Seldom are the life-lessons so clear when you launch a follow-up product, like the new OnePlus 2 Android smartphone. Born of a desire to cater to the whims of the Android enthusiast, the requests were simple: they wanted power, they wanted affordability, and they wanted it right now.

Unlike FCC sightings, a device that sits on China's TENAA pages is bound to reveal more details. That's why when an upcoming smartphone get spotted there, the Interweb seems to run amok.
