The next OnePlus "flagship killer" might be called the "OnePlus 2", reportedly delayed to Q3 2015

As far as the specs of the device are concerned, we've heard numerous times that OnePlus will probably go all-in and not fail to employ its next smartphone with some killer head-turning specs. The latest rumors claim that the OnePlus 2 will ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, 4GB of RAM, and a 5.5-inch QHD display.
The rumored overheating issues of the chipset are tipped to have caused the purported Q3 launch date. Well, we guess we'd get to know more as time unravels.

So, would it be the phone that's delayed for Q3 or the invites?

Cyanogenmod = 99% pure Android + few optional tweaks

By Q3 of 2015 there may be enough divergence between Cyanogenmod and the "pure Google Android" as 5.1 or whatever should be rolling out around taht time. Just over the weekend Cyanogenmod announced that they want to remove Google from their Android... which will be a difficult proposition moving forward. I think they may want to fork but considering the manpower and updates done by Google it will be obsoleted very fast and a challenge to maintain. Bottom line is get your popcorn.

we do know that there will be an invite system to sell the 2. at least for the first bit. carl pei said it himself at ces. the interview is on tomshardware i think. it was an excellent interview. explained a whole lot about everything. TH: Are you planning on using the invite system again for future devices? CP: As this product matures and we understand better the demand for this product, we’re going to find other ways of making it more available. For instance, in December—before Christmas and during our one-year anniversary—and then one time before as well, we had pre-orders where you could come and buy the phone. If the phone became out-of-stock, it became a pre-order. So we’re going to continue experimenting with this phone on how to make it more available while still kind of controlling the risk for us. I think in the beginning for our next devices, it’s going to be invite only for a much shorter period than it was for this phone—maybe one-fourth. Then eventually it becomes a pre-order model, once we have the data from the invites to see what the demand is like. http://www.tomshardware.com/re
