If you have been keeping up with the all the OnePlus news then news of a second OnePlus device for the year won’t come as much of a surprise, but now we have a touch launch date.
Earlier in the year the OnePlus team had mentioned that we should expect an additional phone launch this year to accompany the OnePlus 2. As you would expect from the controversial company, details of the third OnePlus device (second for the year) are currently unknown except for the fact this device might not necessarily be a flagship and we could hopefully see the phone at the end of the year.
In an interview with USA Today, Carl Pei, mentioned that a launch date before Christmas could very well be a possibility.
So if the next OnePlus we see isn’t a flagship what will it be? Some fans have suggested that OnePlus might launch a low-end phone to compete with the Xiaomi Redmi 2A and Xiaomi m2. Another suggestion (and one we believe to be more accurate) is a phone designed to be a premium product using high-end materials and design, but not top of the range hardware (think something along the lines of the Oppo R7 and Vivo X5 Pro).
Are you excited about the next OnePlus device? Do you think it will be a low-end phone or mid-range premium handset?
