Latest OnePlus 2 specs leak claims a 5.5" 1080p panel, and a hefty body

Latest OnePlus 2 specs leak claims a 5.5
The OnePlus 2 announcement is fast approaching, pegged for the end of the month, and by now we know most of the handset's specs from various leaks and tips. The OnePlus 2 is said to come with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, a USB Type-C port, an eventual metallic body, and there will be models with 4 GB of RAM, as the company itself teased.

The handset is expected to cost in the vicinity of $450, presumably for the most decked-out A2003/05 models with 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, but one very important aspect of the specs sheet was sorely missing so far - the screen diagonal. Granted, it was pegged as being between 5.5"-5.7" by a prominent leakster not long ago, and now the same tipping account posted the full specs sheet of the basic A2001 version with 3 GB of RAM, indicating that the OnePlus 2 will have a 5.5" 1080p panel.

We can't say that we are unhappy with that decision, if it indeed materializes, as long as the phone's price is kept in check, and there is more availability at that price than what happened with its predecessor. The rest of the sheet shows a 16 MP rear camera, 5 MP selfie snapper, 64 GB of storage, and a 3300 mAh battery. A metal body is all the more likely, looking at these specs, given that the weight of the phone is shown at the hefty 166g mark. That's a far cry from the best achievements with all-metal Android handsets, though. 

All in all, a fine list, save for the weight and the 810 chipset, so we can't wait to see the final design, given that almost everybody went premium this year, using upscale materials for their flagship and even midrange chassis.

Can't wait for the final unveiling. Hope the SN810 won't screw it too hard.

SD810 screwed up big time this year. Ruined most flagships. I had a hope they would use SD808 on this one.

I checked the Z3+ and the Z4. With the firmware update underclocking the 810, they are cooler now but lose to Z3 in speed test though still are fast and fluid. The only major problem might be the camera which heats up pretty fast when use different features of the camera app especially the AR feature which will force close the camera just after a short period of using. So, it is not too terrible but it is a fact that it is worse than the Z3.

Why the hell this has to be SD810? Everything else sounds like a phone I was looking for.

Yesterday OnePlus announced OP2 will have 4GB of RAM, so this is not true, those specs are probably of One Plus Lite that alco coming out.. OP2 will have QHD display, 4gb and 810.

I really hoped OP2 would be delayed so they could use the SD820 instead but it looks like this won't be happening. I'm going to have to skip this one as I don't want to carry a heater in my pocket!

A 1080p version of the phone is a good choice if true

You can get a new unlocked galaxy s6 for 500...

Yes, but if somebody values a bigger screen, greater storage and longer battery life they may not want a Galaxy S6.

Or galaxy A8

The SD810 sucks. Why don't they use the 808? At least I'll be glad if they go with 1080p screen. The battery life will be much better.

I would say good luck One Plus. But I have another 5.5" smartphone by the name of iDROID King which stands right besides these top-end phones. It has exciting specifications and introduced for the first time by none other than iDROID USA. You all need to check it out!
