Rumor: #OnePlus mini Complete Hardware Specs, Release Date and Price leaked


The smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is reportedly planning to launch another smartphone this year, which made its way to the rumour mill a couple of times including few renders. Now, we have received complete information regarding the forthcoming OnePlus handset, which is expecting to become official as the OnePlus mini. Here are the full hardware specifications of this unannounced smartphone.

According to the source, the OnePlus mini will have 5-inch IPS display with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, there will be a 2.5D glass and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 or 4. The leak claims that this will be the same panel used in the recently announced Xiaomi Mi4c. We have to wait and see whether or not the features like Sunlight display will be available from OnePlus. The device is expecting to be powered by MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T) Octa-core chipset with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM clocked @ 933MHz. There will be 32GB eMMC 5.0 storage with the option to expand via microSD-XC slot, this is a strange decision because it is the first OnePlus device to support a microSD slot. The device will also come with a rear mounted Fingerprint sensor.

The Camera Department includes a 13MP Sony IMX258 rear sensor with f/2.0 aperture, which is also capable of recording 4K videos at 30fps. There will be a Dual Tone LED flash too but no information on Laser Auto Focus. The 5MP front shooter will offer wide-angle lens, it will be capable of recording 1080p videos. The source claims that there is no clear indication whether or not OnePlus mini will utilize the Helio X10’s Slow motion video recording @480p feature.

On the connectivity front, the OnePlus mini will offer USB Type-C with Quick Charge 2.0, MT6630 Wireless SoC, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with a-GPS, a 1.2W front-facing speaker but more surprisingly, the device is said to come with NFC onboard to support Android Pay and IR Blaster to control home appliances (which can be controlled by IR sensor). Unfortunately, none of these features are available in high-end OnePlus 2. A 3000 or 3100 mAh battery will power the whole device.

OnePlus mini has few more surprises up its sleeve that it will come with IP67 certification for dust and water protection. The display is going to utilize so-called DRAM (Display RAM) as well as CABC (Content Aware Back-light Control) to save critical power for longer lasting times between the charges.

More Details:

To add more to this, the Helio X10 processor will be paired with relatively underpowered GPU so, to handle the graphically-intensive tasks like games, OnePlus mini will render 3D games at lower 720p resolution then up-scale the image back to 1080p using MediaTek’s MiraVision technology (to reduce the heat usually generate by SoC during game play). MediaTek will release a kernel source code for the first time in its history once the device becomes available in the market to make a smoother way to develop custom ROMs for the device.

The OnePlus mini is expected to be official sometime in November or December. Since it comes from a mid-range segment, the source claims a $250 price tag, which would be perfect for a smartphone with these hardware features. Stay tuned to us for more info on OnePlus mini.

[Review]The Avantek BC-L6 Bluetooth Receiver – £19.99 @AmazonUK

I was sent this to review by Avantek and give my honest opinion.



I found the Avantek BC-L6 Bluetooth Receiver much smaller than expected, and that is a good thing. It as big as half a golf ball, made out of a good quality black plastic. It should easily fit in almost all cars (that have AUX IN of course). I have tried it with Google’s Voice search and it works great. It should work with Siri without any issues.


One little drawback with the product is that it comes without an internal battery. This means you have to keep it plugged into the car for it to work. A bonus is that the charger that comes in the box is a two-port USB one, so it means you can use the extra charging port for another device.


In terms of design, the Avantek BC-L6 Bluetooth is very simple, circular and black, equipped with a permanently attached wire for audio and power connections.The external wire is about 3 feet long and splits for power and audio segregation.


The Avantek Bluetooth receiver is mountable with the support of a magnetic back. Mounting and detaching is very easy and simple.


If the top part of the device is twisted, it helps to turn the volume up or down or you can skip tracks. By pushing the centre button down and holding it, it activates the Google Voice search on your phone (or Siri). It can also be used to stream music via Bluetooth from a compatible device. I have tried it with 2 Android powered phones (OnePlus One and a Xiaomi Redmi 2) and it works great.

The sound quality when on the phone or when listening to music is really great, with no stutter or interruptions. The Avantek BC-L6 is priced at just £19.99 which means that as a whole, this gadget is worth buying.

