Both versions of OnePlus One are sold out on the OnePlus website; sequel to be unveiled soon?
The OnePlus 2 is expected to be unveiled next quarter, which begins July 1st and ends on September 30th. That covers quite a few days. But the inability to purchase the OnePlus One from the OnePlus site would seem to be a big clue that the sequel is coming sooner than later.
As we told you the other day, the OnePlus 2 will have specs typically associated with a high-end 2015 Android smartphone. That means it will be driven by the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 SoC, which includes an octa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is expected inside and we could see a back/front camera combo of 13MP/5MP.
If you're worried about the Snapdragon 810 chipset turning up the heat, the rumor mill has OnePlus turning down the heat by lowering the CPU's clock speed to 1.8GHz. As a comparison, the Sony Xperia Z3+, which has the Snapdragon 810 SoC under the hood, has experienced overheating issues with the CPU running at 2GHz.
Speaking of the Qualcomm produced chip, the Snapdragon 810 costs 60% more than the Snapdragon 801 chipset found in the OnePlus One. That means the sequels should be priced higher than the original models. The 16GB OnePlus One had a $299 launch price while the 64GB unit came to market at $349.
