OnePlus 2 is official, costs $329
After months of anticipation and excitement that followed the social media hype, the OnePlus 2 has finally gone official. Running on an Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based Oxygen OS platform, the second-ever OnePlus smartphone went official at a “Virtual Reality” event this morning.
OnePlus 2 arrives with a magnesium ceramic body which measures 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85 mm and weighs in at 175 grams. The “2016 flagship killer” sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080p resolution — yes, 1080p; the rumors pointed at a QHD 1440p display and nobody saw that coming.
Under the hood, the OnePlus 2 packs a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC and 4GB of RAM alongside 16GB or 64GB of storage, depending on the configuration. A 3,300mAh battery unit with fast charging backs the device with electricity.
The OnePlus 2 has a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS and laser autofocus features. The camcorder can record 4K res videos in 30fps mode as well as HD videos at 120fps. A dual tone LED flash is mounted above the rear camera for lightening while a 5-megapixel secondary camera can be found on the phone’s front side.
Under the OnePlus 2, you’ll find a duo of stereo speakers separated by a microUSB type-C port in the middle. The phone’s 3.5mm headphone jack is positioned right on the top left side of the device.
Availability and price
Pricing for the two storage options differ as the 16GB model starts at $329 while the variant with 64GB of storage will set you back $389. The OnePlus 2 will be available for order starting from August 11.
