OnePlus 2 will launch in Q2 or Q3 of 2015, likely to run on Android L

The OnePlus One is still not exactly widely available for purchase, but it looks like OnePlus is already giving us a time frame for when we should the expect to see its successor. During a recent AMA on Reddit, Carl and David from OnePlus offered to answer “almost” any questions coming in from the fans. As you might imagine, a lot of people asked about the OnePlus 2 and its potential release date. Usually these kind of questions are dodged by most companies, but the folks over at OnePlus were more than happy to answer. “OnePlus 2 should be out in Q2 or Q3 of 2015,” the company said. “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.”

I happen to agree on the fact that Android L is likely to be standard by that so we can safely assume that the OnePlus 2 will be running it. Granted, it will probably run on a version of CyanogenMod based on Android L, just like the OnePlus One runs on a similar version based on Android 4.4 KitKat. We also learned from the response that the company is considering launching a smaller smartphone, but apparently it’s not quite ready to talk about. Elsewhere, someone asked if the OnePlus 2 will be around the same size as the OnePlus One. Carl replied with “It may or may not be.”

So, will the upcoming device end up featuring a display smaller than 5.5-inch? Most manufacturers seem keen on releasing bigger and bigger smartphones, but OnePlus might be doing the right thing by launching a smaller one. Now there are plenty of 5.5-inch competitors around and that’s not very good for business. We’ll let you know as soon as we learn any new details about the OnePlus 2 so stay tuned.
