There’s a Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.5GHz in a quad-core configuration is one of the top bullet points for OnePlus’ One, a smartphone priced at $299 — a price bracket that immediately puts it against the Nexus 5. But why the Nexus 5 and not every other smartphone? Because, it specifically runs Cyanaogen 11S (software layer), on top of stock Android 4.4.2 — that’s the perfect way to get an enthusiast’s attention.
A 5.5-inch full HD resolution screen with 401ppi, 178-degree viewing angles, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is what the user would stare into most of the time, with 3GB of RAM to back the processing power of the Snapdragon. 16GB of storage in white or 64GB of storage in black versions are available.
Oh! Don’t forget about the power source: there’s a humongous 3100 mAh LiPo battery. A Sony Exmor IMX 214 13MP camera sensor is used for the rear camera with a dual- LED flash with 4K video recording or 720p video at up to 120fps. Otherwise, you get the usual crop of wireless features: WiFi, LTE support, NFC, Bluetooth and GPS+GLONASS.
