After announcing that the OnePlus 2 will be the first flagship to use the USB Type C port, the company took to Twitter and its forum to share some images of the cable. The images show off the USB Type C cable with its stunning red and white design complete with the OnePlus logo, just like the OnePlus One cable.

The pictures confirm that the cable takes a lot of inspiration from its predecessor, and there is little change in terms of design. It has the similar red and white combination complete with the OnePlus logo, the similar flat wire design, and the same white clip that helps users keep it bundled neatly and not let the wire get tangled up.
All in all, the cable is visually very similar to its predecessor except for one big change, the USB Type C port at the end. It will now effectively enable ease in plugging, and also gives OEMs the ability to build thinner smartphones as the port takes up less space. OnePlus is being a big tease, and is unveiling the OnePlus 2 in compartments, one of them being tonight itself. Yesterday, OnePlus said that they would unveil something new about the OnePlus 2, and here’s what we think it could be.
OnePlus has already revealed that the OnePlus 2 will be powered by an improved version of Snapdragon 810 chipset, and will be priced upwards of $322 (Rs 20,540 approximately).
From what we have heard so far, it could flaunt a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, 3GB of RAM, 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, and on the software front, Android 5.1 Lollipop (wrapped under Oxygen OS in India/Hydrogen OS in China) out-of-the-box. While there is still no word on a launch date, reports generating out of China claim that the OnePlus 2 could be launched as early as next month.
