The OnePlus One with a custom build of Cyanogen is expected to launch on April 23, but so far we have only been treated with hardware specs. Today, the first screenshots of CyanogenMod running on the new phone surfaced.
Thanks to Engadget, which published the shots, we can see what appears to be the lock screen that shows the time, temperature, weather, remaining battery life and even the contents of a text message. Likewise, another “About Phone” screen leaked today shows Android 4.4.2 KitKat running on the device and on-screen menu buttons. Engadget said the build we’re looking at is called “CyanogenMod 11S,” which it surmises is the custom version that’s been created for the OnePlus One, though we don’t have any more information other than what we can see. We do know, however, that the phone will sport a Snapdragon 801 processor, so there’s plenty of power to play around with if OnePlus wants to add gesture-based controls and other functions.
Several teasers have revealed that we can expect a large 5.5-inch display, but on a body that’s similar to phones with 5-inch screens, which hints that the screen may stretch from edge-to-edge. The phone will also sport a 13-megapixel camera, a large 3,100mAh battery that promises all day battery life and a price below $400. OnePlus has been teasing the phone for several weeks now and we bet we’ll hear more leading up to April 23.
