oneplus one specifications

Here it is, the phone launch we have been waiting for these past few months! The OnePlus One flagship has finally launched. Here are the full OnePlus One specifications and launch details.

Today’s launch held in Beijing marks the debut of OnePlus. It is hard to believe with all the hype surrounding the start-up that they had yet to put our their first phone, well here it finally is and here are all the important OnePlus One specifications and details.

OnePlus One Specifications and features

oneplus one specifications

OnePlus had been quite open and honest about the OnePlus One, providing teasers and even announcing key specification details of the phone before the launch. If you had managed to miss earlier coverage then let me remind you.

Similar to the Oppo Find 7a the OnePlus One gets a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display from JDI with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Qualcomm provide the Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.5Ghz, plus there is a hearty Adreno 330Gpu and 3GB RAM on board.

Onboard storage options include either a 16GB version of 64GB model. There is no micro SD card so choose the memory option you want with care especially if you like to watch video or take plenty of photos. Speaking of the camera the rear sensor is a 13 megapixel Sony Exmor IMX214 with 6 lenses for better clarity, f2.0 aperture and dual LED flash. Camera features include 4K video recording, slow motion and all the usual still camera options such as panorama, HDR and filters. The front camera is a 5 mega-pixel 80 degree angle unit.

Audio is handled by built-in stereo speakers in the base of the phone, while 3 microphones in the body handle noise cancellation.

Gizchina News of the week

OnePlus announced the One with support for GSM, WCDMA 3G and LTE networks. Bands for each are GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900Mhz, WCDMA Bands 1/2/24/5/8 and 4G LTE bands: 1/3/4/7/17/38/40. WIFI 2.4/5Ghz 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Glonass, NFC and a digital compass are all there too!

A 3100mAh battery is also included and while the rear panel can be removed and replaced with optional Style Swap covers the battery is a non removable unit. Charging is via a USB 2.0 plug in the base of the phone. Unfortunately fast charging VOOC isn’t supported.

All that is left is the single LED notification light at the top of the phone (yes, it has various colour options) and a micro SIM tray (which must be removed to remove the rear of the phone).

CyanogenMod 11s

Interestingly for the Chinese market the OnePlus One will ship with ColorOS, so today’s launch didn’t cover much about the features found in CyanogenMod 11S. However, we did get some hands on time with the CM version (an early build) which features themes store, optional on-screen buttons (when activated this turns off the capacitive buttons), and CyanogenMod’s own camera application.

The CM version of the phone will also include enhanced security for your SMS via CyanogenMod’s privacy guard. We’ll bring more details of the features once the final build has been announced.

OnePlus One Price and availability

So overall there were very few surprises with the OnePlus One launch. Features were as they said they would and the phone looks pretty good, and feels better in the hand than the Find 7a. So what about the big surprises OnePlus promised at the?

The price is the biggest surprise! in the run up to the launch OnePlus promised the OPO would cost less than $400 and they were not kidding! The OnePlus One will cost just $299 or 269 Euros for the 16GB version silk white model while the 64GB Sandstone black version will be just $349 or 299 Euros.

As already mentioned the OPO will be available via invite, however the first 100 phones will be available through the OnePlus One Phone Smash, which as you can probably guess ask fans to smash their current phones for the chance to buy a OnePlus One for only $1!

What do you think of the OnePlus One? Is this the phone you had hoped it would be? Do you plan to smash your current phone to get one?

    looks fantastic, and the specs and price really do live up to the hype! Am really glad I waited, as the hype they built was starting to get very annoying. Most importantly (for a 5.5 inch screen) what are the dimensions? has that been announced yet? that’s the only barrier to sales I can see, as still the current sweetspot for handsets is 5.0 inch.

    Nice features – Good Price – Might be a big too big (I will wait for your full review). I”m not thrilled about the invite system and I still have no idea how it will work. I don’t plan on smashing my phone unless they guarantee that I will win 🙂

    Just one question – the Euro price 269/299 euros – this is the final price with taxes and everything?
    In case it s, i think this is the shut up and take my money phone, even if it’s 5.5 ing phone, this is really great deal.

