OnePlus 2 Revealed for the First Time Ahead of July 27th Launch
Just a week ahead of its launch, the OnePlus 2 has been revealed in a clear shot giving us our first look at the highly-anticipated phone of this year, and it’s all thanks to the Chinese wireless regulator TENAA.
TENAA, the Chinese telecoms regulator which certifies smartphones in the country, has published pictures of the device ahead of the launch, showing a smartphone which rather looks very similar to last year’s OnePlus One. Though the phone will come with a fingerprint scanner built into the physical home button, which is clearly highlighted in the leaked images.
Moreover, the photos show that the camera housing is now positioned slightly lower on the rear case of the phone, indicating the phone might get a laser autofocus first seen in the LG G3. It’s also obvious from the leaked images that the phone won’t have an all-metal chassis as claimed by some earlier leaks.
As for the specs of the new flagship, there isn’t much that we already don’t know about it thanks to various announcements made by OnePlus during the past few months. The OnePlus 2 is confirmed to feature an updated version of Snapdragon 810 CPU, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a reversible USB Type-C connector, 13-megapixel back camera and a 3,300mAh battery.
The company has also previously hinted that the OnePlus 2 will support dual-SIM connectivity. The price however is one important factor that is yet to be announced. But OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already promised that it will be under $450.
We’ll know all the details about the OnePlus 2 on July 27th when the company will officially launch the phone during a grand VR event in China.
