The Chinese smartphone manufacturer One Plus has already created an impressive name in the tech world with its initial device- the OnePlus One. And now the successor flagship the OnePlus Two has been launched. The device will be available to purchase in India, China, US and other EU countries from August 11. the 64 GB variant of the device will be priced at Rs. 24,999 and will be available via Amazon.
The specifications are amazing as the flagship features a 5.5 inch full-HD display which is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 clocked at 1.8GHz with an Adreno 430 GPU. The 4GB RAM comes along with 64 GB internal memory.
The OnePlus 2 bears a 13-megapixel rear camera with a 1.3-micron sensor, laser autofocus, dual-LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, 4K video recording, RAW image support, and OIS, apart from a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The massive 3,300mAh battery ensures lot of power to the user. It will sport dual 4G Nano-SIM cards (dual-SIM dual standby), as well as USB Type-C connectivity.
In Spite of all these we came came across five features that you would have loved to be there in this flagship device.
Expandable Memory - With no option for an external expandable memory you are stuck with either 16GB or 64 GB storage. For power-users they may be restricted from storing more games or videos all due to the limited storage space.
Higher Resolution Display - Being dubbed as a flagship device we sure will be expecting a rich high resolution display but unfortunately the OnePlus Two features a screen resolution of 1080x1920 pixels only. At the current pace flagships normally come with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels.
Quick Charge - OnePlus Two doesn’t support the Quick Charge facility. With the quick charge facility the smartphones can be charged much quicker than a standard charger. This means you will have to wait long until you get your battery juice refilled completely.
Non-removable Battery - The 3,300mAh battery is sure enough to provide all the required juice. But once it is worn out you are left with the only option of buying a new phone as the OnePlus Two device ropes in a non-removable 3,300mAh battery.
NFC - A wide range of smartphones has been launched and are also coming up with support for NFC connectivity. OnePlus One had featured the NFC connectivity and its still unknown why the feature was removed from this current flagship. With the on-board finger-print scanner the NFC would have been an impressive option for all those wireless payments.
OnePlus Two- A true flagship or not?
