All you need to know about the upcoming OnePlus 2
OnePlus One was a total surprise for us which was the first product of a new company which did not dissapoint us at all, thanks to the high end specs and the low price tag. It officially got the term, the Flagship Killer.
If there were any complains against the OnePlus One, it would undoubtely be the process of getting it. The invite-system method was going on until recently OnePlus One is currently available in stores.
When OnePlus one came out, there were no expectations at all but for the upcoming OnePlus 2, expectations are sky high. According to the company, they seem to be very confident about their upcoming product and instead of being the title product of the year, they want to show their industry buddies the way forward. Pretty slick!
OnePlus has been teasing the upcoming OnePlus 2 with cryptic messages for the past few months.Until recently, the company has announced that they will be unveiling their latest device on July 27th. One month from writing this post.
Till now, OnePlus only revealed two information- the processor, charging input, release date and the price.
OnePlus One Price
According to a recent tweet by Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, the price of the upcoming OnePlus 2 will be priced under $450! This beats the rumor of the device being priced above $500.
OnePlus 2 to launch in VR
OnePlus 2 will be the first ever phone in the world to launch their product in a virtual reality presentation. To make sure the fans can tune in, OnePlus is working on a free Cardboard so that the owners of the first phone can use it to watch.
So what’s different?
According to the OnePlus forum, here’s what they had to say ““A VR launch lets you stand right next to our team and our fans as we unveil our new flagship. You’ll be able to look around as you check out the phone in a new way and maybe even find a few hidden Easter eggs. It’s a new way of thinking about a product launch. We aren’t talking at you; we are talking with you.”
OnePlus 2 Power
The company has confirmed that the device will be including the powerful but troublesome Octa-Core Snapdragon 810 processor that is currently found in the latest HTC One M9 and the LG G Flex 2.
Snapdragon 810 processor had received many complains due to the overheating issues but for OnePlus Two, the device will be sporting the 2.1 version which perhaps would resolve the issue.
OnePlus 2 Charging
OnePlus has confirmed that the new device will be sporting a USB Type C port which would allow to plug in the USB charging cable any away round which certainly makes it eaiser to connect, specially at the dark.
“We’ve made further improvements on top of the USB Type C standard that we have patented and that will be exclusive to OnePlus. We don’t want to spoil the surprise, so tune into the OnePlus 2 launch to find out more!”
Price of OnePlus 2
OnePlus One carried a price tag of only $300 for the 16GB Model and $349 for the 64GB model which undoubtedly was the lowest price of a high-spec phone. Similarly, we are expecting the same from OnePlus 2 as well ; an affordable price tag.
However, according to the CEO, the price of the OnePlus 2 will be much higher than the initial price tag of OnePlus 2 at around $400. Still not much is know for the price, so fingers crossed for this.
Update: Price to be less than $450
According to the might rumors, the OnePlus 2 might include a 5.5-inch QHD screen, a poerful 4GB RAM, 3300mAh battery, a 16MP main camera and a 5MP front facing camera. The evice might also be sporting a fingerprint scanner which would be a good addition. However, this might be the cause of an increased price. As for the OS, the OnePlus 2 will have the OxygenOS installed which might be paired with Android Lollipop, with no confirmation to this.
We’ll update this section as soon as we get more information regarding the OnePlus 2!
