OnePlus 2 officially launched, here are all the specs


oneplus 2 hero

The phone that was on many of our lips has finally launched, so has the wait for the OnePlus 2 been worth it? Learn the full specs for the new flagship killer here.

With leaked images and video, and OnePlus releasing partial specifications for their latest device ahead of the VR launch earlier, there really wasn’t much left for OnePlus fans to wait for and learn.

Still there were some surprising additions and omissions of the OnePlus 2 that we learnt during the launch.

In standard form the OnePlus 2 will ship with a Sandstone Black rear panel. There won’t be a white baby skin version available off the shelf, but wooden style swap covers will finally be making their way on to the phone. I have to say that the odd styling doesn’t look quite as bad when those wooden covers are attached in place too.

Dimensions of the OnePlus 2 are smaller than the original OPO at 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.85mm. With a weight of 175g and a thickness of 9.85mm the OPT isn’t the lightest nor thinnest phone on the market, but that recoverable rear cover does add to the thickness as does the 3300mAh battery. Unfortunately the battery is non user replaceable and, although quite a thick phone, OnePlus didn’t manage to find space of fast charging, wireless charging, NFC or a SD card slot.

Moving on the display on the OnePlus 2 is a Corning Gorilla Glass 5.5-inch panel running a FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080. A good choice in our opinion. Above the display is a 5 mega-pixel distortion free camera and below a physical home button with in-built fingerprint scanner.

Dual speakers are found in the base of the phone as is USB Type C, while the rear is home to a 13 mega-pixel main camera. The rear camera boast OIS, dual LED flash and 6 lenses for reduced distortion and color aberration. The rear camera supports 4K video and 720p slow motion at 120fps. The 13 megapixel shooter also boast an F2.0 aperture and super fast laser autofocus.

Under the hood there are very few shocks. Qualcomm have supplied a 64bit Snapdragon 810 chipset running at an under clocked 1.8Ghz and Adreno 430 GPU. There is 3-4GB RAM, options for either 64GB or 16GB memory, and dual SIM.

Supported bands for the OnePlus 2 (international model) are;

  • US – GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz; WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/8; FDD-LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/7/8/12/17
  • EU/India – GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz; WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/5/8; FDD-LTE: Bands: 1/3/5/7/8/20

The “Flagship Killer” also comes with dual-band WIFI, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS.

As you are all probably aware the OnePlus 2 comes with OnePlus’s own Android ROM named OxygenOS. The system is based on Android 5.1.1 and looks clean and stylish, but not to far removed from a standard Android install.

You are all also probably be aware that to buy the OnePlus 2 you are going to need an invite. The first invites will begin on the 11th August and phones will cost $389 for the 4GB RAM 64GB memory version. A $329 3GB RAM 16GB memory model will be also launched but at a later date.

So that’s the OnePlus 2. Now that it is official what do you think of the phone? Is it everything you hoped? Are you upset for the lack of NFC, SD and fast charging? Will you buy one? Let us know in the comments below.

    … and a thickness of 9.85mm – DAAAAAAMN! I just can’t understand why the hell they made so huge top and buttom borders with this fatness. They should learn to make compacts from mi4i

      That`s thick brother 😀
      I don`t mind though, using a 9mm phone with a rubber cover, so thickness is around 10-11mm and it feels fine. It`s a man’s phone, not 6-7mm girly.

        You can use a 4mm bumper if you like) But IMHO this is ain’t the flagship killer specs

          It would had been a flagship killer if it was priced 350$ for the 64GB.
          And honestly: 16GB phones without SD cards should die!

          • Atomicrus

            Well when Apple discontinued to make 16Gb models other brands will go the same line to minimum 32Gb storage)))

            You know that the 64 gig version costs like 380 bucks… Thats 30 dollars more that you are willing to pay lol… And look at the price diference of another brands ( Apple, Samsung etc)

          At that price bra it is. You can`t have top of the line specs and quality build for much less, buy the Iphone 6+ or Samsung S6 Edge for 600$ if you want, for me at 349$ that is a flagship killer.

