OnePlus, the Chinese startup company, has scotched rumours regarding a delay of its next flagship smartphone launch.

The internet was abuzz with rumours that OnePlus Two, that will succeed the current OnePlus One, will be delayed. A report indicating the same was recently posted on Chinese social network, Weibo, with the OnePlus CEO saying he believed that the OnePlus One could still be a popular device for the second half of the year.

Meanwhile, Carl Pei, the OnePlus co-founder, has announced through a tweet that the device is still on track and the launch is scheduled for the third quarter of this year.

Carl Pie had previously confirmed that "We are planning to announce the OnePlus Two in Q2 or Q3 next year. So it is one after this phone (OnePlus One). OnePlus 2 should be out in Q2 or Q3 of 2015. By that time, I'd think Android L would be standard. We've seen a lot of people asking for a smaller device, and want to let everyone know that we hear you. We're thinking about it."

The company is rumoured to be revamping the design on OnePlus Two to make it more premium than its predecessor. OnePlus Two could feature a metal frame unlike the polycarbonate design of OnePlus One.
