The long awaited OnePlus 2 to be launched, the successor of OnePlus One, on Tuesday, July 28. It has also released the launch app of OnePlus 2 on the Google Play Store for its launch event tomorrow at 7.30 am. Users can download this app on their Android devices. Users who have the Google Cardboard or OnePlus VR cardboard can watch the VR launch and who doesn’t have it can follow the regular launch stream available online.
Similar to its predecessor, it is expected that OnePlus 2 to be affordable and also likely to take the smartphone market by storm. Hours before the launch, the GFXBench benchmarking tool has revealed the specifications of OnePlus 2 online already.
The latest revelations suggest that the smartphone to feature Snapdragon 810 SoC and 64GB storage space. The RAM of the device would be 4GB (measured as 3.6GB on the results page). If the reports are to be believed the OnePlus 2 smartphone would be the first handset and also would be placed at upper echelons of powerful smartphones.
The earlier revelation claims that the handset focuses on the camera performances by posting the camera samples of the upcoming handset. Moreover, the company has offered users a first camera performance comparison between the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S6 and the OnePlus 2.
It is been considered that the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6 are the two of the best camera phones in the market, although, the comparison was not unexpected. The micro shots are compared between OnePlus 2 and the Galaxy S6, while, pitting the OnePlus 2 against the iPhone 6 in a night pictures test.
According to Phone Arena, it is expected that a 13-megapixel main camera to be featured in OnePlus 2, without optical image stabilization (OIS).
The OnePlus 2 also comes with a range of connectivity options such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, but it apparently won’t come with NFC (Near Field Communication). It seems that contactless payments are out of the question. However, a decent idea of what hardware is expected from the OnePlus 2, although there are some discrepancies.
For instance the display is listed as 1920 x 1080 13.7-inch behemoth, apparently the company might surprise us by launching a tablet/ phablet, and however, we’d assume this is an error – as we’re expecting a slightly more sensible 5.5-inch display.
So, these specs might not be completely accurate, but the good news is that we should get official confirmation early tomorrow.
