    The OnePlus two will come with USB type C, offering many advantages such as:

    It’s reversible, like Apple’s Lightning cable. No more fumbling to plug it in the right way.
    It can transfer data at up to 10 Gbps—i.e. 10 times your crazy Google Fiber connection per second. (If you have Google Fiber, I hate you forever.)
    It can do video. Forget specialized video ports like DisplayPort and HDMI (eventually anyway) because Type-C can do that too. And in both directions. A single cable could carry video from phone to PC or PC to phone. Or to TVs, tablets, you name it.
    It can carry a crapload of power. Depending on the wall-wart you plug your Type-C cable into, it can deliver up to 100w of power. That’s enough to charge full-size laptops, not just ones with underpowered processors.
    Like all USBs, Type-C is an open standard. It won’t be exclusive to any one company or line of gadgets.
    Type-C is backwards-compatible. You can use with the old ports that are already all around you (if you get an adapter).
    It’s tiny. Small enough to make laptops thinner and work its way into phones and tablets.

    Any thoughts on the newly announced OnePlus Two feature?

    OnePlus will again be controlling their inventory risk by using an invitation-only plan for the first few months of the 1+2's availability. They have indicated that the initial invitations will be given to long-term owners of the 1+1; after that, no one knows exactly how it will work, although we assume it will be like the 1+1 invitations, where purchasers of the 1+2 will receive invitations to pass along, either to people they know or via their social media interactions like the forum here. I imagine there will also be some contests where people will be able to win invitations.

    Presumably eventually the 1+2 will follow the 1+1 and become generally available, but the timing of that is as mysterious as everything else. I wouldn't count on it for several months, at least, unless the 1+2 bombs in the marketplace and they end up with an oversupply that they need to dispose of.
