The month of July saw the launch of the much-anticipated OnePlus One successor, called the OnePlus 2. This handset starts selling Tuesday in selected regions. But for the U.S. and Canada, the shipping date has been postponed.
To get the OnePlus 2 smartphone, buyers need an invite. In case any North American customers managed to get one, they should note that the shipping date in the U.S., in addition to Canada, has been delayed by a few weeks.
OnePlus’ official website says this delay is due to “production schedules.” If a buyer orders the OnePlus 2 right away from the U.S. or Canada, the handset will arrive only by the end of August or early September.
Phone Arena says the device comes in two variants. One of them comes equipped with 16 GB of built-in storage space and will set buyers back by $329. The other model packs a cool 64 GB of native storage and can be had for $389.
Both the OnePlus 2 variants run the company’s brand new Oxygen OS, which is based on Android Lollipop. They are powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC and backed by 4 GB of RAM. Plus, the 5.5-inch IPS display has been bundled with 1080p screen resolution. The smartphone has a 13 MP rear-facing camera with OIS support, in addition to a generous 5 MP front-facing snapper for selfies and live video chats. It's powered by a solid 3,300 mAh battery unit. Interested buyers can place an order from OnePlus.
