OnePlus One

After the successful launch of the OnePlus One (pictured above), the company is preparing to unveil its second generation device at some point next year. While we’re missing many details on the upcoming OnePlus Two — or that’s OnePlus One 2 — we did caught few tidbits here and there. Mostly, though, these details stem from Business Insider’s report.

OnePlus intends to use the top-notch hardware while keeping the phone relatively affordable. Whereas other high-end devices usually cost north of $600, the OnePlus Two will be available with a price tag of $500 or less.

3. Surprise, surprise…

The company’s Carl Pei said that they will have “some surprises in store” though we are left wondering what these surprises are all about. Perhaps, OnePlus Two gets some exclusive accessories that are not available with other handsets. If I would have to pick, I would want a keyboard cover case a la Typo Cover.

4. Launch date

The OnePlus Two (OnePlus One 2) will be officially announced in the middle of next year. Considering that the original OnePlus One was launched in June, we would expect its successor to be unveiled in the same month. Though you never know…
