OnePlus 2 Listed on IDA’s Website, To be Sold In-Store?
It seems that OnePlus is planning to sell its upcoming flagship OnePlus 2 in physical stores in Singapore.
The highly-anticipated phone has just been spotted on IDA’s Equipment Search List. The phone was listed with the model name, One A2003, which is one of the three variants at launch with the support of LTE bands as the main differentiator.
The most interesting piece of information revealed by this listing is the supplier, Mercantile Pacific Asia Pte. Ltd. – a firm involved in the import-export business of electronic products including mobile phones and digital cameras. Mercantile Pacific is currently a wholesale distributor of smartphones from LG, Samsung and Motorola.
This hints on the possibility that OnePlus 2 might be sold through retail stores in Singapore at launch unlike its predecessor which was available for purchase on OnePlus website via the invite-only system. Mercantile Pacific Asia could also partner with a telco to put the device on a two-year contract.
However, these are just speculations as nothing is confirmed at the moment. We’ll know exactly what’s in the store once the company unveils the phone on July 27th.
As for the specifications, 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 China-based manufacturer 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.
