Prospective OnePlus One customers are still waiting to be able to get their hands on one of the most affordable high spec'd smartphones out there. However, the company behind the much talked about handset have revealed that a sequel is in the pipeline and will be arriving either during the second or third quarter of 2015.The OnePlus 2 will replace the current OnePlus One, while the company also suggested that it could launch a smaller sized smartphone too. This is quite ironic news considering OnePlus has not really rolled out the original One properly yet. Sure, the handset has been launched for some time, but it has been the subject of numerous delays and is still only available via an invite system where you purchase one only when OnePlus invites you to. Needless to say, the invites are hard to find. The company has come up with a pre-order system for the OnePlus One that will swing into action during October, giving users a chance to finally get their hands on the device on a mass scale. The pre-order model works by OnePlus making the device virtually to demand, to cut back on carrying lots of inventory. It is something the company should have done sooner as this roll out has been a mess and we are not exactly brimming with confidence that it would be any different with the OnePlus 2. However, if the company can nail the mix of high specs and extreme affordability of the first device then it will be onto another winner. That handset gets a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, 401ppi, 13MP camera, 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM, 3100 mAh battery. source: Reddit
