OnePlus One sequel with dual SIM, microSD slot found in promotional video?

OnePlus One sequel with dual SIM, microSD slot found in promotional video?
A still image allegedly taken from a OnePlus promotional video, supposedly shows a device that might be the next phone offered by the upstart manufacturer. The photo reveals a device that supports dual SIM cards and has a microSD slot. The OnePlus One, the phone currently offered by OnePlus, does not offer dual SIM slots, nor does it support microSD cards.

There has been plenty of speculation about the next phone to roll off of the OnePlus assembly line. Pictures of a device thought to be the OnePlus One mini recently were leaked, but the phone turned out to be the Koobee H2, another handset manufactured in China.

There has also been some talk about a OnePlus Two, which would keep the 5.5-inch screen, but possibly bump up the resolution to 1440 x 2560. This model would be equipped with a 16MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP "selfie" shooter up front. 32GB of native storage might be inside the sequel, along with a Snapdragon 805 CPU. A 3300mAh battery could power the whole shebang.

Your best bet here would be to take this rumor with a grain of salt. While the odds favor a sequel to the successful OnePlus One, there is no guarantee that such a device would include an additional SIM slot, or offer room for extra memory cards.

It seems like they should possibly work on making the original more accessible to people wanting to buy it rather than a sequel...but maybe that's just me.

I still don't get the fact that why people bash OnePlus One so much for its availability. You guys need to realize that a phone at such a price point don't really have funds to create and store huge inventory as Samsung or Apple do.

Those cutting edge specs and hardware at a fraction of price is not simple to achieve. Samsung or Apple can because they already know their flagships are gonna sell millions but a debut product with a debut software such as OnePlus One's demand can't be reliably predicted. Also to keep the price down they just relied on hype on social medias and tech sites without spending huge on ads or marketing which is an another risky strategy.

PS. It is available here quite easily in UK now. They were even offering to deliver before christmas a couple of weeks back.

It's not the point of the availability of the phone, its the process on how they went about it with their invite system.

Although I agree they did made up some goof ups along the way but I am willing to cut them some slack as they aren't nearly as experienced as other well-versed in this sector.

But there was no other way to get around to the problem of excessive demand then to release it via invite systems.

so better to put them online and let a dozen or so people buy up all of them the moment they went up for sale? people are/were using scripts to sniff out invite codes on the oneplus forums and immediately buy before anyone could click.

i think they did just fine. if you really wanted to get an opo, you could have. and nowadays... it is extremely easy to get one. it took a whopping four days for me to log on the forums, get an invite, then have the phone on my doorstep and in my hands.

The problem here is. If they go down the route of pre-orders, the order lead time is going to be months. With that, there will be other folks who complain about bad planning, yada yada yada.

With the invite systems, people are not discriminated by the price. Only those who really want it will do whatever it can to get it. And, that is the point of the invite system.

I have gotten 5 invites myself for my sister and friends.

OMG ! You blind followers really need to calm your tits down !

I don't bash an OEM I bash a product. Also, I never say bad about a product without a REASON ! If you don't agree argue or counter me.

If you can't then just STFU instead of bringing the IQ of the entire internet with your narrow-mindedness !

No one could say that Nokia is not a famous phone manufacturer only idiot, illiterate, or troll.
Choose one

Are you delusional ? When did I EVER say Nokia isn't famous ?! I knew fanboys are blind but you're taking things to another level....lol

I challenge you find me one comment of minewhere I say Nokia isn't famous. I've owned Nokia 5300 (the music phone), Nokia 6600 (the first camera phone, I think) and Nokia N73. But unlike you I don't live in the past. Nokia's days are over and you blind fanboys need to understand that.

Agreed.

I imagine it might have been hard to get an invite for the first couple of months, but when I found myself wanting a new phone and choosing the OPO, I was able to get an invite on the second day of trying. I got the phone about 10 weeks ago. The people complaining about the invites either were trying to get one right when they were "released" or they are complaining about something that they haven't actually tried doing. Clearly OnePlus would have loved to have a huge stockpile and have met demand, but if what they did was inevitable due to the quality/price ratio they chose, then so be it. The phone is great and the price is awesome.

Yes sir. I love it. The price has spoiled me so much along with the battery life. I left the Nexus 5 for the One+One. The best $350 I have ever spent.

Spoiler alert: that picture is from April.

Just go to "OnePlus One - Never Settle" video in YouTube (sorry can't post links) and watch at 1:04.

OnePlus better stick to 1080p display...1440p is battery hog.

I will probably buy the One+2 just like I did the One+One. I no longer have an interest in Htc, Samsung, or Apple because of how impressed I am with the One+One's hardware and price!! I will never pay over $500 for a phone again.

As my second phone, I have enjoyed the OPO a lot. In fact I am #15K something and got the phone back in July. I hope they continue the great hardware specs on the OPT. I doubt though CM will be on it since their relationship with them is quite rocky now because of the CM deal with Micromax.
