We already know that OnePlus is working on OnePlus Two, the successor of its One smartphone, which is scheduled to release later this year. Surprisingly, the company is also working on another mysterious phone with a ‘design first – specs second’ approach.
OnePlus founder Carl Pei divulged this info in conversation with PC World. “I think it’s going to be a phone catering to a different type of audience. Perhaps for those who appreciate design over specs”, he stated.
OnePlus One in itself is pretty decent looking device. We have heard complaints that it’s a little too big to handle efficiently. It would be interesting to see what OnePlus wishes to flaunt with this surprise entry in its portfolio. Our guess would be a smaller (5 Inch display) and slimmer smartphone which phablet hating audience has been asking for.
Before they started retailing the One, the company estimated to sell around 500,000 smartphones. However, it has already sold over 1 Million smartphones so far and many people are still looking to buy one. With two more smartphones in works, challenges will only increase for its nascent After Sales Support network.
Pei didn’t talk about specs, price or availability of this new device. The OnePlus Two on the other hand is rumored to feature a 5.5 Inch display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 32 GB storage, 16 MP Rear/ 5 MP Front camera and 3300 mAh battery.
