OnePlus One will cost under £290 / €350 in UK and Europe, but what do you expect for that sort of cash?

It's just seven days until OnePlus launches its first Android flagship, but that hasn't stopped the company drip-feeding news about the device. Surprisingly, the outfit promises that the unit will cost under £290 in the UK, €350 in Europe and $3,000 HKD in Hong Kong -- which we're taking to mean £289, €349 and $2,999, respectively. By way of comparison, that's £10 less than you'd pay for a Nexus 5 and £20 more than you'd need for a Lumia 1320. Now, given that the handset is shipping with a Snapdragon 801, 5.5-inch 1080p display and a 3,100mAh battery, what is OnePlus likely to scrimp on in order to get it down to that price?

just like a nexus... they will skimp on everything outside of the screen and soc. simple as that. they already skimped on using a two year old camera.
fyi. it really sucks that you guys cant get enough traction on your forums. i would much rather post my comments on the main site.... just as i have for the last four years.

As in skimping on support for BAND 20 LTE (800MHz) - as in it simply wont work on O2 - 4G in the UK and questionable on Vodafone UK as well

Cant believe they are launcing a 'smartphone' with NO Band 20 LTE support

-The Nexus 5 / Lumia 1320 in the UK Both support Band 20

According to this post, they are aiming to do a EU version if they're successful with the initial launch.

"aiming to do a EU VERSION"" this launch model (with No Band 20 support) is launching in 16 countries - of which at least 10 are in the EU - this is a phone for the EU, with a failed LTE bands profile for the EU market
