We haven't heard much in the way of news regarding the OnePlus One since CyanogenMod and OnePlus first announced their collaboration in early January. Since then the team has shared its intent to release the phone internationally in the second quarter of this year, a plan that sounded ambitious then and continues to do so now. But early this morning OnePlus's Pete Lau took to Google+ with a message about the handset's eventual price. Anxious consumers can look for the OnePlus One to cost less than $500 unlocked and off-contract when it eventually debuts.

Still, I would refrain from getting too excited until more concrete details about the phone and its software come out in a more official capacity. Until then, we'll just have to settle for less.

    As it should if I've never heard of the company before and they can't point to a compelling hardware differentiator. Otherwise there really isn't a good reason why I'd buy one over any of the other flagships out there, or last year's flagship which is already under $500.

    $499.99 is under $500 and I have seen it used before so we'll see...

      Came here to say this also. I'm really excited for this phone. I was hoping it to be under 400 actually. Guess it's not gonna happen. :( Maybe 450 is still a good price depening on the specs
