Did the OnePlus Two just show up for pre-order? We don't think so, but you're invited to take a look anyway
Surprise, surprise! Chinese online seller Geekbuying decided to hoist a certain ONEPLUS TWO smartphone for preorder - without any official announcements from the folks at OnePlus. Although we refuse to believe the smartphone shown here is real until we're supplied cold, solid evidence and a crate of Jagermeister to celebrate the occasion, we have to admit the product image looks quite nice. It's certainly along the lines of how we'd imagine the OnePlus Two could turn out, although the bottom capacitive keys are impossible to comprehend. 

Regardless, the spec sheet is pleasing too - there are a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM at play here, along with a 16MP main camera and a frontal 5MP cam. The house is ran by a 3300mAh battery, and the operating system is cited as Oppo's Color OS, based on Android 4.4. Fair enough! The whole shebang is on a pre-sale price of $538, down from a hefty $865. Deliveries of whatever you'll be getting if you dare chip in with the $538 will commence in February 2015.

We advise you to treat the news with healthy skepticism. Enjoy the eye candy, debate the specs, theorize whether OnePlus will require a clean bill of health and a detailed examination of your family tree along with the invite in order to sell you the OnePlus Two. Just don't take this at face value.

Really? Worst fake I've seen in a while. Not even worth a mention on here. I think I'm giving you a break PA. This is just too bad.

Sure it is fake, but they do sell the one plus one china edition there for $423 http://www.geekbuying.com/item/ONEPLUS-ONE-5-5inch-Qualcomm-Core-Smartphone-Quad-Core-CPU-2-5GHz-LTPS-Screen-3GB-RAM-64GB-ROM-13-0MP-4G-FDD-LTE-OTG-NFC-Miracast---Black-329244.html It's just a place holder for now. Why would you pre order it though through them is not smart. However they have a good reputation for buying chinese gadgets. Just read up about them at freaktab.

Yeah, this is the fake lg g4 that was posted like a week ago. Just awful. I can't believe people get paid to post this garbage.

"Color OS(based on Android 4.4)" OnePlus is developing their own ROM, so what is this ?

Those buttons on the frame of the phone look real legit. Nice find. /s

Interesting. The back would display "Cyanogen" despite the phone running Color OS? Seems completely legit to me. Not to mention the out-of-date Telegram icon, a mix of Material Design icons in a supposedly 4.4-running ROM, or the completely plausible capacitive buttons on the bottom part of the frame. Honestly, this supposed "render" is laughable on so many points, it almost isn't funny anymore. The specs might be real though, and maybe this is just a (terrible) placeholder. But shipping in Feb 2015 when it's still hard to get a OnePlus One? Sorry but I have trouble believing it.

One plus has actually released numerous one plus one devices running Color OS. So for the few of you above calling foul for that reason alone. You obviously do NOT know OPO very well, so don't spew your OPINION as if it were a FACT. Good day (go do some research)

That is true. They are selling OPO with colour OS preinstalled and no cyanogen logo for the Chinese market.

Indeed. The problem is, a phone running Color OS would not sport a CyanogenMod logo at its back. So while the specs might be true, the render is clearly as fake as can be.

Not plugging the site but I've actually used the website on many occasions myself and found their service to be great and items,packaging and delivery always came as advertised.Some of the handsets,tablets and tv boxes on there are great spec and great prices

Reseller ratings has them at 9.54 out of 10. People complained that they have to ship stuff back to China, well, that's where all the stuff is they sell, obviously. They have it for a few dollars more that you can ship back to a US based returns center, if you opt to do so on your order. Otherwise, they are no different than buying android boxes on ebay.

If you look closely to the back of the phone you can see on the last row of the small white text: "DEL: ONE A0001 FCC..... Blah blah blah". Which is a part of "MODEL: ONE A0001". This is clearly the back of the Oneplus One, they will never have the same modelnumber, and the Oneplus Two will not have One on the back. This is pure scam.

obviously the original one plus one back cover. the top front looks like lg g2 and the bottom of the phone it is obious that the lines for the capacitive touch buttons were copied and pasted over the image of the phone. Deffinitely not the next one plus 2

"but you're invited to take a look anyway" - Luis, I saw what did there, clever.
