one of the hottest Android phones of the year
OnePlus, the Chinese tech startup that created the super hard-to-find OnePlus One, is already planning to launch a new phone next year. The company's global director Carl Pei confirmed as much in a thread on Reddit in September, but now we've learned a few small details about the phone, rumored to be called the OnePlus 2. OnePlus released a Bamboo-style back cover for its One phone, but discontinued it in September due to manufacturing issues. OnePlus sold a few of those covers earlier this month, but since they were so limited you need an invitation to buy them. OnePlus launched its One smartphone in April, and it turned out to be one of the most highly regarded phones of 2014 by both reviewers and consumers. There are two main reasons everyone's been talking about the OnePlus One: it's super cheap and extremely hard to find. The OnePlus One costs $350 off contract, which is a pretty unheard of price. With its OnePlus One, the company was able to include some of the best components, an attractive design, and a bright, sharp screen for about half the price of your standard Android flagship.
