    I am very intrigued, if it is priced as well as I have heard then I'm totally in for this one. I saw some supposed sample shots leak from the camera earlier today and they looked damn impressive.

    Very interested in it as well as I liked Oppo's designs esp with their Find 7.

    That "One" moniker seems very popular these days. HTC One series phones, Xbox One, OnePlus One, etc. Ny fav name for a phone is still Nexus One. And still one of my favs after all these years. It started off a third stringer, then backup, then daily driver, and now back up to the One (M7). Rock solid device even if it only sold like 135k units.

    Very interesting, following on Facebook, but it looks like Ireland isn't one of the countries going to be available unfortunately.

    The excessive screen size is an instant turn off for me. This in general seems like a "look at all the specs we crammed into this one" phone.

    Yep I'm on the bandwagon but I think it'll disappoint. So far the camera shots taken with the One plus one out in the wild seem to be pretty good.

    I have been watching them with interest.....It seems like a great phone on the specs alone. But for some reason they have not released any actual pictures of the phone. But you gotta admit.....for a first phone it sure seems to be a good start! :)

    The update support is the only thing I'm afraid of.

    Maybe I'll buy it.

    Since it's cyanogenmod direct, updates support should be guaranteed.

    I want them to just release it and show us. I have small hands so I really want a screen to body ratio like the G2. If it has that I'm in for one. It checks all the other boxes.

    True... Have to wait till the 24th for that.

    I have a feeling Ireland isn't on the list, so unless their UK portal allows us to buy it we might be fecked :(

    Good thing for me is I'm in the US. As an aside if anyone is interested in this phone and is in an area they don't sell to I'm fine playing middle man.

    Although the screen size is 5.5inch, it's going to be smaller than the xperia z1. I'm very excited for this phone and I'm almost certain this will be my next phone. I won't give my money to Samsung because I feel they are releasing the same old designs. With the HTC one, I can't look past the sleep button location and the oversized bezels.

    I have been watching this phone with interest. It seems odd that they have not released any pictures of what the phone looks like. There is a lot of churn on their website.....We will find out on the 24th.......

    Looking forward to see what they deliver after what seems like a spec-fest and ton of promises.

    Being in China I'm hoping to get a hands-on relatively quickly. However, asking at lots of the local stores, they don't seem to know about it at all. OnePlus face a big battle with outlets as there's so many single-brand stores from Oppo, Meizu, Xiaomi, etc, all over the cities here - sometimes two or three on the same small street.

    Hopefully they'll be selling via China Unicom and/or China Mobile to raise awareness otherwise unless there's a monster unveiling of OnePlus stores in the next week or two. Not a single advert seen either which is markedly different from Oppo who have billboards and other posters for the Find 7 all over the place.

    The leaked design looks very good.

    If it turns out true and it turns out to have a good battery life then this will be my next phone.

    That price is amazing. Hope it has good performance and battery life.

    Yeah it is very tantalizing. I'm hoping for thin bezels on the front side and preferably front facing speakers. This could really be a home run if they do it properly.

    Same here. If it was 5" I would consider it, but at 5.5" that is just too big for my liking no matter what the other specs are.

    The z1 is a big phone
