Unlocked sub-$400 smartphone uses CyanogenMod, 13MP Sony Exmor camera
OnePlus has revealed it will be launching its first Android smartphone next week, at the same time as a photograph surfaced, allegedly showing the rear of the device. The OnePlus One, running a customized version of CyanogenMod's Android ROM, will be available to buy in 16 countries and will be priced at under $400, under 350 Euro, or the local equivalent, with the device set to be revealed on April 23.
The images found by GizChina reveal little about the smartphone, as it merely shows the back of the device with a centrally-aligned camera with flash. Another photo of the motherboard inside the phone also offers not much in the way of further detail, except that the company has etched its logo onto part of the board.
