OnePlus’ announcement for June 1 will ‘shake up the tech industry’


OnePlus has announced in true OnePlus fashion that the Chinese company is going to ‘shake up the tech industry’. To be very fair, that is something their first and only phone yet — the OnePlus One — did also.

There’s no word on what the event will see, but we doubt if it’ll be the OnePlus Two. The OnePlus Two (or whatever the company chooses to call it) will come in the third quarter this year, so there’s at least a couple months to go before that.

The teaser depicts a half-erased image of a OnePlus One and reads ‘Time to change’. ‘Time to change’… could it be a OnePlus Smartwatch? Rumours of a device like that did show up at a point in time but seem to have died down since. Speculations around the announcement also include the possibility of a OnePlus One price cut (wouldn’t that be cool?).

Thankfully though, there’s less than a week to go before we come to know. Let us know what you expect to see on that date!

      That is already well known as Cyanogen dropped them, could be the unveiling of their new OS.

        This time you need to send them a blood sample to win a opportunity to get a invite for their flash sale!

          Blood sample with a hint of Ebola more likely

      Love this way of thinking!!! cheers! really laughed on this 😀
      My (real) guess is a new design with very good specs in a good price. This means thin bezels, keeping the good stuff that people liked in 1+1 and adding what was missing.
      I think that 1+1 listens their community so they are aware of the problems their phone had or what people missed and wanted in a future phone.

    My guess will be a redesigned OPO. Similar specs but a new body similar to what the console industry do with their slim consoles.

      It that would drop price it would be a BINGO! But I’m suspicious because new enclosure would mean new tooling and higher initial cost

      My guess is a 5′ OPO with a new design (I would love OIS but that’s not likely to come).

      That is Nothing to shake the tech industry.
      I think it is something with the battery.

    • Hwgeek

      I think that OPO will go with new powerfull Mediatek SOC with 480FPS slow motion camera, the price will be lower then snapdragon 810 based device(and cooler 🙂 ).

      I think they will come up like sharp aquos crystal

      Love the way OPO plays their game.
      Well they keep us one our toes and guessing – their marketing team knows their game.

    OnePlus teases too much and does too little , at this point i got way too bored of empty “threats”.
    Objectively there isn’t much they can do that would be exciting on the phone side. Sure a price drop to at least match the China prices but that would be something they should have done already. Having the Exynos 7420 is unlikely, or curved screen so nothing interesting can really be done now. Same hardware , microSD and very thin upper and lower bezels would be nice but not quite enough.
    A tab could work , if they had a 8.4 2560×1600 with MT8173 , 3GB RAM , microSD at 200$, it would be rather great but hard to say if it would sell well enough.
    An Android Wear watch at 99$ or less would be interesting but i doubt they have the competence to make something far better than anything on the market and it would be preferable if it wasn’t another dumbwatch clone.
    But this is clearly about phones and if they go 1440p and SD810 at 300$ it would be about as boring as it can get, sure some would be happy that the price is not up but price shouldn’t be up to begin with.
    If Google expands Cardboard in a big way at IO (May 28) and OnePlus has some Oculus like glasses at 99$ or less, it could be at least interesting or even great, depending on how much Google did.

    They will introduce a phone with 8gb RAM and 2 SOC.

      if it has support for dual monitors running windows 10 I will buy it.

    Without Cyanogen they have a thought road ahead of them.

    The industry needs solar powered phones, the new opo will be organic, it will be able to do photosynthesis.

      It makes sense because their new ROM is called Oxygen OS.

    My guess is that they are going to make a 64 bit phone without sensors to compete with the amazing Xiaolojiao!

    And there will be 300 yuans price cut for both 16 and 64gb in June on JD.com

    Maybe a 4.7 inch OPO? Hopefully? Even if it only has 2gb of RAM, it will still be great

    • Xalis
      May 26, 2015

      5.0 or git out.

  13. fangbanger
    May 26, 2015

    MY guess is it will be the OPO with a “shake” gesture, and some people will commit suicide for that.

      Actually most of busimess people care. When you grow up you will get it.

    Way too many alternatives in the market. Confusing times for the consumer. But hey, what the heck, consumers win.
