OnePlus 2 will not launch tomorrow, company confirms
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has revealed that the eagerly awaited OnePlus 2 will not be formally unveiled at tomorrow’s ‘Time for Change’ event.

Despite Q3 covering the period from July 1 to September 30, the OnePlus co-founder failed to further narrow down the handset’s launch window.
One thing Pei did reveal about the company’s next phone, however, was its official name.
Moving to a new digit-based naming convention, the ‘One’ replacement will be formally known as the OnePlus 2 – not the OnePlus Two.

It has been suggested that $50 will be skimmed from the asking price of both the 16GB and 32GB handsets.
