The slow reveal running up to the OnePlus 2 launch next month marches on today with the revelation of an included fingerprint scanner.
For anyone who has been following OnePlus this year, the announcement of a fingerprint scanner should come as no surprise as it was hinted as much in Q&A with the OP team months ago. The fingerprint scanner on the OP2 sounds like it will use the same tech as the Huawei Mate 7 i.e a scanner (on the rear?) that only needs a single tap to both wake and unlock the phone. Other devices need the phone to be first woken then unlocked (MX4 Pro, Oppo N3, Elephone P7000 etc). Up to 5 fingerprints can be stored on the OnePlus 2 meaning you and a trusted user can also get access to your phone.
OnePlus also revealed the OP2 will have USB Type C and a 1.8Ghz Snapdragon 810 CPU. We expect a 16 mega-pixel+ main camera and 2K display on the newest flagship.
