We might just be counting down the hours before OnePlus‘ first smartphone comes out, but we have some interesting last minute leaks. This time we might be getting a glimpse of what the OnePlus One might look like, though this isn’t a total assurance that the final product will end up exactly like this.
A couple of design sketches of the upcoming smartphone has just been spotted¸ indicating a few very interesting features. On the rear we see a vertical layout of the camera with the flash and the OnePlus logo underneath. The power button is located in the middle of the side edge, while speaker grilss seem to be located at the bottom edges, not at the front nor the back. But perhaps most interesting for those who have been following OnePlus news is the screen. As per the last official teaser, the smartphone is supposed to have a 5.5-inch Full HD screen in a 5-inch body. Though the sketches don’t exactly make it clear, it might be possible that the company has almost all but removed bezels in order to make that possible.
From AnTuTu, we’re getting a glimpse of the specs of the OnePlus One, some of which we already know, and some we’re just finding out now. We already know about the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, though it might not be too late to have a 801 there, and the 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display. Now, however, we’re being told that RAM will be capped at 2 GB only, while rear and front-facing cameras are set to 13 and 5 megapixels respectively. AnTuTu gives the OnePlus One a score of 35222, which isn’t that far off from most smartphones with those same specs.
Of course, none of these are set in stone, especially in the case of the leaked sketches. Final products usually end up quite different from how they were initially conceived, due to physical, technological, financial, and time constraints. This leaves the OnePlus One with an aura of mystery that we are looking forward to having dispelled when it is finally unveiled this Monday.
