Any US prices are not inclusive of sales tax, so it might look like the US get it cheaper, when in fact they don't
Eske Rahn, 28 Jul 2015"12 major markets" Major? ...One of these is Denmark with a population of only 6M...Yes with a high GDP. I.e. more people would be able to afford it vs. a larger country with a smaller GDP
SDKforLumia, 28 Jul 2015And they won't ship it to Pakistan with a population of 180 million, still Denmark with a popu... moreBut out of those 6million Danish people, who can afford the phone. Vs how many people can afford the phone in Pakistan. Not being racist, just pointing out facts. Look at country GDP figures and you'll understand
AnonD-417533, 28 Jul 2015not so much, and plus, on this price in europe we need to pay about 22-25% of TAXDude... that pricing is inclusive of tax! So thats exactly how much u need to pay!
Just ok kind of a phone... Invites is a stress...
My Top 4 Android dream list ranking for now:
1) Samsung A8 - Super Amoled
2) S6 mini (yet to come) - Compact Flagship
3) Asus Zenfone 2 32GB - Balanced
4) One plus 2 64GB - CynogenMod
Racist is a very strong term, and just as others have said in the comments, they will ship to countries with larger market, not a larger population. Meaning that it is possible they only sell a few thousand in Pakistan while they sell up to tens of thousands in Denmark.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2015Zenfone 2 is better than this with 4gb ram, 64 gb rom and sd card slot at 23000 inr.The zanphone is also a really good phone for it's price tag, but the camera can for sure not hold on the omnivision 13mp of the oneplus, it also lacks slow motion video capture and than is of course the dark screen and - I really like Intel chips but - the worse CPU and GPU. For sure the snadragon has overheating problems, but it's not that bad and you know that if you have ever used a 810 device and beside of that the 810 has just much more power than the Intel chip

Asus is an option if you need cheap expandable storage. But the OIS camera? 4K video?
Wait for a bit - by the time most people get invites the price should be closer to INR 21K.
Eske Rahn, 28 Jul 2015"12 major markets"
...One of these is Denmark with a population of only 6M...so?
if they sell f.e. 50 000 pices in Denmark, and only 10 000 in Australia, which is bigger market for them!?
and they do know, where did they sell first phone, so they know what can they axpect.
and this is more like wher tey will have resellers, and now we all know how much will it cost if we live in some coutries of those on list, or near them.
by the way, i like how it looks, but for me it is too big. and it's battery size could be better
Price is much higher.should b arnd 17k and 19k.
same old design.No metal,glass or anything.
i wud prefer 5inch display.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2015Zenfone 2 is better than this with 4gb ram, 64 gb rom and sd card slot at 23000 inr.Consider the design factor and the camera factor, this is much much worth than asus zenfone 4. for a normal user, I think 64Gb is more than enough, I see people using 16Gb with no card slot.
And they won't ship it to Pakistan with a population of 180 million, still Denmark with a population of 6 million will get. Eff you OnePlus for being so racist.

Pricing done right for India. But availability only through the cumbersome invite system? Not so intuitive and won't sell that fast.
"12 major markets"
...One of these is Denmark with a population of only 6M...
Pricing ok but a flagship phone with no card slot or waterproofing?
And still only invite only?
Where is china rates? Chines compony not launching phone in china or what?
Thay r charging $20 more for 16 gb model and $2 more for 64 gb model in india. That doesn't make any sense
