First alleged picture of the OnePlus One shows the rear of the affordable superphone

alleged design sketches from a while ago do mention an aluminum unibody. In any case, it won't be long now until we see the real deal -- the OnePlus One's unveiling event is set to take place in Beijing on April 23.So what do we have here? Well, apart from the very aggressive embedded motto, we can also barely make out a metallic encasing for the 13-megapixel Sony sensor and the dual LED flash module immediately below. Beyond that, it's hard to tell whether we're looking at plastic, though
But that's not all, as we've also have a duo of shots of the motherboard that will be powering the One. The reason we know that this is, indeed, the One's motherboard, is simple: OnePlus has seen it fit to embed its logo on the very logic board.

For all that hype they are giving it, it doesn't look incredible at all from the back. Hopefully it won't be a disappointment that all these hype are building into.

Well the shape is that of the nexus 5 so that's a plus. Other than that the materials are the only thing left aesthetics wise and I don't personally care about that. Just want to see the OS performance for this thing and not much else.

They can hype it all they want, BUT, if the specs that have been leaked or mentioned to be true by OnePlus, and after a few days of people getting it and seeing if it holds out, I'm getting one. Not because it is the "cadilac" device, but because it's screen & specs are higher than my current device, galaxy note1 (international unlocked). I'm not looking to be a follower of "trends". People laughed when I got the Dell Streak, pretty much the 1st phablet, even though it had its faults, was tied to at&t which didn't really support it, and Dell didn't really support it, there was a community on XDA that did. When the g-note came out, I jumped on it right away, even though the apple & samsung small screen people were laughing. I don't follow trends, I buy devices that fit my tastes, and the 5-6" screen fits my needs perfectly. If the OnePlus One holds out to be as good as a device, that the 5-6" screen "big boys" have, why pay in some cases (off contract) almost DOUBLE the price, for the same thing? You know XDA and others, along with CM will mod, upgrade and support the thing, so why not get one?
