OnePlus One users may be busy looking for Android Lollipop based CM12S and Oxygen OS updates but the company is not revealing anything about the flagship's successor.
There have been rumours in recent weeks about the features likely to be incorporated in OnePlus Two and the launch, but a new information has narrowed down the launch date of the new handset to sometime in June, though OnePlus' CEO Peter Lau confirmed the OnePlus Two launch to happen in the third quarter.
OnePlus Two is one of the most-anticipated devices this year and has already got many potential buyers lined up. If the rumoured specs are any indication, the 2015 flagship will be more successful than its predecessor. Pricing will play a vital role in the success, and OnePlus is known to price its products so as to not burn the pockets of buyers.
So far we have learnt that OnePlus Two will come with a 5.5-inch display supporting up to 2560x1440 pixels screen resolution. Other features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage, 3,300mAh battery and OxygenOS based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. On the camera side, OnePlus is most likely to upgrade the sensor from 13-megapixels to 16MP while keeping the front camera at 5MP.
Interestingly, OnePlus is said to have ditched the polycarbonate body in favour of metal casing. The company will continue its invite-only system for the successor flagship, media reports suggest. The top-notch specs in the OnePlus Two are likely to come with a price higher than its predecessor. Rumours suggest the handset will be priced around Rs 33000.
In a recent report by Bloomberg, OnePlus is said to be planning to release two handsets. To accompany the OnePlus Two, the smartphone maker is likely to launch an affordable variant of the flagship. This shows the company's plans to cover its ground before going for a pricey handset, so buyers can always fall back to the budget handset if the OnePlus Two seems out of budget.
