First OnePlus One pic leaked ahead of next week’s launch

First OnePlus One pic leaked ahead of next week’s launchPhew, big week for leaked pictures of previously unseen phones. Earlier today I scribbled about the Amazon smartphone, and here we turn our attention to the imminent OnePlus One.

Admittedly the OnePlus One picture is comparatively terrible, but it’s a good excuse to chew the fat over the wallet-friendly super-phone.

Over on GizChina, big Andi relays a picture originally from, as far as I can tell, Weibo. The OnePlus One appears in a photograph tacked to a board, and in turn was snapped by a further smartphone. It’s like Inception for phone leaks.

There’s not a whole lot we can garner from the OnePlus One pic, though for what it’s worth, Andi has it on “very good authority that the design in the image is similar to an early prototype of the OnePlus One”.

He notes, however, that the OnePlus One design may have since been altered for John and Joan Public.

Plucky startup OnePlus, headed by former Oppo VP Pete Lau, is threatening to cause significant waves in the smartphone world. See, OnePlus One specs are very much at the top end of the scale, though we’re promised it’ll cost “less than $400”.

Official OnePlus One specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3,100mAh battery, 5.5in 1080p display and 6-piece 13MP rear camera.

All going well, the OnePlus One launch will go down one week from today, or “April 23” for calendar aficionados.

I've been following the One plus One for a while now, and was really excited by it. The specs are top notch, the price is due to be very low (they have revealed the price in Euros, and it's not sub $400 but it's still very competitive), it comes with Cyanogen mod installed rather than stock android which is interesting, and as a great bonus they've managed to fit the 5.5 inch screen into a body that's the same size as the 5 inch Sony Xperia Z1!

The list goes on, but unfortunately it was revealed that the phone won't support LTE band 20- which is the main band used for 4g in the UK. That's a deal breaker for me unfortunately, which is a real shame since I was really looking forward to this phone :( I guess I'll have to get the Xperia Z2 instead.

The company are one to look out for in the future though
