OnePlus 2 price confirmed to be more than $322, company pissed off because people are skeptical





Yesterday it was revealed that the OnePlus 2 would use a new version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset. It’s “v2.1″ and they’ve gone through some revisions to make sure the chipset has no overheating issues.
And everyone proceeded to call them liars. And now they’re mad. No, really, they are actually mad. They maintain that the Snapdragon 810 is a great chipset, and that there won’t be any performance sacrifices made in order to keep the heat down.
Their claims don’t seem unfounded, with AnandTech’s analysis showing that this version of the Snapdragon 810 actually has a 33% advantage in memory bandwidth and a slight increase in clock speed for its GPU.
The biggest reason they’re pissed off is because they feel they really didn’t push the limit in going with the Snapdragon 810, but that would be a very narrow way to look at it. For starters, the Snapdragon 810 is still a top-line chipset despite some of its early issues.
They also revealed that it costs more than the Snapdragon 801 ever did, noting that their phone will most certainly cost more than $322 as a result. How much higher? They weren’t at liberty to say just yet, but we’re hoping they’ll look to keep their trend of accepting razor-thin profits up, so we won’t be expecting it at much more than $400.
All of that is to say that it’s too early to pass a judgment on a phone we haven’t even seen yet (well, that’s not entirely true — the phone in the image above is an actual OnePlus 2 prototype, but it’s kind of hard to tell) so hold your horses and wait for all the details to come to light

Official: OnePlus 2 will be one of the first smartphones to feature a USB Type-C port





OnePlus is officially getting the hype train rolling for their upcoming OnePlus 2, the followup to last year’s (frustrating) OnePlus One flagship. Today they announced on social media that the phone will be the first Android flagship to feature USB Type C, a reversible port that doesn’t care which way you insert the cable in (similar to Apple’s Lightning port on the iPhone).
The connection does more than just charge devices (which tops out at 5A/20V/100W vs USB 2.0’s 2.5V), allowing video output as well thanks to higher 10Gbps speeds. Google committed to the new connector back when they unveiled the Chromebook Pixel 2 in March, so we expect it will also arrive in this year’s Nexus launching at the end of this year. OnePlus seems confident their flagship will be the first to use the new spec, so we expect a OnePlus 2 launch is right around the corner.

This is what the OnePlus 2’s USB Type-C cable will look like









It was only a couple of days ago that OnePlus confirmed their latest smartphone would look to use USB Type-C, a new USB standard that features identical-sided cables, two-way transfer + charging (your smartphone could charge your wireless headset!) and more.

So how does it look? For OnePlus 2, pretty damn sexy. You can see a photo of it above, courtesy of MyDrivers. It features OnePlus’s signature red, the logo on each end, and a flat tangle-free design to protect the innards of the cable.

It looks pretty neat, and we’re sure it’ll do well to get folks excited for the OnePlus 2 and the possibilities enabled thanks to the advent of USB Type-C.

OnePlus wants you to get on their hype train, makes no apologies about marketing tactics





Love it or hate, there’s probably only reason you’ve even heard of OnePlus and much of that has to do with their grass roots marketing. When the smartphone startup and brainchild of former OPPO exec Carl Pei joined Google+, they used it as a way to generate buzz amongst Android’s most die hard users without pouring countless ad dollars into online or television marketing campaigns like the big guys. So far, it’s worked. Except when it hasn’t.
The company’s motto of “Never settle” had a way of backfiring on them at times, especially when it came to faulty devices, customer service issues, or the company’s insanely frustrating invite system. Despite all this, the OnePlus is set to do it all over again with their next flagship device, the OnePlus 2.
OnePlus has been teasing the phone for the better part of a few weeks now and if you thought maybe they’d tone down their “marketing” or do things differently this time around — think again. Lately they’ve been trickling out details on the device’s specs as they near its inevitable launch and tomorrow, they’ll unveil another component in an effort at keeping the hype train rolling. Don’t like the way OnePlus is doing things? Too bad. That’s the sentiment OnePlus is conveying in their latest blog post.
According to OnePlus, their marketing budget is extremely small (outside of Google+, it’s virtually nonexistent) and in order to stay relevant they need to be loud. Really loud. It’s the only way they can go head-to-head with the Samsungs and LGs of the world who have already gotten off to a great start with their 2015 flagships. In other words, OnePlus is going to continue doing what they’ve always done, because it worked out so well for them the last time. If that takes you and your wallet elsewhere, then so be it.
We can’t help but wonder if a company’s marketing — even OnePlus’ — has ever really turned someone away from buying an Android device. In Android circles, we typically find it’s more about hardware and specs than anything else (customer service, software, support, etc.). Even though OnePlus’ #neversettle hashtag was hijacked, we’ll find out soon enough if their phone is worth the hype.