Conclusion :The AVANTEK Portable Bluetooth Receiver comes with more features than many similar products and a clever means of remotely controlling playback from your phone, but it will involve running wires to a power outlet and an auxiliary input in a car.

[ROM] OnePlus ONE Gets #MIUI6 Port!

I read on the Chinese OnePlus forums this morning that somebody ported MIUI 6 on the OnePlus. Downloaded and tried it myself.

There are a few major bugs, like :

WiFi not working
Sounds not working (Sound only works through headphones)
Camera is broken too.

Update 10.02

A few smaller bugs:
Call volume is quite low
I had a few restarts
Phone seems to over-heat while syncing

But I have to admit MIUI 6 looks and works great on the OnePlus. Very, very fluid.

You’ll have to be on a ColorOS modem,  so you don’t  get to brick your phone.

[NEWS] Meet the #OnePlus ROM: OxygenOS


As many of you know, OnePlus will be launching their own ROM in the near future. They’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what this ROM means to us and our fans. OnePlus realized that, like everything they do, their true goal is to make the product that everybody would want to use—to make great technology more accessible for everyone. With their own ROM, that means software that is open, customizable, and free of bloat and unnecessary features.

When OnePlus designed the One, they went back to the drawing board, creating a smartphone that offers a bold, powerful, straight-forward experience.

And, that’s exactly what they plan to do with their ROM.

After considering all of the amazing suggestions you guys gave, OnePlus found the name that truly inspired them:

OxygenOS (HydrogenOS for the Chinese OPO)


As an element, Oxygen is the epitome of simplicity, yet it’s also extraordinarily powerful.

Oxygen is all around us. It’s part of us and everything we do. It creates the water that carves out valleys and moves mountains. By itself, it’s simple and pure—a fundamental building block. But, as a part of something greater, it can do amazing things. Just like us.

Together, we will do big things.

Stay tuned; more information is coming on February 12th.

And, as always, Never Settle.



[NEWS] #OnePlus ROM could be called OneOS

As you probably already knew OnePlus asked their fans to help them find a new name for their own in-house built OS.

Here at OnePlus, we care deeply about giving our fans the best possible user experience, and we believe that an emphasis on openness and customization is a big, big part of that. That’s why we officially support rooting and flashing custom ROMs on the OnePlus One without affecting your warranty. It’s also why we test and release builds of alternative ROMs for use on the OnePlus One on our forums.

We know that the best choice for you is the one that you make for yourself, and that idea is at the core of everything we do. From the beginning, we’ve asked our fans to “Never Settle,” and we stand by that ideology. Now, it’s time to take it to the next level.

As you may have heard, we are developing our own custom ROM in-house — just one more option for those who refuse to compromise. We promise that it will be close to stock, bloat-free, and highly customizable; we wouldn’t ask you to settle for anything less. What you may not know, though, is that our first community build will be released soon. Much sooner than you likely expected.

After the votes were entered, 10 finalists were chosen:

Opus — ahighfield — Hong Kong — 12/17/2014 17:12:27

Nomad OS — greatbubba — Sweden — 12/17/2014 17:19:32

CosmOS — Tuqano — Italy — 12/17/2014 19:13:09

Muse — redm — USA — 12/18/2014 9:17:06

Karma — coldcatt — Canada — 12/18/2014 10:17:19

OnePlus ROM — TakeMyMoney — Netherlands — 12/17/2014 16:31:23

StratOS — Deidara — Mexico — 12/18/2014 3:49:52

Carbon — Thijs — Belgium — 12/17/2014 18:08:32

ElementOS — Talon918 — India — 12/17/2014 23:38:11

DaVinci — martina.seno — Italy — 12/17/2014 21:04:23

Now here comes the really BIG news, according to the official Chinese forum, OnePlus VP, Liu Zuohu has said that choosing one of the above names would prove pretty difficult, because of trademark and copyright issues.

Liu Zuohu then says: “So in the end we found OneOS is the “best” name, but many people would argue is the most unoriginal name.” Bing Translation

What do you think?!? Is the name OneOS too boring or do you think it is just perfect, because it is so simple?!?

[NEWS] Most Popular Android Phone of 2014: #OnePlusOne

There are so many great Android phones on the market right now that no list could contain them all, but when asked for your picks, you, the public, gave them a great selection. They looked at the five best Android phones of the year based on those picks, and after over 38,000 votes, it’s time to highlight your favorite.

