The Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has been dominating the rumor mills lately with its upcoming OnePlus 2 smartphone, the successor of the original OnePlus.
Since the phone is trending worldwide, various reports have disclosed its allegedly technical specifications and shared images that display the actual handset. Though, it is a fact and not a rumor, that the much-anticipated smartphone will be having a Type-C USB port on board – a feature most flagship phones are expected to bring this year.
The company itself broke the news on Facebook, by posting a well-designed image marked with big red letters:
“The OnePlus Two port… Type-C”
So it is pretty safe to assume that micro-USB ports have finally been dethroned by this new technology.
Reports claim that the second generation OnePlus will pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip, housing four cores, each clocked at 2GHz, along with Adreno 430 GPU. Underneath the hood the Two will ostensibly deliver 3GB of RAM and two non-expandable storage editions; 16 and 64 gigs.
In terms of cameras, on the back we are expecting a 16MP primary sensor (5312 x 2988 pixels), shooting 2K video, with auto-focus and dual LED flash. The selfie camera will quite possibly be a 5MP shooter recording full HD video – very impressive for a secondary camera.
The OnePlus Two will most likely rock a 5.5-inch LTPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, with full high definition resolution covered by corning Gorilla Glass 4 for ultimate anti-scratch protection. Sources close to the company also suggest that the phone will be relatively heavy compared to the competition, weighing around 170 grams- 6oz.
Relying on last year’s release, the upcoming phone will be unveiled during the third-quarter of this year and will be rolled out to the public before Christmas. It is also confirmed that the handset will be coming with Android 5.1.1 – the latest version of Lolipop- straight out of the box with CyanogenMod user interface on board.
