Smaller OnePlus Two coming to market in the middle of next year?
It seems strange to be talking about a sequel to the OnePlus One in light of the difficulties that the company has had marketing its value priced high-end phone. With some controversial contests and the invitation system (which is soon about to end in favor of proper pre-orders), it has not been smooth sailing for the OnePlus One. Still, during an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, a pair of OnePlus team members leaked out some news.

The last we heard about a OnePlus One sequel was back in July. Back then, now retired leakster @evleaks had tweeted that the codename of the OnePlus Two would be lettuce. That dovetails with the first OnePlus handset, which is codenamed bacon.

According to the two OnePlus teammates, in response to requests from customers, the OnePlus Two might have a smaller footprint. The current model has a 5.5 inch screen and users are complaining about not being able to use the device with one hand. Possible screen sizes for the OnePlus Two could be 5.2 inches, 5 inches or 4.7 inches.

Will there be a OnePlus smartwatch? While the two OnePlus suits didn't come right out and say so, they did admit to testing products in different categories, but are not sure what they will eventually release. One thing seems certain, and that is we will see OnePlus turn to more traditional methods for selling its handsets, starting with the current OnePlus One model.

Thanks for the tip!

pros: fastest, smoothest phone available in the market. battery life that rivals xperia z2. great design, active developer community $350 bucks cons: need invite to purchase, likelihood of small manufacture defect, maybe a bit big for some people, ok camera, non-removable battery

I'll give you my opinion on the phone. I upgraded from the HTC Butterfly, which I bought in end of 2012. Definitely faster, but I mean they all load applications etc fine so there isn't too much difference in terms of real life performance imo except for load times (which is only about .5 second difference, very negligible if you're not picky) Camera is better. But I mean I have a DSLR so unless they take photos as good as those, camera phones are really yet to impress me... I was expecting the front 5mp camera to be a huge upgrade from my 2.1, but actually in a lot of cases I can say that HTC has done a brilliant job with their front cameras and they arent extraordinarily different. Battery life is brilliant on the One. Not gonna lie, Butterfly was the first phone with 1080p so probably the most inefficient screen power efficiency out there. But definitely more clarity on my Butterfly, perhaps even nicer colours...but for sure lower maximum brightness. To be honest, the hype has not lived up to my expectations. This will be the case for almost all 2014 flagships out there though, since we can say that the performance will be similar. But if you're upgrading from anything less than a HTC Butterfly, then yeah definitely worth the purchase. But for now, phones aren't providing anything so deal-breaking. Anyway, just my opinion.

DOOD most smartphones 2012+ can last for a long time. People just want the next new thing. you just have to change the battery and restore the phone every two years. or custom roms....

The third one is going to be codenamed "Tomato". Together, all tree of them will be a delicious BLT!

A smaller version would be AWESOME. I sold mine primarily because it was simply too large. Then again if some truly compelling smart watches come to the fore in the next few years the size of the won't be an issue. I'd also like to see it be waterproof. Pretty sure I won't be buying a phone that's not waterproof going forward.

OnePlus 9000 coming soon. Shouldn't 1+2 be the next flagship? The mini version should be 1+1.5 or 1+0.5. LOL
