The OnePlus One has earned a reputation as one of the best phones you might not be able to get your hands on. The $299 handset features premium specs such as a 5.5 inch full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, and 3GB of RAM. But up until now you’ve needed an invitation to buy one.

That should change in late October when they phone will go up for a limited “pre-order” period.

But if you’re holding out for the next version, now we have an idea how long you’ll have to wait.

According to members of the OnePlus team, the OnePlus 2 should hit the streets in the second or third quarter of 2015.

Team members answered questions about the Chinese company and the devices it makes on Reddit today, with one answer suggesting that the second OnePlus phone would launch about a year after the first.

OnePlus also answered a question about smartwatches and tablets by confirming that it’s testing “products in various categories,” but hasn’t yet decided what the next product it launches will be.

Sadly for folks who just want to buy this year’s phone, it looks like there are no plans to just make the phone generally available to customers so that they don’t need an invite or pre-order… at least not before the end of 2014. That’s at least partially because OnePlus is selling the OnePlus One for about the price it costs to produce it — and the company is largely using the low price of the phone as a form of advertising. By offering a high quality device at a low price, a lot of people have been talking about the OnePlus One… but if the company mass produces more units than it knows it can sell, OnePlus could lose a lot of money.
