OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone brand which has confirmed it will be releasing a successor to its popular One smartphone, is now rumoured to bring out the next-gen handset earlier than expected, along with certain modifications.

According to a Christian Today report, the next-gen OnePlus One tentatively termed OnePlus Two will be released sometime between Q2 and Q3 2015. Sales of the older One smartphone will reportedly continue even post the launch of the newer handset, albeit with a price reduction.

Earlier reports had mentioned potential technical specifications of the OnePlus Two, according to which the smartphone will arrive with the following key aspects:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor
  • 5.5in display with comparatively better resolution than the current-gen OnePlus One
  • Android 5.0
  • 4GB RAM onboard
  • 3300 mAh battery

Besides, the next-gen device is rumoured to provide dual SIM-card and MicroSD card slots.

The latest Christian Post report also quashes the possibility of OnePlus Two running Android 5.0 OS out of the box, and instead states that the smartphone will run OnePlus' in-house OS termed Oxygen.

As of now, the Oxygen operating platform is yet to make its official debut which is expected in March. Nonetheless, Oxygen could be unveiled during the same time as that of the OnePlus Two.

Finally, the OnePlus Two smartphone is rumoured to debut in India before any other country, and later spread to other markets such as the UK and the US.
