OnePlus announcing ‘something’ on April 20th
OnePlus has certainly had its share of ups and downs in its relatively short history. While the company managed to garner a lot of attention for its “flagship killer” since its initial announcement last year, it has also suffered from several PR mishaps, complaints over its invite system, delays in updating to Lollipop, and the list goes on. Still, at the end of the day, the OnePlus One remains one of the most affordable high-end flagships out there and has managed to win over a number of fans, despite some hiccups along the way.
Looking forward to what’s next from OnePlus in 2015? If so, you’ll be excited to know that OnePlus has started sending out very plain looking invitations to an event on April 20th, alongside a message stating “From here on out, anything could happen.”
The most obvious assumption would be that this event will focus on the OnePlus Two, but recently OnePlus CEO Peter Lau noted the OnePlus Two is anticipated for third quarter of this year, so unless they’ve pushed things up, it seems less likely they’d be showing it off this early. That said, OnePlus has hinted on more than one occasion that a second phone will be debuting this year, one that may focus on style over flagship-level specs, so maybe they will be announcing it ahead of the OnePlus Two. Of course, it’s just as conceivable that they are entering a new product category, or doing something new with sofware. Or maybe ending the invite system for god? One can hope. After all, “anything could happen”.
We’ve reached out to OnePlus for further comment and will update this post if and when we hear back. What are you hoping to see from OnePlus at their upcoming announcement/event?
