OnePlus 2 could debut this Monday, June 1, company teaser hints
A new-generation smartphone from OnePlus may debut as soon as Monday, June 1, if a new company teaser is any indication.
OnePlus made a positive impression on the market with its OnePlus One smartphone, touted as the "flagship killer." The handset launched as a great mix of power, performance, affordability, and design, receiving high praise and gaining lots of popularity. One drawback, however, was that the company chose to make its flagship killer available on an invite-only basis, which made it somewhat difficult to obtain the device.
Back in April, OnePlus started teasing a big announcement for their one-year anniversary, and many thought that a OnePlus Two might make its debut. Instead, the company announced open availability for the OnePlus One, ditching the infamous invite-only system. At the same time, OnePlus also acknowledged that it was indeed working on a new-generation smartphone, which will also launch on an invite-based system later this year.
Rumors of the OnePlus 2 have been intensifying recently, and it now seems that the smartphone could make its debut as soon as next week. In a mysterious post on its Twitter page, OnePlus teased an upcoming announcement for Monday, June 1.
"We're always looking for ways to shake up the tech industry. And we think it's time for change. Find out more June 1," OnePlus tweeted.
The post is also accompanied by an intriguing image, showing a OnePlus One smartphone that's being erased (see image above), along with the tagline "Time to Change." This could indicate that the company is building on the OnePlus success to create a second-generation smartphone, erasing some parts of the original to make room for something better.
The teaser post doesn't reveal much else, but the OnePlus 2 should sport notable improvements over its predecessor. Considering that the OnePlus One is already impressive for its price tag, it will be interesting to see just what the OnePlus 2 will have to offer to "shake up the tech industry."
Rumors and reports so far have indicated that the OnePlus 2 would hit the market sometime in the third quarter of this year, but nothing is confirmed for now. If OnePlus indeed plans to unveil its new-generation smartphone on June 1, the OnePlus 2 could hit retail sooner than expected. We'll keep an eye out for the company's announcement next Monday and keep you up to date as soon as we learn more, so stay tuned.
