OnePlus' upcoming "game changer" device to be a drone?
Earlier this month, OnePlus revealed that it would announce a brand new product in April, calling it a "game changer."

The company made it pretty clear that this wouldn't be a smartphone, a tablet, or a smartwatch, but didn't provide further details. However, now it looks like we know what the new device is.

During an AMA (ask me anything) session on Reddit, a OnePlus official today answered to a question regarding the upcoming product, saying that "it's a drone, the DR-1, and we will start selling it next month." Well, the last teaser image that we can see in the slideshow below does seem to show someone holding a drone remote controller. Then again, maybe this statement is just a decoy, and OnePlus will announce something else next month.

It's not clear why OnePlus expects its drone to be a game changer (assuming that the new device is indeed a drone). But the Chinese company already has a product that can be seen as a game changer - the affordable, yet impressively powerful OnePlus One smartphone - so let's wait and see what happens in April. It's worth mentioning that DJI, maker of the Phantom drone (arguably the best-known drone right now) is also a Chinese company.