          • Atomicrus
            July 28, 2015

            Can you just tell what flagships been killed with first model? What Brands suffered from Oneplus sales? Oneplus never changed the game of the mobile world. Most of price drops been made by B/C brands and Xiaomi, Meizu, Lenovo. Not the OPO. And 1st echelon flagships don’t give a fck of the overhyped mistrust company) And as you said, it’s only a flagship killer for you) I might think if you have a spare 1K bucks you would never bought Oneplus Two, it is a flagship for most with a low budget and big wants)

            • Dante
              July 28, 2015

              totally dont agree with you.. but we all have our own opinions ( and it seems u are very angry about the first iteration of the device)

            • Atomicrus
              July 28, 2015

              I’m not angry at all, try to read my post with the “)” that i use. First OPO been great, they spoiled it with back swaps, no fastcharge and other things that #neversettle PR team promised of) But second is a average phone. Just Full HD, no SD again, no NFC, no Fastcharge, no unique new features, except the Apple minded modes toggle. That is what i can’t call a flagship, and even a flagship killer. By the end of the year most of OnePlus2 specs will be avarage. I hope some big player will announce new phones in a couple of months

              What dont you argee with? Xiaomi, Meizu and Lenovo have all been offering flagship phones at this price range long before OP even existed.

            • Dante
              July 28, 2015

              Yes they did and they were really flawed just like the OpO was but clear to be from all the phones i got last year with the opo i had perhaps the best experience (the only flaws were camera related which were fixed…..3 months ago -_-) i really liked the experience i got from it

            • balcobomber25
              July 29, 2015

              They were flawed?? How exactly? The Mi3 was one of the best flagships every released for it’s time.

            • Dante
              July 30, 2015

              I loved the mi3 because if its software but it had lots of bugs some battery problems even heatup on sd800 wich didnt happen on my g2 and at launch the camera wasnt optimized at all

            • balcobomber25
              July 30, 2015

              MIUI has always run a little hotter than other UI’s. It was the same with the Mi4 and SD801. But there are thousands of forum posts about issues with the G2 heating up as well as having battery issues and numerous software bugs. No pone is immune to software bugs, some are better at managing them than other but every phone suffers from them. I never had any issues with the camera on the Mi3.

            • Steven Fox
              July 28, 2015

              Nope, if I had 1k i would never spend it on a phone, hell I would never spend more than 300$, simply can`t justify it.

    Without any survey I can say that most readers of Gizchina are not fans of Oneplus co. 😀 😀 😀
    i am wondering why?

    • Atomicrus
      July 28, 2015

      i own the Oneplus One, and i don’t see any reasons why i should buy the second. It’s just ugly and has lots of cons. It’s average

      • Fred
        July 28, 2015

        I am fan of the design of the One. But let’s be fair the built quality is fast superior to the One. And with the wooden covers the phone is not ugly at all.

        • Atomicrus
          July 28, 2015

          Build quality is average. Repaired mine, been inside and even buttons on a glue is just a mess. Nothing superior inside. Xiaomi build is way better. Wooden covers that cost a 50 backs, no thanks. Even they fcked up on first model back swaps)

          • Fred
            July 28, 2015

            Don’t worry, someone somewhere will sell copies at 15$.

            I really dislike this company, their invite system and stupids forum moderators pi##ed me off too many times. But this phone is tempting.

            I will not be surprise if Xiaomi come up with something to kill Oneplus once and for all.

            Anyway, long story short, as you said below: The 1+ Two is good, but not the 2016 flagship killer, not even 2015.

            • Lukas
              July 28, 2015

              xiaomi have no means to kill oneplus, if oneplus would operate only in asia, then yes, but globally they cannot do much to them

            • balcobomber25
              July 28, 2015

              Xiaomi sells phones over all the world. They may not have official stores in the west but they still have strong sales there. By entering Brazil, Xiaomi now sells phones in 4 of the top 5 biggest markets in the World. The only one they are no in is the US, which is a very tough market to break into.

              No to mention One Plus can only officially be ordered in about 16 countries. So it’s really not all that different from Xiaomi’s model.

      I’m a OnePlus fan, I love my OPO and I’ve had it problem free for just over 12 months now…

      The way I came across OnePlus was when I stumbled upon GizChina early last year… So thanks for that at least! 🙂

      Things were better when they were in bed with Cyanogen but ahh well, things change I guess…

      For me I have never been a big fan of Oppo or their designs, the One was just a Find 7 with cosmetic modifications and different software. And then there is the invite system.

    Looks like an Elephone. For the price is Ok, invite system is shit, they don’t ship everywhere so costs will rise buying with resellers, No SD and NFC? I think the Mi5 will be the flagship killer later this year

        July 28, 2015

        for that reason if you buy one from China you won’t get all those bands enabled.

    I really got annoyed at how they always over-promised and under-delivered. Up until I sold my OPO a few months ago, the touch issues had still not been resolved (despite a half-dozen promises that update x fixed them). Also, I bought the phone for the swap style covers, only one of which ever materialized (with much delay). I would also say the phone was very buggy for a time, but I guess compared to many of the phones reviewed on this site, it was relatively stable:)

    • Fred
      July 28, 2015

      “over-promised and under-delivered”.
      Well said my friend. You just summarize it perfectly. It just reminds me this interview of their CEO saying that they compete with the devices of 2015 but the ones of the next year.