OnePlus 2 reveal date announced, launch will be streamed in VR









We were expecting OnePlus to unveil another hardware component of the upcoming OnePlus 2 today but instead, the company revealed something else. Broadcasted onto (where else) but their forum and usual social media channels, OnePlus announced the reveal date for the OnePlus 2. The phone will officially be unveiled on Monday, July 27th at 7PM PT.
Unlike your normal product launch — which typically only live streams an event in regular ‘ol 2D — OnePlus will actually broadcast the show in 360-degree virtual reality. Because OnePlus knows not everyone owns a VR headset (I recently received my unit from Adult Swim’s free giveaway), they decided to build their own Google Cardboard unit only with a few improvements. It’s not available quite yet, but OnePlus tells us to check back where you’ll soon be able to order one (apparently free of charge?). You can find it here.
We’re sure to hear a lot more from OnePlus as the days progress, so stay tuned.

Official: OnePlus 2 will come feature a fingerprint sensor that’s faster than Apple’s TouchID





Okay, so this mornings OnePlus 2 leak was more than likely a fake, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t get one thing right: the phone’s upcoming fingerprint scanner. We’re sure it was just a lucky guess, what with all the OEMs finally jumping on the fingerprint bandwagon (and native support coming in Android M).
It’s not too surprising but confirmed today by OnePlus themselves, it seems the upcoming OnePlus 2 will, in fact, come equipped with some sort of fingerprint reader. Because there’s so many different types of fingerprint reading hardware out there (some that suck more than others), OnePlus assures us that theirs is one of the latest and most advanced fingerprint sensors around. According to them, it’s even faster at unlocking devices than Apple’s TouchID and can store up to 5 fingerprint profiles.
This latest OnePlus 2 announcement is just one of many more to come. The smartphone startup has a history of slowly revealing key aspects of their flagship’s hardware as they get closer to the full reveal at their press event on July 27th. The event will be one of the first ever to not only be streamed online, but offers a virtual reality experience for those of you lucky enough to have a VR headset at your disposal. If you don’t, don’t worry. OnePlus is supplying those too.

Three OnePlus 2 variants stop at Bluetooth SIG, one of which has 4GB of RAM









This is odd. Three different variants of the OnePlus 2 have shown up for approval at the Bluetooth SIG. We’ve got the A2001, A2003 and A2005 on tap.
Our first guess is that these could be phones with three different storage capacities, or perhaps different modems for different regions. Unfortunately those questions won’t be easy to answer until these things start popping up in the wild.
What we do know, though, is that one of the models — the A2003, to be exact — was recently spotted over at GeekBench with 4GB of RAM. With OnePlus’s whole “Never Settle” motto we wouldn’t put the use of 4GB of RAM outside the realm of possibility for the OnePlus 2.
For what it’s worth, the benchmark confirms that it sports a Qualcomm octa-core chipset, though it curiously shows clock speeds of up to 1.55GHz, which we know is close to the top-end clock speed of 1.6GHz that the four Cortex-A53 cores inside the Snapdragon 810 (which was recently confirmed to be inside the OnePlus 2) boast.


It’s possible that was either a configuration error or the benchmark simply hasn’t been updated to properly read the chipset. Whatever the case may be, things are happening and we’re inching closer to that big late July reveal that should answer any and every question we have once and for all.

OnePlus 2 to cost less than $450 USD, Says CEO





There’s been rumors that the OnePlus 2 would cost more than the OnePlus One, which came in at $299 for the 16GB and $349 for the 64GB model. We had heard rumors that it would be around $500, but we are hearing today (straight from the horses mouth, so to speak) that the device will not be $500, but under $450 USD. Which usually means we are looking at a $449 price tag. However, with shipping, it’ll be a bit closer to that $500 price. That’s still considerably cheaper than the other flagships out there right now. If you look at the LG G4, HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6, you’ll notice the price for a flagship device is around $700-750. So even at $450, that’s close to half the price of their competitors.
OnePlus has been announcing specs of the upcoming device lately. And we do know that it’ll have a USB Type-C USB port, so it’ll be the first phone – maybe – to have USB Type C. It’ll also be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 version 2.1 processor. Which OnePlus has underclocked it to 1.8GHz, to keep it from overheating. This is the same version that the Sony Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z3+ have, which are overheating still. So we’ll have to wait and see if underclocking it really keeps the device from overheating. Additionally, we also know that the device is going to sport a fingerprint sensor. Which can’t really be a huge surprise, considering Google added better support for fingerprint sensors in Android M, and just about every flagship is adding one.
July 27th, that’s the date set by the company to unveil their second generation flagship. They’ll be doing it in Hong Kong, and it’ll take place at about 7pm PDT. Additionally they are doing the event in virtual reality, so you’ll be able to watch the event with your Google Cardboard, which is actually pretty neat. Wonder how many people will get sick from using cardboard for around an hour though? We’ll see on July 27th when OnePlus announces the OnePlus 2.

