OnePlus will announce a new, mysterious product on August 25

OnePlus just revealed that it's planning "something special" for August 25, when the world will "discover what's next" for the company. Before you get too excited, we have to point out that this is, most likely, not related to any new smartphone. Instead, as the teaser video embedded above is suggesting, OnePlus will probably announce a new pair of earphones, possibly a model to succeed the OnePlus Icons.

Available to buy since late 2015, the original OnePlus Icons are the company's most premium earphones to date. They currently cost $49.99, which isn't a bad price for a pair of earphones that sound good.

But what if OnePlus isn't announcing new headphones, and will actually surprise us with a new phone? Well, if this happens - and that's a big if - it will certainly not be a OnePlus X successor, as the company isn't planning on making one, at least not this year. Nevertheless, since the OnePlus 3 flagship is merely 2 months old, we don't really think OnePlus is ready to showcase any new handset. But we'll see about that on August 25.

Earphones...? Bloody earphones, you say? Pfft... I thought they're going to announce a 4.5" Version of OnePlus 3... With a $300 Price Tag... Imagine... 4.5 Inches, MIGHTY Snapdragon 820 with lots & LOTS or RAM, near stock Android, fast-ish updates and $300 Price-tag... Now that would've made my day (sigh)... Oh well... G'Day!

That would be nice but if Oneplus does make a mini I'm sure they'll settle for a lower chip like a Snapdragon 652 or a 650. Maybe even a 625 Which wouldn't be bad, but I just highly doubt they'll put an 820 in a mini version.

They won't. They are already regretting the oneplus x. That thing didn't get much support and oneplus realized that they can't support 2 phones a year.

How about they send out an update that fixes my broken Android Pay on my OP3 first

Metal Phone = no wireless charging so unfortunately I'm sorry I have to be the one to tell you this but...

Much like the plastic antenna lines it is possible to put wireless charging on a metal phone if you really want to. Also qualcomm announced wireless metal charging last year...
