OnePlus knows the trick to surprise its fans very well! The company may not have yet launched the OnePlus 2 smartphone, however it does have revealed some of the features of the phone to take all by surprise.
This time the company has tweeted out that the much awaited OnePlus 2 will be the first flagship to feature a USB C type connectivity option, which was earlier also seen on the Apple MacBook.
The OnePlus 2 is one of the most awaited smartphones of the year considering that the company's previously launched OnePlus One changed the definition of a ‘budget' smartphone completely. Touted as the flagship killer, the phone was loaded with high-end specs but at a comparatively much lower price. The OnePlus 2 is also expected to be a beast in terms of specs and features.
Here we have a list of all the specs details known so far:
1. Design: There is not much known about the design of the phone. It is likely to be quite different from its predecessor considering that Carl Pei hinted a change in the OnePlus 2 design. Going by rumors, OnePlus 2 is likely to be more premium than the One, and thus it might feature a metal frame.
2. Display: Rumors have it the phone could either come with a 5.5-inch or a 5.7-inch display. Though, it is more likely that the phone comes with the smaller display of 5.5-inch, offering possibly 2K pixel resolution.
