OnePlus 2 Marked for July Release Date
A little over a year ago, OnePlus launched one of the most talked about Android devices around. From the company’s much maligned invite system to the great specs at a low price, the OnePlus One has certainly made waves. A recent rumor from MyDrivers pins a release date of “July” for the next iteration. Current rumors claim the OnePlus 2 will feature a Snapdragon 810, 3GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080 display, 3300 mAh battery, and a 13MP camera.
A OnePlus 2 has been talked about by the company’s CEO in several “Ask me Anything” sessions on reddit. Most recently co-founder Carl Pei replied to “You are named the head of Oneplus, a Chinese startup company aiming at the global mobile market. What do you do?” with:
Use customer feedback from OnePlus One to improve OnePlus 2
Prepare more inventory for a smoother launch
Ramp up support
Determine future vision
Develop the team
Keep working hard
Unfortunately, it seems that the invite system is here to stay for the OnePlus 2 according to an April 20th blog post. The OnePlus 2 is also expected to launch with a slightly higher price tag than the original’s $300 starting price.
Lastly, in a recent email blast OnePlus started two new contests with some pretty great prizes. There is a photo contest and a video contest; both with a chance to win you an all expense paid trip to their headquarters in Hong Kong.
