Confirmed: OnePlus 2 is smaller than the OnePlus One, but has a larger battery

First of all, we now know for sure that the OnePlus 2 is smaller than the OnePlus One (which sports a 5.5-inch display and measures 152.9 x 75.9 x 8.9 mm). However, this doesn't mean that the OnePlus 2 has a smaller display: rumors have it that it's still a 5.5-inch 1080p panel.
Another thing that's been confirmed during the AMA session is that the new OnePlus smartphone has a 3300 mAh battery, which should provide extended usage times compared to the 3100 mAh battery of the OnePlus One.
The quality of the rear camera (expected to be a 16 MP one) is of "high priority" for OnePlus. The company believes that "a bunch of things" related to the camera "will set the OnePlus 2 apart."
OnePlus is "most proud" of the design and build of its next handset, which likely means the device is made out of metal - just as rumored. There will be a OnePlus 2 for the US market (with LTE bands 1 / 2 / 4 / 5 / 7 / 8 / 12 / 17), and another one for Europe and the rest of the world (with LTE bands 1 / 3 / 5 / 7 / 8 / 20).
Other previously confirmed OnePlus 2 features include: a fingerprint scanner, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a USB Type-C connector.
The new handset will be available to buy via "an improved" invite system. As previously mentioned, its price will be lower than $450. Finally, in case anyone was curious, we'll still be able to buy the OnePlus One after the OnePlus 2 is launched.

The battery should never go down in capacity year after year. It's called an upgrade, not a side grade. The batteries in these phones are so disappointing. The only two to get it right are the Z3 and S6 Active. Hopefully this has a battery like those; with all the innovations made in a smartphone, battery never seems to get drastically better.

Well, at least they got the band 12 part right. I hope smaller doesn't mean they're ditching the capacitive buttons. I really like them on my OnePlus One. Still, with the 810, I'm not interested, unless somehow they work some voodoo and make it perform well without overheating. Shoulda gone with the 805 or 808.

Still disappointed that it's still big despite 'smaller'. I wish they'd make a compact version, but I think I'm reaching for the stars here as nobody would do that except Sony. But even Sony's compact version is a bit too big. :(
