OnePlus Two is one of the most awaited devices of the year and there have been several rumours surrounding its launch. Rubbishing a recent report that had speculated an imminent delay in the launch of the OnePlus One successor, the company's co-founder said the OnePlus Two release is on track. According to OnePlus boss Carl Pei, the upcoming OnePlus smartphone will be released in Q3 of 2015.
Pei did not comment on the exact release date, but urged fans to disapprove any news coming from "insanely crap sources", BGR reports.
OnePlus 2 is not delayed. I've said it again and again: don't get your news from these insanely crap sources.

OnePlus Two is expected to come with a massive overhaul in terms of specs, design and features. Earlier rumours have pointed out that OnePlus Two will adorn a metal frame, replacing the polycarbonate found in OnePlus One. Other specs include a 5.5-inch 2K or the same Full HD display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB RAM. Sources have added that the battery size will be bumped up from 3,100mAh to 3,300mAh, and the device will run on Android 5.0-based Oxygen OS out of the box, which was recently released to its Indian users.
On the camera side, OnePlus Two is expected to pack a 16 megapixel sensor with flash and a 5MP front snapper. As for the price, it is expected that the OnePlus Two will be slightly more expensive than the current model, but still remains affordable. According to an earlier report, GSM Arena reported that OnePlus Two will retail for around $430.
None of the speculated features have been confirmed by OnePlus, but an impending release will certainly shell out more details.
In other news, OnePlus is offering its One smartphone without invites every Tuesday, which is a sign that the company is overcoming the production shortages. In India, buyers can purchase the OnePlus One from Amazon.in without an invite on Friday too.
