The OnePlus One is a very unique Smartphone in its own right. The phone grabbed our attention given the unique selling strategy OnePlus used trying to get it into the market. Besides the unique selling strategy, the OnePlus One has some high end specs that made it a very popular Smartphone.
With the success of the OnePlus One, it makes sense for the company to come up with its successor. Rumours about the OnePlus One’s successor, the OnePlus Two have been around but nothing concrete has been revealed by the company. The latest rumours have been started by the company’s CEO himself.
Pete Lau, founder and CEO of OnePlus has been discussing with fans about OnePlus’s upcoming flagship to replace the OnePlus One. He talked a lot about OnePlus especially its OxygenOS.
Lau did not reveal much about this upcoming flagship but sort of confirmed that it will powered by Qualcomm’s latest Chipset, the Snapdragon 810. This processor has been criticised by Samsung claiming that it has overheating issues. Qualcomm has of course denied this saying the processor is ok.
As for pricing, Lau said that the phone will be retailing at around $403 (approximately Ksh 38,400 before taxes). This is quite fair considering most flagships currently in Kenya cost upwards of Ksh 55,000. As for launch date, we will probably see the OnePlus Two in the this quarter of this year.