Official: OnePlus 2 will come with 4GB of DDR4 RAM









The OnePlus 2 is shaping up to be one killer smartphone. The company has been teasing their phone, releasing bits of information about the device as they lead up to its full July 27th reveal date. Yesterday, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that the phone will cost under $450 (and over $322), although he failed to mention if this was maybe just the base model pricing.
Today, OnePlus has revealed that the phone will come equipped with 4GB of DDR4 RAM, capable of handling just about any multitasking job you can throw at this phone. While that may sound a bit overboard, especially in Android’s current state, we’ve seen hints that Android M could bring multiple window multitasking when it launches later this year.
If peace of mind is what you’re looking for, then the OnePlus 2 should make a solid option. Doesn’t get much more future proofed than that.

OnePlus 2 AMA reveals new details: 3,300mAh battery, LTE bands, WiFi Calling, and more





There’s a OnePlus 2 hiding underneath last year’s One
Adding fuel to the hype train that is the OnePlus 2, the folks at OnePlus held an AMA in Reddit’s r/Android to talk about the phone’s upcoming launch. Normally, you would think they’d be tight lipped on anything having to do with the phone itself, but OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei and his team were surprisingly forthright, answering a good amount of questions thrown their way. So far, here’s what we know:
  • Although the OnePlus 2 will be smaller than the original One, they’ve managed to include an even bigger 3,300mAh battery this time around. For proof, they posted the above photo of the OnePlus One with the 2 underneath.
  • They didn’t give specifics, but OnePlus says the device’s camera was very important to them and has a few tricks that will set it apart from other devices.
  • Charging cable will be longer than the one that came bundled with last year’s OnePlus One (thankfully).
  • Although the OnePlus 2 will have USB Type-C, wireless charging isn’t likely (OnePlus said it wasn’t very convenient, but didn’t flat out deny anything).
  • When asked if they left anything out, OnePlus confirmed that the phone will not have a heart rate sensor.
  • When asked what they are most proud of with the upcoming OnePlus 2, co-founder Carl Pei say it’s the “design & build,” so expect a big step up from last year’s model.
  • The original OnePlus One will still be available for sale after the launch of the OnePlus 2.
  • OnePlus’ StyleSwap covers are supposedly “much much better” this time around (we’re guessing there will be more options among being easier to actually swap).
  • There will be 2 variants of the OnePlus 2: one for the US and the other for Europe carrying the following frequency bands:
    US GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/8 FDD-LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/7/8/12/17
    Europe GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/5/8 FDD-LTE: Bands: 1/3/5/7/8/20
  • The OnePlus 2 likely wont support T-Mobile WiFi Calling at launch, but that should arrive soon after via an over-the-air update.
  • OnePlus doesn’t plan on selling their Cardboard VR units after the OnePlus 2 launch.
  • The VR event for the OnePlus 2 will be available via an upcoming app.
  • When asked about the invite process, OnePlus says their “early supporters” (aka those that already purchased the original OnePlus One) will be prioritized, but failed to go into further detail.
What do you guys think so far. Can you think of anything you’d like to see on the OnePlus 2 that might influence your decision on picking one up? Anything here you’re not happy about?

OnePlus: 100 Million User Goal & OnePlus Credits For Payments





OnePlus, at the moment, are well into their launch preparations for the OnePlus 2. The event is scheduled to take place on the 27th of July and will be held in virtual reality. Over the last few weeks, the company has been releasing a ton of spec information with the latest snippet coming in yesterday and confirming the inclusion of a 3,300 mAh battery. Well, as part of the launch preparation cycle, OnePlus CEO, Carl Pei, has been doing the interview rounds and recently took part in a Skype Call with The Guardian (source link below).
During the interview, Pei makes some interesting revelations. First off and the headline-grabbing one is that the company is aiming for 100 million users as their safety net number. Of course, that will not all happen next year with the OnePlus 2 and as such, the predictions going forward include selling 2.5-3 million devices by the end of this year. This will be followed by a prediction of 5-7 million in 2016 and finally, another 10 million in 2017. So even by the end of 2017, by their own measurements they will still be well-off the 100 million total. However, that seems to be the goal number to which the company believe they can achieve and will take them to the next level. Pei also goes on to explain that the use of third-party retailers (Best Buy name-dropped) will continue to be off the cards as they look to keep the overheads low. According to Pei, using the retailers will add a further 20% on to the margin which they believe is not a viable option.
Speaking of the next level, interestingly, when talking about the future (and dropping in a mention of the OnePlus 4 and OnePlus 5), Pei talks on the vision being to obtain users and keep them. Even going as far as to say, that when a customer changes to a new OnePlus device, all their information will be available and pre-loaded on to the device. Including biometric details. Therefore, when a user opens their OnePlus 4 or OnePlus 5, the phone is ready to go, specifically for them “So next time, with the OnePlus 4 or 5 a few years down the line, when they receive the phone it’s already logged in and already has everything set up according to their preferences, already has their biometric information.” Not to mention, Pei also hints at the use of “OnePlus credits”. Which could be used to pay for services online. Uber trips being the example used in the interview “Let’s say in the future we have a platform of 10 million users, and we have OnePlus credits, and you take an Uber, you open the Uber app, you log in with your OnePlus account and you’re logged in.” Those Interested in reading in more detail can do so by hitting the source link below

