OnePlus One Phone Will Indeed Ship for Under $400 in US

oneplus one

It’s now official – the OnePlus One will arrive in the U.S. at a price under $400. The smartphone start-up announced the news this morning on Google+ and through an email to our inbox. Since we are only a week away from the April 23 launch, the only thing we need to know now is what the phone looks like and how customized the version of CyanogenMod is that it runs. It may be similar to this.

To recap, the OnePlus One is a phone created by a former Oppo executive who wanted to create the ultimate Android phone at an affordable price. It runs a custom version of CyanogenMod, is being hyped on a weekly basis with a slow rollout of spec announcements, and will launch in 16 countries shortly after it is announced on April 23. The phone is by all means filled with premium specs, so depending on its size, design, and overall package, could be one hell of an option. 

Here is a look at the list of confirmed specs and announcements thus far:

  • Ships with CyanogenMod OS (most popular aftermarket Android system) – Sub $400/ Sub EUR 350
  • 5.5″ 1080p display
  • 3100+ mAh battery
  • 13mp Sony Exmor camera
  • Snapdragon 801 MSM 8974 AC processor, 3GB RAM
  • Voice wakeup capabilities
  • Global LTE
  • 16/64GB versions
  • Localized sales and after sales experience in 16 countries:Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States

Anyone seriously considering this phone? Or is all this not enough until we see the phone in person?

  • Cory Wilson

    Looks like the nexus 5 has some real competition!

  • Frankiie

    you all complaining about screen, Go Die! smfh

  • bruce bell

    will it work on the verizon network?

  • Jason Melling

    I smell an epic fail. The hype around this has been too great.

    I would also prefer it at 5. I have big hands and an LG G2. Love it. Though its just about at the limit of comfortable to use in the hand. I can’t imagine much more bezel can be shaved. 5.5 is a phablet. If I get this phone it will be a compromise.

    My god why cant verizon have nice things

  • Phil W

    Wish the screen was between 4.7″ and 5″.

    • Sean Bello

      for me, this looks like the real downside. I’m probably fine without stock android

    • tomgillotti

      Buy a fruit product! lol They make “small” screens

  • Is it just me or is there really not that much to get excited about anymore…back in the OG Droid days when every new phone coming out had my eyes glued to the computer screen because android wasnt perfect and neither were the phones…every phone was closer n closer to beating the iphone…now android is so refined along with most hardware…i never find myself jealous of anyone or anything or feigning to get rid of my moto X…phones perfect(for me) i dont even miss all my rom tinkering so much…kinda makes me not care so much whats coming out now bc how much better are phones going to get…do i really need a uhd display on my phone when i yet to have one on my tv i play xbox one on? i honestly dont feel i do nor care enough to waste my hard earned money on such a thing…but to each his own…beauty of android…choice…always will be choices

  • Not for Verizon…no relevence to meeee….sad world we live in
