OnePlus Media Event Going Down on June 1

OnePlus seems to love scheduling media events. Last time they scheduled a media event, it was to tell us that the OnePlus One was available to purchase without an invite…finally. OnePlus sent out a tweet earlier saying that it’s time to “Shake Up the Game.” I honestly have no idea what that means, but I assume it doesn’t mean the announcement of the OnePlus Two. We have heard rumors the Two is coming in Q3 2015, which is not on June 1. When the OnePlus Two does arrive, we expect a Snapdragon 810 and a price tag of about $400. Maybe OnePlus is going to pull an Apple Watch stunt, announce their new phone several months before it is even available, then make you beg for an invite!

I predict that we will be able to start forming a virtual line on June 1 to get an invite to buy the OnePlus Two at the end of July/beginning of August. In addition, I predict they will announce they are also lowering the price of the OnePlus One by $25-industry changing indeed, If I sound a bit salty toward OnePlus, I certainly am. Personally, I find their marketing hyperbole and PR policies a bit annoying, but I hope that they have an actual announcement on June 1-with actual substance. Anyone else have any idea what OnePlus will announce? Crazy predictions welcome in the comments!

I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones).
