Furthermore, the sources said that the next OnePlus phone will likely still be cheaper than other off-contract Android phones, however a little more expensive than the OnePlus One.

And lastly, the source said that there will be some “surprises in store when it comes to hardware.” The source however refrained from elaborating any further.
Dubbed as OnePlus Two, the next generation OnePlus smartphone is also rumored to run on Android Lollipop and have a relatively smaller display than the One Plus One.

OnePlus is reportedly partnering Amazon India to launch OnePlus One. The device is believed to be priced below Rs 25,000 and will be sold through a special invite system.
