It’s been more than a year since the OnePlus One started its viral marketing hype machine. The device itself was announced last April and since then we’ve been wondering what its successor would be like.
OnePlus’ CEO was discussing the company’s next flagship smartphone on Weibo. After asking about what the phone’s potential price could be with the Snapdragon 810 SoC, he ended up favouring a price point of 2499 Yuan, which amounts to around $400 USD, making it $50 more than the 64GB OnePlus One. We all know how much controversy Qualcomm caused with its current SoC, and just recently, the semiconductor giant revealed an updated Snapdragon 810 to be used in Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro. So it will be very interesting to see how it fares against the competition.
The phone is expected to be released in the 3rd quarter of this year.
