Say hello to the OnePlus 2
July 28, 2015

The company’s latest flagship killer.

The OnePlus 2 has finally been unveiled – proving that you can make a high-end premium smartphone at an affordable price. The device was unveiled as part of a virtual reality launch that you can experience using a smartphone along with a VR glass accessory.

Back to the OnePlus 2. The new flagship features a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p screen with dual-SIM support, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. There is a 5-megapixel front facing camera along with a rear-facing 13-megapixel camera with dual LED flash.

Following other flagship smartphones, the OnePlus 2 now also has a built-in fingerprint scanner for added security – the company claims it is also faster than Apple’s Touch ID, which is currently present on most iOS devices. The OnePlus 2 is also the first smartphone to have a USB Type-C charging and data port.

The best thing about the OnePlus 2 is its $329 starting price (that is for the less powerful 16 GB model, while the high-end version will set you back at $389), less than half of what current flagships are being sold for. The OnePlus 2 will come in an aluminum-magnesium frame and will support various rear covers that range from the usual sandstone black design to real bamboo and even Kevlar.

Lastly, the OnePlus 2 will come with Oxygen OS, based on Android Lollipop 5.1.

Like the OnePlus One, the OnePlus 2 will only be available through an invite system.

We will have a review put up once we get our hands on the device.
