For a company which only made itself public in December last year, OnePlus is proving itself to be an exciting new addition to the smartphone world. After several months of teasing, it has now confirmed we’ll see its first smartphone on April 23. “We’re almost ready to showcase our baby to the world,” a moderator wrote on the OnePlus forum, before thanking everyone’s patience, and promising it’ll be worth the wait.
OnePlus is a company with ambition. Started by former Oppo Vice President Pete Lau, it aims to build the best smartphone the world has seen. Since its inception, OnePlus has been using its social networking channels to gather comments and opinions, ensuring the product it launches is close to what the firm’s potential future users want.
We don’t have to wait for a specification either, as it has almost entirely been revealed already. The phone will have a large 5.5-inch touchscreen made by Japan Display, but the device’s overall dimensions will remain very compact. OnePlus even published a picture of the phone underneath a 5-inch Sony Xperia Z1, which completely obscured the OnePlus One. The screen will have a 1080p resolution.
