OnePlus One release date and price unveiled


The OnePlus One brags about being the “2014 flagship killer”, and while it’s been a while since we last heard about a phone-killer (remember the times when every other Android phone wanted to be the iPhone killer?), the OnePlus has one rock solid argument to be the one - its price.

In the United States, the OnePlus One's price is set at the extremely affordable $299 for the base 16GB model, while jumping to a 64GB version increases the cost only slightly, to $349. That makes it half the price of the just launched Samsung Galaxy S5! Moreover, while rival companies like Apple charge a fortune ($100 to be exact) for a 2x bump in internal storage, the OnePlus One has decided to charge $50 more for a 4x bump in internal storage with the 64GB model it offers. That's what we call really aggressive pricing.

For international buyers, the new phone offers surprisingly great deals as well: while you’d expect the OnePlus One to cost €299 in Europe (that’s how major phone makers usually convert us prices into euros), the phone actually reflects the clear difference in value between the US dollar and the euro, and its price for Europe is set accordingly - to just €269 for the 16 gig version (€299 for 64GB model). You can see the full price list for different markets right below.


In terms of release date, we now have the company officially committing to launching the OnePlus One en masse in Q2 2014 (it's scheduled to arrive in mid-May), so this most likely, means that the phone will arrive in late June. However, in just two days, on April 25th, the phone will go on sale in limited quantities for a lucky few. At such a price, though, even if you're not first in line, the wait should be well worth it. 

The OnePlus One will arrive to the US and Canada, as well as to the UK, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Taiwan.

Yes,http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014/04/oneplus-one-is-a-high-end-phablet-with-cyanogenmod-for-299-unlocked/ For tmobile older devices need 1700/2100 support, for current models you need 1900 and lte4. The best factor of knowing what bands to work with tmobile is to look at the 925 since that is a tmobile exclusive hand set... LTE network bands: 4 . .LTE max data speed DL: 100 Mbps . .LTE max data speed UL: 50 Mbps . .WCDMA network: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1700 - 2100 MHz, 1900 MHz, 2100 MHz. .WCDMA max data speed DL: HSDPA - 42.2 Mbps . .WCDMA max data speed UL: HSUPA - 5.76 Mbps . .GSM network: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz. .GSM max data speed DL: EGPRS 236.8 kbps . .GSM max data speed UL: EGPRS 236.8 kbps .

How does Mid May arrival translate to late June? i don't get it.

I think one of the things that everyone including One Plus is forgetting is that for this product to be a Flagship killer is for it to be available on all US carriers. Sony is failing in this department but once they get on-board with all the carriers, they could outsell Sammy- which I would welcome as a Sprint user and PS4 owner. It would be so much easier if Sprint would have gotten rid of CDMA! If your wondering I am stuck on Sprint due to family all over CA having phones on my plan.

I'm gonna hold off from any other devices from now on and save my money for this phone... Man, I'm so freaking tempted now. xD

I suggest it would be better if they release a mini version of this phone/phablet with the same specs...

Thanks! Darn, if it did then I couldve "settled" with the 16GB model.

Yeah, real bummer. :) But still a great phone for it's price range.

A 64gb card would run you about $50 anyway, and with the wackyness of external storage and 4.4KK, one could argue that it's better to have all the storage internal anyway. Although a 64gb version with a 64gb (or 128gb!) microSD card would make for one hell of a phone.

The only thing I'm curious about now is if it is LTE capable on tmobile. Hopefully it will be like the nexus and have multiple bands to be compatible with most gsm carriers. I know this phone has 4g but if it doesn't have the right bands, it's useless. I'm really looking forward to this phone.

Great all round things but please launch it in India as well.

Sounds awesome. But I think it just might be only us waiting in line. The advertising budget is, YouTube.. Also the G3 will top everything that's out on it's release.

Holy crap! I was expecting $399 for the 16gb and $350-400 for the 64gb. It looks like they're following the India/China business model of only charging slightly more than manufacture cost and making profits on volume, rather than charging 2-3x more manufacture cost to fund the marketing. A $50 for a 16 - 64gb bump isn't much more than the difference between a 16 and 64gb microSD card, so that's extremely reasonable. Unlike the $200 jump the Cupertino douchecanoes charge for their fruit. Now, where's the OnePlus 8-9" tablet?

Instead releasing this in US...where more people will shell out $500 to buy a iphone....they should release in india...it'll be a huge hit....

It was never meant insult.. Americans have the wealth to buy phone for $650... While most indians don't.... That was my point... And most of us don't buy indian phones...we buy branded phones...
