OnePlus 2 has been hogging the limelight from quite a while and just recently the company had confirmed some of the OnePlus 2 hardware specifications. Now, the phone has been spotted on the Chinese TENAA certification website giving us further sneak peek into the design of the handset. The photos give away the fact that camera sensor unit along with the LED flash has relocated downwards.
Alongside OnePlus 2 the company also seems to be working on a design centric smartphone which will cater to a special audience preferring design over other aspects of the smartphone. The OnePlus 2 will piggyback on the success of its predecessor which disrupted the entire market by offering high end specs at a reasonable price point.
The leaked image shows OnePlus 2 sporting the same sandstone black on the back cover, along with the camera sandwiched between the LED flash and laser auto-focus – similar to the one found on the LG G4. The phone is touted to come with an improved 13MP rear camera with really fast auto-focus. The Chinese blog which leaked this info claims that OnePlus 2 sports a 5.5-inch QHD display, but is considerably smaller in size as compared to its predecessor.
The side view of the phone shows what appears to be a metallic frame running around the display. On the right, we can see the volume rockers along with power/sleep button, while the left seems to house a nano-SIM tray. It has been confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will come with dual SIM support.
The OnePlus 2 will have a physical home button which will also double up as a fingerprint scanner. The Fingerprint scanner will add a new dimension of utility since the Android M will be natively supporting fingerprint sensors.
The OnePlus 2 is confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 810 SoC and will feature USB Type-C, 3300 mAh battery pack. If rumor mills are to be believed the phone will be priced at a killer $400. OnePlus 2 will be running the latest version of OxygenOS which will be based on Android Lollipop. The device will be launched on 27th of July and the launch is poised to happen through an innovative VR mode.
Editor’s note: If this is how the OnePlus 2 looks like, a lot of people will be disappointed. Not because it looks similar to the OnePlus One (which was one of the better looking phones last year), but because of the hype created with regards to the design. Have a look at the teaser video posted last week. That just doesn’t match with what we are seeing above.
