, you can be sure that you will be able to multi-task, game, and be more productive than ever without having to settle or sacrifice.”

PHONE SPECIFICATIONS and ONLINE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
With regard to the handset?s specifications, Pete Lau said, ?Companies generally focus on retail price first when defining phone specs. The better the specs, the more expensive the product. We believe that there are new ways to incorporate more technology with no extra cost. OnePlus doesn?t compromise on product quality and plans to offer greater value to consumers through innovative design and online strategy.?

Moreover, OnePlus will soon offer its customers an online shopping website where they could buy the OnePlus One handset. In the statement of the company, they said, ?Our goal is to make the OnePlus online shopping experience as friendly for the user as possible. To accomplish this, we chose to focus on three areas: localization, logistics and customer service.?
Customers can expect that with these three (3) areas, OnePlus will offer the handset in such a friendly way.
?When you visit OnePlus, it will feel like visiting any local e-commerce website from your country. It will be in your native language, the currency you pay in will be your local currency, and all aspects of the experience will be catered to your region.?
The company also promises that there will be more warehouses in every continent to serve the customers and help ensure safe and speedy delivery.
?European customers are often worried about customs and VAT when purchasing goods from outside of Europe. By the time you purchase the OnePlus One, we would already have imported them into the European Union, and paid all associated fees and taxes. The device will be shipped from one of our EU warehouses. The EU is still trying to unify the laws and taxes across the different countries, so some countries might still act a bit differently. However, this means that in 99.9% of the cases, EU customers will not be faced with any customs issues when buying their OnePlus.?
There will also be customer service team to assist customers/users whenever they face problems with the product.
?We?ll also have a dedicated customer service team ready to assist. As we start out, the customer service will operate from the OnePlus HQ. All agents will possess great English skills, and with the help of modern translation tools, will even be able to help you in your local language if you don?t feel like requesting help in English. Depending on how well our products are received, we may expand our customer service team to other regions in the near future.?
