Leaked images show off OnePlus One, StyleSwap covers too
With some previous reports and leaks we had gotten some insight into the sketches and OnePlus One marketing/packaging materials which clearly gave away as to what the front and back of the upcoming handset will look like. But the pictures posted on the internet previously were not clear enough and now fortunately we have a couple of pictures which give more detailed look at press renders of the device. The pictures also show the StyleSwap covers which will let you change the look of the handsets according to your wishes.
There is nothing different in the overall shape and look of the OnePlus One in these photos and everything seems to be in line with the previous leaks. The handset has a minimalistic design approach which falls perfectly in sync with the typical Oppo style and much of the design seems to be inspired by the Oppo Find 5. The covers are more interesting than the phone itself but we first need to be sure whether these images are really legit or not. It is very much likely that they are merely fan renders.

This weekend I wrote a review of the One, a smartphone made by a Chinese manufacturing startup called OnePlus. It's a really nice phone with a giant 5.5-inch screen and powerful specs that rival what you'd find in an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy. What's really cool is OnePlus sells all that for $300, or less than half the cost of an iPhone 5S, which starts at $649. The catch? Quantities are extremely limited, and you need an invitation before y ... Source: Business Insider

The next battleground for smartphone market share will be emerging markets, the poorer countries where most people still use regular phones and are slowly making the transition to smartphones. Lately, there have been a handful of smartphone makers that produce cheap smartphones with really nice build quality.
