Carl Pei, Director of OnePlus Global was part of a Reddit AMA (Ask me Anything) earlier today where he revealed the company’s plans to launch the OnePlus 2. This will act as the successor to the OnePlus One which is yet to be launched on a large scale. He reiterated that the current flagship will still be up for grabs going into 2015 with pre-orders expected to begin soon.
He didn’t share much information on the OnePlus 2, but subtly indicated that the company might be considering a smaller display. This is barely any confirmation, but it is likely that OnePlus would be looking to target the sweet spot between 5 and 5.5 inches, so don’t be surprised if the successor is significantly smaller than the OnePlus One. But we’re still a long way from seeing this smartphone, so don’t hold your breath.
OnePlus is primarily focused on gaining back the trust of the public after its repeated failure with the invite system. The company mentions that the demand for the handset was 30 times the expected amount, so clearly the demand has taken everybody by surprise.
