Spec enthusiasts with an affinity for CyanogenMod, prepare to be wowed: OnePlus teased on its Facebook page today that its first smartphone will be built “using only the best components and 2014 flagship specs, both inside and outside.” The startup, which was founded last year by a former Oppo executive, promises to deliver a device that is “more attractive than just about any phone on the market.”
I wasn’t kidding when I said prepare to be wowed, because OnePlus volunteered precious little in terms of specifics. That being said, the company was willing to reveal that the upcoming smartphone will be compatible with a swath of LTE bands – 1/3/4/7/17/38/39/40/41, to be exact – and should debut around Q2 of this year. No word on domestic carrier compatibility, but considering T-Mobile runs LTE band 4 and AT&T band 4 and 17, those providers are the best bet.
