Despite the dubious marketing tactics and the initial difficulty of trying to secure a handset for yourself, the OnePlus One has been met with high praise, which has us wondering if the company will be able to maintain that momentum with their next-gen flagship handset, the OnePlus Two.
As it turns out not only does OnePlus think they will surprise people with the OnePlus Two, but the company’s CEO believes that the handset will prove to be as influential as some of the bigger names out there. Speaking during a Reddit AMA, Carl Pei stated that in 2015, we can expect four influential smartphones – the Samsung Galaxy S6, the iPhone 6s, the HTC One M9, and the OnePlus Two.
That’s pretty confident of the company especially when you consider that the OnePlus One is the only handset that they have released so far, but like we said the initial reaction to the handset has been largely positive, that and the fact that it came with CyanogenMod preinstalled on it no doubt helped with its popularity as well.
However with Oxyen OS expected to take the place of CyanogenMod, we have to wonder if users will react favorably to the new operating system, but we suppose we will only find out in the later part of the year as the OnePlus Two has been pegged for a release sometime in September.
