OnePlus 2 to be dual-SIM, perhaps with microSD slot as well
Another day another OnePlus 2 detail leaked ahead of its July 28th launch. This time, OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu has taken to Weibo to state that the smartphone will support dual-SIM card slots.
While dual-SIM support is welcome enough news by itself in many markets, particularly in the Asian Pacific region, this also opens up the possibility that the OnePlus 2 may also support a microSD card this time around. The original OnePlus One did not support expandable storage and this was a common criticism leveled at the smartphone.
A number of existing dual-SIM handsets have already implemented technology that allows the second tray to use a SIM card or double up as a microSD expansion slot, if the user needs additional storage. It’s possible that OnePlus may make use of this technology to offer two new features in one stroke. However, this is just a hopeful assumption at this point.
Other known details about the OnePlus 2 include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, USB Type-C connection, fingerprint scanner, a 3300mAh battery, and a 13MP camera with laser auto focus. You can check out all the latest rumors here.
The company also recently dropped details on its improved invite system, which will hopefully see the smartphone arrive in eager consumer hands a lot sooner than before.
