After the overnight success of OnePlus One, the Chinese smartphone maker is all set to release the successor of another flagship killer next month. According to a latest MasterHelard report, the most anticipated smartphone will feature a few major changes over its predecessor.
While the OnePlus One runs on Cyanogen-based Android OS out-of-the-box, the OnePlus Two will come with the home-made OxygenOS operating system. OnePlus developed the OS after the differences arose with Cyanogen during the release of Yu Yureka smartphone in India, when Cyanogen signed an exclusive deal with Indian smartphone-maker Micromax. The deal put sale of OnePlus One smartphone in trouble and eventually led to a temporary ban on sale of the handset in India.
Based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the OxygenOS is functionally very similar to the existing Cyanogen 12s and inherits the superior features of Android Lollipop. The upcoming flagship OnePlus Two might feature much-improved OxygenOS with enhanced support and bug fixes.
According to earlier GizChina reports, OnePlus Two will feature a 5.5-inch display with a resolution support of 2,560x1,440and will also feature Snapdragon 810 SoC, 4GB RAM, 3,300mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop. But OnePlus might skip the SoC since Snapdragon is yet to address the heating issue of S810. In that case it might feature the SnapDragon 615 or some other SoC in its upcoming flagship smartphone.
But since SnapDragon 810 suffers with some heating issues, OnePlus Two might feature SnapDragon 615 or Snapdragon 808 SoC into it.
ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML is the first smartphone in the world to feature 4GB RAM memory. Later Lenovo launched K80 with similar amount of RAM. According to some latest rumours, Motorola is also bringing the 3rd Generation of Moto X with similar amount of RAM memory.
Reading the specifications, we assume the OnePlus Two is expected to be priced around $500 which roughly translates to ₹32,147.
Meanwhile, OnePlus has withdrawn the invite-only purchase system of Oneplus One, so the smartphones are now available globally without any invitation. According to a recent OnePlus official blog post, the OnePlus Two will be initially available with the same invite-only basis.
