OnePlus confirms that the OnePlus 2 will cost less than $450 (RM1717?)
OnePlus continues to drop the OnePlus 2 teasers as it heads towards the 27 July 2015 unveil date. Previously we reported on its Snapdragon 810 processor and fingerprint scanner but now a tweet from Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus reveals that the OnePlus 2 will be priced "under 450 USD". While this could mean the OnePlus 2 gets priced at $499.99 (RM1717) it is a significant step up in pricing from the original OnePlus One which started from $299 (RM1141). This could be caused by other OnePlus 2 features like a full metal frame and USB Type C port but if it does reach $449.99 it isn't a "flagship killer" anymore as it essentially becomes a flagship smartphone itself. The recent Huawei P8 flagship smartphone was priced at RM1799 and other similar flagship level smartphones are also being priced around this point as well.
