We recently told you about the software bugs which have barred shipments of the OnePlus One. The company has reportedly fixed these bugs now with the smartphone expected to ship out as early as tomorrow to customers. It was initially reported that the device has some issues with software and OpenSSL which needed fixing and we’re assuming those issues have now been patched.
Here’s a statement issued by the team regarding the availability of the smartphone – “We did choose to delay the shipment of the first phones in order to make sure the software was secure and provided the best possible user experience. The CyanogenMod team worked very quickly and efficiently and the Open SSL issues have already been fixed. The first OnePlus Ones ship to early users with invites as early as tomorrow.”
The smartphone was announced in late April to a heavily criticized invite only system. Under this, only those with an invite were able to place orders for the smartphone. As a bonus, customers with an invite were able to buy the 32 and 64GB variant of the handset for $299 and $349 respectively. Featuring a 5.5 inch 1080p display and a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset, the OnePlus One is certainly on par with most flagship handsets. The low price tag is just another feather in its cap, although customers will have to pay more for the device post the invitation period.
