OnePlus reveals more on OnePlus Two

As well as revealing that it’s special project would be a drone, OnePlus recently spilled some more information on the OnePlus 2.

The follow-up to the well-received – if difficult to buy – OnePlus One will arrive in Q3 of this year, with a core group of fans holding out to see if the plucky Chinese manufacturer can give Samsung and HTC another bloody nose.

Yesterday, the company’s David Sanmartin and Carl Pei took to Reddit for an AMA on the company’s plans. We’ve already covered the intriguing drone reveal, but plenty was also said about the OnePlus Two.

Though we still don’t know many specifics about specs, the OnePlus team did say that it would be a “different device with a different price,” perhaps suggesting that it will receive a price bump (the OnePlus One costs just £229).

When asked if the OnePlus Two would come packing the Snapdragon 810, OnePlus appeared to evade the answer because it didn’t want to upset any chip manufacturers. However, it then appeared to rule out MediaTek, which is becoming an increasingly popular choice in affordable Android phones.

The company also ruled out a number of specs, some of which will no doubt annoy hardcore Android fans. There’ll be no Galaxy S6 Edge-like wireless charging because it’s “too slow and inefficient in its current form.”

The team also confirmed that the OnePlus Two would have neither a removable battery nor a microSD slot. That may stick true to the OnePlus One’s design, but it won’t please many hardcore Android fans.
