In spite of being a very young company, OnePlus is one of the companies who have quickly developed a name for themselves. Part of the reason for their fame is due to the release of their flagship device, the OnePlus One. The One was originally touted as a 'flagship killer' and in many respects, it was. Offering the best of specs for the time but at a significant reduced cost compared to the major smartphone manufacturers. As such, the One realized an increasing demand worldwide for the device which still seems to be holding strong.
However, the other reason they have become so well known is due to their use of social media and marketing. Over the last year, OnePlus have been very effective in spreading the word about their company and creating hype for their products. A prime example of this came a few weeks back, when the android world were highly speculating upon a new product that OnePlus were planning to release. The build up was massive and many thought the follow-up device, the OnePlus 2 was set to be released. However, it seems when the 'new product' did arrive there was an element of disappointment with the unveiling of the slightly underwhelming OnePlus DR-1.
Well, for those who enjoy the OnePlus rumors and possibilities, it looks like this speculation is about to go into overdrive again. It was reported a couple of days ago that the company are planning to release their other OS, HydrogenOS on May 28th. However, new images which have appeared on Weibo in the last few hours are now starting to suggest that the company will also be releasing a new product at the same event. The images are not that revealing and do not provide any firm details on what to expect. That said, they do seem to show what appears to be the packaging for a product which is not currently available. While the immediate speculation will be for the OnePlus 2, the box looks far too thin to be the next OnePlus smartphone. As such, another accessory does look to be the most obvious best guess. Either way, with May 28th not too far away, it should be too long before all is revealed, including a possible new OnePlus product.
