OnePlus, the company started by former executives of Chinese electronics maker Oppo, is prepping to launch its first Smartphone later this year. The Smartphone likely to be called as the OnePlus One, will run on the popular CyanogenMod Android ROM based on Android 4.4 KitKat.

It packs the latest 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor that’s inside the Samsung Galaxy S5 and also rumored to be in the all new HTC One 2014 edition. The RAM capacity will be 3GB, while the internal storage comes in 2 variants - 16GB and 64GB.
Round the back there's a 6 piece, 13MP Sony Exmor snapper with f/2.0 aperture and 4K video recording capability. The device may also feature a front-facing camera with 2MP or 5MP resolution.
