Later this month, on July 27, [url=http://www.phonearena.com/news/The-OnePlus-2-is-coming-official-virtual-reality-launch-event-will-be-held-on-July-27th_id70848]OnePlus will finally announce[/url] a successor to last year’s [url=http://www.phonearena.com/phones/OnePlus-One_id8603]OnePlus One[/url] smartphone. The new handset will be called [url=http://www.phonearena.com/news/OnePlus-CEO-teases-a-full-metal-build-for-the-upcoming-OnePlus-2_id71102]OnePlus 2[/url], and we already know that it [url=http://www.phonearena.com/news/OnePlus-2s-price-will-be-higher-than-322_id70598]will be more expensive[/url] than the first OnePlus smartphone (which was released for prices starting at $299). However, the new smartphone will still not be as expensive as most flagships out there.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau today confirmed that the “OnePlus 2 will be priced under $450.” It remains to be seen whether this means the handset will cost $449.99, or less.
It’s said that the new OnePlus flagship will have a metal-made body (unlike the OnePlus One, which is a polycarbonate-made device) and a display measuring 5.5 inches, or maybe 5.7 inches. The new smartphone will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, featuring a fingerprint scanner, 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and possibly [url=http://www.phonearena.com/news/New-OnePlus-2-sketches-reveal-features-of-the-sequel-including-a-duo-camera-set-up_id71079]a dual rear camera[/url].
Not long ago, we revealed a couple of images that allegedly showed the OnePlus 2 (see below), but we can’t be sure of their authenticity just yet.
