What on earth is OnePlus up to now?

OnePlus

UPDATE: The mystery has been all but solved, as we've unearthed the following picture from OnePlus' Chinese site, which features a bag that seemingly matches the bag in the image sent out by the firm today:

Bit of an anti-climax, but hey, if you've been waiting for what looks like a OnePlus pencil case, you just hit the jackpot.

Original story continues below:

OnePlus impressed with its latest OnePlus 3 handset, taking on the big boys and offering top specs at a very reasonable price.

But it remains to be seen what's next for the Chinese company, and a cryptic image posted to its social media channels this weekend doesn't do much to solve the mystery.

The image, accompanied by the text "What’s in store for #OnePlus? #comingsoon" appeared on Twitter and Facebook and has been edited to make it difficult, if not impossible, to tell what the company's got up its sleeve.

However, we've done a quick Photoshop job on the shot to rearrange the various parts into their proper places.

Unfortunately, it hasn't revealed much beyond what appears to be some sort of OnePlus-branded bag on the right of the photo.

Still, it could be a case for an actual new technology product, which is yet to be revealed – though it doesn't look like we're getting a new phone judging by the size of the thing.

It could also be some sort of smart back pack or other tech-enhanced clothing item, but again, the photo, even when rearranged doesn't give away much – unless OnePlus is planning to release a new pair of high heels.

Far more likely is that OnePlus is finally branching out its lifestyle product business to international markets.

The firm already sells these products, including bags, in China through its online store, so it seems likely this could simply be a teaser for such products coming to new countries.

OP already said in their latest AMA that they are releasing a backpack soon. No mystery here.

May be a leap into the 'laptop' segment just like its rival xiaomi!?.. Though seems far fetched but i truly want them to build one with high specs and low price

Unless they replace the gimmicky alert slider with a functional microSD slot, it's not much of a flagship unless you want to micromanage your storage

Granted, the 64 gb base model barely forgives it but didn't remove the fact that the alert slider is a stupid gimmick that needs to die in the next model

Please keep in mind this is 110% your opinion, i think the alert slider is great and personally 64GB is enough for me. If you need more storage maybe its best to look for a phone that supports an SD Card
