Note: From Wikipedia above, Malaysia uses Band 3 and Band 7.


########## AVAILABILITY & PRICING ##########

Unfortunately, stocks is going to be an issue. So, no official availability for Malaysia yet.


QUOTE
Sales will start in May 2014.

However, for the first few months, sales will be by invitation only and limited to 16 launch countries and regions. Currently, the launch countries are:
Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and the United States.

China too.

As for the invite system, no details yet like how many units per invite, etc... But not that sales in China is NOT using invite system. It should be the normal/ regular way of selling phones. Only thing -- China version does not come with CynogenMod 11s.


The OnePlus One will cost:

Note: Hong Kong seems to be the cheapest so far.

For USA... 16GB will cost...

The 64GB... See spoiler. The price may make one go crazy... Yes, it pwns even Nexus 5.

How can it be so cheap? One possible explanation can be found here:
http://www.androidheadlines.com/2014/04/he...nsumer-low.html

Anyway, OnePlus did say later, they will reveal the cost breakdown. It's also interesting to note that OnePlus did mention before that their financial backer (BBK) is allowing them to have no profit for the first two years of operations. So, OnePlus says the phone is being sold without profit. They will make some money from accesosries like the Swap Style cases.


QUOTE
How do I get an invite?
The main method of getting invites will be through others. In the beginning, when not a lot of other people have the device, you'll be able to get invites through contest and raffles. We have planned ways so our early fans, as well as people who weren't here from the beginning will be able to obtain invites.

When do the next batch of invites roll out?
The first real batch of invites roll out late May, and will be of the 64GB Sandstone Black version. Any invites that you might have been promised before this, will be sent during this time.

How long are invites valid for?
For invites that you receive, they are typically valid for 24 hours. If they expire, they get returned to sender so someone else can get a chance to buy it. Alternatively, you can ask for the sender to resend it to you. For invites that you can give away, they are usually valid for longer, usually 1-2 weeks.

How many invites can I give away?
This varies. In the beginning, the quantities will be smaller, but increased as time goes by. You will frequently receive new invites to give away as production ramps up.

When do I receive invites to give away?
You do not automatically receive invites when you purchase a phone. We will need to manually roll them out according to our operations situation.​



########## STYLE SWAP COVERS ##########

user posted image

QUOTE
It would be a shame to hide the One’s beautiful design under a bulky case just to avoid wear and tear. We've introduced our unique range of StyleSwap exchangeable back covers, so you can not only add a bit of a personality to your OnePlus One, but also easily swap out a dinged case without needing to replace the whole device. StyleSwap covers come in a range of materials and textures, including kevlar, bamboo and denim on top of standard silk and sandstone. Now you can customize your phone for the look and feel you prefer, and change it up whenever you'd like.

########## FROM WEBSITES ##########

QUOTE
from: http://bgr.com/2014/03/05/oneplus-one-spec...ocessor-memory/

The phone will come with CyanogenMod support for two years, a Cyanogen Inc. team member said on the OnePlus forums, and will pack Google Apps. Furthermore, buyers will have the option of doing anything to the phone when it comes to rooting, unrooting, installing stock Android or other custom ROMs without voiding the warranty. However, disassembling and/or “frying your CPU due to over-clocking will void your warranty” David said on Reddit.


QUOTE
from: http://bgr.com/2014/03/19/oneplus-one-desi...yleswap-covers/

“Engineers and designers spend a lot of time creating the specific look for a phone, but then people tend to cover it up with a case. Don’t you think that it’s a pity to cover up a beautiful device?” OnePlus CEO Pete Lau wrote. “We believe that the appeal and beauty of a device should speak for itself. Adding size and bulk to a phone for protection is a thing of the past.”

He further added that the designs “are durable and attractive, but still durable and strong.” Furthermore, some the StyleSwap covers will be made of their own respective materials, aside from the Silk and Sandstone versions. The company has also kicked off a contest on its Facebook page, with one lucky winner to be flown to Hong Kong to try out the back of the handset.

In the recent weeks, OnePlus revealed the phone will not have a user-replaceable battery, while a design sketch of the phone exclusively obtained by BGR revealed the One will have a unibody design.

It’s not clear how the whole StyleSwap customization process is done, and whether the phone will come in some default color versions, which could then be customized by special case purchases. Also, even though the StyleSwap Covers are replaceable, it’s not clear whether the phone will offer users access to a microSD slot for expandable memory.


QUOTE
from: http://phandroid.com/2014/03/25/oneplus-one-release-date-2/

That’s just a bit over a month from now, but we’ve waited this long for all the official details, and I’m sure we can hold out just a bit longer. What we already know about the OnePlus One has us excited. Here are the early specs we’re told to look forward to:
* Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
* 3,100mAh battery with QuickCharge (charges to 75% in 30 minutes)
* 5.5-inch 1080p HD display
* 13 megapixel f/2.0 Sony EXMOR camera with 4K video recording
* Custom version of CyanogenMod with touchless controls

All of this is supposed to be coming to us for under $400, though an exact price point has yet to be formally determined. The OnePlus One is looking to arrive in Q2 2014, so prepare those wallets if this is shaping up to be a device you can see yourself walking around with.