MKBHD Gives Us the First Photo Taken With the OnePlus 2





OnePlus may have told us that they plan to stop the (t)rollout of features for the OnePlus 2 until the phone’s unveiling on July 27, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways for them to keep it in headlines. Take today’s appearance as an example, which comes courtesy of Marques Brownlee, the man you probably know as MKBHD. Marques has a OnePlus 2 at the moment and posted what may very well be the first public photo taken with it.
The photo is somewhat of a macro of a viewer with cityscape in the background. Of course, we get to see the fine details of the viewer as the point of focus, along with the soft bokeh in the background.
While I’m no photographer or image analyzer, I personally think the photo looks good enough and doesn’t appear to be heavily processed in a bad way, like we saw with photos taken on HTC’s One M9. It comes off a bit yellowish or warm, but that could be from the lighting at the time and location this photo was taken (at least I hope that’s its excuse). If you zoom into something like the actual binoculars, details are preserved long enough for a phone camera, in my opinion.
Outside of the actual photo, though, the EXIF data from the image does reveal some new info. This photo was taken at a 13MP resolution (4:3 ratio) and f/2.0. Who knows if Marques tweaked anything before he shot it or if he left it in auto, but f/2.0 certainly isn’t the f/1.9 we saw on the Galaxy S6 or f/1.8 from the LG G4. The 13MP resolution doesn’t bother me, but I’m sure people will point out that others in the industry are settling into 16MP and 20MP shooters.
Finally, we are getting confirmation on the model number we spotted a couple of weeks back. The OnePlus 2 is indeed the A2001.
Here is the full resolution photo, along with download link.

OnePlus 2 Will Have New and Improved Invite System






Last year OnePlus launched their first phone, appropriately titled the One, to much fanfare and plenty of criticism too. Most of this criticism didn’t get voiced against the phone, which we loved and still continue to, rather it was aimed at how OnePlus made the phone available. If you weren’t privy to what happened or just weren’t paying attention to all the OnePlus news last year, the company launched its phone very differently from other phones on the market in that it not only sold them exclusively online through its website, but that you had to have an invite to order one. Yes that’s not an invite to just get one for free or something, you couldn’t actually purchase the phone without an invite for the first 6 months or so, meaning it was just plain difficult to get one at times.
Now with the phones sequel, again aptly named the OnePlus 2, OnePlus is yet again offering the phone only by invite out of the gate. Carl Pei, the Co-Founder and Head of Global OnePlus took to the official OnePlus blog yet again and explained a little bit about the invite system and what’s going to be changing with the OnePlus 2. First off he confirmed that there will still be an invite system, but this time around they’re making some significant changes to help people get the phone easier, all while still keeping the original purpose of the invite system intact. This was done to control inventory so that the Chinese startup didn’t have tons of phones sitting in a warehouse unsold, a tactic that worked very well for the company as they pushed past the one million sold mark. Carl said inventory would be in the realm of 30-50 times higher than with the One, meaning there will be plenty of invites to send out instead of the small batches we saw for the first few months of the One.
Secondly they’re changing up how invites are passed out. When you order a OnePlus 2 it looks like you’ll be getting some physical invite cards to hand out to friends, a little gesture that’s sure to seal favor into their hearts forever. Users will also be getting sharable invitations much quicker this time around after having ordered the phone, something that again took months with the first device. As OnePlus is primarily a grassroots type of company it will of course offer some first dibs to the most active and vocal forum members, but those who aren’t as active or don’t want to take part in the official forums will be able to sign up for a reservation list where invites will be sent out on a separate basis from the forum invites. All these things are designed to make the experience of ordering a OnePlus 2, something that can only be improved over the mess that was the OnePlus One’s invite system.

OnePlus 2 is so ahead of the game, it’s now being billed as a 2016 flagship killer





OnePlus didn’t pull any punches when marketing last year’s OnePlus One as a true “flagship killer.” In some regard, it was. When compared against flagships like the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5, the One offered up more RAM, higher battery capacity, even a higher res camera (the front facing one anyway), at a price that couldn’t be beat. Of course, actually getting the opportunity to buy the phone was a different story.
OnePlus says they’ve learned a lot since launching the One last year. But no matter how stiff the competition they face this year is, it seems they’re just as confident as ever that their device will be the one to beat — not just this year, but next year as well. In a post on Twitter, the smartphone startup thanked its hardware partners while billing their device as a “2016 flagship killer.” You heard right: 2016.
“Thank you to our partners who helped make the #OnePlus2 possible! Together, we’ve created the 2016 Flagship Killer.”
Those are some pretty bold words given, like its predecessor, the OnePlus 2 is geared as a more affordable flagship, offering up a mix of great hardware at a reasonable price. The funniest part is that if the OnePlus 2 is a 2016 flagship killer, will it somehow trump next year’s OnePlus 3?
We’re not sure what else OnePlus has up their sleeves, but what we do know is the phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM, 13MP camera, fingerprint scanner, USB Type C, and a 3,300mAh battery — all for under $450. Can it be done? We wont have to wait much longer to find out. The OnePlus 2 is set to be officially unveiled on Monday, July 27th.

