OnePlus will be unveiling its flagship smartphone, the “OnePlus 2,” on July 27 -- interestingly, using virtual reality. The company dispatched bucket-loads of “Google Cardboard VR viewers” at a shipping price of $5. The announcement is to begin at 10 p.m. EDT. In the meantime, the company has been confirming some of the key configurations of the OnePlus 2 via teasers.

Now a report states that an early receiver of the OnePlus 2 has posted killer images taken with the the device.

The lucky user of the advance unit of OnePlus 2 is Marques Brownlee. He has posted a slew of images and a video captured via the handset’s phenomenal camera unit and has shared all the images and the video via Twitter, Google+ and YouTube. One of the captured images he tweeted with a resolution of 4,160 × 3,120 pixels. This means the rear-facing camera has 13 MP, says Phone Arena. In addition, the camera unit’s aperture is f/2.0, which enables capturing good quality photos even under dim-lit conditions.

OnePlus has confirmed many of the key features one by one. The standout configurations include a fingerprint scanner, a battery unit with bigger capacity and a killer 4 GB of RAM. The phone will come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, seen in other flagship devices released this year. The device will flaunt a full metal chassis unlike the predecessor OnePlus One, which comes with a polycarbonate/plastic exterior. And the phone will be sold for less than $450.

Here is the incredible shot taken with the new OnePlus 2. Readers can check out the rest of the pictures via Brownlee’s Google+ account.
