OnePlus have finally unveiled the successor to their flagship killer in the form of the OnePlus 2, after a number of (controlled?) leaks began surfacing around the web. OnePlus have taken the details of what worked well with the 1+1 and have come up with a top spec’d 1+2 at a budget price.

You may notice the lack of NFC from the OnePlus 2, which might seem like a strange omission given the other future-proofing specs on the device such as USB Type-C. It also doesn’t have Quick Charge but does have a fingerprint sensor, dual Nano-SIM slots, and 720p slow-motion video capture.
OnePlus 2 Design
The aluminium-magnesium chassis houses the 1080p display as well as a USB Type-C charging port, together with an “Alert Slider” dedicated button on the side of the device that allows the notification mode to be quickly changed.
By default, the OnePlus 2 comes with a typical black sandstone rear shell, but you can swap that out for kevlar, black apricot, bamboo, or rosewood for $27 a piece – something that never made it to the OnePlus One model.
OnePlus 2 Availability
The 64GB OnePlus 2 model with 4GB of RAM will be available with an invite in the US and Europe starting August 11 for $389. The 16GB model with 3GB of RAM will be available later for $329. You’ll of course need an invite to get a model, but be sure to join the reservation list for an increased chance in getting yours.
