After all the leaks, rumors and official confirmations, the OnePlus 2 has finally been certified by the TENAA (1) (2), China's equivalent of the Federal Communications Commission. In addition, sketches submitted to TENAA show the exterior design of the upcoming flagship smartphone.
According to the TENAA listing, the OnePlus 2 will include a fingerprint scanner for authentication, which is confirmed by the sketches, and there is a physical home button. The camera unit is reportedly further down the back of the device than in the original OnePlus One. In the meantime, Android Central reports that the handset may also come with a laser autofocus option for the camera, similar to the LG G4.
Other OnePlus 2 specifications, reported by OppoMart, include a 5.5-inch display, fitted with the now-ubiquitous 1,440-x-2,560-pixel resolution. It apparently will be powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC, and graphics will be controlled by the powerful Adreno 430 GPU and backed by 4 GB of RAM.
The camera unit reportedly will have a 16-megapixel Sony Exmor IMX 234 sensor as the main unit. There also will be a 5-megapixel distortion-free front-facing camera. The battery is 3,300 mAh.
As for software, the newly introduced OxygenOS, which is based on the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, will take over the responsibilities. OppoMart says the handset will come with dual SIM capability. In addition to the standard connectivity options, the phone will support 4G LTE and reportedly will have 32 GB and 64 GB memory options. The device will be available in black or white.
The OnePlus 2 will cost $499 at OppoMart and will be released July 27. However, the Chinese tech titan has not confirmed the entire list of specifications and features.
