OnePlus Two Details Leak Out, Could Feature Laser Focus Fingerprint tech!

by Linus 4

OnePlus is one of those companies, which managed to bring a lot of hype to the western world, which does not always happen with all the Chinese companies. After teasing the OnePlus One as the “Flagship Killer” for some time it got attention from many tech enthusiasts around the globe. However, it has been quite a while since the One was launched and right now we are into the OnePlus Two rumours mill.

It seems that the company is pretty confident about itself and it is ready to go toe to toe with the biggest players in the marker or even overcome them. This time around, the leaked features suggest that the device will have something interesting called a laser focus fingerprint identification embedded in the home button.

What is more, the front of the device will look similar to the Oppo Find 7, which does not surprise us as the OnePlus One looks very similar to the latter smartphone.

Also, there will be regular capacitive Android 5.0 buttons on the sides.

As far as availability goes, the device is said to come out in Q3 this year. What we hope is that the company will be more mature and get rid of the controversial marketing ideas. Also, we hope that OnePlus will have their production lines in tact and there will be no more invite system.

Furthermore, other rumours as well as the recent interviews with the top executives of the company suggest that the OnePlus Two will be more expensive. It is a natural consequence as the OnePlus One was the part of the marketing strategy to sell the device nearly at the cost. In addition, the device may not have neither the Micro SD nor removable battery, nor the wireless charging technology. Finally, the company is said to stick to the reliable Snapdragon chips (most likely 810) for the upcoming device.

As the rumour mill has already heated up, stay tuned for more news to come!

    The invite system is a crucial element to the low pricing.
    It is not a gimmick. It is a way to stay clear of control by the big carriers.
    Only producing inventory that is sold and accounted for, instead of the lies of the telcos.

      It’s easy to buy from other online store, but only Chinese version with CM

    From what I’ve heard, One Plus have apparently confirmed they are going to keep prices relatively low. Obviously it will be more than the original phone, but not by much. What would set it apart from other phones if they were to give it a premium price?

    Hopefully they will be able to produce a decent quantity of handsets to keep the supply chain stocked and keep up with demand, I fully understand their reasoning for the invite system (keeping stock levels down and allowing them to take advantage of lowering component costs), but this time around they need to be in a better position to capitalise on buyers wanting to hand over their money.
    Perhaps they could release the phones at a slightly higher price point to allow them to cover the additional early setup costs of a new handset and then as hardware prices drop, either lower the price or upgrade the specs.
    What will be interesting to see is how the whole OS palaver will go down this time, will they fully kick Cyanogen to the kerb? will they only allow their oxygenos? or will they release all of the kernel resources so that devs can make and improve roms?

    Spec wise I think that it would be silly to start guessing now as by the time the handset is released in Q3 the available chips and minimum specs for flagship phones should be a lot higher than it is currently.
