Leaked images show OnePlus 2 front panel, confirm its smaller size when compared to the OnePlus One
With the OnePlus 2 expected to be unveiled next Monday as the main feature of a VR spectacular, it is not surprising to see more leaks related to the device as we get closer to July 27th. Today, the front panel of the handset has allegedly surfaced. The images come from a Weibo account of a tipster who had earlier passed along some other information related to the eagerly awaited handset.

With a cutout for a oval shaped home button, that is probably going to be where the fingerprint sensor will be located. OnePlus has already teased the inclusion of the security feature, and OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has already made it known that he does not like rear mounted fingerprint scanners.

Another leaked image from the same source appears to show a plaster build of the front of the phone. But more important are the numbers found on the side. They apparently show that the dimensions of the phone will be 148.6mm x 71.7mm. That would confirm that the sequel will be smaller than the OnePlus One, which measures 152.9mm x 75.9mm x 8.9 mm.

We recommend that you take these images with a grain of salt. While Weibo can be a great source of leaks, it also is a bit like the wild, wild, West.


Thanks for the tip!

Will they even make money? It seems like Apple iPhone is the only one making money. Who's gonna keep making android phones when they are losing money?

Um, Samsung, obviously? Dont' forget, Samsung makes money on iPhone sales because of the chips they supply.

Hopefully no more on-screen buttons, It's a waste of screen space.

i hope that there's still a choice with this phone even if there's a physical one.

So glad it's not a 5.7 inch panel.

Are you glad it's a Snapdragon 810?

Yes, having used both versions 2.0 and 2.1 of the Snapdragon 810 processor (the difference in versions is attributable to software drivers) on my HTC One M9, I can tell you that ver. 2.1 works amazingly well: 1) It never gets warm unless under full load and then only as much as any other metal phone: 2) Improved performance dramatically; and 3) Improved battery life.

You know when you're at a party or your friends house and you sometimes need to charge your phone, good luck finding a c-type USB adapter. I hope this phone comes with an extra cable so I can leave in the car.

What about buying a bloody cable yourself? The phone will have amazing value for money, so?

The same thing happened phones transitioned from mini USB to micro USB. Before mini USB most brands had their own connex connector. But that was when phones held a charge for a week.

Thing is only reason they all went into micro usb was cause of European Union made them to. I doubt suddenly in one year every single phone will have usbC. And Af1rPA has a really good point. It has saved me many times being out or at friends home and allways someone had a charger to help me.

Shaving 4mm off of the width seems incredibly unlikely. That would make it more or less bezel less on the sides.

if it is real, then the display will have to be smaller. no way they could make it physically smaller and also include that massive home button/fingerprint reader at the bottom

Why because its oval? And if it was circle would you say iphone button spotted? What do you want them to use a damn triangle? FOH

If they could find out something else, then we could call it innovation, now we have to say it's copying. Interestingly, Meizu made a home button as a mixture of Samsung and iPhone for MX5.
