Well look what we have here. It looks like some of the rumors and leaks were less than true, as we all were led to believe that OnePlus is pushing its flagship launch to Q3, maybe Q4 of this year. But here we are today, and an invite is clearly out from the Shenzhen-based outfit for what seems to be a launch event tomorrow. Will the OnePlus 2 finally be unveiled, together with a rumored second phone device?

Here’s what the rumor mill is working out – OnePlus will indeed be uncovering the OnePlus 2 tomorrow, its second flagship after a solid performance for its first gadget, the OnePlus One. If you remember, the gadget was received warmly by users (who actually got their hands on the One) and generated good reviews because of its robust build and the tweak-able Cyanogen software.


Tomorrow, it seems it will finally be time to see the OnePlus 2, most likely a flagship level device that will hold its own in terms of specs against the flagships that have been launched before it – and with a lower price to boot. There are rumors of a second phone, although the naming convention confuses us a bit. It will be a phone with slightly lower specs than the OnePlus 2, but better specs than the OnePlus One – but it will be called the OnePlus One Lite. Insert head scratch here.


If the OnePlus continues the trend that made its predecessor one of the devices of 2014 – namely the string specs and the lower price – it might just make a dent in the pockets of the bigger companies. BUT, only if they make it more available to the masses this time. We were not fans of OnePlus’s “invite only” system. Sadly, we are hearing rumors from China that the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus One Lite will still go with the invite system. We hope you learn your lessons from last year, OnePlus.

  1. I don’t think this rumor contradicts the Q3-Q4 release. They’ll announce them today, the first 100 people will see them in July, and they won’t be readily available until they are yesteryear’s news. Such a terrible business model…Count me among those that would have bought a One if I could have gotten my hands on it in the first three months.

    • And WHY is it so bad to have a device that’s not TOP SPECS right at that moment in time.. I’ve had my oneplus one since DEC. I’ve also had a note 3, s5, s4, z2, nexus 5, nexus 4, and out all my device history.. I’ve been the most happy with my OPO because it was cheaper then the rest, in certain categories even better then some of the rest I’ve had, but what it falls on it makes up for in the fact that I didn’t have to PAY to unlock it, I didn’t have to get a certain device for my provider.. Wind Mobile’s AWS is a pain..

  2. I’d buy one too but not if it take 10 plus months for it to be realese to us again as it’s outdated by then just like the last one the invite system such then your supposed to ask for an invite to be insulted by those that do have the three invites to give away and told to stop begging when there’s no other option but to ask for a invite it’s just wrong if you have the cash to buy one but told to wait for nearly a year by then you might as well buy an oem phone

      • Benny.. I dunno where your coming off that the camera sucks bro, maybe the camera apk sucks.. But not the hardware, hardware only does what software tells it to.. I replaced my OPO camera apk with the OPPO find camera apk and camera is WAY better now… Why hate on a company’s device that is substantially cheaper then any big brand device??

      • It’s was the software apk I was calling is bad as build quality was a decent camera and sensor installed hard ware wise it’s good stuff the whole phone is good specs software isn’t the best as with lots of droids out there build decent phones but less quality on software . but it should work work out of the box not have to then search for and install secondary camera apps to get the best out of it this is where the some of other OEM phones do the best on cameras software .like the old s4 decent phone and camera and rest of tw sucks also but this is where the custom roms come in as can keep the decent parts and speed up and cut bloat ware out whist still keeping near stock software experience that just works well

  3. Too bad this phone is going to be even more massive than the last one. All phones are going this way of getting larger with each iteration. Sometimes, bigger is not better. It’s impractical.

  4. I dig that they are saving money, and helping build their business plan with minimal loss and lowered risk by doing it invite only, but it kills it for me. The original Oneplus I tried relentlessly to get an invite. I sat through a couple of solid roll outs and new flagships hoping to get one, or even win one with nothing coming this way until it was far too late.

    With that being said, I am out. I am sure it will be a great device and live up to its expectations, but I am not going to put an eyebrow up until it is something that is easier to obtain. I would have rather been told that if i pay now, my phone will be placed into the production queues and wait for it to be built and delivered, than hope that i can get an invite, and continue to do so, until it is too late.

    Sorry guys, but with the invites, waiting, and headaches, the want for this is gone. I’d rather know that I can get the device while i want it, and not wait and be disappointed.
