OnePlus has long been expected to launch its next smartphone in the second half of this year, and now the company has teased a launch of the OnePlus One successor, thought to be called the OnePlus Two, on Monday
The Chinese firm on Tuesday teased the launch, saying "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." While the OnePlus teaser does not directly mention the next smartphone, the image accompanying it (seen above) shows a half-drawn half-rendered OnePlus One smartphone with the caption 'Time to change', definitely hinting at the launch of the next smartphone. The teaser also comes days after the OnePlus Two was alleged spotted on two benchmark tests.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau earlier this month also gave clues on the handset's price and processor. The CEO asked his followers on Weibo what price tag the OnePlus Two should sport if it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. After receiving several answers, Lau agreed with some of his followers who had suggested a price of CNY 2,499 (roughly Rs. 25,000). Lau had asked, "If OnePlus Two comes with Snapdragon 810, what do you think will be the price?" and then later replied, "2,499 Yuan seems to be a reasonable price."
As per the more recent benchmark test, the upcoming OnePlus Two would feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor; 3GB of RAM; full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display; 5-megapixel front camera, and Adreno 430 GPU. Also tipped is a 13-megapixel rear camera, 3300mAh battery; 4G LTE; GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB and OTG connectivity. The benchmark test from last week also suggested Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out-of-the-box.
