Details surrounding the OnePlus One are still pretty scarce, though Lau did point out that its device will be 4G LTE-enabled, and it’ll run a lightweight version of CyanogenMod. What’s more, CyanogenMod’s founder Steve Kondik also appeared on stage and made it clear that the OnePlus One won’t run the typical CM experience:
On the whole, and much unlike most major manufacturers today, OnePlus doesn’t seem interested in a creating a product for the mass market, at least not just yet. Instead, it appears that the company will be targeting the power user niche, or those who “never settle”, as Lau calls them. This all sounds pretty interesting, especially for those among us who have been craving something a tad more distinguished and unique. That said, this sure isn’t the first time we’re sweet-talked into paying attention, only to be disappointed at a later date.
