OnePlus has been taking an interesting approach to getting the word out about the company’s upcoming smartphone, the OnePlus One. Instead of bombarding consumers with a huge marketing campaign, the company has been slowly trickling out the news about the OnePlus One. Thanks to one of those little tidbits – namely a blog post from OnePlus staff member Pete – we now know more about the specs of the device.
According to today’s blog post, the OnePlus One will be rocking the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 instead of the Snapdragon 800. While the amount of RAM the device will be touting has until today been a mystery, we now know that the smartphone will come with 3GB of RAM, besting the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 in that department. The OnePlus One is rumored to come with Moto X-like voice recognition which will allow owners to wake their device and open apps with just their voice. The device will come with a customized version of CyanogenMod, CyanogenMod 11S.
With the move from the Snapdragon 800 to the Snapdragon 801, the OnePlus One’s processing speed will see a boost, albeit a small one. The OnePlus One’s processor will now run at 2.5GHz instead of 2.3GHz, and a higher GPU clock is achieved as well.
With a spec sheet that bests the best Android handsets out there today, OnePlus could just have a hit on their hands. The OnePlus One will be fully unveiled on April 23, and is expected to come priced at under $400 unlocked.
