5 potential new features of OnePlus' upcoming smartphone
After all of the fanfare that met the launch of the OnePlus 2, the company's divisive invitation system has already reached a passed two million reservations. With fans having trailed the flagship smartphone for so long, the company has already begun sounding off about a new device that could be ready to launch this side of Christmas. We've heard though the OnePlus Reddit AMA that said handset will not be called the OnePlus 3 or OnePlus 2S, leading many to believe that the firm will push a scaled-down, 'mini' edition of the device. But with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei having told USA Today that it "may or may not" house better specs than the OnePlus 2, we could also be looking at a beastlier offering than what's already here. 

The idea that the new device will not be a direct successor to the OnePlus 2 doesn't really tell us anything about what it may look like, or what kind of specs it will harbor. To say that the OnePlus 2 is already well kitted-out would be quite the understatement. Boasting a full-HD, 5.5-inch display, Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 810 and an eye-watering 4 gigs of RAM, it can stand up against any of the industry's most celebrated handsets on paper. Despite ticking most of the key boxes, there are still elements that OnePlus could brush up on, and while there's almost no chance that all of these features will make the cut, here we ponder five shortcomings that the company might wish to address.
