OnePlus is going all out with the unveiling of its second handset. A VR unveiling of the OnePlus 2 will take place on July 27th at 10pm EDT (7pm PDT). Those who request one, are being sent cardboard VR viewers that are costing the company a ton of money.
There is plenty of pressure on OnePlus to deliver an amazing sequel considering the tremendous rise of the company. Started by a former Oppo VP, Peter Lau, the company's mission is to sell highly spec'd flagship phones at an affordable price. The OnePlus One delivered with a flagship spec'd phone offering a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC. The 16GB Silk White version was priced originally at $349, and the 64GB Sandstone Black model was tagged at $399. Instead of selling the 50,000 to 100,000 units expected, nearly one million handsets were sold.
The OnePlus 2 is rumored to be coming to market with a 5.5-inch to 5.7-inch screen. A Snapdragon 810 chipset will be employed, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. The handset will come with the new Type-C USB port which allows users to insert the cable either side up.
Just to be on the safe side, we suggest taking these images with the proverbial grain of salt.
Thanks for the tip, Dejan!
