Confirmed: OnePlus One will be launched in the US, Canada, UK and other countries


Earlier today, we showed you what seemed to be the first photo of the CyanogenMod-based OnePlus One smartphone (although it was only an image of its rear side). Now, not long after that, OnePlus published a list of countries where its handset will be officially available to purchase. 

At the moment, there are 16 markets on the list:

  • US
  • Canada
  • UK
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Netherlands
  • Belgium
  • Austria
  • Sweden
  • Denmark
  • Finland 
  • Hong Kong
  • Singapore 
The OnePlus One will be sold unlocked, costing under $400 / under €350 (or under £290 in the UK). We’re assuming that the Chinese company will want to release the new smartphone in more markets besides the ones listed above. However, this hasn’t been confirmed yet.

OnePlus already revealed some of the features of its One smartphone, including: a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13MP Sony Exmor rear camera with 6 lenses, quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB / 64GB of internal memory, and a 3,100 mAh battery. The new handset will be officially announced next week, on April 23, and may become available shortly after that.

They should bring in India and China. These two countries are now big market for smartphone.

Also, Russia and Brazil. But it looks like the bastards wanted to release the phone for "rich" countries.

Hope it lives up to its hype

I hope so too. Always good to see a new company tries to raise to the top. Beside, what they are offering is just crazy o.O

5.5 is too much. It could be perfect smartphone, but only if it had 4.5-4.7 screen. There should be smaller version for people like me who don't like having small TV in pocket

I agree, but it depends what they do with the phone body. I just tried an Lg G2 the other day and that thing is amazingly thin for such a gigantic screen. It is possible to make 5" comfortable. 5.5" though? I'll have to see it first...

Even they haven't leaked the design. Surprise? Might as well be a disappointment then. Who knows?

It would not surprise me if the OnePlus One is the ugly girl that has a great personality.

I am actually quite irritated when I see more news of this OnePlus One. The news are the similar everywhere, and no device has been seen. Empty barrel noise. They think this is marketing but I think it is just empty and irritating marketing. It has gone for too long.

For too long? It's only been four months. When do rumors of the next iPhone or Galaxy S start? Immediately after the latest launch? At least the information we're receiving is official, straight from OnePlus. I'd rather four months of substantiated evidence in my newsfeed than twelve months of unsubstantiated rumors. You only have to be annoyed for one more week, at any rate.

Rumors and news are different. iPhone & galaxy s = rumors oneplus one = news, therefore official.

Can't agree more! I'm seriously considering buying this device (hell, I'm about to kick myself in the ass for not participating the in Lisbon chase game as it was so easy) and I'm already fed up with the controlled leaks, day after day... I don't know if it's bad marketing or not but the hype is there. But we have yet to know what the device looks like, it's size (we just know it's smaller than Xperia Z1), whether the buttons are on/off screen (or both), whether the case is aluminum or plastic, whether there is some battery saving tech and also what is the new technology innovation they have hinted... So, as you see, this will be a long week until the 23rd. :P

Yes, it will be a relief when the seemingly endless amateur striptease of a marketing campaign finally ends in another week. When these sorts of things work, the striptease really has to be exciting. And without actual hardware/software photo reveals, well, the OnePlus striptease has been anything but exciting. Mostly their site is just boring half-witted text speculation -- not even real commitments -- about markets and chips and suppliers. Yawn. Just show the phone and get it over with. People just want to see the real thing, not sort through endless message forum posts about Qualcomm chips and LTE bands.

India, motherduckers! It's the fastest growing smartphone market in the world, and yet it's always ill-treated with sheetty variants (read Samsung's Exynos chipset), ridiculous price tags, and non-availability of phones.

Ikr! US already has the likes of Nexus 5 and other cheap devices. I think India should have been there. Pretty sad.

Ridiculous price tag ? Blame your government's tax Nonavailability of phones ? Yeah its not like you indians would buy them. Shetty variants ? Well , the tax is just too high. If they bring in the good variant it will be more expensive than the current one , with high tax not many Indians can afford. Even if they can , many Indians are cheapskate that would rather get the cheaper variant . No offense

Glad this thing comes to the US. And I hope it lives up to its hype.

Sorry but the Oneplus One is the worst phone name in the existence of phone names

Let's just wait and see the official word. Less than 10 days. May be good. May be bad. Time will tell.

Any chance it will work on Verizon's LTE network? If so i'm in for one.

Sweet Jesus... If a startup like OnePlus can get their device launched in Canada, there's no excuse for other, larger companies not to be able to do the same. I am looking at you, Nokia!

I hope they will release it in Russia, at least add Russian language.

Hmmm...this or the Moto X... I need to find out who did the cellular hardware...

hmm I really hope oneplus will be as good as it can be, because if it sells well enough it could end up driving prices of other phones down, all around win for customers.

Will it run CDMA networks like Verizon....
