First Cyanogen screenshots leak for new OnePlus device

If you haven't heard of OnePlus, I won't blame you. It's a new startup company that was started in December of 2013 by former Oppo Vice President, Peter Lau. With a simple mantra of "Never Settle", Lau is looking to introduce a new handset into the market. OnePlus will focus on creating a handset that combines performance with premium quality and a sleek design. 

Back in January, One Plus announced that it would be partnering with Cyanogen Inc. to produce a custom Android OS for its device. Today, as reported by Engadget, we see the first images of this custom OS. The first image is the shot of a lock screen. The UI is simple with a partial photo revealing itself on the top section, with a large clock in the middle, a message notification below that, with a battery and weather icon on the bottom. The second is a screenshot of the device running Android 4.4.2 on a device simply titled One. While details and information are scarce, OnePlus is expected to make its debut April 23rd with a 5.5" 1080p screen, 13MP rear camera, swappable back covers, and powered by a 3300mAh battery. The OnePlus is to be priced at under $400 off contract.

Dont really like the subject of this afticle because it makes people think that they have pictures of the actual phone and not the interface or anything.

How can Android be a "custom OS"? Android is Android - a big, old-fashioned, slow, malware infested and seriously outdated OS. It's Java FFS. Slapping lipstick on a pig doesn't make it beautiful.

So far all I hear is hype about a "perfect" smartphone. Wrong approach that's likely to bomb when sky-high customer expectations aren't fulfilled.

Yeah, my perfect smartphone would be made of carbon fiber and have a built in laser. I'm pretty sure this one doesn't have either, so it's not perfect!

That lock screen looks like windows phone's.

It does. It happens that I've got the weather and battery pinned at the same location so a very familiar set-up to me.

First thing I noticed to the point I thought I got into the wrong post lol...

Yeah as soon as I saw it I thought "Microsoft will be calling to say STOP USING OUR LOCK SCREEN!" Then I saw the second cap and thought just more Android garbage.
