OnePlus has had incredible success with its first attempt at the smartphone, with the One still seeing exceptional demand six months after making its original sales debut. Now the Chinese company is hoping to build upon that with an even more impressive OnePlus Two, which is expected to deliver a sharper display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processor, and an even better rear-facing camera.

According to a source for MobileBurnwho claims to be familiar with OnePlus’s plans, the Two will be around the same size as the One with a 5.5-inch display, but it will offer a significantly sharper Quad HD resolution — that’s the same resolution as handset’s like the LG G3 and the Galaxy Note 4.

Under the hood, the Two will reportedly pack the quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor — a nice improvement over the One’s Snapdragon 801 — and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera (up from 13 megapixels). The battery life the One has become famous for will likely be even better thanks to the Two’s larger 3,300mAh battery, and the entry-level 16GB storage option could be doubled to 32GB.

Specifications like these will come at a price, however. MobileBurn reports the OnePlus Two could cost around $100 more than the original One, but that would still make it significantly cheaper than comparable flagships off-contract. Let’s just hope the Two is easier to get hold of than its predecessor, which still requires an invite.

Of course, OnePlus is very quiet about its plans for upcoming devices, so none of this has been confirmed just yet. And it isn’t likely to be announced anytime soon, either, with the Two not expected to make its debut until the third quarter of 2015. However, given that we know the device will be competing with other flagship phones, these specs certainly seem plausible.

Are you looking forward to the OnePlus Two?
