The OnePlus 2 has been officially announced

The OnePlus has officially revealed its next smartphone, the OnePlus 2, dubbed the ‘2016 flagship killer'. The new device features an aluminium build, comes with a finger print scanner along with the usual high-end phone specs you would expect on any flagship Android smartphone.

The OnePlus 2 will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, though there are upgrades to a model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage if you need the extra space. The phone comes with Oxygen OS installed, something that we have known about for quite a while following OnePlus' falling out with Cyanogen. The ROM is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Like last year's model, the OnePlus 2 comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, which should theoretically help save on battery life while other flagship makers make the jump to 1440p. there is also a 13 megapixel rear facing camera with optical image stabilisation, dual LED flash and a f/2.0 lens.

Dual-SIM is supported and for charging, you will be using a USB-Type C port, which is set to become the new standard in the future. The OnePlus 2 is still a good deal as well, coming in at £239 for the 16GB model and £289 for the 64GB variant. Though, you will need an invite to buy one, which may be difficult as over 500,000 people are now on the reservation list.

KitGuru Says: The OnePlus 2 is finally here, although it might be a while before people actually start receiving their pre-orders. Are any of you thinking about getting a OnePlus 2 this year? Are you sticking with your current device?

  1. One of the 200,000 on the list, managed to jump in a little earlier than some others. Hopefully the fact I own the One should help speed up the process. Certainly going for the 64GB again, that 4GB RAM will be AMAZING, plus the fingerprint scanner does it for me, have you seen how quick that thing is?

  2. If I get an Invite (somewhere under the first 100,00 on the Reservation List) I’ll upgrade for sure (currently using the OnePlus One)
