If you are current with some newly launched OEMs within the past 2 years, you may have heard of the OnePlus 1 smartphone. The android smartphone was launched in 2014 and in same 2014, according to statistics, it appeared in the list of favorite devices for the year and sold around a million in 2014.
In July 2015, OnePlus announced their upcoming flagship device to be the OnePlus 2 smartphone which is expected to be released in August 2015.
The OnePlus 2 smartphone comes packed with some really cool specs and features. The device can best be described as a phablet as it features a 5.5 inch screen size which is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Runs on android v5.1 which is the lollipop OS, fingerprint sensor, snapdragon 810 processor, non-removable Li-Po 3300 mAh battery.
The device will come in two variants which are;
- The 16GB internal storage version packed with 3GB RAM
- The 64GB internal storage version with 4GB RAM.
Both devices won’t have an SD Card slot. Hence, it’s best to describe the devices internal storage capacities as non expandable.
Apparently, the device seems to be a welcome idea by most fans and even though the device isn’t on sales yet, it has got over 2 million reservations in just one week after been unveiled. The statistics was reported by OnePlus via their twitter page.

However, this time, it promises a new and improved invite system and those who already got the invite, can share with friends.
The OEM also added that it aims at selling between three to five million devices this year and from the look of things, they don’t seem too far from the set milestone.
