OnePlus 2 and a cheaper OnePlus smartphone should both be released this year
We already heard quite many things about the successor to the OnePlus One, which, according to a company co-founder, will be called OnePlus 2. Bloomberg is confirming that the OnePlus 2 is expected to be launched in the third quarter, while also mentioning that OnePlus has yet another new smartphone in the pipeline: a cheaper model that should be released before the end of the year.
While there's no word on exactly what the cheaper OnePlus handset will bring, OnePlus Director Carl Pei recently said that the device could be made for "a different type of audience, perhaps for those who appreciate design over specs.”
As for the OnePlus 2, this might come with an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, a fingerprint scanner, and microSD card support. The OnePlus 2 could be more expensive than the OnePlus One, which costs as low as $299 (unlocked). Well, we're looking forward to seeing what OnePlus has in store for us.
