Published by on Oct 1st, 2014, No Comments


While having the OnePlus One was a pipedream in South Africa, we still found it intriguing. It is a very affordable device with top of the line specs, and it had the craziest marketing push ever.

However, we now hear news that OnePlus is already looking on to what’s next for itself, talking about plans for a OnePlus Two. In a new Reddit AMA, a couple OnePlus employees have been sharing a few details about what the company has in mind for its follow-up. (more…)
