OnePlus co-founder believes the OnePlus 2 can be as influential as the Galaxy S6, iPhone 6s, and HTC One M9

OnePlus co-founder believes the OnePlus 2 can be as influential as the Galaxy S6, iPhone 6s, and HTC One M9
Yesterday, when OnePlus held an AMA (ask me anything) session on Reddit, Carl Pei, one of the company's co-founders, answered to a question about the next-generation OnePlus flagship smartphone.

According to Carl Pei, the handset is indeed called OnePlus 2, just as previously reported. Interestingly, Pei mentioned that he thinks the OnePlus 2 will be one of the four "really influential flagship smartphones this year", alongside Samsung's Galaxy S6, HTC's One M9, and Apple's iPhone 6s (of whatever the new iPhone will be called in the end).

While the OnePlus official didn't provide more details about the OnePlus 2, we heard that this would offer a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, 4 GB of RAM, and an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. Moreover, the new smartphone should feature a metal chassis, possibly costing more than the first generation OnePlus handset (which can be bought for as low as $299).

Next month, OnePlus will announce a brand new device, but it looks like this is a drone, so the OnePlus 2 smartphone will probably be introduced sometime later. Are you waiting for it?

Exactly. That was such a huge turnoff from a company.

If they keep the price under $400 for 64gb (or more?), and they can actually get phones into people's hands and pockets without an invite system or production delays, then this phone can definitely make a difference. Front facing speakers and band 12 (T-Mobile 700MHz) support wouldn't hurt either.

Hope qualcomm solves heating issue.

M9 is influential? I doubt so. It feels disappointing compared to the excellent M7 and M8. I think it's better to get M8 as M8 has a better screen, low light camera/video and battery life. It's also cheaper.

The Note 5, LG G4, Moto X (2015), Nexus 6 (2015) will all be more influential than the OnePlus Two in my opinion.

It can if they improve they customer service, availability and better hardware control. There was a lot of vibe around 1+1 which eventually was shadowed by not so average post sale service.

bla bla bla. a lot of big words. wish they would just focus on actually keeping their word - we have heard things like that in the past too. and then all we got was horrible customer service, delayed updates and empty promises.

Availability will be the primary limitation. They'll sell every single unit if they price it like they did last year's phone. It's companies that innovate on their pricing strategies that stand the best chance of breaking into the market. I'm sick of overpriced handsets.

The one plus should aim for doing better than blackberry, then worry about trying to move to the big leagues.

I love my OnePlus One, but let's get honest. The Two is going to be a niche phone just like the One. As long as they keep the price low I will consider it. But if they can't I'm just going to go after what ever the newest phone that has insane battery life like my BLU Studio Energy or my wife's Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G...

One plus had one huge problem. With a weak antenna it made the phone hardly useful in urban areas. It was by far the worst experience i had when it comes to actua coverage. Thats too big of an issue because it prevents you form accessing anything data related or calling someone for that matter. They want to have influence they need to ensure the basics are covered. Im willing to try the one plus 2 though.
