OnePlus One is already a great device with top-of-the-line specs in an affordable package. The new team behind the company's homegrown OxygenOS revealed that the 2015 successor, OnePlus Two, will be greater in terms of specs and features without shooting the price up the roof.
The news echoes the words of Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder, who announced during CES 2015 that the upcoming flagship will be sold at a discounted price until stocks last.
The new details on the release of OnePlus Two came from Reddit during an AMAA (Ask Me Almost Anything) session held by the OxygenOS team. There were a lot of questions about the new ROM, which was developed to support its OnePlus devices after some legal disputes with Cyanogen. Quite interestingly, the team narrowed down the release timeline for the OnePlus Two, which until now remained inconclusive.
The ROM team had some witty answers to some questions from curious Redditors. At one point, a user asked if the upcoming flagship will run Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, which is currently the latest SoC in the market.
"Nice try," replied Pei, the 25-year-old co-founder of OnePlus, on Reddit.
From the discussions on Reddit, one thing is clear that the OnePlus Two will be released by Q2 or Q3 this year. The expected release of the device is around June but little is known about the specs it will carry.
Based on the rumours so far, Gizchina.com reported that the upcoming flagship will indeed run Snapdragon 810 processor and have a 4GB RAM, 3,300mAh battery with a 2K display of the same screen size.
The OnePlus Two arrival is around the same time as the release of stable OxygenOS and the ROM team confirmed that the handset will run OxygenOS out of the box.
