OnePlus is a new smartphone company that emerged on the scene last year with the OnePlus One. This smartphone was dubbed by the company as the “flagship killer,” even though purchasing one required jumping through a lot of hoops, OnePlus has managed to create a lot of hype for its next product. OnePlus 2 was first expected to be released in Q2, 2015 but a new report suggests that this smartphone might not be out until the third quarter.

The reason cited for this delay has already been heard before. Multiple reports claim that Qualcomm is facing overheating issues with the Snapdragon 810 which could also cause delays for high-end devices like Galaxy S6 and the LG G4. Qualcomm did deny once that the issues won’t have any effect on release timelines.

If rumored OnePlus 2 specifications are to be believed this smartphone is going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, along with 4GB RAM and a 5.5-inch Quad HD display.

These specifications would put it right up there with other high-end devices but if today’s report is any indication this device won’t be out until the third quarter of this year.

OnePlus has already said that its next smartphone is going to “surprise people,” without elaborating exactly why its claiming that. The company hasn’t also said whether customers would have to go through the invite process once again just to purchase a unit or whether OnePlus is finally going to improve its ordering system.
