OnePlus strikes first carrier deal in Malaysia

The OnePlus One is probably the best Android phone you couldn’t — until yesterday — readily get your hands on. As the company readies their incoming 'OnePlus Two' handset, OnePlus let down their ‘by invitation only’ guard and are now letting the public at-large grab a One. As they round the corner from gutsy startup toward respectable OEM, they’ve announced a carrier partnership that will again test their mettle. In Malaysia, a partnership with telco Maxis will bring OnePlus to carrier stores for the first time ever.

OnePlus launches DR-1 drone on April Fools Day

OnePlus launches DR-1 drone on April Fools Day

While it was probably a fun tradition in the past, and might still be for a few, April Fools Day has become a mixed bag, especially when it comes to the Internet and news. Company's in the West, or at least those who are mindful of their Western and international audiences, have come to learn to refrain from making serious announcements on the day when people are less likely to take things seriously. And yet, once again defying convention, OnePlus is launching its new product right on April 1, its not so secret DR-1 drone.

OnePlus AMAA tidbits: OnePlus Two, OxygenOS, and drones

OnePlus AMAA tidbits: OnePlus Two, OxygenOS, and drones

Despite some setbacks, controversies, and complaints about availability, the OnePlus One has become a high profile device which admittedly deserves its renown. The "flagship killer" from a little known startup gave credence to that moniker, delivering (somewhat) high-end hardware with an affordable price tag, something only Xiaomi was famous for. Of course, a one hit wonder won't be able to keep OnePlus afloat, and the company does have ambitious plans up ahead. At a Reddit Ask Me (Almost) Anything, AMAA for short, round, co-founder Carl Pei and One Plus' David S. revealed some interesting details, including its next "game changer" device.

OnePlus One can run Salifish OS, somewhat

The OnePlus One has been a remarkable smartphone, availability and issues in India notwithstanding. It has stayed true to its name of a being a flagship killer, at least for 2014's batch. But with 2015's roster already on their way, the smartphone might be showing its age. It doesn't mean, however, that it will no longer be useful. Somewhat like a Nexus, the OnePlus One could be taken to new and quite different heights, as this recent hack proves, showing the smartphone running Sailfish OS instead.

3D printed VR headset for OnePlus One has adjustable lenses

With the popularization and commercialization of 3D printing, you can almost make anything these days. With some patience and time, of course. 3D printers have been used to solve a wide range of problems, and non-problems, like replacement limbs for dogs or even chocolate. It was that same problem-solving thinking that lead Rene Meeh to face one his problems head on, almost literally. Meeh was able to make the first VR headset specifically designed for the OnePlus One smartphone. But it's not just your regular VR headset either.

CyanogenMod jabs at OnePlus OS closed-source OS

The official OxygenOS for OnePlus "won't be a community build, it will be a real OS." So says OnePlus ROM team member Helen, an official member of said team. In return, the Android community has been none too kind to the creators of said operating system and said hardware. Cyanogenmod's own Steve Kondik suggested the following: "you can love CM or you can hate us, but we have no plans of taking our toys and going home." This is OnePlus after Cyanogenmod - and it's none too pretty.

OnePlus after Cyanogen — Oxygen, and lots of Paranoid Android

OnePlus after Cyanogen — Oxygen, and lots of Paranoid Android

In the wake of their odd breakup (or separation, or maybe they’re taking a break, who really knows) with Cyanogen, OnePlus announced they’d come to market with their own operating system. Quickly dubbed Oxygen OS, we were promised more details at a later date. Today is the day for more details, so what are we getting? A look at Oxygen OS’ logo, and a brief introduction to the team building it. If you were wondering how OnePlus was going to answer Cyanogen’s work on their hardware, the answer is Paranoid Android.
