There’s been no shortage of official OnePlus 2 info going back the past several weeks now, as the company teases the smartphone’s features in anticipation of its end-of-July launch. Piece by piece, OnePlus has slowly been letting us know what to expect from its second-gen handset. And as we look forward to the company divulging the next bit of info about the phone, we’ve found ourselves turning to some additional sources, like the benchmark data that appeared to reveal three variants of the model. Now we’re turning our attention back to a much more official source, though one who’s speaking a bit obtusely at the moment, as OnePlus CEO Pete Lau drops a possible hint about the OnePlus 2’s construction.
In a post on Chinese social network Weibo, Lau drops the question, “How to define ‘full metal?’”
While there’s the possibility this comment may be in regards to the just-launched Meizu MX5, another interpretation suggests Lau may be talking about his company’s own OnePlus 2, and that metallic elements may come into play for the phone’s design. It’s difficult to work out just what Lau meant to imply by that phrasing, and if we’re looking at a OnePlus 2 metal frame, metal back panel, or metal everywhere. With a smidge of luck we just might have a more formal statement soon, as OnePlus continues to announce OnePlus 2 hardware details.
