OnePlus has announced that it would open the world’s largest OnePlus store in Hyderabad later this year. It made the announcement on Twitter and shared some images of the proposed building. The company also shared the designs of its experience stores in Mumbai and Pune. A media report said that the store in Hyderabad would be a six-storeyed building, which will be spread across an area of over 16,000 square feet.
OnePlus already has an R&D centre in Hyderabad, as well as three experience stores in New Delhi, Bengaluru and Chennai. The company is working on developing India-specific features that are expected to be rolled out to devices soon. Company co-founder Carl Pei said that Hyderabad is a booming tech and IT centre.
“The store design will be the confluence of the old and the new, representing the city of Hyderabad. The outer layer will have a clean white finish, with nano-material that can withstand dust and maintain a clean, white look for years; the inner wall will represent raw Hyderabad. Also, the store will light up differently as the day goes by, depending on the position of the sun,” Carl said. OnePlus currently has 485 offline touch points across the country.
The company recently launched the OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7 smartphones in the country. Both the phones are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The OnePlus 7 Pro sports an all-screen display design with a pop-up camera mechanism. It sports a 6.67-inch fluid AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution and has a 90 Hz refresh rate.
