It is no more a secret that OnePlus is working on a successor to its highly popular OnePlus One. In a new report published by Forbes has provided more insight about the naming of the device and also the launch timeline. The report suggests that the successor will be known as the “OnePlus 2,” and the launch will not be anytime soon as it is suffering from a few delays.
Although, there are no revelations regarding the reason behind the change of name but the reason behind the delay could be what is also plaguing the companies like Samsung. The reason is none other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. According to the report, OnePlus is said to be struggling with “manufacturing challenges with the Snapdragon 810.” Samsung is also using the same chipset for its upcoming Galaxy S6 and it is also struggling with overheating issues. However, a recent report also claims that Qualcomm has offered Samsung an updated Snapdragon 810 chipset that has omitted the heating issues.
According to the leaks, the OnePlus One successor might come with a 5.5-inch display, 32GB internal storage, 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,300mAh battery.
Carl Pei, Director of OnePlus Global, had recently announced that once the OnePlus 2 is manufactured, “India will be one of the first countries” to get the device. Along with the OnePlus 2, the company is reportedly working on a “design-focused smartphone,” which might be launched this year itself.
