OnePlus One will have 3GB of RAM and a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor

OnePlus One will have 3GB of RAM and a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor
OnePlus revealed new details about its much-hyped One smartphone (which will be officially announced later this month, on April 23).

One of the things that we didn’t know about the OnePlus One was the amount of RAM that it would feature. Today, however, the CEO of OnePlus confirmed that the handset will have 3GB of RAM - which should be enough for any tasks that you’ll throw at it.

The company’s CEO also re-confirmed that the upcoming smartphone would use a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC. It will be the 8974-AC model that’s clocked at 2.45 GHz. As you may know, this is the same SoC that’s used by Samsung for its new Galaxy S5 flagship (not in all versions, though).

OnePlus is planning to release its One in various markets around the world - hopefully not long after announcing it. The smartphone will be sold unlocked for less than $400 (or €350 in Europe). It will run a customized variant of CyanogenMod 11, also offering a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13MP rear camera made by Sony, and a 3,100 mAh battery.

OnePlus hasn’t revealed any images of the new handset yet, but we know that the device should have a premium build quality.

Doesnt matter, they will ship to your country. As long as your network is GSM it should work. Including LTE.

I think they will only ship their phones via an online store to the launch countries. :)

Wrong :) It will launch in over a dozen countries ;) Probably 13/14.

This would be the first time I went the import route for a phone. I dont see any US phone matching those specs for that price.

Really a promising smartphone. I just hope that it doesn't have the "killer" feature in negative mind.

I've been planning on getting the Sony Z2, but this OnePlus One is looking seriously tempting.

I hope it isn't only GSM compatible. I'd love to get one on Sprint, even just to give it a shot.

Unfortunatly, it won't be CDMA compatible...

How do you know? Have they leaked that too?

GSM is massively more used worldwide compared to CDMA, that is used basically on Japan and US... It's the same as imperial vs metric. One is used worldwide, the other, by a few brave ones.

A lot of countries worldwide have CDMA, it is virtually as prominent as GSM, at least outside of Europe and such. Europe and Africa are the only populated continents that have little or no CDMA presense.

I wouldn't mind checking one out, though I'm still kind of holding out for the LG G3

Well, thats a shame. I just bought the nexus 5, and then this phone is almost revealed. I hope this phone will be a big succes, So I can buy one from Oneplus when my contract ends.

Htc One M7, HTC One M8, HTC One Two Three... :| I hate Samsung but at least they choose some good names for their phones, there comes note 2 after note 1 not note 1 m8 or note 1plus or these kind of craps :|

This is not the One, or the One X, or the Big One, or the Little One. This is, in fact, the Other One.

@muser793 This is literally the dumbest comment I've seen this year.. This phone will only be a success if it looks good. It can have the best specs in the world, but when it comes to putting your money on the table, people are extremely shallow (Myself included).

I can't see how they're going to make money off this yet. Everyone always compains that phones are a hell of a hard business unless you overcharge like Apple or strike some good deals with carriers like Samsung. What's in it for OnePlus at $399? And what are they sacrificing to sell it that low? It better hit a carrier or some point... We've all seen how the Nexus phones failed to do much fo anything when they're available online only.

Let me tell u few simple facts . The iPhone 5s which has the best spaces in the apple world is sold for 600-750$ 16GB while the phone actually cost sold 250-320 $ . Those aren't just sayings these are are actual numbers that you might are apreoved by many websites . The galaxy s5 costs as between 600-800$ while the phone is estemiated to cost less than 400 $ . Just because the Oneplus one are saling their phone for a reasonable price doesn't make them have to comprise anything

dude, those prices are without research cost. I think GS 5 also cost around 250-300 $. Anyway, I agree phones are abit overpriced like laptops when they first appeared.

what's being sacrificed is a good margin on the device.

That makes sense. But that's also my question... How will they survive? They'll need an abundance of sales to sustain themselves up to their next device.
