OnePlus, a China-based smartphone maker, saw its latest model sold off within minutes in India on Thursday, despite growing calls for boycott of Chinese goods following a border conflict between the Asian neighbors.

The OnePlus 8 Pro mobile phone, which is priced at a significant discount to Apple Inc.’s latest iPhones, was not available on Amazon.com Inc.’s local website just a few minutes after it went on sale. At the same time, #BoycottChineseProducts was among the top Twitter trends in India for almost two days, after the nation’s army said at least 20 of its soldiers lost their lives in a violent standoff with Chinese troops in a contested Himalayan border.

The pace of sales show that weaning away Indians from feature-rich and cheaply priced Chinese products is easier said than done. India relies on China for the bulk of its imports, with purchases in the year ended March running into more than $60 billion. Beijing runs a trade surplus of about $50 billion with New Delhi.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday said the nation will reduce dependence on imports, Ramdas Athawale, a member of Modi’s ministerial panel, went so far as to call for a ban on even restaurants that prepare Chinese food.

OnePlus is a very affordable mobile phone, most Chinese prefer Huawei phones now, but they are very expensive by Indians' living standard, so affordable brands like Xiaomi, Redmi and Oneplus are very popular here, very understandable.

And don't celebrate this as a Chinese, Chinese just selling the kind of weapons that indian internet warriors will use to kill Chinese in the battlefiled like youtube, wiki and twitters, how shortsighted we are

They bought just for the research purpose.

Or may be they will teach a lesson to China by purchasing all the phones and then not using them..

What more could you expect? They consider cow to be at the same place as their mother and India is the second largest exporter of beef. They have been selling their holy mothers all this time and you think they are gonna grow some backbone to boycott chinese products?

This is actually 8D chess from modi. You see when all indians buy chinese smartphones they are investing billions into chinese economy, so when china acts to big modi ji can simply pull those billions out and force them to surrender :-)
