If you have been tracking developments around OnePlus 2, you must be aware of the new specs revealed by the company as well as the hot rumours surrounding the 2015 flagship. But if you have not been, for some reason, here's a full roundup of the specs, the features, the release date and the expected price.
OnePlus 2 Official Specs
Let's begin with specs that have already been confirmed by OnePlus as part of its marketing play. Last Wednesday, the company revealed that its upcoming flagship smartphone will boast of Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor. The latest chipset, which is equivalent to desktop grade computing power, brings ultimate gaming experience, enhanced battery performance and ditches any heating problem. OnePlus explained the benefits of Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC in a detailed post on its forum last week.
After a few days of silence, OnePlus revealed an interesting feature - the USB Type-C port. The support for reversible plug makes charging and transfer seamless, and supports USB 3.1 and USB PD standards for swift data transfer up to 10Gbps. The all-in-one port makes it easier to support various outputs, including HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort and others. But the USB Type-C port is just in its nascent stages and OnePlus 2 will be the first to sport such a technology in smartphones. Once the technology is adopted by other makers, OnePlus 2 will be already leading the pack.

OnePlus is smartly keeping other specifics of its upcoming smartphone under wraps and only giving out what's more appealing. The marketing strategy is certainly working for the tech giant but fans want to see more details. Thankfully, there are plenty of rumours that have outlined the possible specs and features.
OnePlus 2 is said to borrow a display similar to its predecessor in the form of a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, but get stronger Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The handset is expected to sport a 13-megapixel rear facing camera, 3GB RAM, 3,300mAh battery and Android-run Oxygen OS.

After revealing that the OnePlus 2 will be priced higher than OnePlus One, rumours had suggested the new handset could carry a price tag of 1,999 Chinese Yuan, which roughly translates to $322. Internationally, we can expect the OnePlus 2 to sell for $349, which is $100 more than the current price of OnePlus One.
