Posted: 23-Apr-2014 [Source: OnePlus]

[The CyanogenMod/Android-based OnePlus One smartphone was announced today with initial availability in 16 countries. The device brings an impressive feature set including a full 1920x1080 display, quad-core 2.5GHz cpu, 3GB memory, and a 13Mpixel compound-lens camera. ]

Beijing -- Following months of anticipation, OnePlus today revealed their flagship device, the OnePlus One. Embodying the OnePlus motto of 'Never Settle', the OnePlus One boasts industry leading design, superior build quality and top of the line specs at a disruptive price point.

"By paying attention to the smallest details, taking a holistic approach to product design, and working with the best partners such as Cyanogen Inc. and Qualcomm Technologies, we have been able to create the greatest day to day user experience in a smartphone without compromise," said Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus.

Steve Kondik, CTO of Cyanogen Inc. echoed Lau's sentiments. "I am incredibly proud of the effort our team has put in to the CyanogenMod build for the OnePlus One. We've brought out the full potential of the hardware and complemented it with innovative new features to give users a fresh new experience and the tools to tailor the One to their personal style," said Kondik. "We will continue to expand this effort to provide a genuinely enjoyable and powerful operating system for the user." Attention to the Smallest Details

The OnePlus One was designed to be beautiful, timeless and comfortable in the hand. Embracing this design language, the One features subtle curves, sleek lines and a slightly raised, jet-black display. Even the smallest details belong uniquely to OnePlus, from the custom cut and engineered PCB boards to the specially designed battery and dyed inner casing. Each component is meticulously aligned and adorned with a OnePlus logo for a gorgeous device inside and out.Measuring only 8.9mm thick, the OnePlus One is ergonomic and easy to grip, with a tapered edge of just 4.6mm.

Debuting with the One is CyanogenMod 11S, a special release tuned to take advantage of everything the One has to offer. CyanogenMod 11S reveals the first phase of a unique visual experience blending the best of Android with the freedom CyanogenMod is known for. Unlike most OEM skins, there are no limits to customizing your One - mix and match thousands of themes or return to stock with the new theme engine and store.

Advanced Camera and Gallery apps make capturing and viewing memories even more fun. Record your world in perfect detail with 4K video. Then relive it from the cloud in Gallery, organized by your life.

Championing privacy has been a core part of CyanogenMod's purpose. SMS encryption between your One and CyanogenMod or TextSecure-compatible device means chats stay between friends. Privacy Guard keeps nosey apps at bay by helping you control how they use your data. Fast, Smooth, Powerful

The OnePlus One is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 801 processor with quad-core CPUs at speeds of up to 2.5GHz per core, making it the world's current fastest available processor in a smartphone. Custom Krait CPU architecture, integrated 4G LTE connectivity, Qualcomm® Adreno™ 330 GPU and 3GB of LP-DDR3 RAM combine to offer a fluid and lightning quick user experience.

"Today's premium mobile devices are measured by their ability to deliver immersive experiences through high-speed LTE connectivity and advanced multimedia, all without compromising performance or battery life," said Raj Talluri, senior vice president of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "We are proud to have our Snapdragon 801 processor powering the unique OnePlus One to deliver innovative new user experiences to consumers around the globe."

A 3100 mAh battery and energy efficient display work together to power the OnePlus One for more than a full day of use. Experience More, Capture More

The OnePlus One packs a 5.5" 1080p full HD JDI screen. LTPS and TOL (Touch On Lens) technology provide an incredibly sharp picture and make the gorgeous 178 degree vision display significantly more shatterproof.

A Sony Exmor IMX214 13 megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash delivers amazing shots day or night, made more precise and detailed by the 6 physical lenses. Even selfies are more beautiful with a 5 megapixel distortion free front-facing camera and extra wide 80 degree capture angle. High Quality and Useful Features

The OnePlus One is more than just amazing hardware. Uniquely engineered software offers features that you really want and simplifies your user experience without adding extra, unnecessary bloat. Voice command lets you wake the device or you can launch your favorite apps by drawing pre-set gestures on the sleeping screen. Choose between on screen and capacitive navigation buttons to suit your preference. Pricing and Availability
