OnePlus Two launch details have emerged, as well as YotaPhone 2 release dates. Meanwhile, a new study suggest a lot of Americans haven’t even heard of Uber.
The OnePlus One hit India today, and the guys at BGR simply couldn’t resist asking about the successor. Carl Pei, OnePlus Global Director, has told BGR India that the OnePlus Two is likely to be announced during Q2 or Q3 of 2015. “So it is one year after this phone” (OnePlus One).
That is all we are hearing today, but rumors suggest the upcoming phone could have a smaller display. The large OnePlus One screen is a turn-off for many customers. Bringing a more general consumer-friendly device may really turn things around.
Opinion: Let’s hope OnePlus has more manufacturing power by then. I would liek to see a massive release world-wide, if possible. We know their phones would sell, and the OnePlus One has been getting them some good cash.
It has been a while since we saw the YotaPhone 2 at Mobile World Congress. The small Russian manufacturer managed to bring my favorite MWC device to the show floor. Not only was it a huge improvement over its predecessor, but it matched other high-end smartphones in the market.
When will we see it? About 10 months have passed and we haven’t heard a thing about the phone’s release until today. The YotaPhone will finally see a release this December in 20 European countries. Then it will come to China and other Asian countries in 2015, followed by Canada and Latin America.
Opinion: As much as I love the YotaPhone 2, it’s a bit too late to the party. It was a stunning device in the beginning of 2014, but at this point it’s an out-dated product. Let’s just hope the YotaPhone 3 comes to market much sooner.
Have you ever heard of Uber? Chances are you have, especially if you are readying a tech-focused website like Mobile Geeks. One would think Uber has reached every person in the USA, at least. You all must have at least heard the name mentioned, right? Wrong!
A new study from Mashable and SurveyMonkey is showing that 37% of US people have never even heard of Uber. The survey goes into detail about the problems Uber has been having with the press, and how people react to it.
It turns out 88% of the people who do know what Uber is, have never used it. And about 35% said they would not use Uber after finding out all the problems the company has been getting itself into.
Opinion: It really makes a difference what companies you support. You don’t want “bad” people running around in any industry, right? The numbers are very interesting, so give them a look at Mashable’s website if you want to learn more.
