OnePlus managed to disrupt the landscape of flagship smartphones last year (at least in the places where you could buy it) by offering a smartphone that had flagship-level specs at a lower price than most. While it wasn’t perfect (the invite system sucked terribly) the OnePlus One was a hit and have built a loyal user base for the company to build on.
Fast forward to this year, and the company’s follow-up device, the OnePlus Two, is hotly anticipated by fans of affordable flagships. While rumors of the device’s pricing has been floating around for a while, OnePlus CEO said on the company’s Google+ page that their next flagship won’t cost more than $450 (around 20K).
The new phone is pegged to be running an improved version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM as well as a fingerprint sensor that the company says is “twice as fast as any iPhone”, as well as USB type-C.
The phone is set to be revealed later this month.
