The OnePlus 2
was oficially announced a couple of days ago and more than 750,000
people have already signed up for an invite that will allow them to get the self-proclaimed "2016 flagship killer"
. Despite the fact that it's missing several key flagship features, like quick charging and NFC, the OnePlus 2 is still a device that will offer a pretty good bang for the buck. On paper, at least, and provided that you can get one.
As usual with the more anticipated devices that get announced, the first teardown of the phone pops up shortly after it officially debuts. Such is the case with the OnePlus 2 - procured by IT168, the first disassembly of the handset gives us a clear look at its hardware insides. We get to see what's behind the faux home button, which is actually a capacitive button with fingerprint-reading functions.
The rest of the silicon entrails are also up for a quick gander, as the teardown is giving us a clear look at the motherboard, chipset, memory, as well as the radios, the modems, and the camera modules. The latter are obviously OmniVision offerings; the rear camera sensor is an OV13860, while the front one is an OV5648 one.