  16. MaxPower
    July 28, 2015

    well, I’ve been skeptical about this phone but now i think it’s a phone to keep an eye on.

    camera seems fantastic, with OIS and laser autofocus (looking forward to see what’s capable of)

    all LTE bands are enabled for a true world phone!

    big battery, fingerprint scanner.

    price is also great (only 10% more expensive than last year model)

    no SD card slot, no NFC, no wireless charging is not a big deal for me.
    the only downside to me is no fast charging
    (did i really read that it’s missing??)

    another concern is their ROM, i already read it’s not great (not a surprise since it’s on early stage)

    and again their invite system, let’s see if it’s really improved.

    waiting for reviews and user experience.
    I’ll keep an eye on this phone for sure

      Oxygen OS 2.0 is said to be “near-stock Android”, which is better than any other bloatware-charged brand-customized OS 😀

      • MaxPower
        July 28, 2015

        that was smart from them, and i honestly would not blame the OS if it’s not smooth because it’s new.

        hopefully it’s better than what i read.

        i still can’t believe the phone doesn’t support fast charging though. I’ve got rid of all my 1A adapters long time ago.

        • pa5t1s
          July 28, 2015

          1000mAh adapters? umm, can I suggest that you use 2100mAh chargers? 😛

          • MaxPower
            July 28, 2015

            that’s what i only have now.
            2100mAh at home and 2400mAh in the car.

            i don’t think you can safely use those with this OP2 if it doesn’t support fast charging.

            I might be wrong, i guess we’ll wait for feedbacks.

              I think your right. Even knew it took 3-4 hours to charge it fully, I was coming from a phone that took an entire night to charge so to me that was fast lol. I would still get a full day and a half out of the battery with normal usage but it did take a while to charge. Could have been my charger too.

            • MaxPower

              July 28, 2015

              Maybe mine was defective lol. I never had good charging time with it, that was always my biggest complaint about it. Aside from the boring white color.

              July 28, 2015

              That has become my favorite feature on the Mx5. It takes about 10 minutes to go from 0-25% and a little over 40 minutes to get to 80%. I don’t know how I ever lived without this.

    • balcobomber25
      July 28, 2015

      I can’t get by the hideous design and how heavy and thick it is. For me a 9.9mm phone in 2015 is not a flagship. Design matters too much to me. And I wouldn’t touch a phone with an 810, not without gloves at least!

      Having said that I like the look of Oxygen and if you can get invite it is a good deal, but thats only if you can get an invite. Without one these are selling for over $400 and $500 respectively.

      • MaxPower
        July 28, 2015

        it is a good deal if there’s no overheating.
        i don’t mind the design, it’s not a Huawei but i still kinda like it.

        I’m sure they are going to get a lot of new customers with the support of LTE band 20 in EU and all those north America bands.
        that was really smart

          Techradar already had a hands on and said in their few minutes playing Asphalt it started to get warm.

          Including all the bands was an incredibly smart idea, I wonder if it will be one world mode phone or if they have different models for different markets like the Zenfone does.

          • MaxPower

            looks like it will be 2 versions.
            I don’t think it’s bad though.
            For example i often travel between US and EU but i spend most of the time in the US where i would finally take advantage of 4G speed and use 3G everytime i go overseas.

            SD801 with metal body was already warm, if it stays that warm it slightly warmer I’ll be ok with it.

            the Price is Right, but if you get the phone from official channel.
            i wouldn’t buy this one from resellers (but this is only my opinion).

            for sure(on paper) this one is a MI Note killer.

            • balcobomber25
              July 28, 2015

              The Mi Note was DOA lol. It was a phone that just never made sense from Xiaomi, there really wasn’t a huge demand for it and internally it was no better than the Mi4 (except for a slightly better camera).

              I agree if you can get an invite (and you like the hideous and thick styling) this is a very good deal. (although you can get the LeTV 1 for even cheaper, and the MX5 for the same price with no invite needed). On the reseller market these will be incredibly overpriced.

            • MaxPower
              July 28, 2015

              assuming this scenario:

              – you can easily get an invite
              – the phone doesn’t fry
              – the Rom is decent

              then this one seems to be a better deal to me because:

              the cameras are comparable but this one has OIS

              this one supports LTE US bands and EU band 20.

              the 64GB version costs almost like the 32GB version of the Meizu thru resellers.

              all the benefits of buying from an official channel rather than resellers.

              all those conditions need to be satisfied simultaneously otherwise the choice goes on the MX5

            • balcobomber25
              July 28, 2015

              All of what you say does make sense but for me I just cant get over the design. 9.9mm and 175grams for a 2015 Flagship is horrible to me. I hate chunky phones.

