OnePlus Two Specs

There were several fantastic Android smartphones that debuted in 2014. What started as a very boring year for smartphone fans ended up packing much more action than we expected, thanks in large part to a handful of surprising Motorola handsets and a few other gems that launched in the second half. But there was one smartphone that most people in America have probably never heard of that ended up being the most exciting Android handset of the year for serious Android fans, and its sequel may have just been detailed for the first time.

We typically pass over reports that cite just one single source in passing info along, but Business Insider seems confident that its unnamed source means business, and the site recently posted some details that supposedly reveal early info on the OnePlus One’s sequel.

OnePlus Two? OnePlus One 2?

We still don’t know what the phone will be called, but this new report claims it will be even more customizable than the first-generation model. OnePlus had trouble launching all of the cool case backs it promised early on, but rumor now has it that the second-generation version will deliver where the first version fell short.

Where pricing is concerned, we might be looking at a slightly higher price tag than the OnePlus One, which starts at $299. Business Insider says the phone will still be cheaper than most popular premium smartphones off contract, but says it will “cost less than $500,” which doesn’t bode well for maintaining the current $299 price point.

Finally, the blog’s source says there will be some “surprises in store when it comes to hardware.” This makes it sound like a OnePlus executive is planting the story, which makes the details contained within the report even more promising, but no specifics on those “surprises” were offered.

The second-generation version of the OnePlus One will likely debut sometime in the first half of 2015.
