OnePlus One smartphone fits 5.5” display in 5” body

OnePlus has been raving on an upcoming smartphone that is determined to beat popular main players in terms of innovations. The latest update on the OnePlus One involves its Full HD 5.5-inch JDI display to fit inside a 5-inch body.


So far, what we know about the One is that it will sport a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor partnered with a 3100mAh battery plus a ‘mystery tech’ that they have yet to reveal (maybe on March 16). Now we get another update straight from the founder of OnePlus itself — the phone’s 5.5-inch screen will be coming from Japan Display Inc. (JDI) which is a collaboration between Sony, Toshiba, and Hitachi, and is known for producing great displays.

The company knew that 5 inches was the ideal display size in terms of handling, but people preferred a little extra screen space for functionality. So they squeezed in a 5.5-inch display into a 5-inch body.

“Believe it or not, there’s a OnePlus One under that Sony Xperia Z1, a 5-inch screen phone,” said Pete Lau, founder of OnePlus.


OnePlus teases that a 5.5-inch One is under that 5-inch Xperia Z1.

Moreover, the 400+ ppi IPS LCD display also “will feature TOL (Touch On Lens) modules that eliminate the distance between the touch sensor and display panel”. It will also be more sturdy, offering 300% more shatterproof than the competing OGS (One Glass Solution) technology.

The soon-to-be-released One will also have CABC and DRAM technologies to help conserve battery. These innovations sense when the contents on the screen are dynamic, and consume less battery when they are static. This way the 5.5-inch display uses less energy than that of the 5-inch even at equal brightness.

In addition, @evleaks has reported that the OnePlus One will be available in either on-screen or capacitive hardware buttons. So that’s another thing to look forward to.

    Now that’s an innovation.

    Wait for Nokia Nexus X next year. This one will definitely be big.

  4. Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a
    lot of work? I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal every
    day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  5. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!