    Fair price for the jump between 16GB to 64GB, this thing will be overpriced as f on my country though.

    Always funny to see company claiming they have best hardware etc but don’t even have a feature dumb phone has since 2000’s.

    No dual SIM = useless to me, no matter how good the specs are. And again Oneplus do what all “highend” developers do, don’t do dual SIM because it makes you look cheap. Or at least they think so.

    Well that settles it for me. Its officially out of the game. Too bad the rest of the specs are very solid and seem well thought of.

    Nice looking CM OS, clean looking phone design, solid specs, great prices – shame about invite system. And finally, with the announcement that CM is only on non Chinese handsets, which retain OPPO’s OS, it has become as official as it is likely to ever be, that OPO is a subsidiary of OPPO; their middling mass market ,e-commerce arm, leveraging off R&D, economies of scale purchases etc. and therefore so competitively priced that they can take on a much bigger market than the real flagships from OPPO.

    what this meen WCDMA Bands 1/2/24/5/8 ?

    “WCDMA Bands 1/2/24/5/8”
    Andi, are you sure about the B24? Looks like a typo to me and actually should be B4 instead.

    for me dual sim is very important and card expansion too, so i will not buy this… at now i don’t have a phone that have my criterias…so much smartphones and no one hits !!!

      This, annoyingly only Samsung S5 that managed to tick every box of what makes a good well rounded flagship but their phone is bloated with their useless software. Though being the most popular phone it’s only a matter of time til someone port a good OS for it.

      The price is crazy though.

  16. April 23, 2014

    It looks like a very nice phone. And we’ll be waiting until mid-June to see the first one ship. IF it’s not delayed.

    They made some compromises to try to hit the sweetspot, but that’s OK. They didn’t compromise on LTE support and Operating System.

    None the less, I think they should get rid of the “never settle” tag line.

    No dual sim, no sd card, non removable battery, killed this phone for me

  18. April 23, 2014

    If they can actually ship one ‘soon’ for €269/€299 then it’s a win and a great phone, Google (let alone Oppo) are going to struggle to compete. I’m guessing cash will buy a lot of forgiveness!
    Website says available from Q2, so May 31st?

    April 23, 2014

    So…oppo do all the work, the design, the r&d, the software and Oneplus just steals all that and undercuts them on the pricing? Sounds exactly like a startup chinese tech company.

    this phone will not show up for under 390 dollars on any international reseller…sadly

    can i import this one to india.. and when it would be available for selling ?

  22. Ivan Budiutama
    April 23, 2014

    that is one god damn spec with god damn price. I am sold, the only problem is the god damn limited production.

    Should Ubuntu for Android be available on this phone (or even better, Ubuntu Touch + CM) the 64 GB would be my choice now (with a Kevlar cover!).

  24. April 23, 2014

    Sorry, I can’t see any phone, I noticed that happens to me when they aren’t dual sim.

    People are seriously bickering about DUAL SIM and radio? Really? Really?

    • Yury
      April 23, 2014

      Dual sim is very win in undeveloped countries!

      • Allanitomwesh
        April 24, 2014

        Then good luck finding one with 3GB RAM.

        • Aeonia
          April 26, 2014

          seriously considering this one..dual sim is the last thing i would care to look for in a smartphone…

          • Allanitomwesh
            April 27, 2014

            Exactly,if this is is available in your country you’d be a fool to pass it up. Dual SIM? Removable battery? Get a $30 dumbphone to satisfy those urges dammit. Good to go.

  26. Yury
    April 23, 2014

    Very right move to reduce price below Xiaomi Mi3. Only doing like this make sense in OnePlus One.

    Nice and beautiful packaging device although there are a few accessories … I do not like the LED notification (better than the Find7) and the lack of ultra fast charging
