The OnePlus 2 rumors are picking up steam, the device is apparently on track for a July unveiling according to a report from MyDrivers. The OnePlus One is already over a year old, so we certainly expect to see the sequel sooner than later. In addition to the predicted July unveiling, rumors point to the OnePlus 2 launching at a higher base price than last year’s model. The OnePlus One launched last year with a list price of $299 for the 16GB white version. Sources say that the current pricing for the OnePlus 2 is closer to 1,999 Yuan, which equates to about $322 USD. Most likely the phone will not launch at $322 or even $325 so we can expect a base price around $350 or so. The specs rumored for the phone include a 5.5-inch 1080P FHD display, 3 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 810 CPU on board, 13 MP shooter, and a 3,300 mAh battery size.
OnePlus has already began priming customers for the numerous contests and invite begging sessions they will hold for the OnePlus 2. It seems the initial launch of the phone will not be much different than last year’s model. Emails went out earlier this week to the company’s mailing list, detailing two contests (pictured above) to win a trip to see the launch of the OnePlus 2. Personally, I enjoy being able to buy the phone I want with my money and be done with it. As this launch pans out I’m going to consider if I really want to get one of these phones. If I get a quick invite-then great, if it’s a big hassle, I almost certainly won’t pick one up. Who else out there is with me? Is anyone looking to jump through all the hoops for an invite?
