Hardware startup OnePlus have really started to start the hype machine up over on their Facebook page this week, their latest post claiming that they have created the most attractive phone yet!

OnePlus was announced back in December and in less than a month have announced a partnership with CyanogenMod and hosted a brand launch event in Beijing. Currently to only detail known to to many concerning the phone is that it will have 4G LTE, but other than that OnePlus are keeping tightlipped about everything else.


Gizchina News of the week

This will the OnePlus Facebook page has sprung to life with explanations behind the name choice, promises that they will deliver a no compromise device, and that they believe that their flagship device will be the most attractive on the market!

Industrial design wise, we’re confident our phone is more attractive than just about any phone on the market.

Boom. We said it.

Only a few people have managed to see the OnePlus One flagship prototype and we are all keeping quiet 😉

    The most important thing about One Plus is that they think globally. Most Chinese (and others) companies think the world starts and ends at their home country.


    Vivo – excellent hardware but you can’t operate it in pure English (other languages are simply no option).
    Pantech – Top notch hardware (as good as anything you may think of), but… the world starts and ends at south Korea! (only short SMS messages, roaming warnings all the time since you are not in Korea and many other small things). Why Pantech doesn’t publish a plain English and international ROM is simply beyond my intelligence!
    MediaTek – It is time your GPS sensors should work properly on the western side of the world!

      Are you a business man? if you are, you’ll know why…the world starts and end in china! Take this: we are barely 170 million in Nigeria but I sometimes sit down and project possible sales figures. selling a mobile device to just 0.5% of the Nigerian population each year at a margin (net profit) of $5/ device will make me so much money. I mean like $4million p.a in profit….Now replace Nigeria with China and replace that 170m with 1,351 million and see what the final figure comes to….I bet it will make you pee your pants. so do you how the world starts and ends in China? Now if i was considering a second citizenship?….I may go for that “Blackanise” passport. LOLZ!

        First, it takes more than 10s of millions for me to pee in my pants…

        The problem is that these manufacturers start their work with a stock android which is international in the first place and then they are putting effort into making it a “local” version of android. Keeping android as close as possible to the stock version should be the minimal effort. In essence, the manufacturers are putting effort into locking other markets out; instead of taking the easy path of using stock android.

          I see where you are heading to and yeah I sort of think you may be right in what you are saying…but the truth is, these manufacturers are not yet focused on global domination (besides, they are suppose to be communists, remember?…lol). IMO it will take them a very longtime to conquer the Chinese market. Now consider how long it too the likes of Sony, Samsung, Apple, Nokia, HTC etc to get to where they are today….how many Chinese Manufacturers have put in just half of that time? I honestly don’t think there’s any! See? Until China becomes too small for them, they may not be too interested in the rest of the world and I don’t blame them. because “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”….Dude I also feel you pain… I am a Nigerian, and I am just as hungry for the cheap quality android as anyone else and if it is not coming the way I like it the it ain’t worth it….

    The thing is , will the share the source ? I’m thinking if they want to partner with Cyanogenmod they kind of have to.

    • January 22, 2014

      Pretty certain they will

    But will we get the source code ? Or will they follow in the Chinese companies “tradition” of not respecting the GPL.

    Enough! It’s time to put up or shut up!

    Yes, yes, yes. Every mother thinks their baby is beautiful, but nearly everyone else thinks it looks like a wrinkled monkey. They need to stop telling us how great it is, and show us the device.

    Considering how it takes major companies (like Samsung, Sony, and LG) 10 months to release a new device, I don’t see how they can do anything, in the 5 months they’ve promised, that isn’t just a lightly reskinned version of an Oppo phone. Unless they’ve actually got some device that was started by Oppo and spun out 80% though it’s design cycle to create OnePlus as a company, then I can’t see them delivering much on the schedule they’ve announced.

      ….. Does everyone really think my brother looks like a wrinkled monkey? Those bastards said he was “cute” and “adorable”.

      Getting back on topic though, I do see where you’re coming from. It does seem a bit odd how early it’s coming after its announcement, especially seeing how major manufacturers (other than Samsung) usually take a while to release their new devices to the market. Perhaps this project has been in the works for way longer than we think.

    Seeing will be believing. Also as well as looks, I hope everything else about the phone will also be the best !

    They designed a Galaxy S4 that runs iOS. Can’t think anything else, the other way around was done already…

    Im buying this phone or Find7 either should have a good dev support and long life of use. But hopefully they release the WCDMA version at launch cause in my county we use 2100mhz WCDMA, dont really about 4G for now, cause Mongolia is not even close to having not to mention testing.
