    Last year, we released our first product, the OnePlus One, a true flagship killer that could hold its ground next to the best flagships. It set a new standard in consumers’ minds; that a great smartphone could be purchased online and unlocked, while at the same time with no compromises when it came to design, build quality or specs.

    This year, we want to go one step further. Instead of merely being on par with the flagships of 2015, we want to show our industry buddies the way forward. We want to provide an amazing user experience that our competition won’t merely try and catch up to later this fall, but also throughout 2016 and beyond. The USB Type C port on the OnePlus 2 is just one of these details.

    The OnePlus 2 will be the first global flagship smartphone sporting this breakthrough technology. Its cable channels the same beautiful design of the OnePlus One’s that our users love, but this time with the added convenience and comfort of a reversible plug. Great products make life easier, and reducing a bit of worry everyday when our users plug in their devices is a significant improvement in user experience that we’re proud of.

    Type C USB is the way of the future. The varying port sizes taking up space on your devices will gradually change to the new Type C open standard for more efficiency. With all the benefits this brings, there’s no doubt we’ll be seeing it everywhere very soon. OnePlus 2 users will be future proof when this happens.

    Paired with our adapter, the port will be backwards compatible, so current One owners don’t have to worry. With the OnePlus 2, the USB cable is more optimal than ever. It’s a simple change to connectivity, but it’s something we saw needed to change.

    But that’s not all. We’ve made further improvements on top of the USB Type C standard that we have patented and that will be exclusive to OnePlus. We don’t want to spoil the surprise, so tune into the OnePlus 2 launch to find out more!

    Which I assume is not free...lol
    I notice you guys say flagship, not flagship killer anymore. Interesting.


    I'm still reserving judgement until the phone is out into people's hands.
