Pei stated “the new product is neither a smartwatch nor a tablet leaving everyone to guess the next OnePlus product”. Now, the company has teased the launch of the upcoming device for the first time, with a post on the company’s official forum that hints at the at a gaming product.
On Thursday, the company on its official Forum post shared three images teasing the upcoming device and said, “It’s been a little over a year since OnePlus was founded, and while we launched with our flagship killer smartphone, we have, and always will be, a technology company. Innovation and revolutionary ideas that shake up the industry are what OnePlus has built itself upon.”
The company, describing its product strategy, added, “The One was created to disrupt the smartphone world. The Power Bank was born to give our users more options and greater mobility. So, when it came time to think about our next product, we decided on a curveball [..] It’s not a tablet, and it’s not a smartwatch. But it is a game changer,” it said.
Xiaomi, a rival Chinese firm, launched the Bluetooth-enabled Mi Game Controller in January at its gaming event. The firm in January had also launched its Mi Box Mini set-top box, and back in August had partnered with Ouya to offer games on its Mi Box and Mi TV platforms. –
