The OnePlus One has been hanging in release limbo for far too long, and the positive response which its select few owners are giving is making this wait a very hard one for hopefuls. It seems now that the CyanogenMod-equipped gadget has been delayed yet again owing to software issues, but we have something that should delight interested parties.
Gizchina has done some digging around and has found 5 online stores that are selling the device right now. The OnePlus One is supposed to be made available through exclusive invitations initially, and retailers will later start selling it on their own. But these five stores have jumped the queue and are offering the device prematurely.
The Spanish, Italian, French and German stores of Lenteen are offering it right now at €294.99 (16GB), whereas US-based OppoMart is selling it at $399.99 (16GB). SPEmall is another source you can buy the OnePlus One from. Here, the 16GB model is going for $397.99 and the 64GB version is priced at $447.99. Besides, there are also Flosmall and Topresellerstore.it where you can head to in order to buy the phone.
Here’s a brief look at the specs of the OnePlus One:
– 5.5-inch 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 3
– Android 4.4.2 KitKat (CyanogenMod 11S)
– 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 SOC
– 3GB RAM
– 16GB/64GB storage options
– 13MP rear Exmor IMX 214 camera
– 5MP front sensor
– Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, LTE, GPS connectivity
– 3100mAh Li-Polymer battery
The delay in receiving official invites has stemmed from a software problem, as reported by Android Authority. Newly issued openSSL distributions forced the developers to include them in the final version of the OnePlus One’s software and this has led to the process of re-certification which is taking time.
It is still not sure when this much awaited gadget will hit official availability, but we’re hoping that happens soon. The OnePlus One after all, is a pretty impressive phone with its beastly specs.
