Chinese startup OnePlus has been generating a lot of buzz for its first smartphone by promising top tier specs at an affordable price. Now we have a better idea of just what that price will be.

The OnePlus One will be available in 16 countries at launch, including the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Taiwan. And the company is promising the phone will cost less than $400 in the US, less than 350 Euros in Europe, and less than 290 Pounds in the UK.

While that makes the phone a bit pricier in Europe than the US, that’s pretty much par for the course and prices may include Value Added Taxes, or VAT.

The OnePlus One will features a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 64GB of storage, a 13MP rear camera, a 3000mAh battery, and a custom version of Android 4.4 KitKat developed by Cyanogen Inc.

About the only thing OnePlus hasn’t yet announced it just what the phone will look like — but clues are starting to emerge.

A picture from the OnePlus office showed up on Chinese social networking site Weibo recently, giving us an idea of what the back of the phone looks like.

Meanwhile alleged photos of the mainboard appeared at the OnePlusBBS this week.

  1. I’d consider buying from a new OEM if they provide official Ubuntu images in addition to CM ones. I’ve been interested in Ubuntu phones for a while but want something more powerful than Nexus. Unless this has no SD card, USB 3.0 and removable battery. If so, I’ll pass.

  2. on the oneplus one forum, they indicated the USD prices in Canada is due to the dropping of the canadian dollar value compared to the US dollar. I don’t know anything about that sort of thing though

  3. Will this have USB 3.0 and an SD card slot (preferrably accessible from the outside for quick swapping)?

    1. lots of discussion on the forum. but so far there is no confirmation on the microSD slot. I want removable battery and microsd slot. I can live without one, but not both

  4. The one thing I really wish someone would do with Android is, get away from the reliance of a PC to do anything — WebOS was great about that, you could use a PC or do most anything without having to hook it up.

    Would be nice to see CM take a step to make their version of Android less dependent on the PC.

    1. One time while in Asia, a Chinese guy asked me, which state is Canada in?
