OnePlus, the company that’ll make the first pure CyanogenMod phone later this year, has shed more details about the OnePlus One, as Pete Lau and Steve Kondik were apparently in Beijing earlier today where they explained what users can expect from the upcoming smartphone.

The handset will launch in the second quarter of the year, although the release date was not mentioned by either exec. However, they apparently did say the phone will sport impressive design as well as some unique CyanogenMod features. Here’s what they had to say, according to Phone Arena:

Appearance wise, we’re confident our phone is more attractive than just about any phone on the market with the exception of maybe iPhone.

The one plus flagship device will be a departure from the familiar CyanogenMod. There will be new, specially customized features and new exciting elements to the CyanogenMod experience. We’re excited to debut what we’ve been working on with the first OnePlus phone and look forward to the future of this collaboration.

However, the two execs have not shared any specific details about the OnePlus One phone. Images showing the smartphone aren’t available at this time either, although we’re certainly interested to see what OnePlus and Cyanogen Inc. will have to offer this year.
