Last week OnePlus got a lot of people excited when it sent out a teaser which made it seem as if the company is going to unveil the OnePlus 2 on June 1st. Official word has now come in from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei who confirms that the OnePlus 2 will actually be unveiled in Q3, 2015 and that the announcement lined up for tomorrow is actually for something else.
We have seen OnePlus work the hype machine like no other company and the teaser just might have been another attempt on its part to get some headlines in last week’s news cycle.
The teaser that OnePlus sent out last week showed a OnePlus One being partially erased and being readied to be drawn again by a pencil placed close by. The teaser can trick someone into thinking that the announcement is going to be about the successor.
However, now we know that this is not the case. OnePlus 2 is not going to arrive before Q3, 2015 and this has been made official by co-founder Carl Pei himself.
So what’s the June 1st announcement all about? It turns out the company might announce price cuts for the OnePlus One tomorrow, for both the 64GB Standstone Black model and the 16GB Silk White model. The new prices will reportedly be $298 and $248 respectively.
