OnePlus will announce something on April 20; the OnePlus 2, maybe?
While OnePlus already confirmed that it's planning to launch two new smartphones in 2015, one of them being called OnePlus 2, both are expected to be available in the second half of the year. Still, this doesn't mean that OnePlus can't announce them (or at least one of them) in the near future. The company today sent out virtual invitations to a mysterious event that will be held on Monday, April 20.

Other than "From here on out, anything could happen. #‎NeverSettle‬", OnePlus doesn't say anything about the event. However, since the OnePlus One was announced one year ago, in April 2014, perhaps it's time for the OnePlus 2 to be officially unveiled. As previously reported, the OnePlus 2 will likely be more expensive than the OnePlus One (which costs as low as $299, unlocked). The new handset might be powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor, while also possibly featuring expandable memory, fingerprint scanner, and a 5.5-inch display.

As for the other new smartphone that OnePlus is working on, this should be a cheaper model, and for now there's no word on what features it may offer.

What do you think, will OnePlus really announce a new smartphone on April 20, or are we going to see another product being presented on that day?

Atleast it will not be Oneplus Two, because company's CEO has already confirmed the successor's launch in Q3/Q4...

A launch is different from an announcement. For example, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge were announced on March 1, and launched this month.

Announcement and Launch generally happens at the gap of 1-3 months. It's never been like Announcement is in April and launch will happen in December....

Phone is very unlikely...but if they do announce 1+ 2...it'd be interesting to see how they deal with S810 thermal issues.

Easy, use an 808, charge $299 for the device, and then watch their website melt down again.

They've already explained in their previous AMA why expandable storage is not their cup of tea, so keep on wishing, guys.
