This summer saw the release of the OnePlus 3. According to Qualcomm, a new OnePlus handset is on the way – this one powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor, an upgrade over the last phone’s Snapdragon 820. Chipmaker Qualcomm teased as much from their official Twitter account with a cute little dragon!

With the very recent release of the OnePlus 3, chances are this isn’t a full-fledged successor, but more like the OnePlus X – a hearty upgrade but at heart still very much the same phone. The timeline just doesn’t lend itself to a brand new OnePlus handset.

It makes you wonder if Samsung’s recent troubles led to OnePlus ramping up production to take advantage of the company’s woes. The smartphone market is still very crowded, but there’s going to be a Galaxy Note 7-sized hole this holiday season, and maybe OnePlus is the right company to fill it.
