OnePlus 2 Launch: 7 Features and Specs You Must Know

The OnePlus 2 launch is now in the offing. However, to keep the shutterbugs going around, the company has always tried to remain in the news by revealing things about the upcoming gadget.

OnePlus 2 Launch

The OnePlus 2 is the descendant of the OnePlus One. As almost all companies do have, the OnePlus One too has a better and improved version in the form of OnePlus 2.

We had already talked about OnePlus 2 release and now we are here with the OnePlus 2 launch. Of course, we need to take a close look at the features and specs of the device that has always remained in the buzz of late.

Here are top seven features you must know before the OnePlus 2 launch.

Improved Design

The OnePlus 2 will come in an improved and lovely design as compared to its predecessor. Earlier, there had been leaked images through TENNA, which is a Chinese regulatory authority.

The change that immediately catches attention is the Home button. The button will be home to fingerprint scanner. So, there’s additional feature in the Home button now.


OnePlus One had a plastic frame, while the OnePlus 2 will come in a metallic frame. The OnePlus 2 launch also tells us that the device will be smaller in size than the OnePlus One.


There isn’t much difference in the battery capacity, though. The new OnePlus device will house a 3300mAh battery, which in earlier device was 3100mAh. This means, battery is improved by about 10%.

However, it must be mentioned that OnePlus One offers about more than one day battery life, it is really exciting to think how much will the new gadget offer. During the OnePlus 2 launch, we are expected to know more details.

Enhanced USB Connector

During the announcement of Android M, Google had pointed out that there would soon be the USB Type C connector in place of the microUSB connector. This connector can also connect backwards, just like the Lightening adaptor from Apple.

Now, why this OnePlus product will hold the edge is because the USB Type C will only be elite to these devices. So, the OnePlus 2 launch will indeed be exciting.

According to reports, the OnePlus 2 Smartphone will be developed with Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 810 processors. This was revealed by Carl Pie – the co-founder of the company.

The Snapdragon 810 processors are based on the 64-bit CPU platform. Also, it needs to be mentioned that there will be 4GB of RAM in the OnePlus 2. The combined efforts of this hardware will facilitate the use of 64-bit apps that are just round the corner.

The downside of the Snapdragon 810 is that is heats fast and quick. That’s why the device uses v2.1 processor that allows the phone to be “cooler than ever”.


Things didn’t work out well for OnePlus and Cyanogen in the previous year. That’s why it’s evident that during the OnePlus 2 launch there will be no repeat of the previous. In short, the software for this device will be Oxygen OS – the operating system built at home.

However, this version is based on Android Lollipop. In simple words, there are features in this OS version that are unique to this device as long as the Android M doesn’t release.


There is no official word about camera features yet. That’s why we will have to wait until the OnePlus 2 launch. But the leaked images still have a story to tell. The rear camera will be 16MP with dual-LED flash.

There will be laser-focus technology in the camera, which will allow the camera focusing on objects quickly.

Dual-SIM Support

OnePlus 2 supports dual-SIM unlike OnePlus One. No wonder, this will be the USP of the device and will make it more competitive. There will be more bands that will support the OnePlus 2 than its predecessor.

The supporting bands are from the US and Europe.


There will also be a fingerprint sensor, which is dimed to be faster than the TouchID system by Apple. There is space for storing at least five such fingerprints for authentication. There is still no information as to what unique features the scanners will have. Probably, we will have to wait until OnePlus 2 launch.

It has been revealed that there will be 4GB of RAM in the Smartphone. This simply means it is one of the few phones available with such high memory capacity.
