With the OnePlus One’s birthday right around the corner, it seems befitting for OnePlus to make some sort of announcement. Through its Twitter account, OnePlus did just that, but the tweet leaves us with more questions than answers.
OnePlus is set to make some sort of announcement on April 20, though the company leaves us guessing with this line: “From here on out, anything could happen.”

Of course, OnePlus could announce the successor to last year’s OnePlus One, the media-named OnePlus Two. Rumor has it the handset will pack a 5.5-inch display of unknown resolution, with a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Looking under the hood, we might find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and a 3,300mAh battery.
At the same time, however, the announcement could be of something completely different. OnePlus teased us for an announcement earlier in April. At the time, we believed it was some sort of gaming device, only for the company to completely prove us wrong and reveal a drone. Because of that, OnePlus’ upcoming announcement could be about anything: a wearable, a phone, a tablet. Nothing is out of reach, it seems.
The company also spoke with Bloomberg recently about its future plans. OnePlus hinted that it may introduce two devices this year, including the OnePlus 2 and a cheaper model. The OnePlus 2 is slated to launch in the third quarter, while the cheaper model will hit right before the year’s end, it’s creator Carl Pei said. Pei also mentioned that OnePlus is looking for venture capital funding to expand its business.
