OnePlus One features a 13MP Sony Exmor IMX214 rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera

The CyanogenMod-based OnePlus One is shaping up to be a really nice smartphone, especially considering its expected retail price, which should be lower than $400.

Today, OnePlus confirmed new features for the upcoming handset. So we now know that its rear camera is a 13MP Sony Exmor IMX214 one. This was chosen because the smartphone’s aim “is not to compete with DSLRs, but to offer a portable product that performs well in real-life conditions (without an ugly protruding camera).” The 13MP Sony camera has a f/2.0 aperture (good for taking photos in low-light environments), and “unique 6 lens optics” to “avoid any low aperture distortion while also enhancing the image quality and colors.” There is also Image Stabilization Plus (IS+), but it’s not clear if this means Optical Image Stabilization, or just enhanced Digital Image Stabilization. As for video, the camera can shoot in 4K, or in 720p at 120fps. The front-facing camera of the OnePlus One will be a 5MP unit.

Cameras aside, the new OnePlus smartphone will come with a 5.5-inch display (1080 x 1920 pixels), quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, an always-on, always-listening feature (similar to what the Motorola Moto X is offering), an aluminum body, and a 3,100 mAh battery. There are still features that have not been announced, but these will be revealed in the near future.

Their marketing strategy is shameful. If their phone is anything competitive then I might take that back. But at 5.5" 90% of people in america will not care.

When is the official release date?? Availability? Does it really worth if I upgrade my Nexus 5 to OnePlus One?

It depends if you like your Nexus 5 or not. It does seem One+ is going to be a pretty good phone. I only have one concern. Since they are a new company, their software might be ehhh. But I think it's going to run on CM. So I would wait until the phone comes out for a week or two and see the review to see if it's worth it for you to upgrade from Nexus 5

Think it would be wise to see what the Nexus 6 will offer.. It will come down to 1+ vs Nexus 6 vs Note 4...

It will be 1+ vs nexus 6 due to price point. And note 4 will be a clear winner in power and productivity department. ! :)

They're releasing the specs of the phone one at a time before the announcement. March 16th was the day they were releasing the camera specs. They're releasing another bit of information next week it looks like, as you can see below March 16. March 25th, I guess. I know the first number is a 2.

they never said it was gonna be the announcement day they are revealing the specs first, then they will announce the phone as they said it will be available on the market in Q2. I believe this gonna be a very revolutionary Android phone. a 5.5" display in a body smaller or at the same size of Xperia Z1 powered by Snapdragon 800 and running latest Cyanogen Mod. can't wait.

Note 3 is 5.7 and it's almost the same size as the Z1.
