The Chinese tech titan OnePlus is apparently getting ready to release the flagship for 2015. A new official teaser showcasing the OnePlus 2 confirms the price ambit of the upcoming handset.

According to CEO Pete Lau, the OnePlus 2 will be priced less than the $450 mark. Needless to say, the actual price could be $449, says GSM Arena. In comparison, the predecessor OnePlus One with 16 GB internal storage capacity was priced at $299, when the handset was launched. In the meantime, the price of the predecessor has been cut and it is now available for just $249. Therefore, comparing the predecessor’s dirt cheap price with the successor, the OnePlus 2 cannot be called as a budget-friendly device.

As far as the rumoured OnePlus 2 specifications go, the smartphone will apparently come powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. To top it off, reports also point to a fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C port. Speaking of the location of the fingerprint scanner, the unit will reportedly be affixed on the back of the smartphone, embedded on a vertical bar, under the camera and LED flash units.

Although, the exact display size is not known at this point, Phone Arena says, the handset could flaunt a screen size between 5.5-inch and 5.7-inch. The phone is expected to come with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. Plus, the upcoming device will reportedly sport a metal chassis instead of the synonymous plastic exterior.

Furthermore, the OnePlus 2 will apparently be backed by a good 3 GB of RAM configuration, says another Phone Arena report. When it comes to camera configuration, the device will sport an impressive 13 MP rear-facing unit. But then, readers should note that, the Chinese tech titan has not confirmed the OnePlus 2 specifications or features thus far.

On the other hand, according to Phone Arena, the OnePlus 2 release date is set for July 27 at 10 pm EDT. With high expectations and having the history of selling approximately one million OnePlus One units, will OnePlus 2 become a household name? Feel free to leave a comment.
