Chinese OEM OnePlus has kept everyone in the loop regarding the development of its One smartphone. And while everything looks to be going smoothly for the phone’s launch on April 23, word is out that the device is ‘not quite ready to debut.’ The source of this news is EvLeaks who has also shared an image of different components belonging to the handset in question.
Apart from this, EvLeaks hasn’t mentioned any reason behind the possible delay and there’s no update about the same from OnePlus as well. The company recently started announcing the list of countries where the One smartphone will be available. Price details were also provided, but with no mention of a release date. The confirmed countries so far include Canada, Finland, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan, the US and the UK amongst others.

The device will retail for under $400 and £290 in the US and UK, respectively. OnePlus has adopted quite an aggressive pricing strategy.

Here are the specs in detail:
– Android 4.4 KitKat (CyanogenMod)

– 2.5GHz Snapdragon MSM8974AC SOC
– 3GB RAM
– 16GB/64GB storage
