Pictures allegedly showing both sides of the OnePlus 2 surface

Pictures allegedly showing both sides of the OnePlus 2 surface
One of our loyal readers has graced our inbox this morning with a pair of photographs allegedly showing both sides of the eagerly awaited OnePlus 2. While the images are blurry, the device appears to sport a metal build, with a high screen to body ratio. As we told you yesterday, the "2" does resemble its predecessor and these photos confirm that. The back of the phone seemingly shows the rumored fingerprint scanner on a vertical bar, under the camera and flash.

OnePlus is going all out with the unveiling of its second handset. A VR unveiling of the OnePlus 2 will take place on July 27th at 10pm EDT (7pm PDT). Those who request one, are being sent cardboard VR viewers that are costing the company a ton of money.

There is plenty of pressure on OnePlus to deliver an amazing sequel considering the tremendous rise of the company. Started by a former Oppo VP, Peter Lau, the company's mission is to sell highly spec'd flagship phones at an affordable price. The OnePlus One delivered with a flagship spec'd phone offering a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC. The 16GB Silk White version was priced originally at $349, and the 64GB Sandstone Black model was tagged at $399. Instead of selling the 50,000 to 100,000 units expected, nearly one million handsets were sold.

The OnePlus 2 is rumored to be coming to market with a 5.5-inch to 5.7-inch screen. A Snapdragon 810 chipset will be employed, carrying  an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. The handset will come with the new Type-C USB port which allows users to insert the cable either side up.

Just to be on the safe side, we suggest taking these images with the proverbial grain of salt.


Thanks for the tip, Dejan!

Fake. The measurements on the table do not match. The front photo shows it being 14cm tall and the back photo shows it being 17cm tall.

The back looks waaaaay taller than the front. I'd love a screen to body ratio like that though.

That back pic is fake for sure. That's the leaked back of the upcoming Moto X with a One Plug edited on. The front pic looks way sketchy also.

Lol.. PhoneArena should have taken this with "a pinch/grain of salt".

some lonely idiot had to spend his whole day on his computer to make this fake. Show some respect.

Definitely fake, there's no way OnePlus would ship a phone with a gigantic, obtrusive PhoneArena watermark.

If it is real than I'm totally into it. Freaking awesome. Can't wait for the device to be unveiled and hope they will give the invites to those who purchased OPO via invite.
