OnePlus reveals when the OnePlus One will be rolling off of the assembly line
The OnePlus One is not exactly rolling off the assembly line. The company has revealed its production schedule for the next few weeks. One hundred units of the 16GB Silk White OnePlus One have been built, and are being held aside for the winners of the contest where entrants are chosen to smash their current phone with a bat, dynamite or a truck.

From the middle of next month, to the end of May, OnePlus will build up enough inventory to cover all of the early invitations sent out to consumers who want to buy the phone. In early June, OnePlus will start to produce the larger capacity 64GB Sandstone Black model of its phone. By later in June, anyone who wants to buy a OnePlus One will be able to procure an invitation.

According to OnePlus, the public is really leaning toward the 64GB Sandstone Black model by a wide margin, over the 16GB Silk White variant. We don't think that OnePlus is artificially boosting the demand for its phone by keeping production low. Rather, the company says it is a matter of more people wanting the device than OnePlus had been anticipating.

While not everyone who wants a OnePlus One is going to be able to buy one immediately, this demand is a good sign of things to come, once supply can be ratcheted up to better meet this demand.

If this is really just a daughter company to Oppo I would easily believe that they're saving parts and assembly line time for the highly acclaimed Oppo Find 7a which would sell for a higher price and is widely accepted as a great phone that competes with the other flagship's. Honestly I just wish Oppo would open up an international store so buyers in the USA could buy a Find 7a here.

By late June Snapdragon 805 should be out. OnePlus should give the 64GB an 805.

its $350 off contract. Can't expect that when no other flagship have that SD yet. This is a great phone with a great OS. If you want the 805 then you have to pay $600+ for a phone and possible a SD card.

Ur ri8 and wrong i will buy a phone that i was willing to get in 2014 Not an update of 2013 I wanted S805 QHD 3G ram 32GB if no sd 5_5.5 inch U chose the brand and look.

I choose the brand and look? Are you really that stupid? SD 801 is 2014 tech as you can see from many flagship already this year. 3GB of ram is inside this phone. 64GB is inside this phone with no card. this got 5,5 inch screen. I already told you, if you want SD 805 with nothing other significantly improvement then go ahead and pay $600+ I choose to be smart and a phone that is damn good enough for me. You won't see a big difference with SD 801 and SD 805 at all. You just want the latest tech for the sake of it.

If supply is not met according to demands then it's a fail even what great phone it is. Look at Z2 NA yet.

No its not. This phone is $300 which mean many more people can afford it compared to Z2. What.. did you expect a complete new company producing apple or samsung numbers right from the factory and then expect it to sell? This is the first test. now they now people want it. next time they will maybe double the production.

Its not the number game with Apple or Sammy but should be easily available to every market as per needs, that's it and nothing more.

They made 100k already. Thats a huge amount for an unknown phone. You have NO idea how many who would have bought or wanted this. They made a guess and turned out many more wants it. Thats it. You have to understand you can't "research" how many would actually pay for it. Many more phone will now be made because people would actually pay for it. You act like someone who think this is easy to estimate how many would pay for it.

Well said. The OnePlus One is a harbinger of a new age. As it turns out, many people are completely sick of the horribly compromised phones coming from the mainstream Android vendors. So demand for the OPO is far greater than supply right now.

This phone is no bull*hit phone. The size is big yes but its also dirt cheap compared to the mainstream as you said. In every flagship there is something you will complain about. And I will totally take this gamble with this phone since the size is the only thing that can bother me here.

Pardon me, but... 100K? Where did you get that info?

Read the article man... holy sh*t.... 100k of the 16gb model.

I know how to read dude. And it clearly says 100 units, not 100k.

Even if this phone ships to most people in the July-September timeframe, it is still a huge and epic win. It's not winning the war against massively overpriced phones from name brand phone makers, but it is winning a battle. And it is a sign of things to come. Also keep in mind that the software will continue to evolve, so even if you don't get the hardware right away, when you get it, your phone will work better.

Timeframe should be reduced to only 1 month for announce-launch-release. Nothing much against this phone but availability is concerned.

By June that might be a deal breaker for me. I'm already unsure if I'd buy one in May but June? Even less likely.

Late June general availability is too late. The Hype is severely diminished and there will be more competition. If you are going to hype pre-announcement, then release within 2 weeks of your announcement. If you are going to release months after the announcement, you better say your hype/marketing machine for after announcement. Otherwise the wave dies.

The hype around the OPO has died with me now. I love the phone, but I was not expecting to have to wait possibly 3 months to purchase it. With the just announced LG G3 event, and the expected "Nexus 6" coming, I may hold out just for one of those devices instead.

Too bad that u cant preorder without invitation. Or else I would replace it with mine Note 2.

Although the 805 chip would be nice, users will see absolutely no difference between 805 and 801. They only situation where it will make a slight difference is high end gaming. Which I don't know why anyone would want to do that on a phone anyway. What's more important is the LTE bands it will support. We need phones to come out with LTE Band 12 support!
