Probably one of the most awaited smartphones of the year, the One Plus took off wraps of the next iteration of their flagship device this morning at a unique VR event. An hour after the unveiling, it has announced the Indian price and availability as well. The OnePlus 2 64GB variant will go on sale for ₹24,999 from August 11 exclusively on Amazon India. There is also a 16GB (3GB RAM) variant which the company says will go on sale later this year.
Like the OnePlus One, its successor also brings in a plethora of advancements in terms of both hardware and software. The OnePlus 2 flaunts a 5.5 inches Full HD In-Cell display protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The design of the smartphone has also been revamped and it now features a magnesium-aluminum alloy frame.
On the Photography front, the device has a 13-megapixel rear camera with laser autofocus, f/2.0 aperture with Optical Image Stabilization and dual-LED flash. The rear camera also shoots 4K and slow-motion. On the front there is a 5-megapixel camera which the company claims is “distortion free”. The front camera shoots 720p video at 120fps.
OnePlus 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 Octa-core processor clocked to 1.8GHz which is paired with 4GB of RAM. Additionally, there is also an Adreno 430 GPU chipset. The device is available in memory variants of 16/64 GB with the 16GB variant featuring 3GB of RAM. OnePlus 2 runs on OxygenOS which is based on Android 5.1. This is essentially a tweaked version of Android with many of the Android stock features being kept.
The OnePlus 2 features a USB type-C port, a fingerprint sensor embedded onto the home button which “stores up to 5 unique fingerprints, and is extremely fast.” The device comes with OnePlus’s classic Sandstone Back cover with 4 StyleSwap covers – Bamboo, Black Apricot, Rosewood, and Kevlar also available. There is also an “Alert Slider” which is essentially a slider button (iPhone), customizable and lets user toggle between notifications.
The OnePlus 2 draws its power from a 3,300 mAh LiPo battery and connectivity features such as dual-SIM LTE card slots, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi.
