OnePlus 2 specs leak ahead of July 27 debut

Although OnePlus has not shied away from revealing some of the hardware for its next smartphone, a new leak might fill in the blanks.

More than a year after dipping its toes into the smartphone space with the OnePlus One , OnePlus is set to deliver its second model later this month.

Thanks to OnePlus' forums and Twitters posts, we expect a Snapdragon 810 processor and a whopping 4GB of RAM, as well as a USB Type-C port and a fingerprint reader.

A new leak on Mobipicker could fill in some of the other details for the OnePlus 2. Taking them with the proverbial grain of salt, the report claims the phone could possess a 5.5-inch, 1080p HD display. That isn't as high as the 2K screens with 2,560x1,440-pixel resolutions we're seeing these days for larger phones, but it would still appear nice and sharp overall.

Scheduled for launch on July 27, we already know plenty about the OnePlus 2, some of it officially! The company has not shied away from dropping hints and tidbits in the run-up to the announcement.

Other hardware may include a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 3,300mAh battery. In terms of storage, the tipster points to 64 GB for the OnePlus 2.

One thing to keep in mind is that phone is likely to come in a variety of configurations. A recent Bluetooth SIG sighting indicates there could be three versions released; model numbers include A2001, A2003, and A2005.

It's also worth pointing out that the new report says we could see 3GB of RAM instead of 4GB. This conflicts with an official Twitter claim of 4GB for the device. Perhaps OnePlus will debut a high-end version with all of the bells and whistles alongside lower-cost variants.

A post on OnePlus CEO Pete Lau's Google Plus account this week promised that the OnePlus 2 will cost less than $450, which works out to £292.60 and about AU$604.50.

Thankfully, we won't have to wait much longer before we're able to put these rumors to bed. CNET will be on the ground on July 27 for the live announcement.

OnePlus didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the rumors.
