OnePlus Teases CyanogenMod Superphone, LTE Compatible and Coming Q2 of This Year

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.

Still interested in a CyanogenMod phone after seeing the Oppo N1 (our hands-on)?

    Pricing will decide whether or not this gains interest.

    I’ve kinda fallen away from Cyanogenmod here lately.

    • Hans Dirk Kwazneski

      Why? Too mainstream?

      • Ryan

        I don’t know, but I’ve been feeling the same way the past few months actually. Though I hope CM remains successful in the end, but after a suggestion a couple weeks ago from someone, I went to OmniROM to give it a try and I’m actually liking it. Just a few features missing I liked, but I can live without them.

        With CM being Incorporated kinda irked me for a while, and I figured, its about time to get off the CM base of ROMs. Just haven’t done it on my tablet, but I’d have to charge it anyway since I let it die apparently.

  • imns

    Pity we will never see it on Verizon.

  • mcdonsco

    Noob time!

    It doesn’t seem that syanogen has a rom for the Verizon LG G2; is that correct?

    Also, if I were to run a rom on this phone (it’s rooted), would it add the otherwise missing SPP Bluetooth profile?


    • PSU_DI

      Try here http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-g2/development-verizon. My guess about the SPP profile is that it could be there since it is part of the main bluetooth stack that CM uses.

      They do but the ROM has several bugs still. One is the random reboot. I would go with Paranoid 4.0 Beta3. That’s what I’m on! And yes Daily driver.

  • Chippah

    Even if it DID have the correct VZW bands. Good luck getting it on their network, unless you cloned another vzw approved device..

      Please go crawl into a hole and die. No one cares what you have to say.

      • Sirx

        Well that escalated needlessly…err…quickly! Especially since he’s right. Roll over to the other side of the bed right quick and see if that doesn’t help 🙂

        • Chippah

          We would love to have it on VZW!, However there is a fat change they would allow it when they wouldn’t even let a N7 on the network offically,

          • Tim242

            Officially being the key word. Pop in a SIM and go.

      • Chippah

        Get Raped by a pack of AIDS infested Haitians please, Mutha Fawka!

  • Jonathan Bunch

    Sounds like cyanogen and find 7 ?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Hopefully it’s smaller, a lot smaller than the N1

      There’s very few times when this is appropriate anymore because it’s been used so much.

  • NorCalGuy

    I hope it looks a lot better than the oppo 1, that swiveling camera was ugly!

  • Man, if this comes to AT&T, I’m all over it.

  • John Legere

    So, 5.5in , 2560×1440, SD805, 4000mAh battery, 3gb ram….im in.

    • Craig

      You should get in touch with Peter Lau to make this baby a T-Mobile exclusive and get (even more) people to break up with their carriers.

      • Ej McCarty

        No idiot, exclusives are as stupid as your comment.

    • Richard Yarrell

      Hey John let’s get this to Tmobile that would be great definitely.

      • Dr_Buttballs

        Shut up, Richard.

      • Orion

        But Richard, its not a Samsung phone. Are you ok?

      • squiddy20

        Says the guy who claims *all* stock Android phones are “boring and useless”. Meanwhile, CM is pretty darn close to stock Android, much more so than “the almighty” Touchwiz. For proof, look no further than your own comment made here: http://thedroideffect.com/nexus-elitism-needs-to-stop/#comment-1213087546

        • Orion

          Just living proof that Richard never has any idea what the hell he’s talking about. lol

    • Chippah

      Hey John, How about you go shop for some Towers, you know for service or sumphin’.. instead of being here..

    • Ej McCarty

      You’ve managed to get the two most annoying people on this site to comment on your post; congrats. haha 🙂

      Edit: That would be Chippah the dick sippa and old black pedophile yarrell.

      • Chippah

        Ya motha entertaining those friendly neighborhood boys Darnell and Tyrell jackson tonight again? We want pictures of you prepping the bulls.

    • mikeym0p

      5″ Is the limit IMO (so that means 2015 every phone released will be 6″ and up)

  • tyguy829

    No chance of it being a volte phone for verizon though, since they use band 13. not surprised

    • mog386

      Verizon does have Band 4 holdings as well, which they are launching at the moment.

      • Justtyn Hutcheson

        Band 4 is only in select markets. The vast majority (95%+) of their LTE is on Band 13.
        Also, VoLTE is still a ways out. Verizon still needs to figure out how to lock out devices and not violate the Block C regulations. The N7 might have been a test to see how bad public/federal outcry would be. At least, that’s kind of what it looked like to me.
