OnePlus One Launch Phone That Includes a 4K DCI Video Recorder
OnePlus are a new phone manufacturer that has recently released the OnePlus One phone. They announced the new OnePlus One smart phone in April. That phone is out now, and includes a 4K video recorder.
Cameras with 4K video recorders are not exactly something new. The Sony Xperia, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 and the LG G3 all have 4K recorders. However, what sets the OnePlus One apart is that it shoots video at DCI 4K. The DCI 4K recording resolution is 4096 × 2160, which is a slightly higher resolution than more standard UHD recording formats found with other phones.
The OnePlus One phone boasts a 13 MP Sony Exmore IMX214 camera that records 4K video in stereo slow-motion. With that camera you can record video at 120 fps. The photo camera has six lenses for more precise photography, a f/2.0 aperture and duel-LED.
This phone has a 5.5 inch touchscreen display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. This gives it a crisp display for playing back recorded videos. Its IPS display is more shatterproof than OGS alternatives.
OnePlus One includes the Android 4.4.2 KitKat platform. Note that is not entirely the same as other Android platforms as it runs a CyanogenMod interface. You can install CyanogenMod themes with customized icons, wallpapers, system fonts and so on. Alternatively, you can stick with the default vanilla Android theme.
For storage the OnePlus One has 16 or 64 GB of internal flash memory. However, the phone does not have any expandable storage. It also has 3GB of LP-DDR3 RAM for flawless multitasking.
The OnePlus One is somewhat larger than alternative phones. The phone’s height is about 153mm and the width is 76mm. This phone also comes in silk white or sandstone black models.
One Plus One is, sort of, out now. OnePlus have made the phone available on an invitation bases. That means you need to get an invite by entering contests on the OnePlus forum. Alternatively, you can ask somebody with a OnePlus One phone for an invite. Once you have ordered a OnePlus One, you then receive invites to give out.
Nevertheless, the phone is still out now. It is retailing at $299 for the 16GB version and $349 for the 64GB model. Its DCI 4K video camera is certainly a cut above what is included with other phones. Below is a list of the OnePlus One’s specifications.
