OnePlus One smartphone release teased

Image via forums.oneplus.netA new, open source smartphone known as the OnePlus One is making waves, thanks to a combination of its low price point and impressive specifications.

What makes the OnePlus One so special, aside from the value for money that it offers, is that it comes preinstalled with the CyanogenMod software, which is an adaptation of Android, designed to offer a different experience to Google’s official platform.

On the inside, it sports the cutting edge Snapdragon 801 chipset from Qualcomm, with a 2.5GHz quad core CPU and 3GB of RAM both present and correct. There is also a 13 megapixel camera, a 5.5 inch 1080p screen and a chassis housing the whole thing which is just 8.9mm thick.

The OnePlus One, which is built and designed by a Chinese firm, comes into the same league as big screen phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. But unlike its rivals, it should cost as little as £229 when it is on sale in the UK.

Such affordability is rare, although it is something that Google and Amazon have been trialling with their own-brand devices in recent years, so OnePlus One could become a bit of a hit.
