Alleged OnePlus 2 specs spilled by smartphone retailer
The OnePlus 2’s specifications appear to have been leaked by a smartphone retailer ahead of the handset’s rumored unveiling next month. In addition to a faster processor, the listing promises improvements to the handset’s camera, and a bigger battery.
However, the details aren’t quite as exciting as we’ve been expecting.
The leak comes from Israelian retailer GoMobile, which is the official reseller of the OnePlus One in Israel. According to its description of the device, it will have a 5.5-inch 1080p display — just like its predecessor — as well as a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
It seems unlikely OnePlus would use a Snapdragon 805 at this point, however, given that the chipset is now more than a year old. But it would allow the company to keep the cost of the handset low, and help it avoid the overheating issues with the new Snapdragon 810.
GoMobile also promises a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera — up from 13 megapixels, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 64GB of internal storage as standard, and a 3,300mAh battery — up from 3,100mAh.
Another thing that makes us question the listing, however, is that it says the OnePlus 2 will launch with Android 4.4 KitKat, which certainly won’t be the case. The original is already running Android 5.0 Lollipop, and OnePlus has promised that its next model will bring Android 5.1.
With that in mind, it’s probably best to take these specifications with a pinch of salt for now; recent rumors have claimed the OnePlus 2 will actually be much better. While GoMobile may be an official One reseller, this could simply be a placeholder listing with temporary specs that wasn’t supposed to go up.
