Rumors also claim that unlike some of the flagships that boast QHD displays, OnePlus 2 is likely to stick to a 5.5-inch full HD display. Under the hood it has been revealed that the flagship will be powered by a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor. OnePlus revealed that it has been working closely with Qualcomm engineers to optimize the processor for performance as well as overcoming the heating issues. OnePlus also revealed that the processor will be paired with 4GB of RAM.
On the photography front, the OnePlus 2 is expected to feature a combination of 13-megapixel camera at the back and a 5-megapixel snapper up front. The rear camera is likely to be accompanied by optical image stabilization (OIS), and laser autofocus similar to what has been seen on LG s flagships.
Furthermore, OnePlus has also revealed that the smartphone will feature a 3,300mAh battery, USB Type-C connector, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, and LTE support. It will also feature a fingerprint sensor integrated into the home button on the front. The company further boasts that it is one of the most advanced scanners out there and is much faster than iPhone s TouchID sensor.
