Global Price Cut on OnePlus One Hints of Nearing of Launch of OnePlus Two

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus will be announcing a global price cut for its existing flagship smartphone, the OnePlus One in the company’s June 1 event.

There have been rumors that the event will be the opportunity for the company to unveil its highly-anticipated flagship smartphone this year, the OnePlus Two.

But that was eventually quashed by OnePlus. Instead, the Chinese manufacturer, to sort of quench the excitement of its fans and users on the OnePlus Two, the company will announce a major price cut all over the world to its OnePlus One flagship smartphone.

The global price cut on the OnePlus One, regarded as the most exciting Android phone of 2014, is actually an indication that its successor is about to come out very soon.

Major price cut

Current retail price for the 16GB silk white variant of the OnePlus One is about $350 while the 64GB sandstone black edition is valued at $410. The global price cut by OnePlus would see the new retail prices of the smartphones at $300 and $360 respectively or a $50 reduction.

Considering the features of the OnePlus One which came out with groundbreaking specifications at an affordable price, the $50 price cut would surely be welcome to smartphone users on the hunt for a great but wallet-friendly handset, cites Trusted Reviews.

OnePlus One features a 5.5-inch 1080-pixel resolution Full HD display and is only 8.9 millimeters thick. It is powered by a Snapdragon 801 processor at 2.5GHz.

It also has a 3GB of RAM and a very generous 3100 mAH of battery. OnePlus One also boasts of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front snapper.

The Chinese smartphone maker assured its fans that OnePlus Two would have better features than its predecessor when it comes out in the second half of this year.

Two smartphones

Reports last month indicated that the Shenzen-based smartphone manufacturer is planning to unveil two new handsets in the second half of 2015.

Instead of merely releasing the OnePlus Two for its high-end market, it will also be launching the OnePlus One Lite to cater to the low-end or budget-conscious market.

The decision of OnePlus to go for both extremes of the market is a smart move because it has already engaged the interest and established a specific fan base in the high-end segment with its OnePlus One smartphone.
