The OnePlus 2 will be unveiled on July 27 to the world through a virtual reality presentation that is sure to be something to tell your children about. (Whoa, Kellen, what’s with the heavy sarcasm this morning, bruh?) As we close in on that day, OnePlus is guaranteed to unapologetically hypebeast the hell of the phone by revealing one feature at a time, all the while remaining in headlines and relevant. We’re deep into the (t)rollout of features and loving every second of it! (Sarcasm bath x2.) But because we lack patience, we will also be on the hunt for details that we can unearth on our own, like this filing that showed up at Bluetooth SIG. (more…)
OnePlus has an official date set for the unveiling of the OnePlus 2, that being July 27 at 7pm PT.

The process seems rather simple enough, as it involves just downloading and flashing two separate zip files. Although, you do need .Net 4.5 downloaded and you must be running this on a locally installed version of Windows 7 or Windows 8. No Mac support. (more…)

OnePlus attempted to address those concerns in another post to their forums, this morning, while also speaking on rumors of a random price that has floated about the dark tunnels of the interwebs.

Last year, as OnePlus prepared to launch their first phone, the OnePlus One, the company announced a new feature or two on a weekly basis to try and stir up a constant stream of press. It was an obnoxiously smart move for a company who likely has the tiniest of marketing budgets. The idea is that you announce a new feature each week, hypebeast the hell out of it on forums and social networks, and then watch as all of the little tech blogs cover it, helping spread the word to the masses. The strategy proved to be a success, as the company sold a million phones last year without spending much if anything.
OnePlus is giving three grand prize winners an all-expenses-paid trip to Hong Kong, while also hand delivering an all-new OnePlus 2 if you have the skills needed to win. In two separate contests, you either create and publish on YouTube a detailed video about your “OnePlus Story,” or share the best photo you can on Instagram taken on a OnePlus One with no editing whatsoever.
