OnePlus NOT considering Windows Phone handset; launching the One in India soon
posted by Paul.K / Oct 14, 2014, 6:46 AM
The company will launch the 64 GB version of the phone first, followed by the 16 GB version after an unspecified amount of time. OnePlus is also building a small, specialized team of employees based in India, to provide support for the new customers – something that has not been done for any other country, with the company's support based only in China.
Pei did mention a couple of interesting things, regarding the OS for future OnePlus handsets. First, he revealed that OnePlus has set up a software team to develop an in-house OS (a heavily skinned Android sounds more probable), which means that the company may be looking to do away with CyanogenMod for its next phone.
Secondly, he revealed that the company is looking into building a Windows Phone smartphone. Whether that would be a seperate unit, or the current flagship, loaded with WP, instead of Android (a-la HTC One (M8) for Windows), is not revealed.
Update: This was denied by OnePlus. There was, apparently, a miscommunication between Mr. Pei and The Economic Times. In reality, this is what he meant to say:
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 3100 mAh

I bought OnePlus ONE for CM only... If they are going to bring their own UI or WP or color OS (like they launched in China), then 1+ will lose its s/w side strengths imho...

More OEMs coming on board, wouldn't mind trying out the cheap Win Jr as a portable music player.

They wont need to compete with this as long as Oneplus has such problems with fulfilling inventory demands. Maybe if they sell a hefty chunk of phones, in the 8 digit range, that will make them worry, otherwise they'll keep doing what they're doing.
