OnePlus’s One sequel set for mid-2015 launch

OnePlus Two Release Window

There weren’t many smartphones that received even a fraction of the buzz that the iPhone 6 did this year, but the OnePlus One somehow managed to find its way on to that list. With an aggressive marketing campaign and an air of mystery surrounding it, the CyanogenMod handset piqued the interest of the Android community right away, but nine months later, the phone still isn’t available to the public. Nevertheless, OnePlus doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon.

In a recent Reddit AMAA (Ask Me Almost Anything), Carl and David of OnePlus answered a series of questions about the future of their company and their upcoming products. When asked about whether or not Android L would make its way on to the next OnePlus device, Carl was very direct:

“OnePlus 2 should be out in Q2 or Q3 of 2015. By that time, I’d think Android L would be standard. :)”

He then responded to the claim that many users found the form factor of the phone to be too large:

“We’ve seen a lot of people asking for a smaller device, and want to let everyone know that we hear you. We’re thinking about it.”

The OnePlus One isn’t commercially available quite yet, but OnePlus will be launching its preorder program by the end of October in order to begin selling phones at a more consistent rate than the invite program is capable of allowing.

Check the rest of the Reddit thread for information on upcoming OTA updates, improvements to the company’s customer service and much, much more.
