OnePlus co-founder says the OnePlus Two will "surprise people", company won't do tablets
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei opened up about the company's existing products and upcoming devices in an interview with Android Headlines. Thanks to the One's success, OnePlus is on a consistent growth trajectory and is looking forward to many nice things. First, future products will be having separate American, European, and probably Asian versions to accommodate each region's network and data bands. As you might know, the OnePlus One supports just one band in the UK, for example. 

What else did we learn? Apparently, the company loses $0.50 on each one of those beautiful portable battery packs it's been selling for a while. To us, they are quality cheap accessories. To OnePlus, they are an investment and marketing tool. There's a lesson to be had here.

Further down the conversation, Mr. Pei is adamant that nobody in the industry is profiting from tablets, and that the smartphone commands enough industry and consumer interest to be the sole focus of a device maker. In other words, don't expect a tablet from OnePlus like, ever. Pei did mention the company has prototypes of wearable devices, but hasn't decided upon what to do next. It has, however, decided on a OnePlus Two. The co-founder revealed that the smartphone's display size has been changed several times already, and the device will "surprise people". Having changed its release window four or five times as well, OnePlus has settled on the second or third quarter of 2015.

Talking about older products again, Carl Pei said that a new batch of 10,000 Bamboo StyleSwap covers for the OnePlus One has beenproduced and they are available for purchase. In addition, as the smartphone is nearing the end of its product cycle, the company is looking forward to clearing its inventory by selling it sans the invite system when the time to unveil the Two comes. So keep a spare three hundred bucks around if you're still after the OnePlus One.
