Just when we thought we wouldn’t get any more information on the OnePlus 2’s hardware, more details up the upcoming flagship surface. This time around, the OnePlus 2 appeared on OPPOMART, an online smartphone retailer. With a price tag of US$499 (about RM1,900) – higher than the price OnePlus has promised earlier, the listed specifications include an unofficial 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution display.
Interestingly, OPPOMART had a different set of specifications for the OnePlus 2 when it first appeared on the site. Previously, the online retailer listed a 5.7-inch display instead of a 5.5-inch panel. Other than that, it is now listing 4GB of RAM instead of 3GB.
This could indicate that there will be a different variant of the OnePlus 2 with a 5.7-inch display and 3GB of RAM. After all, we have spotted as many as three different variants of the OnePlus 2, one of which has 3GB of RAM instead of 4GB as revealed by OnePlus itself. That being said, this is only an educated guess at this point in time.
In any case, other specifications revealed through this leak include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, a 16MP rear camera with a Sony IMX234 sensor, a 5MP front-facing camera, dual SIM support, a 3,300mAh battery, and LTE connectivity. The 16MP rear camera is rather interesting as Marques Brownlee (or MKBHD) has confirmed that it is a 13MP shooter instead.
If these specifications are the OnePlus 2’s finalised hardware, we’re looking at a pretty interesting flagship. Many OnePlus fans thought that the OnePlus 2 would have a 1080p display; bumping up the resolution to 2K might strain the already controversial Snapdragon 810 processor. We’ll find out more as the OnePlus 2 is launched on the 28th of July 2015.
