Earlier in the week it was rumored that OnePlus, a nascent smartphone company, is working on a successor for its first smartphone. The OnePlus One hasn’t been fully released in the market right now so rumors about a successor presumably destined for release later this year didn’t really make sense. Fortunately the company itself took notice of the rumors and released a statement setting the record straight once and for all.
In a statement provided to AndroidPolice the company pretty much issued a straightforward denial, saying that “We’re just working on the OnePlus One for 2014. Thanks!”
Now obviously this don’t mean that there won’t be a OnePlus One successor down the road but it certainly doesn’t look like the company has plans of launching one this year, as was rumored earlier this week.
Even Cyanogen released a statement against these rumors, this company handles the software side of things on the OnePlus One. It said that Cyanogen is currently focusing its efforts on continued support of the OnePlus One and that “there is no ‘lettuce’ device.”
It merits mention here that the rumor’s source, @evleaks, pulled it soon after confirmations came from these two companies. A couple of weeks back he also posted a rumors about a OnePlus tablet but that was also shot down by the company.
