OnePlus’s CEO Pete Lau has been discussing OnePlus Two with fans on the Chinese social network  Weibo. OnePlus Two is the successor to OnePlus One and would be the company’s next flagship.

Pete Lau posted on Weibo that OnePlus 2 will carry Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor when it launches in the third quarter of 2015. Although the 810 chip will become stale by then, it would be economical as its prices are expected to drop later and the phone would get a powerful chipset for a much lower price.

Lau also discussed about the pricing of OnePlus Two. He asked his followers on Weibo, “If OnePlus Two comes with Snapdragon 810, what do you think will be the price?”. He got several replies, and when someone said 2499 Yuan (about $403), Lau said that it was “reasonable”.

Interestingly, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei asked the same question on Twitter and followers suggested various prices. Carl Pei wrote “Sounds reasonable” to the price of “400$”.

 

This doesn’t seem to be a coincidence and the price of OnePlus Two will probably be around $400.

Apart from Snapdragon 810, OnePlus Two is rumored to come with a 5.5-inch QHD display, 4GB of RAM and a 3,300mAh battery. The phone will be offered through an invitation system. OnePlus is also working on another affordable smartphone in the OnePlus family which will also be released this year.
