If you’ve been contemplating purchasing a new smartphone from OnePlus, now just might be the best time to scoop one up for a relatively low price ahead of next month’s debut of the OnePlus 3. OnePlus announced today that it is dropping the price of the current OnePlus 2 flagship from $349 down to a low $299. If you recall, the OnePlus 2 previously had its price reduced to $349 in February just in time for Valentine’s Day. It originally debuted in late July 2015 with a price tag of $389. The OnePlus 2 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilization a 5MP front-facing camera and dual...

OnePlus doesn't always get things right—some would argue that the company often gets things wrong, at least when it comes to smooth product launches—but it's learning from its mistakes and continues to give fans reasons to root for the company. The latest example is a newly announced price cut for its popular OnePlus 2 handset. Effectively immediately (and just in time for Valentine's Day, if you're looking for a geek gift idea), the OnePlus 2 is $349, down $40 from its $389 launch price. The new low price is a permanent one, not a temporary sale or promotion. And don't worry if you just bought a OnePlus 2 at its old price—anyone who purchased the OnePlus 2 within the last 15 days will receive... Read more...
The OnePlus 2 was introduced back in July, but like its predecessor, it was only available through OnePlus’ dreaded invite system. OnePlus promised to fix its inventory issues and invite system with the launch of the OnePlus 2, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen. "We told our users it would be 30-50x easier to get invites, and they needn’t worry. Yet, we only began shipping in meaningful quantities this week, nearly a month after our initial targeted shipping date," said OnePlus in September. "You can talk all you want, but in the end, flawless execution speaks much louder than unfulfilled promises." Luckily for those that would like to get their hands on a OnePlus 2, inventory levels have... Read more...
One way or another, OnePlus is going to make headlines. Unfortunately for fans of company's phones, the headlines aren't always for positive things, which in this case it's in the news for screwing up its launch of the OnePlus 2. Perhaps the OnePlus 3, should there be one, will be a different story. To the company's credit, it isn't hiding from the fact that potential buyers once again had trouble purchasing the OnePlus 2, just as they did with the original OnePlus One. Instead, OnePlus readily acknowledges that it messed up a second time and issued another apologetic blog post. "We messed up the launch of the OnePlus 2. Well, we messed up the launch of the OnePlus One as well," OnePlus stated.... Read more...
The more things change, the more they stay the same. That's how the saying goes and it seems to be one that OnePlus lives by. To recap, OnePlus announced in mid-July that it was revamping its invite system so it would be easier for people to buy a OnePlus 2, the recently released "flagship killer" that runs $329 for the 16GB model and $389 for the 64GB model. An invite system was supposed to solve the problem of demand exceeding supply. Well, that and offering up a lot more units than the company did with the original OnePlus One. The company's co-founder- Carl Pei, promised to build anywhere from 30 times to 50 times more OnePlus 2 handsets at launch than the OnePlus One during its debut, but... Read more...
OnePlus sure does know how to hype a product; just look no further than the recently unveiled OnePlus 2. After stringing us along for months, dropping little nuggets of information on the smartphone (including a curveball on pricing to set our expectations low), the final product definitely knocked our socks off. And according to this latest tweet from OnePlus, we weren’t the only ones that were impressed with the smartphone — it has recorded over two million pre-orders for the smartphone a week after its official unveil, which is a lofty number for a company of this size. While two million units is a drop in the bucket for a company like Apple or Samsung, hitting this mark is a huge accomplishment... Read more...
The OnePlus 2 flagship smartphone was hyped for months ahead of its official unveil last week. OnePlus leaked major details about the device including its processor (a new revision of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810) and even its rare (for a smartphone) reversible USB-C connector. But apparently OnePlus has even more in store for consumers: its fast approaching, third smartphone. That new smartphone will be out before the end of year, with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei remarking that he hopes to see the device arrive in time for Christmas. Pei is being rather tightlipped about specifications for the device, but he just couldn’t temper his enthusiasm for the smartphone in a recent interview. OnePlus... Read more...
