Smartphone maker OnePlus today unvieled its hotly anticipated second phone — the OnePlus 2. The phone offers significant improvements over its predecessor in terms of its cameras, display, and processor. “The One Plus 2 is very important because we have to prove to people, and most importantly to ourselves, that the OnePlus One was more than just a fluke,” said OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei during the announcement event Monday night.
The announcement itself was unique. The OnePlus 2 was announced during a 360-degree virtual reality presentation shot at the OnePlus office in China. Viewers were given cardboard headsets into which they slid their Android phone to view the presentation, which was a combination of Pei’s comments, customer interviews, and canned promo video.
