Supplementing the OnePlus 2, which <a href="https://www.techspot.com/news/61537-oneplus-2-launches-2016-flagship-killer-329.html">launched</a> just last week as a self-proclaimed &quot;2016 flagship killer&quot;, Pei confirms this new handset will arrive &quot;before the end of the year. Hopefully for Christmas.&quot;</p> <p>In comparison to the OnePlus 2, Pei wasn&#39;t clear on whether the forthcoming device would boast higher specs than the current model.</p> <p>&quot;When I saw the prototype for that phone,&quot; Pei explains, &quot;I was like &#39;Holy ****&#39;, that&#39;s going to be my daily driver&#39;, but then when the OnePlus 2 production version came out it&#39;s also super nice, so it&#39;s really hard to decide now what to use.&quot;</p> <p>Presently, the OnePlus 2 has garnered the interest of over a million potential customers through its arduous <a href="https://oneplus.net/invites">invite system</a>, which requires an invitation from either a current OnePlus 2 owner or by participation in contests and promotions.</p> <p>The OnePlus 2 is scheduled to start shipping in August, beginning at a modest $329 for a 16GB version, with a $389 64GB SKU also available, no contract required. Previously, the Chinese startup oversaw the transactions of 1.5 million units with its predecessor, the <a href="https://www.techspot.com/products/smartphones/oneplus-one.102478/">OnePlus One</a>, introduced in April of last year.</p> <p>While OnePlus has recently become widely known to offer high-end smartphones at a reasonable price, the 25-year-old co-founder told The Verge yesterday that &quot;That&#39;s never been the goal. The goal has been to just think about the best user experience and make it happen.&quot;</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='https://www.techspot.com/news/61627-second-oneplus-phone-coming-2015.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='https://www.techspot.com/news/61627-second-oneplus-phone-coming-2015.html'>https://www.techspot.com/news/61627-second-oneplus-phone-coming-2015.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]

    Will this new phone be better than the I-phone 06 or just another nice phone for AT&T -Virizon or for everyone like Blue wireless or cricket users ?
