The campaign #NeverSettle has brought the mobile industry the OnePlus One and now we are just expecting the lauch of the OnePlus 2. A lot of challenges, has been faced by OnePlus mostly in India, where it faced head-to-head with Cyanogen after the last contract with Micromax which caused a sales ban which was soon lifted.

After a year from the launching date of the phone, only now that the model is available without an invitation. After months of gearing up for its exclusive release through Maxis, the OnePlus One has been presented in Malaysia.
One of the top communications service provider in the country is Maxis, which become the ideal partner for OnePlus. It will be the first country which their smartphone will be available instores without any invitation. Maxis influence in Malaysia is so relevant, that it’s expected to give more One sales to OnePlus.
The reviews about the smartphone, has been positive, because of its high specifications and enjoyable design. OnePlus labeled the phone as the “Flagship Killer”. We still have to get our hands on “One”, but we’re thrilled to know that this sales and marketing, will get the company to a higher level.