            • MaxPower
              July 28, 2015

              right, i didn’t include design because it’s up to personal taste.

            • sere83
              July 28, 2015

              Yeah I feel the same, as an OPO owner though I think support is nice to have and all the 4G bands bands and OIS. these are the only things bothering me about the MX5,

            • balcobomber25
              July 29, 2015

              I live in a country where the MX5 has full LTE so it largely depends where you live. As for OIS it is nice to have but we still need to see how good the camera on the OP2 is. If it isn’t a good camera, OIS is useless. I have a feeling it is going to be very good but it still needs to be tested. The MX5 has an amazing camera and I never really miss not having OIS.

      • sere83
        July 28, 2015

        Exactly my thoughts. The 810 doesn’t bother as much as I think it will be ok in day to day use but the horrible design and thickness are just so bad not sure I can get past them either. How are you finding the MX5? I’m still seriously considering it, although the lack of OIS was a shame…

        • balcobomber25
          July 29, 2015

          I could probably get by with an 810 as well, I dont play a lot of games but I do edit a lot of photos and videos which sometimes can be tasking on the processor.

          I love the MX5. This is my first Meizu I have ever owned and they may have won me over as a fan. I have yet to find a single issue with it. Battery life is good (plus supports fast charge), it feels amazing in the hand (lighter and thinner than an iPhone 6 plus), and the camera is exceptional.

          • Bailey
            July 29, 2015

      they said around 3 hours

      • mf1gt3r

        The price is ok. I guess they had to loose the nfc and all to keep the price down.

        • Lukas

          it looks like there are pins on the back of phone, so nfc might be possible

    EU/India – GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz; WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/5/8; FDD-LTE: Bands: 1/3/5/7/8/20

    India having TDD-LTE so i think it supoort both TDD-and FDD

    Interesting camera specs. OIS is a must have right now. The fingerprint is also a nice feature.

  20. Adam Irvine
    July 28, 2015

    I was quite anti this so called upgrade but after combing through the specs and getting to the price ive come to this…

    To be fair, for £289 the 64GB 4GB Ram is a pretty good deal… What other manufacturer offers that much spec for that much money with good support and build quality and is also a company you can buy internationally directly from..? I don’t think there is another company…

    So ye, it’s kinda got my vote now, at least on the value for money front!

      • Adam Irvine
        July 28, 2015

        Ye lol, I’m not sure it’s even comparable… all I hear is people moaning about the poor camera quality and how bulky it is?

        • balcobomber25
          July 28, 2015

          You think the Two is going to be any less bulky? The dimensions are almost spot on between the Zenfone and OP2, the Zenfone is a little thicker, the OP2 is a little heavier:

          Zenfone 2: 152.5 x 77.2 x 10.9 (170g)
          OnePlus 2: 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.9 (175g)

              July 28, 2015

              I dont understand why it is even that big. We are seeing most flagships these days being under 8mm and 160g and they are all using similar components that this has.

        • Dante
          July 28, 2015

          Lol it is really bad and i really wanted it until i got one to test at my local warehouse
          It is indeed very powerfull has an ok battery good/ok screen and thats all … The only use i could find on it was for using as a portable gaming device for kids who want Power on the cheap. ( relatively) they can even get the cheapest 2 ram 720p version it has still a very powerfull processor in it. But wow i hate the device myself

    • balcobomber25
      July 28, 2015

      The problem is though, how many people will actually be able to buy the phone for that price? Most will never get an invite and will resort to resellers where it will be over $500 US for that same phone. It’s the same with the One last year, if you can get an invite it is a good deal, but thats a big if. I have no faith that the invite system will be any better this time around.

      • Adam Irvine
        July 28, 2015

        Balco, I’m with you I really am, I know we had plenty of disagreements regarding OnePlus and their strange ways before and this time round I have very mixed feelings about what they’re trying to do… I don’t believe the invite system will be much better if any and the phone to me really isn’t ‘WowWee’ material either… I’m not sure where it’s heading bit I doubt they’ll carry on with their previous success with this type of product release…

        • balcobomber25
          July 28, 2015

          It’s not a horrible phone and it’s actually cheaper than I thought it was going to be. I just don’t understand why you would keep a system that caused so much negative publicity and resentment from the community. There are other ways to have limited sales and wait for the costs of parts to fall without having invites. Xiaomi and others have flash sales, other companies do pre-order codes (like Elephone). They are all doing the same thing but the invite system has a bad stigma to it.

