In less than a week of its official unveiling, the OnePlus 2 has appeared in SIRIM database. With the model number “A2003”, this could possibly be the highest-end model that features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Based on a previous leak that shows the benchmark scores of the A2003 OnePlus 2, it is clearly stated that it has 4GB of RAM. Coupled with the fact that the “lower-end” 16GB model with 3GB of RAM will only be made available at a later time, it’s highly likely that we’ll be getting the 64GB OnePlus 2 first.
Touted as the “2016 Flagship Killer” (you can read our comparison of the OnePlus 2 against other 2015 flagships here), the OnePlus 2 doesn’t exactly have the best specifications on paper. Under its hood is the controversial Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor paired with 3GB or 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 16GB or 64GB of non-expandable storage, a fingerprint sensor, and a 3,300mAh battery. It also has a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution display instead of a 2K panel that many other flagship devices are equipped with.
In the camera department, it has a 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus and optical image stabilisation. It also has a 5MP front-facing shooter. If previous comparisons of the OnePlus 2’s camera performance are to be believed, the company has drastically improved this aspect of the device. Time will only tell if this is the case, however.
With a retail price of US$389 (about RM1,490) for the 64GB model, the OnePlus 2 could be made available through Maxis; as it is the case with the OnePlus One. Chances are, we could get our hands on the OnePlus 2 before the scheduled Q4 2015 availability; a welcome change over the long wait for its predecessor.
