OnePlus to introduce new product next month; device is not a smartwatch, tablet or even a smartphone
According to OnePlus founder Carl Pei, who was spotted walking the grounds at MWC, the company is going to be entering a new product category next month. What will this new product be? The easy guesses, such as a smartwatch or a tablet, have both been denied by the executive. That still leaves quite a few possibilities such as branded speakers, a fitness band carrying the OnePlus name, or even a smart television.

And of course, there is still the matter of the OnePlus One sequel. Pei had previously said back in January that the follow-up to the successful handset would "surprise people," although what exactly he was referring to is still unclear. A smartphone isn't a new product category, so we can rule out the OnePlus Two as being the mystery device.

Pei has indicated that tablets are not a product that he wants OnePlus to start building. According to the executive, no one in the industry is profiting from building tablets at the current time thanks to expanding phablet sales.

So what new product category will OnePlus find itself entering in April? You can give us your prediction by posting your comments in the box below.

A OnePlus smart TV with OxygenOS would be awesome! Keep the price low with great specs and you'll have a fierce competitor to all smart TV's especially the Xiaomi Mi TV 2. And the UI on the Mi TV 2 looks complicated to use.

Either they will unveil the OnePlus 2 or hopefully a smart TV from them.

Maybe a digital camera alla RE Camera from HTC or a headset like the Moto Hint by Motorola.

Yeah, maybe. I think a headset of some kind would be a good bet.

You said it yourself, One Plus is a smartphone. Maybe the new device is a Phablet?
One Plus Mega Note?
One Plus+Note?

New smart glasses would be cool or maybe a game console, now that would be interesting, perhaps a notebook or laptop. some type of smart wearable that hasn't been seen before.

Air purifier like Xiaomi. China's air is so dirty they'll make a fortune with it.

It's a smart ring. It will form constructs made of light powered by the users will. Unfortunately, you'll still need to charge it every day, but it comes with a power battery for that.

The product they need is not a new product, but a way for me to buy the product when I want to buy it.
