Leading app-based cab service provider Ola will sell OnePlus X smartphones through its app starting December 8, a company statement said.
"This is the first time in India where consumers can purchase a smartphone and have it delivered at their doorstep within 15 minutes of placing the order," the city-based cab facilitator said in the statement.
"Our partnership is aimed at benefiting buyers of the handsets and our users from December 8 in seven cities across the country—Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and National Capital Region (NCR)," Ola marketing vice-president Sudarshan Gangrade said.
According to the statement, the customers will have to place an order for the phone through the Ola app between 10 am to 7 pm.
"On receiving the request, an Ola cab will reach the customer's location with a OnePlus representative and the smartphone for transaction in cash or credit/debit cards," Gangrade said.
OnePlus India marketing head Karan Sarin said in view of its online presence, it will be convenient for its customers to get their hands on its handsets in three easy steps—book, purchase and deliver.
