It hasn’t been long since OnePlus launched its latest flagship smartphone and while people put their names on a list to receive an invite to actually purchase the handset, the company recently confirmed that it will be launching another device later this year. While it hasn’t provided much information about the upcoming device word on the street is that the next handset from OnePlus is going to be a solid mid-range smartphone that’s primarily geared towards emerging markets.
This is a strategy that’s employed by many device manufacturers, they offer mid-range devices with good specifications at very competitive prices in markets where purchase power for high-end devices may be limited.
Since OnePlus already has a reputation of offering handsets that provide good hardware at a very reasonable price the company can work off of that with a solid mid-range device to further expand its foothold in emerging markets.
According to a report out of China the next device from OnePlus would feature a 5 inch display with specs similar to those of the OnePlus One and will come with a price tag between $250 – $300.
OnePlus isn’t saying much about this handset right now so we’ll have to wait for a while before the company offers some information, given that it has a habit of releasing information about new devices in pieces, it’s likely that we’ll be hearing more about this in the near future.
