OnePlus One now official: design & power starting at $299

OnePlus is a start-up company led by Pete Lau back in 2013 when he left Oppo to begin anew. Now, months after continuous teasing, OnePlus announces its very first smartphone, the One, which they continually market as the flagship phone killer.

The OnePlus One boasts top of the line specifications from a 5.5-inch full HD display to a Snapdragon 801 CPU paired with 3GB RAM. It also touts a complete set of things to look forward to such as the 13 megapixel camera, the bottom-facing JBL fine-tuned speakers and the flat & minimalistic CyanogenMod OS that runs the show.

OnePlus One specs:
5.5-inch full HD 1080 x 1920 display
2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 8974AC CPU
16GB, 64GB internal memory
13 megapixel f/2.0 rear-facing camera
5 megapixel front-facing camera
Bluetooth 4.0
CyanogenMod 11S (based on Android 4.4 KitKat)
3,100mAh battery
8.9 x 152.9 x 75.9 mm (dimensions)
162g (weight)

OnePlus has not only very much managed to solve the specifications for us, but also the design and the price. The 16GB version starts at $299 and the 64GB version is at only $349. There will be two color variants available – sandstone black and silk white. Personalized textures will be made available too to add a little twist into their experience (bamboo, wood, denim and kevlar).

The company has not mentioned the Philippines as a country that it would launch the phone in, so we still have no idea when we can get this phone into our shores, but they have mentioned that it will be available in launch countries in the following months, Q2.

    this is a beast. Tsina-challenge ang nexus sa price at specs hehe. Sana ganyan din ang price pagdating sa pilipinas.

  2. Kunsel says:

    Around 20k siguro yung 64GB nito pag may online seller na kukuha.

    If mag parallel import from HK.

    16GB – 2599 HKD
    64GB – 2999 HKD

    Buti nalang Snapdragon, di tulad ng ibang phone na mediatek ang gamit

    • Paragonimus says:

      This! Isang malaking sapak sa mga overpriced foreign brands, at isa pang malaking sapak sa mga underperforming, MediaTek-carrying, rebranded China phones from local brands kapag dumating to sa ‘Pinas…. O, ipa-Johnny Air na yan!

      …pero magkakatalo lang sa aftersales service. At wag lang matanong na “anong phone yan?”… “OnePlus”… “Ano yun?!”

  5. meh says:

    shyet. i was planning to get a Nexus 5 pero when this one came out. wag muna. sana iimport ni ninang kim o ni hotgadgets hehe. problema lang yung screen na 5.5″ masyadong overkill XD

  7. Adrian Villarina says:

    P17K for a 64GB model, not bad. Those specs though, but if ever we get one here our LTE band is not supported. What a bummer. :(

    Btw you can subscribe at their site and you can order one through there and have yours shipped here on May when it releases.

  8. hanep says:

    ganito dapat ang new entry. lupet sa specs hanep sa price.

    wala ng chance oppo dito.

  9. Ngangot says:

    Gusto ko sanang kumuha ng LG G2 eh, pero nung makita ko ito, teka muna!

    baka eto nalang kunin ko! swabe ang specs for the price! LOL

  10. Rockafella says:

    You’re kidding me. Pls don’t play with my emotions Yugatech!

  11. Azardo Talodo says:

    Tamang tama, nag iipon ako ngayon. Makakabili ako nyan. Iphone? Para sa mayayaman, ikaka sosyal nila pero para sa aming nasa middle class. Astig ang Android.

    • Agron says:

      Tell us how did you come up with the idea? It’s all about PREFERENCE and if you think that all iPhone users are all rich (v.v. all rich people are iPhone users.) then think again, get a book, and read it. Study until you refine your way of thinking. I hope that you’re venial with that statement.

  12. juztin888 says:

  13. J says:

    Specs? Check.
    Build Quality? Check.
    Price? Check.
    But this phone is not for me. Unfortunately, this phone is just too damn big!
    I hope they release a 5-inch version of this.
    And please get rid of those godawful capacitative buttons.

  20. edwinjr says:

    Nice specs…. Dream phone????

  21. Benchmark says:

    Wow kevlar back…like my motorola droid razr. :-)

  22. vic says:

    kung i cacalculate mo halos parehas lang din sa price range ng MID phones\

    binase ko yung calculation dito

    1845.16 [FedEx Intl Economic Shipping [provided na galing Hk yung package :
    2394.42 [custom tax : ]
    13397.38 [299*current exchange rate]

    13397.38+2394.42+1845.16= Php17636.96, di pa kasama ang VAT na ipapatong kung ireresale ito sa pilipinas

    Syet! Plano kong bumili ng Nexus 5 or LG G2 pero nagbago isip ko nang makita ko specs ng Oneplus One! Sana magbenta si Ms. kim neto para mura lang

  25. amatzz23 says:

    Tingin ko ibebenta ito if ever magkaroon sa pinas..same price as Nexus 5. Around 20k++..Dahil kun may magbebenta nito dito..kahit sabihin na natin mkkuha sila discount dahil bulk naman ang bibilhin nila..idadagdag pa sa cost yung shipping, tax (import, withholding, etc) at kun ano pa bayarin ang dapat ibayad

    Ang advantage ng Oppo kya yung price nila identical sa international price kasi may office sila dito sa pinas..kya kung magkaganun..mag Oppo na lang ako..expandable pa memory
