OnePlus announces launch date for the One, coming on April 23

OnePlus One release date

We knew that the OnePlus One would launch sometime in the second quarter of 2014, but we didn’t expect it to be so soon. The high spec, low price, CyanogenMod-powered handset has quite a few people excited, and they should start preparing for the official launch of the device. According to OnePlus, the One will launch on April 23rd!

The OnePlus One is a smartphone that’s focused on providing a great user experience and high-end hardware for a lower price than other premium phones, while also offering CyanogenMod (a community-based ROM) and easy ways to modify the device. The company has had a very social and transparent approach to creating the phone, which is great.

The One will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera with 6 lenses and a 3,100 mAh battery. Those are pretty impressive specs for a device that should cost less than $400. Will you be buying one? Leave a comment, and stick around for the announcement in a little under a month!

    Since they’re all about different options for consumers, it would be cool if they offered a choice of getting the phone with android kit kat installed, rather than cyanogen mod. I’m really interested in the phone hardware, but not so much cyanogen.

    I’m guessing there will be an easy way to put Kit kat onto the phone since it’s meant to be a phone that’s easy to modify? Does anyone know?

    I’m torn between this one and the htc one. I’m waiting for it to be released and more info. I like cyanogenmod more than sense. That’s for sure.
