OnePlus is announcing something on June 1st, could be the OnePlus Two


OnePlus One Two announcement

Last year, the original OnePlus One was made official back in April. Here we are at the tail-end of May and suffice to say, we’re probably a little overdue for a One followup. Now, OnePlus never committed to a yearly release schedule for their devices, so it’s not like they’re actually “late.”

But with OEMs like Samsung, HTC, LG and Sony already playing their hands for this year, OnePlus has to do something and quick. If we had to give them credit for anything, it’d be keeping their cards so close to their chest. After several mini announcements this year (like OxygenOS) we may finally have a date for actual new hardware.

OnePlus is once again teasing an event on their Google+ page, but this time it looks like it could actually be the OnePlus One followup we’ve been waiting for and not some new portable battery charger or anything like that. The startup posted a photo of the original One being erased along with the tag line “we think it’s time for a change.” If we were betting men, we’d say a OnePlus Two is almost certain. Of course, this is OnePlus we’re talking about here, so we wont get our hopes up lets we find ourselves blindsided by a new OnePlus color or denim battery cover.

Like in previous years, 2015’s flagships all have a little something they’re missing. The Galaxy S6 has some of the worst battery life we’ve experienced on a handset, the G4 is simply too big to use comfortably with one hand, the One M9 has a terrible camera that only performs in the best lighting conditions. If OnePlus was smart, they’d carefully consider all of these weaknesses when building their new phone. With rumors that there could be 2 OnePlus handsets this year — a smaller sized phone and larger sized phablet — we hope they can surprise us.

  1. had to laugh at your line, “if One Plus One were smart”. Smart is one thing no one will ever accuse them of.

    1. They actually managed to turn a profit in their first year (which wasn’t expected), hire hundreds of employees from across the world, and launch in over 20 countries selling a little over a million handsets. I’m not defending them but they were able to do something right in little less than a year. I’ve been keeping track of their progress ever since I heard about them.

    2. One Plus One was useless so let’s see how dopey the One Plus two will be. Nobody will buy that junk either another perpetrating phablet ????

      1. Says the guy who has probably never seen the devices, let alone held or used it. What an uninformed moron

  2. soooo they are selling an eraser with the phone so they can erase the persons name above them on the invite list??

  3. Starting to loose faith in them. Though to be honest I’m starting to loose faith in all of android, but don’t look for me in the iSheep flock ’cause that definitely aint where I’m heading. Probably going back to bloody feature phones. At least I sometimes seriously consider it…

    1. I’ve resorted to the idea of buying one major device, Yota/Ara and seeing how long I can run with it. Nothing else is wowing me nowadays.

  4. 5.2″ phone please with Glove mode and wireless charging etc.

  5. As long as One Plus offers a 6” phablet the puny handed “single hand use is a deal breaker” crowd can have what ever they want. I’m not holding my breath though and plan to keep my Nexus 6 for 3 years before replacing the battery and owning it another 4 years until the battery won’t hold a charge and new batteries aren’t available. 6” screen plus front facing speakers: accept no substitutes.

  6. If already jumped ship to the blackberry passport. Since I am a tech nut I keep up here in case something wows me. But so far anything android has been pretty boring this year.

    1. I’ve

    2. You’re definitely nuts, that’s for sure

      1. You can knock it all you want but go to an att store and try one out and get back to me

  7. OnePlus: #NeverAgain

    1. lmao ???

  8. I’d be excited but I can’t get excited about something I may never get my hands on.

  9. Galaxy S6 worst battery life? Not since the latest updates, it runs for a day or so, at least that’s what I see on my S6

    1. Same here on the Edge

    2. yea, my wife has the edge and isn’t plagued by any of the issues that have been reported. I’m not doubting there existence, maybe she’s lucky.

      1. their

      2. Or maybe she doesn’t actually use her phone as much?

  10. OnePlus have the worst customer service ever. Who cares if the phone is brilliant value for money if the company that makes it doesn’t give a crap about the users. Once they have your money, they don’t want to know. Wouldn’t touch OnePlus with a barge pole.

    1. Yeah, because of how often I’ve called up Moto asking for help. Buy your phone and gtfo.

      1. You think all the phones in the world are only made by OnePlus and Motorola? They should introduce an IQ test as a prerequisite to commenting to filter out morons like you…haha!

        1. lol. I shouldn’t even bother.
          Nobody but Apple has good support.
          You bought a super cheap phone from a new manufacturer.

          1. You need to get your facts right, I never purchased a OnePlus phone, the huge negative customer complaints put me right off before it even became a serious consideration.

            And as for “Nobody but Apple has good support”…oh dear, another Apple sheep.

          2. I don’t use Apple products. You’d have to be an idiot to not see that their support is top notch.

  11. Give me a phone that’s <150mm wide, built out of something that isn't crappy plastic or glass, with microSD expansion and 32/64GB minimum internal storage, that lasts at least 24 hours even with 5-6 hours of screen-on time, and takes acceptable photos in any situation or light level. That and a clean and fluid software experience is all I can ask for. I'd take a removable battery if that was still an option, and I don't care if it's 10mm thick.
