OnePlus held a Reddit AMAA (Ask Me Almost Anything), to promote its upcoming flagship device, the OnePlus 2.
And here are the interesting bits from the thread.
OnePlus 2 Display
A redditor questioned if there would be different variants of the OnePlus 2, with respect to screen size.
To which, OnePlus posted the above image, and revealed that a OnePlus 2 is actually underneath the OnePlus One in the photo.
So, it will be smaller in dimensions. It is possible that they reduced the bezel size, or the phone could possibly be sporting a display size between 5-inches to 5.3-inches.
OnePlus 2 Camera
Camera will be a high priority, and that the OnePlus 2’s camera will have some unique features.
OnePlus 2 Battery
The OnePlus 2 will pack a massive 3300mAh battery.
Will OnePlus 2 support Custom ROMs?
The dev community has been extremely kind to us, partly – I think – because we’ve been all about giving back where we can, keeping our platform open and accessible, and encouraging the curiosity that makes Android what it is. That’s how it should be.
What about the issues related to overheating in the Snapdragon 810?
Though the reply from OnePlus did not sound very convincing, it says that the phone has been through some really extensive testing process.
One Plus 2 Charging Cable
The charging cable of the OnePlus 2, will be longer than the OnePlus One’s 3.3 feet length. It is said to be around 5 feet in length.
