News Update On SmartPhone Ever : $500 For OnePlus 2? Not So Fast

We know the OnePlus 2 will come with come with fancy features like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and a USB-C port, but does that mean it's also getting a bump in price from its predecessor, the One?

Maybe. The Chinese smartphone maker has not yet announced exact pricing details for the upcoming handset, but on Monday put to bed rumors that the OnePlus 2 will cost up to $200 more than the One.

    We've seen price estimates for the #OnePlus2 upwards of $500. "Honestly, it's never been about the price."

That's still more than the One, which originally hit the market for $299, and recently got a permanent price cut to $249.
The OnePlus 2 makes its official debut on July 27 (in virtual reality), so hopefully we'll hear some more concrete pricing information then.

Details are slowly trickling out about the upcoming handset, and OnePlus recently confirmed that the next-gen device will sport a USB-C port. Depending on when it arrives, the 2 could be the first smartphone to sport a USB-C port, which Apple and Google are already using for laptops.

It will also use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor, which has been linked to overheating problems in other handsets, but OnePlus promises that won't be a problem for the 2.

"We assure you that we have taken all the necessary precautions and beyond to prevent this from occurring in the 2," the company said last month. "We worked very closely with Qualcomm's engineers to integrate an improved version of the chipset (v2.1) in the OnePlus 2, and fine-tuned both hardware and software."
