We already knew that the OnePlus 2 would have a different price than the OnePlus One, which starts at $299. But just how different? Well, it looks like OnePlus wants to know how you feel about a price tag of around $400.
CEO Pete Lau took to Weibo to poll OnePlus fans about what the right price would be for OnePlus 2 if it were equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor. When someone said RMB 2500 (the equivalent of $402), Lau simply said he finds the price “reasonable.”
So far, nothing conclusive, right? Maybe Lau was simply voicing an offhanded opinion and we’re reading too much into it. Yes, except OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said the exact same thing on Twitter.
We think it’s safe to say that it’s not a coincidence when OnePlus’ two top men are – seemingly – casually pointing to the same price point for the OnePlus 2.
To wrap up, what do we know about OnePlus’ next device so far? We know it’s coming in Q3 (July-September); it will run Oxygen OS, instead of Cyanogen OS; it will be powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor; will probably cost around $400; it will be available through an invite system; and, it won’t be the only OnePlus phone coming out this year.
So, let’s give OnePlus some more insight, shall we? How do you feel about a potential $400 price tag for the OnePlus 2?
