OnePlus 2 tipped for July launch after June 1 no-show

The eagerly-awaited successor to the OnePlus One will land in July, according to a new report from China.

The OnePlus 2’s official launch date has been the subject to plenty of speculation, with previous rumours hinting at a 1 June unveiling, which obviously didn’t happen.

Carl Pei, the CEO of OnePlus, recently said that the company’s second handset will see the light of day during Q3, so a July unveiling certainly appears to fit the bill, with Q3 running from July to August.

The smartphone is expected to follow the same general brief as its predecessor: high-end specs at an affordable price.

Like the HTC One M9, the OnePlus 2 is said to be landing with a Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM in tow. It’s also expected to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 1,920 x 1,080 display, though the size of its screen is still an area of doubt.

The original One had a 5.5-inch panel, though we’re not sure that going much bigger would be a good move. The Huawei P8 Max has a ludicrously large 6.8-inch display, which we found difficult to get our fingers around.

Current murmurings hint at a CNY 1,999 (£207) price. However, Pei’s declaration that a Snapdragon 810-powered mobile should ‘reasonably’ command a fee of CNY 2,499 (£258) suggests it will cost a little more.
