Well it looks like OnePlus has heard the internet’s complaints loud and clear. While the OnePlus 2 appears to be a pretty solid device it happens to be missing lots of standardized features. Most of these features users are pretty much dead set on having like NFC, wireless and quick charging, 2k displays and so on and so on. Don’t get me wrong, even with these obvious omissions the OnePlus 2 seems to be a pretty popular device. There are over 1.5 million people registered to receive an invite to buy the phone. It seems like all the missing features were a decision made solely to decrease the retail price of the phone to make it appealing to more people.
In an interview with USA Today OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei revealed that another handset will be coming before the end of the year.
There’s going to be a second phone this year, before the end of the year. Hopefully for Christmas.
It may or may not be (higher spec’d than the OnePlus 2). When I saw the prototype for that phone I was like ‘holy s— that’s going to be my daily driver’ but then when the OnePlus 2 production version came out it’s also super nice, so its really hard to decide now what to use.
It’s going to be amazing, but today I’m not going to talk about it.
It would be nice to see the company release a higher end device with every feature even if it cost $100 more! Then again the whole appeal of OnePlus has always been that they offer a budget friendly option as an alternative to the high priced flagships of other carriers. What are your thoughts? Does OnePlus need to release another device, or will this end up causing these phones to sit collecting dust in a warehouse?
