Hey there, good lookin' - here's the OnePlus 2 in hi-res leaked photos

...anyway, the OnePlus 2 looks like an overhauled version of the 2014 original. Those expecting blistering innovation and disruptive ideas will walk away with a knowledgeable "seen it before" yawn, while others will certainly appreciate the omission of plastic elements in the name of cold, hard metal. This isn't a unibody design, however, as the OnePlus 2 preserves the removable back cover and swappable battery, which ought to make disheartened Samsung fans rejoice.
Other notable changes include a dual-LED camera flash, along with what appears to be a sensor or camera button positioned right below the rear camera lens. On the front panel, there's a fingerprint sensor, which may or may not double as a Home button (as seen on the Meizu MX4 Pro, for example).
The leakster him/herself had the following to say (make of it what you will):
"I am a beta tester from ChinaI have used the new OnePlus 2 for a few week
Ugly design, but the crafting is good
Thicker body, but feel good in hands
Camera has OIS, but not Sony sensor
Home button with fingerprint sensor, not quite sensitive
Oxygen OS not finalize yet, lots of bugs
Prefer OnePlus One more ..."
Despite the lack of major design changes (save for that sturdy-looking metal frame), evolution has clearly graced the handset and we're quite keen to learn more about the OnePlus 2's new features. This will happen in a few hours, so stay put! Oh, and in case you forgot (or didn't get to know) what the original OnePlus looked like, we've attached a gallery below the leaked photos so you can compare!

Meh , too risky to buy this after their Hardware and Software issues, and the fact that they dont have their own OS but use some 3rd party crap company(cyanogen) to make OS for them riddled with bugs and unstable. Nope , never.

They have their own OS. There are even packages available to convert the original phone from Cyanogen to their own.

Dude , they have some half baked attempt at OS , i owned device for 1 month and i got sick of it . Read the quote from beta tester : "Oxygen OS not finalize yet, lots of bugs Prefer OnePlus One more ...". Not even 1+2 will have normal software and i hope to God it dosent have hardware issues like last one with broken touch on almost all devices , speaker and other issues beside SD810 overheating.

Actually this is one of the few manufacturers that has their own OS. You can always install vanilla Android on it, while that's not possible yet for the 1+2 what makes you think it won't be in the next few weeks?

I'd like to ask you where did you see that OnePlus confirmed a Sony sensor for the camera, as you said my comment was irrelevant on the other news but in this one the information is conflicting? (I don't mean to come off as offensive just genuinely interested in knowing if it has a Sony sensor or something different)

The back definitely looks ugly. Its not hideous or something but surely not appealing. The front looks meh. whatever, SD810 + Ugly = Boo.

Holy s**t they created a Samsung phone with a textured back. I truly believe in their motto to never settle...with this company, dime a dozen. I applaud their team and all their hard work in successfully mimicking other smartphone designs we have been barfing over. Outstanding work! DOA. now I go sleep.....ZZZzzzzzzZZZzzzZZZzzzzz

Same ole haters hating in the comments section... As an owner of a OPO I think this looks fine. I'd upgrade if it doesn't cost more than $400 for the 64GB model. The only contention I have is whether or not the battery lasts as long as my OPO.
