OnePlus 2 Release Date, News, Price and Specs

OnePlus 2

After taking the market with a storm last year with their 2014 flagship killer, the OnePlus One, Carl and his team are back with the OnePlus 2. This time around, OnePlus is claiming that their handset is not a 2015 flagship killer but a 2016 flagship killer.

Just like its predecessor, the OnePlus 2 comes with high-end specs at a mouth watering price. This includes a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 810 chipset, 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 16/64GB of storage space, USB Type-C port, a fingerprint sensor, a 3,300mAh sealed battery, a 13MP rear shooter with OIS, and a 5MP selfie shooter. This time around, the flagship killer is running on Oxygen OS 2.0, which offers an experience that is similar to stock Android, and not Cyanogen OS.

Despite coming with specs that rival some of the very best smartphones available in the market right now from HTC, LG and Samsung, the OnePlus only costs a fraction of what their retail price. The 16GB variant of the handset comes in at $329, while the 64GB variant will set you back by $389.
