Oplus XonPhone 5 marks company’s entry into Indian smartphone arena

The Oplus XonPhone 5 is a smartphone which Indian consumers can now buy at a price of Rs 7999. The Taiwanese company which is known for its XonPad 7 tablet will be selling this Android KitKat-equipped smartphone only through Snapdeal.

This is yet another display of the recent Indian trend of selling products exclusively through certain e-retailers. One of the prime reasons why manufacturers take this approach is that it greatly reduces operating costs and this in turn, allows them to price the devices lower than usual.
