Last year, popular Chinese startup firm OnePlus launched its flagship smartphone One, which stirred up a huge storm in the mobile phone industry and some fans tentatively named it the flagship smartphone killer. Now, the company is ready with its successor.
OnePlus took to Twitter to announce that the company is ready to launch its new device on 1 June.
Though it refrained from revealing the significance of the event, its not-so-cryptic graphic poster that displays a OnePlus One being erased and redesigned gives a subtle indication that OnePlus Two will be unveiled on coming Monday.
"We're always looking for ways to shake up the tech industry. And we think it's time for change. Find out more June 1," reads OnePlus' Twitter account.
Expected Features of OnePlus Two:
Numerous reports have indicated that OnePlus Two will sport a 5.5-inch QHD (2560x1440p) display and inside, it reportedly houses the Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 SoC (System on Chip) backed by 4GB RAM, 64GB (expandable), 3,300mAh battery, 16mp camera on the rear-side and a 5mp snapper on the front.
Key aspect of OnePlus One successor is that the company, after officially cutting cords with its software partner Cyanogen last month, will be incorporating their in-house developer-community built Oxygen OS (based on Android 5.0 Lollipop).

And it has been learnt that the company used metal instead of polycarbonate to cover the rear side to make the new phone look premium like devices of tier-1 brand rivals Samsung, Apple and HTC.
With top-of-the-line hardware feature inside the body, OnePlus Two is rumoured to come with budget-friendly price-tag of ¥2499 (around $403/€369/₹25,752).
If the specifications and budget friendly price-tag of OnePlus Two turns out to be true, then there is no doubt that the Chinese company will once again disrupt the global smartphone market, giving tier-1 companies like Samsung, HTC and Apple, a run for their money.
