More details on OnePlus One smartphone confirmed

We’ve previously reported of an upcoming CyanogenMod device from the Chinese company OnePlus that was said to battle the likes of other flagship Android phones for a lower price tag. Now, the OnePlus One smartphone has been confirmed of a Sony Exmor sensor that shoots 4K videos. More details after the break.


OnePlus’ CEO and former Oppo executive Pete Lau has revealed more of One’s specs in a forum post, mainly regarding its camera. Below are the new details:

6-piece 13MP f/2.0 Sony Exmor IMX214 CMOS sensor
Image Stabilization Plus (IS+)
4K video recording
120 fps at 720p for slow motion videos

According to Lau, their team opted to go for Sony’s Exmor sensor as it boasts an impressive f/2.0 aperture to capture more light. The problem is, low aperture cameras are often distorted on the edges so what the company did was to add an additional 6th lens to properly compensate for any distortion and at the same time enhance image quality and colors.


Choosing Sony for the phone’s camera isn’t really a surprise since its display will be made by JDI — a display manufacturer which Sony is a part of.

As a recap, here’s what the company previously confirmed for the One:

2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor
5.5-inch Full HD JDI display in a 5-inch body
Non-removable 3100mAh battery
Hands-free voice commands like the Moto X

The OnePlus One will make it on store shelves at the second half of the year with a price tag under $400 (or Php17,000). Stay tuned for more updates regarding this new player.

      Cyanogenmod is an AOSP Based rom… its a choice for those who go for custom roms…. and yes they do have updates…

      @infernowheels xempre understood na un na “official” updates ang tinutukoy niya.karamihan ang gusto talaga eh official,hindi ung custom roms.mahirap kase ibenta kung rooted na ung phone.di naman kase lahat ng updates eh stable,ung iba maraming bugs.

    @wew, dude, cyanogenmod is doing official updates for oppo on their cyanogenmod phones. Meaning Oppo phones are using cyanogenmod the way Samsung uses touchwiz, or HTC uses Sense. And not the usual custom roms they do for the community.
