While a lot of tech enthusiasts are still trying to get their hands on the OnePlus One, the company has gone on to hint at a successor that might come as early as Q2 or Q3 next year.
The OnePlus One was announced in April this year, and is sold on an invite-only basis. However, this model is all set to get a refresh with the pre-order system that will be put in place starting late October.
Coming back to the OnePlus Two (that would be the most obvious choice for a name), the device is expected to feature a smaller screen than the current 5.5 inches of the OnePlus One. Before officially announcing the One, OnePlus spoke extensively about how the device would be a 5.5 inch phone in the body of a 5 inch phone. However, this was clearly not to be.

A Reddit AMA session today made us learn about the OnePlus Two. “OnePlus 2 should be out in Q2 or Q3 of 2015. By that time, I’d think Android L would be standard. :).” said folks from the company. About the possibility of the device getting a smaller screen, OnePlus said “We’ve seen a lot of people asking for a smaller device, and want to let everyone know that we hear you. We’re thinking about it.”
So, it is quite clear that OnePlus wants to make it up to those who were left dejected by the unorthodox invite only system. The company also said that they underestimated demand by 30x, which lead to the scarcity.
