We are edging ever closer to the launch of the OnePlus 2, so perhaps we shouldn’t be so surprised to see the handset passing through China’s TENAA certification center.
The nice thing about TENAA is that it also gives us a look at the handset. From the images we can see the adoption of a new physical home button, which is presumably where the fingerprint scanner will be housed. Rather than opting for a rear scanner like Huawei has done in the past, a scanner located in the home button is something that we are used to seeing from the likes of Samsung.
On the back we can also spot the new camera module lower down the handset, which, if earlier reports are accurate, appears to feature a laser auto focus system just underneath the lens. LG’s G3 and G4 smartphones make use of laser technology to allow for much faster camera focusing for nearby objects.
Other confirmed OnePlus 2 specifications include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, reversible USB Type-C connection and a 3300mAh battery, at a cost of under $450. The phone is also said to have a 13 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The OnePlus 2 is expected to launch on July 27th, just five days away, and will be broadcast in virtual reality for those who own a little Google Cardboard or another VR headset. We should know all of the official details in just a few days’ time.
