While it’s good news for Malaysia, the company is yet to tie-up similar agreements with operators in Europe or the US. Nonetheless, it’s an important milestone for a young smartphone brand looking to properly establish itself against big-name rivals. The deal also means that it’s the first time that OnePlus smartphones will be sold in physical retail stores.

From tomorrow, a 64GB OnePlus One will be available to buy in Maxis shops from RM1199 ($330) SIM-free, or for RM859 on a MaxisONE plan. And, while you might need to queue still, you won’t need an invite.
