OnePlus 2 launched: Specs, price, availability of the new flagship handset

OnePlus 2
 
After months of leaks and rumors, Chinese handset maker OnePlus recently announced the successor to its popular OnePlus One smartphone, describing the second generation device as another “flagship killer” launched on Tuesday. The handset certainly has a lot of impressive things to shout about. From 4GB RAM on the premium 64GB model to aSnapdragon 810 processor and 13MP camera equipped with f/2.0 aperture, 1.3µm pixel size, optical image stabilisation and laser autofocus, there’s a lot to like about the OnePlus 2. The company did a brilliant job with the original, offering virtually top-end specs for a low-end price, while also creating desirability by making it difficult to get your hands on.
Here’s the full specs sheet for the new handset.

  • Dimensions: 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85 mm
  • Weight: 175g
  • 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display with 401 pixel-per-inch density and Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor
  • 3/4GB of LPDDR4 RAM
  • 16/64GB of eMMC 5.0 storage
  • 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS)
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n and 5GHz 802.11a/n/ac
  • Bluetooth 5.1
  • LTE
  • Dual-SIM support
  • GPS and GLONASS
  • Oxygen OS based on Android 5.1
  • Fingerprint button
  • Alert slider
  • USB Type-C connector
  • 3,300 mAh battery

The OnePlus 2 follows the same exclusivity path, available through invite only, and it also follows the same morals – high-end specs, low-end price. On August 11th, the OnePlus 2 will be available in two configurations: a 4GB of RAM / 64GB model priced at INR 24,99 and a 3GB of RAM / 16GB model priced at INR 22,999.
Let’s take a look at some of the flagship features that are potentially missing from the OnePlus 2.

  • NFC
  • Wireless Charging
  • Removable battery
  • Quad HD Resolution
  • Expandable Storage

There’s no denying that the OnePlus 2 is certainly an impressive smartphone but to say the OnePlus 2 will kill the other flagships would be a little dramatic.
