OnePlus One Specs


The OnePlus One is now official with its jaw-dropping price and insanely limited (plus confusing) availability. Once you can potentially purchase one, though, I’d imagine it will be well worth the $300 and $350 price tags.

After all, OnePlus managed to include the most premium specs of the moment in a phone that is half the price of the Samsung Galaxy S5 at full retail. We are talking the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 13MP rear Sony camera, 5MP front camera, 16 or 64GB of storage, and a 3100mAh battery, all in a body that is only 8.9mm thick.

The phone should also work quite well on AT&T’s LTE network here in the U.S. It technically supports T-Mobile’s band 4 as well, but the GSM compatibility might not be there, at least according to the official spec sheet below. 

Impressed by what you are seeing?

    all Samsung phone Charger: Samsung mobile phones require power
    to work. Without this, they’re as useful as a brick-probably even less. Your
    Samsung Phone charger is how these phones are powered. Without a power charge,
    the battery of most Samsung phones are able to achieve incredible lengths of
    duration with some phones lasting for as much as 48 hours without a charge.
    However, despite Samsung’s amazing achievement in battery life, you will still
    need to charge your mobile device from time to time. When that time comes, the CHOETECH
    Samsung phone charger will be the

  • This is Spartaaaaa

    Verizon or not, I’ll get one and use it as a tablet over WIFI 😉

  • mcdonsco

    Does anyone know if this would include an SPP bluetooth profile?

  • Younis

    better be an unlocked phone, so that i can bring it to my country.

  • macloo stanley

    my dear Are you frustrated when the battery dies in the middle of a
    conversation? Well, one important feature that people are looking for long
    battery life. But not many varieties of mobile phone give you a long talk time.
    Nevertheless, the problem otherwise resolved by http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZF6UD4/.
    Carry the charger with you wherever you go! It solves the problem to a great
    extent. So you would be able to ensure that you do not miss important calls.

  • Brian

    Nobody is missing wireless charging (Qi)?

  • Chris King

    We’ll see when CyanogenMod phone comes out how good it is. Never been a big fan of the rom as it was always too buggy. Hopefully now it will run better but there seems like a whole lot of smoke and mirrors going on here

  • Too big, not interested.

  • James Hill

    It’s got a 5.5 inch screen. Kellen disapproves.

  • jim

    Why don’t they just call it the ‘ 2 ‘,,, makes more sense, 1+1 just sounds stupid

    • flosserelli

      There wasn’t enough phones with “One” in their name.

  • LionStone

    “built-in” stereo speakers? Guess it would look kinda funny with external speakers hanging off it! 🙂

  • CaptainHowdy13

    I’ll have to see a review to be more interested. I don’t trust the company since its so new

  • maxx1987

    nice, but too big. couldn’t buy one anyway.

  • mcdonsco

    Certainly a really nice phone to say the least and with a 64gb(!!!) option for $350….Wow!

    But alas, there are too many fail points:

    -No wireless charging
    -No Verizon
    -No “normal” size option
    -No track record

    • flosserelli

      1. I wouldn’t say “no wireless charging” is a complete fail. Granted I’ve never had a device with wireless charging, and I am sure that I’d use it if I had the option, but it is really not that difficult to plug a phone into a power cord. Wireless charging is nice, but certainly not a “dealbreaker” imo.
      2. No Verizon is a fail only for people stuck on Verizon.
      3. I agree they should consider offering a smaller version, but I am not surprised they are only offering one size at launch. If this model takes off, maybe a smaller version will come later this year or next year.
      4. I wouldn’t consider “no track record” a complete fail, either. All OEMs must start somewhere. No one can blame you for being unwilling to give a new manufacturer a chance. But that is no reason to label them a complete fail (at least not yet).

        1. My phone has wireless charging and I do not think it is that special. Yes they have $10 Qi chargers now, but you still need one everywhere. And you can not readily pick up your phone and send a text while it is charging – or play some game, it has to sit there and charge.. So it is not that much of a fail. If people wanted, I am sure you could easily open this case and buy a non-OEM battery that has Qi enabled, sure it would not be easy if your trying to pioneer this, but maybe somebody will come out with an easy to follow guide to do this.
        2. I am sure as hell tempted to switch from verizon atm. Yes I “can” get 30+mbps dl, but with bandwidth caps, why does that matter (before when I had no caps, I blew through >200GB in one month >.> )
        3. Smaller version = less demand for both sides = >2 new models (smaller 16gb white, smaller 32gb white, smaller 16gb black, smaller 16gb white..etc) which really eats into the cost. They just went with what the market wanted “more-so”
        4. This should be obvious too to people. If no company could startup, then no globalization could readily happen due to a monopoly.

        • LionStone

          Wait, what? I regularly take calls and text with my phone on the charging plate. If you don’t it’s by choice not because you aren’t able to.
