OnePlus has finally started teasing the arrival of the OnePlus Band fitness tracker in India.

The microsite for the company’s first fitness band is now live on OnePlus India’s website and Amazon.
These listings do not explicitly mention the name of the device. However, reliable tipsters Mukul Sharma and Ishan Agarwal have not only claimed that the brand will be launching as OnePlus Band, but have also revealed its specifications, pricing, and images.
The official listing on OnePlus’ website states that the company will be running a quiz every day before the official announcement. The winners of the quiz will be announced in a few days’ time.
