First OnePlus One 2 rumors point to more customization options, affordable price, and hardware surprises

Price-wise, the anonymous source said OnePlus is aming for a sub-$500 tag, which is still cheaper than what the competition has to offer - outside of China, that is. The company wants to keep its profit margins thin, regardless of the hardware and software features. Speaking of which, the leakster promised "surprises in store when it comes to hardware", but did not spill any details.
By the shape of things, the OnePlus 2 will be another excellent smartphone. Given the company's ambition to sell the latest and greatest hardware in a very design-conscious package at cost, it's safe to say the OnePlus 2 will offer a lot for the money. However, the fallout from its predecessor's ill-conceived marketing schemes, manufacturing and customer support issues, looms over it. Hopefully, OnePlus has learned from its mistakes and amassed enough capital to have the promotion, supply, and quality factors sorted out.
While we're waiting for further produce from the rumor mill, check out these nice concept renderings of the OnePlus 2 by Nikolar Prettner (1) and Jermaine Smit (2, 3, 4, 5, 6). They aren't particularly out there, but might end up close to the real thing.

The device may be great but whats the point if it can't be in the consumer hands.

Yup, I'm willing to give them a second chance if they are willing to let me actually purchase their device. And I don't mean 3 months later when it's hardware is not longer top-notch, I want a pre-order system, anything less is more of a hassle than I'm willing to deal with.

If you read Mandarin (or happen to know how to ues Google Translate), you can purchase the phone directly from their Chinese websites. The products are open for sale every Tuesday and Friday at 10:00AM Beijing Time. The price is a little higher than 300 dollars, (374 to be exact), but the availability is not necessarily that limited, and you don't need a stupid invite. :\

way to agressive I can make it as good and keeping the cost down 5.5" 1080p IPS display wtih gorilla glass 4, minimum bezels on the top and bottom but including front facing stereo speakers with a all black front pane. the next snapdragon which will be the 808 with adreno 420 GPU 3GB of ram is still good and will keep cost down improved 13 MP camera or 16 MP but this time with OIS and ability to shoot 240fps slow motion, 1080p at 60fps and 4k at 30fps improved front facing 5 MP cam with a led flash 32GB & 64GB models with Micro SD support battery 3100maH+ (808 + android 5.0 will consume much less bat) IP certification for Water and dust Proof and of course non other then Cyanogenmod on it So this way they can price it $400 for the 32GB and $450 for the 64GB

The fingerprint scanner on the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is way better.

Hardcore fanboy will still pick nexus 6 and happy to lock themselves into carrier cage. Smart educated android user would definitely pick this as price to value ratio meet satisfaction.

I spent months chasing the One, gave up after running CM11 on my old S3 and hating it, and bought a G3, which is spectacular. Finally got an invite for the OPO and grabbed one, had it less than a day. CM11 is just as rubbish on that, flakey, reboots often, crappy camera compared to the G3, so I sold it on. Hopefully they can sort the OS and QC issues on the OP2.
