Carl Pei Confirms There's No OnePlus X2, Despite Fan Rumours About A Reboot After Three Years

C

The OnePlus X, launched way back in 2015, was a huge success for the company, being the first truly affordable option among its series of flagships. Because of that, fans have been hoping the device would get a reboot three years later.

In fact, there were rumours circulating lately that OnePlus was working on a device called the X2, set to launch later this year. Now, the company’s co-founder Carl Pei has put a stop to those rumours in a very eloquently worded post.

 

Nope. 🤷‍♂️ https://t.co/hsFBhDFZ8J

Jokes aside, Pei also came down hard on rumour-mongering calling it a “huge threat to human civilization.”

Expected annoyance perhaps, as the company had in 2016 stated the OnePlus X would not sire a successor, considering it received mostly negative reviews at the time. After all, while the company was competing well with its lower-priced “flagship killers” in the premium market, it was heavily outpriced by other companies already established in the low-end spectrum.

Once device we can hope to see this year instead, will be the OnePlus 6, expected sometime in the second quarter. All we know so far is that it’ll have the new Snapdragon 845 processor, and perhaps improved facial recognition technology carried over from the 5T.
