With less than a week to go for its launch, the OnePlus 2 has been spotted at telecommunication agency website revealing the device's design.
Technology blog Engadget, while sifting through TENNA, a Chinese government owned telecom regulatory authority website has stumbled on the OnePlus 2 document containing the images of the phone.
In the image, we can see all the sides of the OnePlus 2, confirming that the device does indeed come with the laser auto-focus feature on the rear-side (below the main camera module) as seen in the flagship LG G4 and G3. It also confirms that the finger-print sensor will be placed on the home button.
Last month, the company had confirmed that OnePlus 2 will feature finger print sensor, but it didn't reveal the location. Now, we have evidence to believe OnePlus 2 will feature finger-print sensor on home button just like Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple iPhone series devices, not like HTC One Max (released in 2013) which house this kind of biometric sensor on the back.

OnePlus has claimed that OnePlus 2 can register five different finger impressions and the system is faster and secured than the Apple iPhone 6's Touch ID system.
So far OnePlus has confirmed that the new phone will be compact compared to its predecessor and run on the new OxygenOS (in global variant)/HydrogenOS (in China) based Android 5.1 Lollipop, backed by Snapdragon 810 v2.1 Octa-core CPU, 4GB LPPDDR 4 RAM, USB Type C port and 3300 mAh battery.
