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.

Depends how big this phone is. It would be a serious contender to me if it is the same size or smaller than the note 3.

I wonder the reason why this phone is under 400$ is they don't need to invest on developing OS as they use cyanogenmod?

I do hope they deliver their promises since they already build the hype like this. On the other hand, the product seems (very) interesting, just wondering about the after sale like service/spareparts if the device somehow broken. It'll be a pain in the ass since they won't have a physical store.

5.5 inch, let's see how's the design and how big will be the bezels (I'm not a "HUGE BEZEL OMG" guy) as a 5-inch phone is already uncomfortable for my hands, a 5.5, will be even worse, so if it's not very compact, I guess I'll just hold on and wait for Z2 Compact (that I'll have to import, given that the Z1 Compact is not officially sold in the US AFAIK), or the next PureView phone, as long as they don't go further than 5 inches (side note: have you noticed that the phones are getting as big as they were 30 years ago (Look at Gordon Gekko's Cell phone on Wall Street movie), only getting 90% lighter? it's insane.)

You can hide the One plus under a Xperia Z1 so the bezels will be fairly small. I personally would rather have them use a 5 inch screen and which would allow them to hide it under a Moto X but they chose 5.5 for so e reason.

Here is the link to the article. It could still be taller than the Z1 which is disappointing but it's definitely narrower than the Z1. Then again, the HTC One M8 is taller than the Z1 and that only has a 5 inch screen.

maybe the design of the device has very slim bezels (i.e LG G2) allowing it to be comparable or even slightly smaller in size than its peers.

So basically Sony Xperia Z2 fused with Samsung Galaxy S5 to form this

I can't see this beat z2, m8, s5 (all 50 of them), g3 or iphone 6.

It has better specs than any of the above (That we know about anyway) and runs a community driven (Always better than manufacturer's) operating system which is designed for simplicity, speed and optimisation. Not to mention the ease of updating to the latest and greatest flavour of Android. I can EASILY see this surpassing them in terms of performance.. As for sales.. who cares? To be honest, I'd rather it did poorly. I don't know about you, but a fantastic phone that hardly anyone else has. That's the dream! The main reason I avoid Apple or Samsung is simply because EVERYONE owns them. That's down to advertising and marketing. Not product quality. Obviously the downside to poor sales is decreased likeliness of a sequel.

all I see right now is bla bla bla. Lets see what the phone can do when it comes out. It was a lot of talk with M8 camera having 10mp+ combined and with a great camera. 3gb..... samsung 3gb and premium design.... sony no bezel... yeah lets see what this phone can do when it comes out. What are the chances a nobody leapfrog those top manufacturer?

They are not planning on overtaking the top manufacturers of course, at least not now, for now they focus on bringing people a solid and powerful premium device. They have a really good philosophy and they had the great idea t partner up with Cyanogen Inc to build this phone, and an already strong and growing community behind them. I seriously wish them to succeed :)

Well lets see what they can do. I hope they can challange the top OEMs but I can't see that happening.

I agree with everything except the last part :) I wish them success so they can stay alive and bring us more stuff ;)

I get what he is saying with the last part...and I agree with it and One thing I have been thinking about with Android as a whole lately is its so popular now. Now that everyone and their grandmother is using Android....its losing its underdog appeal.

Yea, but if it does poorly, then the company will probably go out of business, and we'll have to wait for someone else to step up to the plate with the same ideals, and they would be less likely to if their predecessor did poorly.

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.

35. downphoenix

Posts: 3165; Member since: Jun 19, 2010

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

47. Luuthian

Posts: 332; Member since: Sep 09, 2011

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.

@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).

so what are the specs of OnePlus OnePlus TwoPlus One?! I mean seriously HTC?!! what the hell are these crappy names? 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.

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.
