OnePlus was one of the surprise victors in last year’s smartphone war, and even though the new company is still struggling to meet the massive demand for its OnePlus One, it’s already working on the smartphone’s successor. Referred to as the OnePlus Two by most, this new device is expected to carry a Snapdragon 810 and 4GB of RAM which, if the company manages to keep the device as affordable as the OnePlus One, would make it a serious contender in 2015.
OnePlus is still trying to find a way to push units of their first flagship out on a daily basis, but that doesn’t mean they’re already thinking about the follow-up. The OnePlus Two, as we’ll call it for now, should hopefully deliver as much value as the original did, but in which ways? Well, the latest rumor tells us we can at least expect a top notch display. GizChina reports that OnePlus has ordered a bevvy of 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) displays for use in their next flagship. To compare, the OnePlus One utilizes the same sized display, but with just 1080p resolution. Many were hoping OnePlus would look to use a smaller display in the sequel to keep the physical device size down. When asked about it in a recent Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, a OnePlus executive said that they were “thinking about it,” but that didn’t really mean much — you always think about every possibility when building a delicate product.
