The OnePlus One had a single SIM slot, but with the OnePlus 2 the company has decided to upgrade to dual-SIM support. This feature could prove to be a significant deal breaker for many users. The report, however, does not offer any clarity on whether the OnePlus 2 will come with a microSD card slot or not. Also Read - OnePlus 6 Alert Slider button likely to let users adjust camera focus

As far as rumors are concerned, the OnePlus 2 may sport a slimmer full metal body. It is likely to feature a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display. Leaked sketches hint at a possible dual-camera setup at the back, and a Bluetooth certification filing claims that the OnePlus 2 could be available in three variants.
Additionally, the OnePlus 2 may sport a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, just like its predecessor. According to Youtuber Marques Brownlee, the camera has a maximum aperture of f/2.0, with laser autofocus and comes with different shooting modes like clear shot, beauty and HDR mode. It shoots 4K video, and in 720p for slow motion videos.
Running up to the launch, the company has even launched a secret Operation Comrade in India to build the hype around the OnePlus 2.
