TheOnePlus 2 will come straight to your face on July 27.
The viewer design is based on Google Cardboard, an open-source blueprint for a cheap, virtual reality viewer that works with a smartphone.
Just like the LG G4, and last year's OnePlus One, the company is leaking out the details of its new phone one announcement at a time. First up was news the OnePlus 2 will have the Snapdragon 810, with sufficient tweaks to mitigate any overheating issues. OnePlus also says the device will have a USB Type C port, which is gaining traction as the new standard for charging and data transfer.
The story behind the story: The OnePlus One was a decent phone, especially for the price, but it had its share of issues with bugs, terrible marketing missteps, and a very frustrating invite-only sales system. For the OnePlus 2 to gain traction, its parent company will need to show it’s grown up a bit. Marketing stunts are well and good (except when they objectify women), but buyers want some trust that if they run into problems with the phone, a reputable company will be there to support them.