The Cyanogen-powered, difficult-to-obtain OnePlus One took the top spot by a fair margin, bringing in close to 49% of the overall vote and taking first place. The team behind it still operates on invites, but they’ve recently opened the door to a batch pre-order system that will get you in line to get one of the affordable, high-end phones if you want one.

Second place went to the slightly old but arguably another killer bang for your buck, the Nexus 5 by LG. Many of you said it was just the right size, just the right price, and since it’s a Nexus, if you have one you already have Lollipop — and Lollipop sings on an Nexus 5. It brought in close to 16% of the overall vote. In third with just under 15% of the votes cast was the successor to last year’s top pick, the HTC One M8. Almost every comment about it praised its build quality, all-metal design, and improved features over the original HTC One. Fourth place went to the Moto X, a great all-around phone that brings powerful features to the table without costing you an arm and a leg to get them. It picked up close to 11% of the vote. Bringing up the rear in fifth was the Sony Xperia Z3, Sony’s latest flagship, with its dustproof and waterproof chassis and high-quality camera. It earned just over 10% of the overall vote.

For more on each of these and the honorable mentions not listed here, make sure to head back to the full Hive Five feature to read more.

Do you agree?!? Is the OnePlus really The Best Phone of 2014 ?!?


Head over to the English MIUI forum to cast your vote if you agree or disagree with this.

[ROM] OnePlus #OneRomAWeek – SlimSaber 4.8

SlimKat Bacon SaberMod 4.8 Unofficial builds

Making SlimKat faster and smoother

SlimSaber: SaberMod toolchain 4.8.4
SlimKernel: SaberMod toolchain 4.9.3

I’m not responsible for any damages on your device.

Some of you perhaps already know me from SlimSaber main thread i9100. My focus is to compile roms with custom toolchain SaberMod for more performance and smoothness.
I choose SlimRoms because it is a lightweight and not bloated rom, but it still has rich features.
The rom and the kernel are tested by me first before I make it available online. I could have overseen something during testing, please be understand.
In summary, it is still SlimKat that is compiled with SaberMod toolchain. You can consider this build is nightly and the build from the official thread is stable and weekly.

What makes different from the official SlimKat

  • Compiled with a custom toolchain Sabermod for more performance and better battery life
  • Compiled with the GCC optimization level -O3
  • Compiled with strict-aliasing compiler optimization
  • Added patches to fix GCC strict-aliasing violation rules
  • Added ARMv7 optimized string handling routines for more smoothness and more memory optimization
  • Disabled SQLite fsync to increase I/O performance
  • Cherry-picked some AOSP bug and memory leak fixes
  • Cherry-picked some KitKat bug and memory leak fixes

Installation instructions
Coming from stock or another ROM:

  • Follow the guide how to unlock bootloader and install custom recovery from here
  • Full wipe: system, data, cache, dalvik cache.
  • Flash the SlimSaber build.
  • Flash gapps from here.

Coming from previous SlimSaber build:

  • Wipe cache and dalvik cache.
  • Flash the SlimSaber build.
  • No need to re-flash gapps. Gapps will be restored back automatically by backup tool during flashing.

Known Issues

  • Lens blur photos will crash while processing. This is caused by using a toolchain version number greater than 4.7.

Latest release
Latest 4.4.4: 20141121

[NEWS] When #OnePlus One met the Moto 360 ;)

OnePlus , with their “Never Settle” approach towards mobile phones has only been around for less than a year, but quickly gathered a massive group of fans and loyal customers. Its first flagship product, the OnePlus ONE was a real success even if it didn’t prove to be the smartphone killer of 2014, it certainly was one of the best. 

Everybody knows who Motorola is. Motorola’s wireless telephone handset division was a pioneer in cellular telephones. When it comes to wearables, fashion trumps function. That’s the mantra Motorola went by when it designed and developed the Moto 360, and judging by the enthusiastic response the watch received when it was unveiled earlier this year, plenty of people agree. The Moto 360 is undoubtedly the best-looking of the three inaugural Android Wear watches (the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live are the other two), with its premium leather strap, chamfered glass and circular design.  

Now….  lets see when the OnePlus One met the MOTO 360 …..