  21. RiverHorser

    July 28, 2015

    only full hd, super thick, huge bezels and a processor that is known to have issues? Very very underwhelming. I don’t understand how they even dear associate this phone to VR when it only has full hd rez, which is bad for VR.

    Sorry, no. My next phone will have to be samsung again. I want to move away from samsung but no one is doing things right enough…

  23. Sam Nicko

  24. E8hffff
    July 28, 2015

    Nice looking phone, but high priced for the lack of front line features. I’m probably going to get a Elephone Vowney.

  25. balcobomber25
    July 28, 2015

    For $329/$389 its actually a pretty good deal. The problem is the invite system rears its ugly head again. They can say its better this time around, but they arent exactly the most believable company. For $329 right now I can buy a Meizu MX5 which matches this thing spec for spec, doesnt have a SoC that is known to overheat and doesn’t require an invite to buy it. I am a little shocked they don’t have a white, gold or silver color option. The darker colors make this thing look even thicker than it really is, which in turn makes it look uglier. The wood option is the least offensive, lighter colors would actually make it look somewhat better.

  26. July 28, 2015

    To be honest guys, 1+2 just got on my list of possible smartphones and it is a VERY STRONG contender to the likes of Zenfone 2 4GB/64GB, Nubia z9 Max and Galaxy Note 4/Edge. Waiting to see how much the Axon will go for in China and also what Zuk is bringing to the party before I decide. Have to get at least 2 smartphones from that list for me.

    Though I am definitely going for the 64GB model. 16GB is waaaay too small considering no SD card slot. Gonna have to go the Balco way with USB OTG … hehe.

  27. balcobomber25
    July 28, 2015

    Techradar has already had a hands on with it and they said the SD 810 does heat up:

    “During a racing game of Asphalt 8 from EA, the phone ran a little warmer than I’d liked but it was kind of expected since the Snapdragon 810 has been accused of overheating in other devices like the LG G Flex 2.”

    “I’m particularly interested in this element, as OnePlus has promised that it’s worked with Qualcomm to stop the issue being a big problem – it’ll be interesting to see how the phone performs under a stress test.”

    it doses look nice, with this meterial should have premium feal, and pricing is more then good.
    but, for me…it’s too big, so it’s not for me.
    on first, i don’t like some stuff, but…:
    i guess on this price, all buyers will have to pay TAX (25% in my case, on allready bigger price for EU then price for US and Asia),
    and battery should be bigger, but we will se more about that later.
    we all know SD810 have issues, but let’s wait with thoughts about that also.

    generally, it is nice phone, but not “2016 flagship killer”, SD620 wil come in month or two,and Samsung’s Exinos is allready hire. who want best HW, will go for phones with that SoC.
    some other curent flagship would cost me less to buy with subsides, then this..and it does have SAME HW, and some of them better screens, Cameras, batttery life…

    so, to this phone bigger concern shoud be last years flagships with similar pricing. is it really any better then them!? 2016 flagship will cost more, but it will be true flagship, not 6 months late copycats

    Looks like am late to the party…Anyway, here’s my 1+2 cents..(pun intended), after streaming the nauseating app presentation…

    ->Camera looks pretty neat and powerful,
    ->Early hands-on suggest it may not have the infamous overheating,
    ->Fingerprint scanner seems pretty accurate
    ->Pricing is still unbeatable
    ->Oxygen OS is pretty clean + it will most definitely get even better roms from the community

    While I admit it’s no Oppo r7 plus in terms of look, it’s still better looking that the original, not to mention the smaller compact size..

    So why am I not getting this, at least until the real reviews hit, its sheer thickness and weight put me off..despite all the eye drooling specs.

    Your move, Jiayu 😀

    • balcobomber25
      July 30, 2015

      Early hands on have been mixed about the heating, some noticed it got warm others didn’t. The problem is Oneplus didn’t allow them to do anything strenuous that would have caused the processor to heat up. Until there are some hands on from consumers and reviewers we won’t really know.

      Also I wouldn’t ever call this a compact size. It is only slightly shorter than the One while being thicker and heavier:

      One – 152.9 x 75.9 x 8.9 mm (162 grams)
      Two – 151.8 x 74.9 x 9.9 mm (175 grams)

    • balcobomber25
      July 30, 2015

      It’s not going to work. It’s going to be a disaster just like last year. But every reseller will have more than enough to stock of the phone. And they will all sell it for $50-100 more than retail.