OnePlus 2 Alleged AnTuTu Benchmarks Show Underclocking



Thus far in the OnePlus saga the Chinese company has used chipsets from highly acclaimed chipset maker Qualcomm. The name Qualcomm has been around ever since the dawn of cell phones, and using their experience have crafted some of the finest chipsets in mobile history. Last year with the OnePlus One we saw the Chinese manufacturer use the Snapdragon 801, a supercharged version of the chipset found in phones from the end of 2013. This year OnePlus is using the latest from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 810, based on a completely new 64-bit architecture from the company. But all has not been well with the Snapdragon 810, and if you’ve been following up play-by-play with the drama from the chipset you might remember that it’s a little prone to overheating at times.
While OnePlus assured us they’re using the latest version of the chipset, version 2.1, which is designed to prevent overheating and under-performing as we had seen it intially, other phones with the Snapdragon 810 v2.1 are still running into the overheating issue. While there are many ways to combat this problem it seems that OnePlus may be running the chipset a little slower than other manufacturers, better known as underclocking it. This would keep it from being as fast in peak moments as other competitor’s implementations of the same chipset but could keep it from getting as hot and ultimately having to significantly slow down, sort of like the tortuous and the hare kind of situation where the seemingly slower one wins in the end because of consistency.
Leaked AnTuTu scores allegedly for the OnePlus 2 are painting this picture for us and showing us just what OnePlus might be doing with their upcoming phone, set to be unveiled in just a week’s time from today. Looking at the score breakdown we’ve run AnTuTu on our OnePlus One’s here and come up with similar results to the alleged OnePlus 2, with the biggest differences being between CPU computational components and 3D graphics rendering performance, both in favor of the OnePlus 2. What’s not seemingly in favor of the OnePlus 2 is the multi-tasking performance and the single-thread performance, both of which under-perform when compared to last year’s flagship killer. Whether or not these benchmarks are 100% legit or even using final builds of OxygenOS is not something we can know right now, but we’ll be sure to give you final numbers in a week’s time!

OnePlus 2 Nighttime Photos Show Victory Over iPhone 6



We’ve come a very long way since the days of the first smartphone cameras, but even with all that progress the camera in the latest flagship phone is still a huge consideration for many people. As a whole most smartphones nowadays feature cameras that are a replacement for the cameras many used to use, often taking better pictures than cheaper dedicated point and shoot cameras of yesteryear and significantly better video to say the least. That doesn’t mean we still don’t want to see an improvement over the current crop of phones, which often have great difficulty in situations where bright light isn’t present. Night time modes are often a highlight for phone manufacturers that have specialized camera sensors equipped to handle these sorts of difficult lighting situations, and while OnePlus had some tricks up its sleeve last year with slow shutter mode, that wasn’t exactly practical for taking better pictures in every situation.
This year it looks like OnePlus is switching from a Sony to a Toshiba sensor if the latest round of rumors are correct, and even possibly that it could feature a dual-camera configuration. This combined with switching to the in-house developed OxygenOS might mean more optimizations for the camera department, something that OnePlus is all too willing to show the world before it even officially shows off the device in exactly one week from today. Posting over at the official Chinese OnePlus forums, OnePlus took to the streets with a OnePlus 2 and an Apple iPhone 6 which is widely considered to be one of the best cameras on a phone you can buy.
OnePlus tested the night time shots for this specific situation and it looks like the OnePlus 2 absolutely kills the iPhone 6 in every scenario to say the least. Not only is there significantly more detail on every object thanks to the higher resolution of the camera, but everything in the scene is just plain easier to make out. There’s significantly less noise on the OnePlus 2’s photos, and even in the shot where there’s quite a bit of light you can make out much more detail and less noise on the OnePlus 2 shot. This shows a great balance between not being afraid to move to a higher ISO, as evidenced in every single shot when comparing to the iPhone 6, but also a great software algorithm that’s designed to reduce noise while still keeping details high. This is surely exciting stuff for potential OnePlus 2 owners as the device is set to launch soon! Check out the full gallery of shots below.

