OnePlus is one of the most interesting and innovative smartphone companies around at the moment, and rose to prominence in 2014 when it sold its first smartphone, the OnePlus One, which features cutting-edge specs, a budget price (Rs. 19,121) and a unique invite-only system of selling the device.

On Chinese social media site Weibo, co-founder and CEO Pete Lau used the platform to poll OnePlus fans on how much they thought the OnePlus Two should cost if it were equipped with a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and when a fan replied CN¥ 2500 (Rs. 25,766) he stated that sounded reasonable.
His fellow co-founder Carl Pei, who is now head of global at the company, also decided to test the waters with fans of the smartphones, this time on Twitter, asking:<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If the OnePlus 2 comes with the <a href="https://twitter.com/Snapdragon">@Snapdragon</a> 810, how much should we charge for it?</p>— Carl Pei (@getpeid) <a href="https://twitter.com/getpeid/status/596206809439817728">May 7, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
When Twitter user @Info4Geek responded saying that $400 (Rs. 25,580) would be about right, Pei said "sounds reasonable".
The company is planning on launching a more budget-focused smartphone alongside the OnePlus Two later this year but little is known about that device.

What we know about the OnePlus Two is that it will be launched sometime in the second half of 2015, will feature a SnapDragon 810 chip and will run the company's own Oxygen OS, after the firm announced plans to develop its own software in place of Cyanogen OS which ran on the OnePlus One.
