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.

5.5-inch full HD 1080 x 1920 display
2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 8974AC CPU
3GB RAM
16GB, 64GB internal memory
13 megapixel f/2.0 rear-facing camera
5 megapixel front-facing camera
WiFi
3G
4G LTE
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! 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. Great OS excellent specs , and a very good price. I want it bad!

    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.

      The phone does support Bands 1 and 3.. so gagana LTE natin dito… if this is not released here, closest we can get is the Oppo Find 7a with similar specs and almost same price…

    • Ngangot

      As per Engadget, all bands for LTE are covered.

      I quote, “On top of the usual NFC, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 plus GPS radios, the One’s international version also supports LTE bands 1/3/4/7/17/38/40, as well as WCDMA bands 1/2/4/5/8. Yep, that’s pretty much the whole world covered.”.

    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.

    • 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.

  13. Nabasa ko na kailangan ka daw “mainvite” to be able to buy this. Medyo mas mahihirapan makabili :(

  19. 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.

  22. 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 : http://www.fedex.com/ph/
    2394.42 [custom tax : http://customs.gov.ph/references/tax-computation/tax-calculator/ ]
    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

  24. 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

    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
