OnePlus One Owners Will Wake and Unlock Their Phones With Voice Commands

OnePlus One with CyanogenMod customizations to be released in the first half of the year

OnePlus’ upcoming CyanogenMod powered smartphone is looking pretty sweet, and a new revelation about the device revealed today makes it even sweeter. According to a forum post, we now know that the OnePlus One smartphone will include a voice recognition feature which is similar to that one Motorola phone that everyone went crazy for last year, the Moto X. The OnePlus One will include the ability to wake the phone from its slumber by uttering a hotword or simple phrase. That’s not all though – OnePlus is promising the usage of voice commands as a security feature as well, allowing you to unlock your OnePlus One with just your voice.

“Tired of unlocking your phone before interacting with it? Pins and fingerprints are a thing of the past! Ever wondered how would it be if you could command your phone to set up an alarm or do a search on Google without having to use your fingertips? The future is now!

We’ve developed a new voice recognition/command feature based on Qualcomm’s technology which the Cyanogen team has implemented into our customized version of CyanogenMod OS. Now, you can train your OnePlus One to recognize your voice and perform different tasks even when the phone is locked!

Pretty sweet. It seems like the OnePlus team, which is comprised of ex-HTC members has got a few tricks up their sleeves after all. The company is taking to a piecemeal advertising campaign, releasing little snippets of info via Twitter mostly, and forum posts as well.

So far, we know that the One Plus One will be rocking a new version of CyanogenMod, a 5.5 inch screen, a 3100mAh battery, and will release in the second quarter of 2014.

I’m definitely interested in what the OnePlus One team comes up with, and can’t wait to see the OnePlus One in action.
