On their website, One Plus is calling out One Plus One as being a 2014 flagship killer – a little too bold from a new brand, if you ask me. But when we take a look at the specs, we start to believe their claim.
Inside One Plus One we can find a Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 chipset, the exact type of 801 chipset Galaxy S5 is using. The difference between this version and the AB version used by HTC One M8 (for example) is that the Adreno 330 GPU is clocked at 578MHz. If that was not enough, One Plus One is one of those select smartphones that come with 3GB of RAM. And the storage versions are also appealing – 16Gb or 64GB.
The 5.5″ display comes with Full HD resolution (1920×1080), more than enough if you ask me, while the battery has a capacity of 3010 mAh. In the camera department we find a Sony Exmor IMX214 sensor and a fast f2.0 lens. Just like other flagships, One Plus One can capture 2160 @ 30 fps or 1080 @ 60 fps (real slow mo) but it also features the option to shoot 4K cinematic (4096 x 2160 @ 24 fps). The front camera is also flagship material, with 5MP and 1080p @ 30 fp recording.
We left the best for last – there are two commercial versions of One Plus One – the one that is sold in China, which features Oppo’s Color OS, and the international version, that is delivered with CyanogenMod 11s (4.4.2) from the factory.
