Pete Lau says the OnePlus 2 will be priced under $450

OnePlus’s CEO Pete Lau has recently stated that the upcoming OnePlus 2 will not be priced anywhere above $450.

The exact quote from Pete was “I can promise that the OnePlus 2 will be priced under 450 USD”. We’d hazard a guess that this means the price of the device will be $449, but anything’s possible for now.

This means that the OnePlus 2 will also be substantially more expensive that it’s predecessor and will go into direct competition with higher end brands like Huawei, ZTE and Meizu. Despite having its specs teased many times, the OnePlus 2 is still one of the most anticipated Chinese smartphone launches of the year with fans from all around the world eagerly awaiting the release of the flagship device.
