Just last week, OnePlus announced that their launch event for their second generation flagship will take place on July 27th. And they will be doing it in virtual reality. That's rather unique, seeing as no other product launches have done them in virtual reality before. It'll be great for those that aren't able to make the trip. OnePlus has already announced that the OnePlus 2 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 inside, it's supposedly the v2.1 of the processor (v1 was sampled to OEMs, and v2 is what is in the LG G Flex 2 and HTC One M9. The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro and Sony Xperia Z3+/Z4/Z4v all have the v2.1 version of the Snapdragon 810). The company also announced that they are going to set the max speed f the processor to 1.8GHz, which is quite slow considering the Snapdragon 810 can hit 2.5GHz max.
The image that you see below, surfaced on Weibo. It's a picture, supposedly, of the OnePlus Two and has a pencil sketch filter over top of it. There's not much we can tell from this image, however you do see the USB port, which does in fact look like USB Type-C, which OnePlus also confirmed the new flagship would be sporting. Otherwise, it looks quite similar to the OnePlus One. That's not a bad thing at all, as the OnePlus One was a great looking smartphone. Others are reporting it looks to have a 5.5-inch display. It's pretty tough to see from this picture, but I'd say something around 5.5-5.7 inch display, depending on how big the bezels are on the device.
We already know that OnePlus is planning to use the invite system for the OnePlus Two. When we spoke with Carl Pei back in January, he confirmed as much. The new flagship is pegged for a July 27th announcement, but no word on when it will actually be released, hopefully it's not much longer after that. We are definitely excited to see what OnePlus has in store for us this time around with the OnePlus Two. However, we do know it won't be priced as aggressively as the first device. So be prepared to fork over more cash.