OnePlus 2 On Oppomart Lists 5.5″ 2K Screen & 16MP Camera



With just over a week to go until OnePlus launches their follow-up device to the OnePlus One, the OnePlus 2, the speculation around the device is massive. Of course, OnePlus has not been shy in letting the world know what is coming with the OnePlus 2 and have been periodically releasing detailed specs prior to the launch. As such, a number of the main specs have already been confirmed. That said, not everything is known and there are still a number of questions waiting to be answered.
Well, online retailer Oppomart have begun listing the OnePlus 2 on their site. To be clear, the listing was noted a few days ago, although at the time a number of the specs were incorrect including the RAM count. However, it now seems that the listing has been revised and some of the changes make for interesting reading. The first thing to note is that Oppomart are listing the OnePlus 2 for $499. This is much higher than what the device is expected to be, as OnePlus did already confirmed the OnePlus 2 will not cost more than $450. As such, the price, although higher, is unlikely to be representative of the final launch price. In terms of the specs being listed by Oppomart, the OnePlus 2 will come sporting a 5.5-inch display. This is the same size at that on the current OnePlus One and is one of the main points changed from the previous listing which suggested a 5.7-inch display. Again, OnePlus did confirm that the new unit is slightly smaller than the One and if the 5.5-inch size is correct, then this means the bezels have indeed been shaved down while maintaining the same screen size. The other important aspect to note, is that the screen is listed as a 2K display sporting a 2560 x 1440 resolution.
Moving on, the Oppomart listing confirms the already known inclusion of 4GB RAM, the Snapdragon 810 processor, a 3,300 mAh battery, dual-SIM support and the fingerprint scanner. Interestingly though, the camera specs listed include a 16-megapixel rear camera. This is higher than what had been ‘leaked’ in a recent camera review which suggested the camera was only 13-megapixels (same as the One). The front facing camera is listed as 5-megapixel (again consistent with what is on offer with the One). In terms of memory, the device is listed available in 32 and 64GB variants (same as the One) and the device will be available in black and white color variants (same as the One). Of course, this does not represent a confirmation of the specs as the listing could be based on what is known as well as what is expected. Not to mention, they have already changed once in the last week already. Either way, wth the launch only a few days away, it won’t be long until these are either confirmed or disproved.

This could be our first real look at the OnePlus 2, complete with a physical home button









The OnePlus 2 is slowly making its way through regulatory approvals, so it’s not much of a surprise that we’re starting to see shots of the thing turn up. Its latest appearance — thanks to the meticulous folks at China’s TENAA certification program — might be our clearest and most accurate yet, though, and it actually reveals a hardware feature we didn’t previously know about.

A home button! We’d say it’s an odd departure from the OnePlus One’s full on-screen navigation setup, but we officially know the OnePlus 2 will have a fingerprint scanner and we’re sure the home button will look to enable that.
Unfortunately we’re not yet sure if that means we’ll be getting capacitive touch buttons for recent apps and back. The leak also gives us a good look at the device’s side profile, and it’s looking pretty damn thin and sleek from where we stand.

The back of the device is pretty chill as well, with your usual camera and dual-tone flash sitting above a OnePlus logo. We also see an extra slit beneath the camera which could turn out to be an infrared blaster.

The mysteries won’t last long, thankfully, as OnePlus is holding a reveal event next week, July 27th at 7PM Eastern. We’ll be delivering all the details you crave so be sure to circle right back for the goods!

This is the OnePlus 2





We're mere hours away from the big OnePlus 2 reveal, however the next flagship phone from the upstart manufacturer has already been unveiled in its entirety by a poster over on the Android Central forums.

AC forums poster chinaleakking has outed the OnePlus 2 in what appears to be a series of professionally-shot photos of the phone. They show a handset with a metal frame, the promised fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port and rear-mounted speakers. Power and volume keys are found over on the right, while there's what looks like a mute switch over on the left. Behind the textured back panel there's a dual SIM slot, as promised.
The poster also offers some of his own thoughts on the OnePlus 2, comparing it unfavorably with the original One because of its appearance and OxygenOS software. However the OIS-equipped camera — previously revealed as a 13-megapixel unit, allegedly works well.
Of course, what the phone looks like is only part of the story, and we won't have long to wait until the final pieces fall into place. In the meantime, check out the OnePlus 2 in all its glory in the gallery below, and be sure to share your thoughts down in the comments!

OnePlus 2 officially announced in five materials for $389








The much-hyped sequel to the OnePlus One is finally official. OnePlus’ announcement for the OnePlus 2 has just wrapped up, and now we have every last bit of information about this device. They’ve built upon the success from last years model with another great-looking and powerful device for Android fans. Let’s take a look at what it has to offer.
OnePlus 2 Specs

As we’ve come to expect from a OnePlus device, the OnePlus 2 is spec’d out to the gills. There are two models that are essentially the same, except for RAM and storage. Here’s everything you care about:
  • Display: 5.5-inch, LCD, 1080p
    Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
    RAM: 4GB / 3GB LPDDR4
    Storage: 64 GB/16GB
    Camera: 13MP, 5MP front, 4K video recording
    Battery: 3,300 mAh
    USB: Type-C
    OS: OxygenOS Android 5.1
Other specs you might care about include fingerprint sensor, 720p slow-motion video recording, LED notification light, alert slider, and dual nano SIM cards.
OnePlus 2 Design


OnePlus has made a mig deal about the design and build of this device. It’s made of an aluminum-magnesium alloy frame and “jewelry-grade” stainless steel accents. They’ve packed some next-gen features into the device, such as fingerprint sensor and USB Type-C cables. On the side of the device is a unique “Alert Slider” for putting the device into different notification modes.
The biggest design feature you’ll notice is the StyleSwap back covers. By default the OnePlus 2 comes in the typical black sandstone, but you can swap that out for kevlar, black apricot, bamboo, or rosewood for $27 a piece. This was something OnePlus promised with last years model, but it never became available.
OnePlus 2 Pricing and Availability

As mentioned above, there are technically two models of the OnePlus 2. The 64GB model with 4GB of RAM will be available with an invite in the US and Europe starting August 11 for $389. The 16GB model with 3GB of RAM will be available later for $329. If you’re feeling lucky you can tune in to OnePlus’ social media channels starting August 1st for a chance to get an invite.
OnePlus seems to have done a bang-up job with the OnePlus 2. A worthy successor to one of last year’s surprising devices. Will you be signing up to get an OnePlus 2 invite? If you get the invite will you follow through and buy it?

