Toggle switches aren’t Android’s thing, and are usually associated with the iPhones. OnePlus however wants to change that, and with the OnePlus 2 it has introduced a new ‘Alert Slider’.
The name hints at the button’s functionality, and essentially lets users toggle between the kind of notification alerts they want at any given time. It is a three-stage button to quickly flip through options like ‘None’, ‘Priority’ and ‘All’. The handset acknowledges your choice of notification alert with a subtle vibration.
OnePlus launched its latest flagship today, which goes on sale on August 11 exclusively via Amazon India. The 64GB variant is priced at Rs 24,999 and the company also plans to launch a 16GB variant later on, which will be priced at Rs 22,999.
As far as specifications are concerned, the OnePlus 2 flaunts a 5.5-inch 1080p In-Cell display, and is powered by an improved Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. The 16GB variant though features 3GB of RAM.
The smartphone also features a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS and laser autofocus, 5-megapixel selfie snapper, 3,300mAh battery, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. On the software front, it runs on Android Lollipop-based Oxygen OS.
