OnePlus 2 is set to release this month through a unique virtual reality event. In the meantime, OnePlus is keeping its fans occupied with regular teasers about the actual handset ahead of the grand unveiling on 28 July. OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu (aka Pete Lau) confirmed through his Weibo account on Wednesday that the OnePlus 2 smartphone will feature a dual SIM support with dual standby.
The frequent teasers by the company have confirmed several features that will come in the OnePlus One successor at launch. This has created great demand for the yet-to-be-released handset. In order to prevent the hustle faced during the OnePlus One release, the Chinese manufacturer is ramping up the inventory by fifty times for the upcoming handset.
In an official company's blog on Wednesday, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pie said, "With the OnePlus One, we did a bit better than we thought we would. This has made us more confident, and therefore we will have far more launch inventory than last time. We're talking about 30-50x last year. This means that it will be significantly easier to get an invite from the very beginning."
To make things simpler, OnePlus' new invite system will include a Reservation List, which will allow interested customers sign up to get an invite as soon as they are available. This will help those who are not active on the OnePlus forums or social media. But, OnePlus has confirmed that the early forum supporters will get priority over others in the invite system.
Like the original invite system, the latest model will include invite sharing. Buyers of OnePlus 2 smartphone will get invites that can be shared with friends. Unlike the last time, the invites are expected to arrive sooner.
So far, OnePlus has let out key specs of the handset and reserved some for the official launch. The OnePlus 2 will feature an improved version of the Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM, USB Type C port, a physical home button with a fingerprint sensor, a 3,300mAh battery, faster LTE, a slimmer full metal body and a 5.5-inch full HD (1,920×1,080 pixels) display. The company's CEO has promised that the handset will be priced under $450.
