OnePlus One to feature a 5.5 inch 1080p display with ‘Touch on Lens’ technology

OnePlus One

The OnePlus One smartphone is expected to feature a bevy of top end hardware and we have more information to add to that list – the display. The company has now revealed that the smartphone will feature a 5.5 inch 1080p resolution display with something known as the ‘Touch On Lens’ technology. This will reportedly bridge the gap between the display and the touch sensor and provide 300% more durability compared to traditional displays.

This panel will be apparently made by Japan Display Inc, which consists of Hitachi, Sharp and Sony. The manufacturer claims that using QHD displays on smartphones is overkill and anything beyond 400 ppi is sufficient for any user out there.

Further, the company posted a teaser image with the smartphone hiding beneath the Sony Xperia Z1, with barely anything visible. This indicates that the smartphone will feature narrow bezels, which means that despite having a bigger screen than the Xperia Z1 (5.0 inches), it will almost fit into the same metal frame. This will give users more display real estate to play with and also increase efficiency.

From what we know so far, the OnePlus One will also feature a quad core Snapdragon 800 SoC, a 3,100 mAh battery and come with a deeply customized version of Android with help from the CyanogenMod team. The pricing of the smartphone is reportedly going to be under $400 during launch.

  1. Wow! Probably the first device to have the thinnest bezels, probably bezel-less sides? This is an interesting device for sure. Let’s see.

  2. Does this mean that the phone will stay charged longer? I am pretty excited to hear about this. It sounds like resolution display is going to be killer. I hope it is released here in the states.

  3. Looks pretty slick. Any idea when we’ll see the device launch, and will it be available in the U.S.?
