I had to check my calendar to make sure it wasn’t April Fools day anymore. We’ve been drooling at the opportunity to get a look at the OnePlus One, and we almost thought we had it… until we didn’t. The jokesters and teasers over at OnePlus and CyanogenMod have posted an unboxing video on YouTube.

Cleverly enough, this was technically an unboxing, except they didn’t dare show the phone itself. We get a nice look at the slick red and white packaging, as well as some required reading and literature that comes with the device. The device itself? Why, of course they weren’t going to show it! That’d ruin all the fun that’s going to be had on April 23rd, now wouldn’t it?

Thankfully we already know a ton about the device, which is going to be a device that costs less than $400 (less than 350 Euro in Europe) with a 13 megapixel camera, Snapdragon 801 processor, 5.5-inch 1080p display and more. On the software side is a custom fork of CyanogenMod with a unique lock screen and always-listening voice commands.

Sure, the majority of the world may be getting all googley-eyed over HTC and Samsung’s latest wares, but OnePlus is promising to bring a device that deserves just as much attention. Be sure to circle back when the goods are given to us later this month.
