Let’s be honest, OnePlus news probably isn’t going to stop until the OnePlus One is in the hands of the public. With the phone’s May 21st launch (for invited customers, May 28th for general customers) in China, Chinese media outlets are starting get their hands on the device and we are starting their take on it.
There was an unboxing post for the OnePlus already, but only the CyanogenMod version of the device. The OnePlus is supposed to run not only CyanogenMod, but also ColorOS, Smartisan OS or MIUI v5 if the customer so chooses. These appear to be the first images and videos of the ColorOS version of the phone.
You can check it out below, as well as some unboxing images of the device. No word on if the other ROMs will be available at launch.
As an added bonus, here is a new AnTuTu score for the OnePlus. An AnTuTu score of the device leaked in the middle of last month, but with more people getting their hands on the device we should see an increase in the number of people testing their devices on AnTuTu and we should get a better idea of how the device performs in the real world.
Gizchina News of the week
In this particular test, the OnePlus seems to have scored 2000 points less than it’s pre-reveal “leak” earlier this month, but that isn’t surprising. The image doesn’t specify which ROM the device is running, (it comes from a different source than the images) it could have a different software configuration, or it could be due to slight variations in each unit. Regardless, its score of over 36,617 still put it comfortably in front of the Samsung Note 3 and Galaxy S5 and the HTC One m8’s AnTuTu X score (that is, the AnTuTu score after accounting for HTC’s “optimization feature“).1, 2, 3]
