OnePlus Two pre-order

Chinese web store Geekbuying puts the smartphone OnePlus Two on pre-order with full tech specs and this fueled the rumors that the new handset will be released sooner than expected. The previous assumptions were that the next flagship from the Chinese independent manufacturer will not be launched until late 2015.

But Geekbuying promise to start delivering the smartphone from 10th of February, but after a little more time it change the date to 10th of March.

OnePlus Two tech specs

According to the website the successor of the OnePlus One will have upgraded hardware and polish design. The render accompanying the OnePlus Two shows a device with 5.5-inches screen with very this bezel and sleek finishing to the edges. The display is 1920 x 1080 pixels and the smartphone will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 powerful quad core CPU at 2.7 GHz. It will have also 3GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage.

The battery will have a capacity of 3300 mAh and the whole OnePlus Two will weight 166 grams. In the back it will have 16-megapixel camera and 5-megapixel at the front. It allegedly runs Android 4.4 with Oppo’s Color OS on top.

The problems

The earlier release date is not the only problem with this handset available for pre-order on the Chinese web store.

First is the physical buttons looks ridiculously small. They are so miniature that you need to look very closely to actually see them. And with this size their functionality will be very questionable.

Second is the Cyanogen label in the back. The original model uses Cyanogen 11S based on Android 4.4 and it has such label. But the OnePlus Two will allegedly use Color OS and it doesn’t make any sense to be labeled that way.

Third is the price. Geekbuying is offering OnePlus Two for pre-order on a “special price” – of just $538.19 as a promotion. The original cost according to the site is $865.45. This is too expensive if we take in mind that the current model is $349 for the 64GB version.

So take this notes in mind before making any pre-orders of the OnePlus Two.

Plausibility – 35%