QUOTE
from: http://www.gsmarena.com/oneplus_one_detail...4-news-7974.php

What's interesting is that there won't be a 32GB version, as the One will be offered in 16GB and 64GB flavors. The larger storage option will come at a price close to what other companies ask for 32GB models, OnePlus notes. Rumored to be made out of metal, the One will also sport a notification LED.

The battery specs haven't been revealed just yet, but it did become clear the phone will last more than a day on a single charge. There's also a new and interesting technology, which it'll be utilizing, too.

The OnePlus One will be the only phone the company makes this year. It's also planning to double its size from the 150-employee company it is now. Those are very bold plans and we'll see how things pan out for the optimistic phonemaker.

The upcoming OnePlus One droid has made yet another appearance before its official announcement, paying the Antutu benchmark a visit. The most prominent member of the Cyanogen Mod team, the guys behind the handset’s ROM, shared a screenshots with its performance in the popular benchmark.

Even though the name of the device wasn’t explicitly confirmed, that fact the post was reshared by the official OnePlus account tells you everything there is to know here.

So now that we know what the device is, let’s focus on the score. 36,715 points is an excellent achievement, topping the Galaxy Note 3’s result even though the two handset share the same chipset – Snapdragon 800.

Obviously the CM ROM is somewhat lighter than TouchWiz and leaves some extra processing power at the user’s disposal.

As previously confirmed, the OnePlus One will go on sale in its first 10 markets in Q2 (which starts in less than a month). The pricing is confirmed to be below $400, but that’s probably before local taxes are applied.

note: its official that processor will now be Snapdragon 801 instead of Snapdragon 800.

QUOTE
from: http://liliputing.com/2014/03/oneplus-one-...in-q2-2014.html

The OnePlus One will be available in 10 countries at launch, including the United States. It’s expected to be sold directly to consumers for under $500. There are currently no plans to partner with wireless carriers, but the phone will be a GSM device that supports 4G LTE on AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks. It won’t support Verizon or Sprint, and there are currently no plans for a dual-SIM model.


QUOTE

We would like to thank all our suppliers. Without their support over the past few months, the OnePlus One wouldn't be possible.

they are still teasing everyone... releasing details very slowly. but from what they have been teasing so far, including one that said something along the lines of OnePlus One being inside Xperia Z1 -- implying they can get 5.5 on that physical size... there's not going to be a lot of room for a physical/ capacitive button.

i guess they are still very low key. sites reporting this phone is mainly from Android sites...

their leaks... so far, they have been teasing with little updates every now and then on their forum. i've added their 'leaks' in the 2nd post.

@evleaks twitter has only got 1-2 mention of this phone so far... so, really not much info at this time. especially how it looks...

Phone in a Box
http://forums.oneplus.net/threads/contest-...e-in-a-box.477/

The time has come for our craziest contest so far! Phone in a Box is kicking off.

We are so extremely confident about the build quality and materials of our phone that we just couldn’t wait to give one of our most eager fans a sneak peek.

In just a few short days, someone will be getting ready to fly out to Hong Kong to be the very first to experience the feel of the back of the OnePlus One!

To enter, each user will need to submit a short video to Instagram (now also on YouTube!) with the hashtag #phoneinabox. All that you have to do is tell us how you feel towards OnePlus. OnePlus has garnered quite some attention in the tech community as of late, and we want to hear your most honest thoughts. Bring it on!

How to Participate (and basic info):
* Post one short video to Instagram or YouTube (max. 15 seconds) telling us your feelings about OnePlus Tech
-- For Instagram: The video must include the @oneplustech tag and #phoneinabox hashtag
-- For YouTube: title should include OnePlus' Phone In A Box Contest: in the title and the hashtag #phoneinabox in the description of the video (we will make a playlist with all of them!)
* The contest will run from 9AM EST (2PM GMT+1) time on March 19th until 9AM EST (2PM GMT+1) on March 28th

The winner will be chosen by the OnePlus staff based on originality (so, please, try to be creative).

Grand Prize:
* Be the first in the world to touch the hottest phone of 2014 and tell everyone about it
* Free trip to Hong Kong including flight and accommodation
* Meet the amazing team of awesome people that will disrupt the tech industry
* Be the star of our next YouTube video
* The winner of the big prize MUST have a valid passport and over 18

Depending on where you are, you may be required to have a visa to visit Hong Kong. Please make sure to check in advance to ensure that you are able to accept if you win.

We'll fly the winner out to Hong Kong and provide two nights accommodation, all to be the first person to touch the back of the OnePlus One! We know that's quite a long way for some of you, so we're happy to book flights for the dates of your choice, allowing you to stay a little longer or do some traveling around Asia. We just ask that you be able to arrive between the 4th and 11th of April.

Participation Prize (everyone will get this!):
What happens if you don't have a valid passport or you can't travel on those dates?

You can still participate! Just make sure to add on your video description (both, for YouTube or Instagram) #ImInForTheGoodies hashtag and you'll receive one of our awesome swag-bundle, with one fantastic NeverSettle Fruit of the Loom cotton t-shirt, one travel mug and a pack of stickers!

We will announce the grand winner on Monday, March 31st at 9AM EST.

New kid on the block, trying to sit at the adult table. Better wait for others to test it first. Definitely not with KitKat as the software workload is heavy. Software update and service center will take time to mature. The price will be lower for taking risks with a new player.
