OnePlus One set to give you the best Bang for your Buck on April 23

The last time we talked about the OnePlus One was in March, and while the company is still a few weeks away from officially unveiling the smartphone, they have consistently given us hints. Today they talked about localization, and folks looking to pick up the OnePlus One will be pleased to know they’re going to make things very simple.

The OnePlus website will be setup for multiple languages so when you visit the e-shop, it will look just like it should for your region. The currency and language will be set, and they are even going to show you what carriers are compatible with the OnePlus One.

The company will have warehouses on several different continents as well, so they’ll be handling the VAT and customs for you. Those warehouses will also serve as service centers which should cut down on wait times if an issue arises and you have to send your handset off.

As for the rest of the mysterious device, the guts have been upgraded since we reported on the device in March which is saying something considering it’s not even been released. The 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 has been replaced by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 and the GPU is getting bumped up to 578MHz. You can expect 3GB of RAM and a 13MP shooter to go along with a big 5.5-inch 1080p display.

The folks at OnePlus have consistently told users what they’ve wanted to hear, and that’s resulted in a device that’s going to be under $400 unlocked and have specs on par or better than flagships like the Xperia Z2, Galaxy S5, and HTC One M8. Needless to say, it’s a device we’re really looking forward to seeing, and OnePlus has done a great job building up the hype thus far. We’ll find out the last piece of the puzzle on April 23.
