Oneplus CEO Carl Pei has shot down rumors swirling around that its company could unveil the Oneplus X2 in the course of the year. The company’s top executive via his twitter handle labeled the news making the rounds as “fake,”. Mr. Pei actually simply wrote Nope on a GSM Arena’s article which talks about plans for the OnePlus X2.
