Announced at the end of last month, the OnePlus 2
will be available to buy starting tomorrow, August 11, though you're going to need an invite
to actually order the handset. If you have an invite and you're based in North America, there's a bit of bad news for you coming today from OnePlus: the company says that, "due to production schedules", its new smartphone will be shipped to the US and Canada only 2 to 3 weeks after shipments to Europe start. This means that, if you're ordering a OnePlus 2 on August 11 from the US or Canada, you should expect to receive it at the end of the month, or in early September. Of course, that's not a terribly long delay, but some fans will likely not be too happy about this.
As you may already know, the OnePlus 2 has two versions: one with 16 GB of internal memory, which costs $329, and one with 64 GB of internal memory, which will be sold for $389. Both run OnePlus' new Oxygen OS (based on Android Lollipop), and offer attractive features like an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, 13 MP rear camera with OIS, 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 3300 mAh battery. Do you plan to buy the new handset?
