OnePlus One leaks: prototype rendering, mobo shots


We’ve got one week to go until April 23, when OnePlus makes formally introduces the One as its inaugural smartphone. While the company has just been a doll when it comes to sharing pre-announcement hardware details, we’ve been at a loss for much in the way of visual evidence – sure, there was that one leaked sketch, but that’s been about it. This week we finally get the opportunity to start, with the arrival of a few pictures, both inside and out.

Up there on the left is how the OnePlus One might just look from the rear. Sources describe the rendering as representative of early prototypes, though with the possibility that the design may carry through to the final product. They do note that the large Never Settle text was not present on said prototype, so that may be here more for promotional purposes than to actually reflect what we’ll see on the phone itself.

We also run into some images supposed to depict the OnePlus One’s motherboard. There’s what appears to be a tiny OnePlus One logo etched onto the RF shield. This resolution doesn’t let us get close enough to make out the details on any ICs (what few aren’t under the shielding), but considering what OnePlus has already revealed, it’s not like we had many questions about the phone’s silicon, anyway.

Be sure and check back next week for full details on the phone’s launch.
