The folks over at OnePlus continue to keep the media machine spinning. Over the past few weeks it has revealed tidbits of information about its first smartphone called the OnePlus One. Most of the specifications have been revealed but so far it hasn’t shown off the device itself. The announcement has been scheduled for April 23rd. Today the company confirmed that its first smartphone will be available in 16 countries at launch.
At first OnePlus seems to be targeting the West. There aren’t a lot of emerging markets on the list despite the fact that OnePlus One has been competitively priced. The CEO has already confirmed that it will sell off contract and unlocked for under $400, and this is a phone that will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5GHz and coupled with 3GB of RAM.
According to the list provided by the company, OnePlus One will be initially launched in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong and Singapore. Additional markets will follow after the launch.
OnePlus One is going to tout a 5.5 inch 1080p display, 16/64GB of onboard storage, 3,100mAh battery and a 13 megapixel Sony Exmor rear camera with six lenses. One paper the specifications look good, but we have to hold the verdict until we actually see what it looks like and exactly how the device performs.
