OnePlus teases June 1 announcement to “shake up” the industry
It took the better part of a year, but back in April we saw the OnePlus One take a big step forward as it put the invite system that had long plagued sales of the handset behind it. In the weeks since, we’ve been keeping an eye on some OnePlus One software developments, while also thinking about what we’d like to see from the OnePlus 2. That model’s not expected until Q3, but now a new teaser has us wondering if OnePlus might not have some early news to share with us, as the company mentions something coming on June 1 with the potential to “shake up the tech industry.”
OnePlus tells us that it’s “time for change,” and the image it shares above, with the OnePlus one being erased away, certainly suggests it could be serious about that. Still, there are a million ways this news could go: changing software, changing hardware, changing accessories … and while we might like to hope that the company could be talking about moving forward to the OnePlus 2, that’s far from a given.
It’s also worth noting that the last time OnePlus got us excited about a big announcement, it was that news about the end of invites – good news, sure, but we might have gotten a little too excited hoping for something slightly more substantial. As a result, we’re trying not to get carried away this time; we’ll just have to patiently wait for Monday.
