OnePlus begin to leak teaser details about the OnePlus One flagship smartphone, first fact is it will have LTE and will support a wide number of categories!

LTE was already the only fact that we officially knew about the OnePlus One smartphone, but today the young company confirmed the fact with details of which LTE categories the phone will support.

According the OnePlus Google+ plus post, the One smartphone will have support for 4G LTE bands 1/3/4/7/17/38/39/40/41. Those 9 bands cover most major LTE networks bar one! It looks like OnePlus don’t plan on offering a device which will play nice on Verizon in the U.S!

We can also assume that the OnePlus One will have WCDMA and GSM support. The phone is also rumoured to have a variant of the Snapdragon 800 (possibly the 805).

      Well yeah,for one,it almost identifies the processor,and second,knowing the bands well in advance will save poor souls the agony of waiting for something that doesn’t work where they live [JiaYu G2F I see you] and it’s an official manufacturer announcement so yeah,it’s news. What’s your beef?

      Nice idea, should I start with O or go in alphabetical order?

        Andi you should not respond to a being that never grew to adulthood remember in that fixed state that entitiy’s:

        Obstination Evokes Understanding Nothing Plausible, Logical, Sentience.

    Andi: any idea if this will sport a dual sim option? Many killer options for dual sim flagship phone, but do you know any that supports LTE?

    • January 23, 2014

      I doubt it 🙁

    • January 24, 2014

      Qualcomm doesn’t support dual-SIM natively with their 800 series processors (although they added it to the 64-bit 410), so it’s a LOT of work to implement it. I don’t think anyone actually has ever done dual-SIM with a Qualcomm chipset.

    I hope it has the AWS T-Mobile bands (2100/1700). This phone seems interesting and having support from Cyanogenmod is huge.

    • January 24, 2014

      T-mobile doesn’t have LTE at 2100. And 1700 is Band 4, which they said they’re going to support.

      • markt9002
        January 24, 2014

        I’m talking about those bands for HSPA+. HSPA+ is plenty fast. LTE isn’t really needed in my area.

        • January 24, 2014

          OK. But the article (and leak from one Plus) was about LTE frequencies.

    This page is REALLY useful when evaluating LTE bands: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks

    So the One Plus One will work in the following places:
    Nearly all of Africa
    All the Caribbean (except Tricom in Dominican Republic)
    South America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela (Digitel))

    North America (Canada, USA (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon(limited), Sprint (limited)))
    Asia everywhere but limited in Japan
    All of Europe (except Belgium, although many carriers have unsupported band 20 coverage)
    All of Mid-East
    Oceania (Australia, Fiji, New Zealand)

    It’s a shame they couldn’t squeeze band 20 into the mix as well. There’s a lot of band 20 stuff in Europe now, or coming up soon.

    This mutli-mode antenna is really a great feature!
