OnePlus has been slowly rolling out the specifications of its upcoming OnePlus 2 flagship, leading up to its July 27th unveiling. We already know that the device will feature a fingerprint scanner, a USB Type-C port, a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor and possibly an all-metal chassis. But with many of the high-end specifications already confirmed by the company, one could infer that the device might end up costing a bit more than expected.

Interested consumers can rest easy knowing that, according to OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, the OnePlus 2 will cost less than 450 USD. There’s no mention of a specific price point in the Google+ post, so there’s no way of telling whether it will come to market for $449.99 or closer to $300 like the OnePlus One.

Last year, Lau teased that the company’s first flagship would cost “less than $400”, and they absolutely delivered on that promise. Not only did the 16GB base model cost $299, but folks could also pick up the beefier 64GB variant for just $349. The OnePlus 2 may end up costing a tad more than the One, but we’re sure many users will still be interested in purchasing an unlocked smartphone with high-end specifications for sub-$450.
