The OnePlus 2 will be available for purchase via an open sale on October 12 between 12 noon to 1PM, without the need for an invite. This isn’t surprising as without disclosing much the company had earlier promised an open sale for the device in either late September or early October.
A world-first VR launch, putting India on its priority list and a jaw-dropping price, the OnePlus 2 made a well thought entry into the Indian market. It is available in 16GB and 64GB variants priced at Rs 22,999 and Rs 24,999, respectively, and seems like a perfect blend of elegance and solid specs.
With the OnePlus 2, the company has built a device that will be competing with the likes of the Google Nexus 6P and others. In fact, the superior specs sheet at an comparatively lower price gives it an edge over the other flagships.
Design-wise, the metal-frame design makes it look premium. It sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display. As promised, the smartphone also comes with a fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port. The fingerprint scanner is faster than the iPhone TouchID and lets you save up to five fingerprints, says OnePlus.
On the camera front, it comes with a 13-megapixel snapper. It also gets a new camera and a new solution that allows you to take 50MP photos and there’s also the slow motion mode. It comes powered by Snapdragon 810 coupled with 4GB of RAM and houses a 3,300mAh battery.
