OnePlus One, the dream phone of many heavy Android users who like to tinker with their devices. This handset comes with CyanogenMod out of the box and packs some amazing specifications while it is priced at only $299 (16GB version, $349 for the 64GB model). Sounds great, right? Well, not so much. Don’t get me wrong though, the device itself performs great, CM updates are regular and they fixed basically every bug there is, but OnePlus made so many mistakes when it comes to this device. First and foremost, only users who have so-called “invites” are able to purchase the device, a move which made a lot of people hate OnePlus as a company. That’s just one wrong move OnePlus made since they launched this handset, it would take ages to go through everything. That’s not even the main issue, it seems like OnePlus Two won’t sport CyanogenMod and the two companies aren’t exactly on peaceful terms at the moment, but we’ve covered that aspect already, we have some interesting new information for you now.
OnePlus’ co-founder, Carl Pei, confirmed yesterday that OnePlus Two will launch in Q2 or Q3 of 2015. Great, right? Well, it seems like it won’t come with CyanogenMod pre-installed, as I already mentioned, so that’s already a minus in my book. You know what’s interesting though? First listings for this handset have already started! OnePlus Two won’t launch for a couple more months at least and Coolicool.com already listed the device for $551.99, which is actually a crazy price considering the pricing of the current-gen OnePlus. According to the website, OnePlus Two will feature a 5.5-inch display, 32GB of internal storage and will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor. 16 and 5-megapixel cameras are also mentioned as well as 4G connectivity. 3300mAh battery is also listed on this website.
What to make of this? Well, it’s weird, especially considering the device won’t launch anytime soon. OnePlus Two is rumored to sport a smaller display, so I doubt we’ll see the same 5.5-inch panel on there. Either way, this listing just seems off and of course the device isn’t available, I’d take everything listed here with a pinch of salt if I were you.
