The OnePlus 2 smartphone is set to debut in less than a week, but leaked images of the purported phone have already surfaced. One leaked image displays the plastic cut-out of the front panels, a design feature possibly indicating a fingerprint scanner. Another leaked image shows the phone’s dimensions measuring 148.6×71.7mm, making it smaller than the first model. The images also show the new phone looks similar to the predecessor.
There was a total of four leaked images published on Chinese regulator’s website TENAA. The new phone is expected to debut during a virtual reality event on July 27th.
What to expect from OnePlus 2
OnePlus initially mentioned new features we can expect from the next phone. The list includes 4GB of RAM, 4G Support, and 64-bit Octa-core 810 chipset. It also comes with 3,300 mAh battery. Previous reports suggest features 5MP front camera, 13MP rear camera, and dual-LED flash.
The new phone also appears to feature the multi-material back complete with a metal frame. According TechRadar’s Matt Hanson and James Rogerson, “That wouldn’t be such a surprise, as we’ve heard talk of a metal before, though we’d still take the shot with a pinch of salt. It also doesn’t line up with two earlier images. If these are accurate it seems like the new handset won’t be too much of a departure from its predecessor – in the looks department, at least.”
Pricing details for OnePlus 2 still unknown
The original OnePlus One smartphone was considered a bargain at $299, but there is no official word on the price of the upcoming model. CEO Pete Lau previously announced the device would be under $450 on Twitter, but that is all we know for now.
Those who are interested in the upcoming smartphone can tune in next Monday with a virtual reality headset starting at 10:00 PM eastern standard time.