Given how many details OnePlus has leaked over the past few months regarding its next generation flagship smartphone, there wasn’t much left to the imagination for prospective buyers other than the price. And that was even hinted at earlier this month, when OnePlus CEO Pete Lau remarked that the device would be priced below $450. The OnePlus 2 was officially unveiled this evening and now that the drapes have been removed, we can now tell you that the smartphone will start at an impressively low $329 unlocked and contract-free (the original OnePlus One debuted at $299 and recently dropped to an even more palatable $249). The $329 price of entry nets you a 5.5-inch 1080p display (sorry, QHD isn’t... Read more...
Anticipation is running high for the OnePlus 2, the forthcoming successor to the popular OnePlus One, and that's exactly by design. One thing the OnePlus team is really good at is building up excitement, which it accomplishes through periodic updates that offer just enough information to get fans talking again. However, it's Chinese telecom regulator TENAA that gets credit for the latest leak.The Chinese-language website posted several photos of the OnePlus 2, along with a bit information on the specs, some of which had already been previously confirmed. Given that the pictures are appearing fairly close to launch, we have to wonder if this was a controlled leak, a marketing tactic that Apple... Read more...
The OnePlus team said it learned from its mistakes with the launch of its original OnePlus One handset and promises a smoother rollout for the forthcoming OnePlus 2. This time around there will be more units available -- a lot more. According to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, there will be anywhere from 30 times to 50 times more OnePlus 2 handsets at launch than there were OnePlus One phones when it first debuted. Pei also detailed changes to the invite system. Many people will be glad to hear that, as Pei readily acknowledges that some people felt last year's system was too difficult and too time consuming. Some even thought it was a "big marketing stunt" to drum up interest. To avoid a similar... Read more...
Little by little, we're learning new official details about the OnePlus 2, the successor to the popular OnePlus One. By way of a Twitter post this week, the OnePlus team latest reveal is that the OnePlus 2 will feature 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM "so you have more power to do everything you love," whether it's playing games or simply multitasking. It's worth pointing out that the OnePlus team previously confirmed the OnePlus 2 will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 System-on-Chip (SoC). This is important because it's a 64-bit part that can take full advantage of 4GB of RAM, whereas 32-bit chips can really only effectively utilize up to 3GB without any special workarounds. Why LPDDR4? OnePlus says it was... Read more...
Give the OnePlus team credit, it knows how to hype a product launch and create buzz. It's an art that companies like Apple have mastered, and while OnePlus is not on the same playing field as Tim Cook and company, both are really good at getting media attention. That said, one of the big reasons the OnePlus is so popular is because of the value proposition. Will that be the case when the OnePlus Two comes out? There have been rumors that the OnePlus Two would top the $500 mark, though don't believe it. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau put to rest exaggerated price claims by promising on his company's Google+ page that the OnePlus Two will sell for less than $450. And then he said something...odd. "Honestly,...

Little by little, we're learning new things about the OnePlus 2, the successor to the popular OnePlus One that was originally supposed to launch on June 1. We still don't know when the new flagship model will be available to purchase, but in the meantime, fans of the OnePlus series can get their first glimpse of the phone, or so we think. A pair of blurry photos showing both sides of the supposed OnePlus 2 were sent to PhoneArena. The site isn't super confident in their legitimacy, noting that they're "taking these images with the proverbial grain of salt." However, the blurry shots do go in line with previous rumors that the new model will resemble its predecessor. You can make out what looks... Read more...
Not a week after revealing that the upcoming OnePlus 2 smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 system-on-chip (SoC), OnePlus announced that the phone will also boast a Type C USB port. With the OnePlus 2 widely expected to be released in Q3 of this year, we’re hoping that the recent announcements signal that the OnePlus 2 is about ready to launch. “The OnePlus 2 will be the first global flagship smartphone sporting this breakthrough technology,” a company spokesperson said in a blog post. “Its cable channels the same beautiful design of the OnePlus One’s that our users love, but this time with the added convenience and comfort of a reversible plug.” What makes reversible...
