Internal OnePlus email speaks about OnePlus 3

oneplus 2 review

There are rumours that OnePlus will launch another phone at the end of the year, while it might be nice to hope for a OnePlus 3 a leaked internal email makes it clear that can’t be the case.

OnePlus will be launching another phone/device by the end of this year. It has been mentioned my OnePlus staff, and if we are lucky we might see the phone launch in time for Christmas. But don’t hold out for the OnePlus 3 yet.

Sources have leaked an internal email written by Pete Lau to OnePlus staff telling the company that the OnePlus 3 is about to go in to the research and development stage. This would suggest that the OnePlus 3 is only in the very early planning stages at this time.

The email goes on to say that the OnePlus 3 will really shock the industry, but they must also realise that they all have difficult challenges to face before the end of the year is here.

So whatever OnePlus do plan to launch next it won’t be the OnePlus 3, but then what will it be? Could it be a phone designed for fans of stylish lower powered devices? Or is the device not a phone at all?

    If you don’t release with front line tech you risk having shelves of unwanted product. The One Plus 2 already is wanting because it didn’t get the components right at sale date. The only other opportunity is selling at an amazing price with respected recent technology.

    For a moment I thought I’m in a wrong site.

      Likewise. I had to double check the link in my address bar to make sure I am in GizChina website.

      I think they applied a new template to the website that changed the UI.

        And noww, I don’t know how to view all the comments at each post. or they don’t use DISQUS anymore?

          I was experiencing the same problem too. I emailed to Andi and he advised me to clear my browser cache which I did and now I can see the comments once again.

          Maybe you should follow suit and clear your browser cache. That should solve your problem like mine.

            About 10 minutes ago, I can see all the comments again. Magic really exist I guess.

    How can I get an invite?

    I think it could be another type of devices /wearables since they have said OP2 is the flagship of 2016.

    Ugh. How many times do they have to say its a lower cost phone with a smaller screen. They’ve mentioned it many times. They said more than once its not a OP3. Considering how close the Find 7 and OPO are I bet you’ll find the next OnePlus device to be something like the OPPO R, if not identicle.