OnePlus 2 Hands-On: So Good, It Makes Me Want To Leave Verizon




One year ago, the OnePlus One became the best off-contract smartphone you could buy. An unheard of Chinese company managed to deliver a high-quality Android handset for a crazy-low $300 price. Now, it looks like that awesomeness wasn’t a fluke. Behold: the OnePlus 2.

Left: old and busted. Right: new hotness
Starting at $330, the new OnePlus 2 is only a hair more expensive than the original, and yet it’s improved in so many ways I barely know where to begin. Hell, it might be faster to tell you what’s missing: it doesn’t have a gorgeous 2K screen or wireless charging like the Galaxy S6, and it doesn’t have a removable SD card, battery, or fancy manual camera controls like the LG G4.
Oh, and there’s no stylus. You weren’t expecting a stylus, were you?

Got all that? Then it’s time to talk about just how beastly this phone actually is. 8-core Snapdragon 810 processor? Check. LTE? Check. Two nano-SIMs for hopping carriers? You bet. USB Type-C so you’re ready for the future of charging? Definitely. A fingerprint reader? Yep! Plus a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel OmniVision camera with optical image stabilization and laser focusing, and up to 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM.
Yet the most impressive parts of the OnePlus One have little to do with specs. They’re about how this phone feels. (It feels excellent.)


Chassis

The moment you touch this phone, you won’t believe it costs just $330. Why? Because in terms of materials and build quality, it’s only a stone’s throw away from the best you can buy: Samsung, LG and HTC devices that cost hundreds more.
If you turned up your nose at last year’s OnePlus One because it was made of plastic, you’ll do a double-take when a OnePlus 2 shows up. The only plastic you’ll find on this sucker is the flexible kind you’ll find when you pry up the removable rear cover. No more shitty plastic buttons, either: it’s all precise, tactile metal for your power button, volume rocker, and (my personal favorite) three-way mute switch. More on that later.
The metal does make the phone nearly half an ounce heavier (at 6.17 ounces) and it’s nearly half a millimeter thicker (at 9.85mm) but I didn’t find myself minding one bit. It’s also a millimeter shorter in both directions, and I actually think it may improve the ergonomics. The One was a bit wide for my tastes; the 2 fits easier into my hand.
I do kind of miss the metal lip that gave the OnePlus One a distinct look even from the front, but the 2 still keeps the same spirit with a chamfered metal edge beneath its Gorilla Glass. Depending on the size of your hand, it might still add a little bit of grip.


But glass and metal is only half the story when it comes to tactile delight. The rest comes in the form of the OnePlus’s optional $27 rear covers, which use actual wood (bamboo, rosewood, black apricot) or Kevlar for a really awesome look and feel. Even stock, the OnePlus 2’s “sandstone black” rear cover feels pretty great (and definitely far grippier and grittier than the one on the original phone) but real Kevlar or bamboo is where it’s at.




I’ve gotta say the Kevlar’s my favorite so far, but I could actually see myself buying more than one and swapping ‘em out after a while. It’s a level of personalization we’ve never really seen in a smartphone before: even with the Moto X, which let you color-coordinate your phone when you bought it direct from the factory, you’d be forever stuck with your choices.
Screen

The screen is pretty much always the most important part of a smartphone. I don’t need to tell you this, because you’re probably reading this article by swiping on a smartphone screen right now. And the original OnePlus One’s screen was, how-do-we-say, not particularly wonderful. I vividly remember taking pictures side by side with the Xiaomi Mi Note and the OnePlus One a few months back—two phones with the exact same Sony camera sensor—and wondering why the pictures seemed so much worse on the OnePlus. It turned out that it was actually just the screen, which looked washed out.

Well, the 1080p LCD screen on the OnePlus 2 is bright and beautiful by comparison. The company claims it reaches 600 nits of brightness, more than the iPhone 6 Plus. Personally, I don’t think it’s anywhere near as gorgeous as the 2K OLED screens you’ll find on a Samsung Galaxy S6 or as glassy and smooth as some of Apple’s displays—I can definitely see rows of pixels if I look close—but for a $330 phone it’s outrageously good.

Camera

And speaking of the camera, it’s way the heck better as well. While I definitely didn’t get to take enough shots to tell how it stacks up against an iPhone 6 Plus, Galaxy S6, LG G4 or Lumia 1020—the smartphone camera elite—the OnePlus 2’s new 13-megapixel Omnivision sensor is perhaps the clearest evidence yet that megapixels mean nothing. Same number of megapixels as the previous phone, but WAY better images right out of the box.
Here are a couple of 100% crops from the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 in good light. Just look how much less noise and how much more detail you see in the image on the right.

