There’s been quite a bit of interest surrounding the OnePlus One, which has slowly been fed to us over the past few months. While some of today’s more popular high-end devices such as the HTC One (M8) and Galaxy S5 will likely dominate traditional media outlets, OnePlus One has a real shot to become a hit among the die-hard mobile enthusiasts—those looking for a completely new and unique experience. Carl Pei, part of the OnePlus team, showed users what to expect from a software perspective when the OnePlus finally hits.
As you know, we’ve been working with the Cyanogen team on this product for quite some time, starting from when OnePlus was just an idea, Pei said. Both teams have been deeply involved in both the software and the hardware parts of the experience, and it’s been an amazing ride so far. Although we’re still running pre-production versions of CyanogenMod 11S, I’d still like to share with you some of the things that the Cyanogen team has been working on.
As you can see, the experience largely matches the look of today’s most current build of Android, though the Holo UI can be customized as shown in the screenshot. Users will actually be able to customize the experience quite a bit, with themes, styles, fonts, icons and more.
Over the past few months we’ve heard that the OnePlus One would sport 3GB of RAM with a 2.5GHz processor, and would be available for under $400. The more we learn about the OnePlus One, the more we wish it was already available. OnePlus’s site has a countdown clock that lifts on April 23, so we don’t have too much longer to wait.