And impressively, the image from the OnePlus 2 was half the filesize. Here are the originals:


Have to say the OnePlus 2 pic is lacking a bit of contrast, though. The darker regions look super dull and grey.
Here are a couple pics showing off the improved dynamic range, likely thanks to the larger pixels in the camera sensor:


Just look how much more you can see in the bright and dark regions of the image. (You might have to click the magnifying glass and download the picture to zoom in.)
Sadly, the camera doesn’t have any manual controls or RAW image support, though OnePlus says both are coming in a future update.
The Catches

So if this phone is so great, why don’t you go ahead and order it on August 11th, the day the phone comes out? Particularly since—like the last OnePlus phone—it’s invite only, the company has limited stock, and there’s no guarantee how quickly they’ll make more?
Well, there are the usual review caveats. We’ve barely tested this device. We haven’t even tried to make a phone call with it, let alone use apps for longer than a few minutes. (They seemed to run smoothly, but isn’t that true of all new phones these days?) We haven’t tried to take a lot of pictures in challenging environments, and we have no idea if the (slightly larger 3300mAh battery) will still put up a fight given the new processor and bright new screen. The new fingerprint reader felt awesome and quick and accepted my fingerprint from any angle, but who can say whether it’ll be reliable in a pinch without more testing?
Also: though it sure looks like it, this phone doesn’t actually use stock Android 5.1 Lollipop, and isn’t guaranteed to get new updates quickly. Instead, it uses OxygenOS, a customized version that allows for pretty cool tweaks like drawing a symbol on the screen to turn on the flashlight even when the screen is off, or connecting to a new wifi network right from the notification tray, and that cool three-position mute switch that can let you mute everything, nothing, or just allow notifications from your primary contacts to come through.
But without more testing, it’s hard to say whether the OS is stable and whether it’s really, truly better than the pure Google version.

And the number one: if you’re on Verizon or Sprint, you can’t use this phone at all. It’s got LTE that’s compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile, but no CDMA for the other big networks.
It’s got an awesome futureproof new USB Type-C port for charging, but that means none of your micro-USB cables will work. You’ll need new ones ($5 each for OnePlus’s cool new reversible cable, which is admittedly a pretty good deal.)

And if you want to pay only $330, you’ll have to wait even longer: as of August 11th, only the $390 model with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM will be on sale.
If I’m being a good, unbiased journalist, I’d say wait for the reviews. But personally, I have to wonder if it’s time to leave Verizon and give it a go. After the OnePlus One, the Nexus 5 and the Sony Z3 Compact, I’m tired of missing out on great unlocked Android phones.

Over 300,000 people have already registered for the OnePlus 2









Later tonight we’ll finally learn everything there is to know about the OnePlus 2. Even though we don’t know all the details yet, people are still very excited for this device. Over 300,000 people have already registered to receive an invite for the device. Signing up doesn’t even guarantee you’ll get an invite. The list is just to have a chance “if any are left unused.”
If you’re looking for the definition of #hype you’ve found it. Over 300,000 people are on a list just so they can get invited to buy a device. OnePlus has done a great job at creating excitement for their devices. The OnePlus One was a great device with that was maligned by some PR fiascos, but the invite system created a ton of buzz. Can OnePlus deliver again with the sequel? We’ll have more for you tonight!

Hands-on with OxygenOS 2.0 on the OnePlus 2 [VIDEO]







The OnePlus 2 is the first phone to launch with OxygenOS out of the box. As usual, OnePlus boasted a lot about the greatness of their own OS. We were able to test it for ourselves to see if it lives up to the hype. OxygenOS is based on Android 5.1.1. It looks a lot like stock Lollipop, but OnePlus has plenty of extras packed in. Check out the video below to see OxygenOS 2.0 in action.

OxygenOS can easily be summed up as a cross between stock Lollipop and CyanogenMod. For the most part it looks like your basic Nexus software, but little improvements and changes here and there add a lot. Things like gestures, softkey control, a dark theme, custom LED notification colors, app permissions, and more. The launcher is also very interesting. It takes the idea of HTC Blinkfeed and makes it much more useful. We’re really liking what we see in OxygenOS.

OnePlus 2 vs. OnePlus One: Quick Comparison





This day wouldn’t be complete without a quick comparison of the OnePlus 2 to the original OnePlus One, would it? We have that for you below.
In this short video, we didn’t spend time running through benchmarks or showing you the major software differences (we’ll save that for our review) from one phone to the next. Instead, we really just wanted to show you a side-by-side hardware and design comparison to get the ball rolling.
You can see that these phones still look very similar, but the OnePlus 2 has been given the premium treatment with a metal frame, some added weight, an upgraded camera, and a fingerprint scanner that doubles as a home button. Next to each other, the untrained eye may not be able to tell the difference, but there are indeed plenty of changes for this year’s OnePlus phone.
OnePlus One owners, is this enough of an upgrade?
