OnePlus 2 Android smartphone to have Dual-SIM support and come with a innovative Invite system
OnePlus has been working on its next flagship smartphone named OnePlus 2, which will be released in July. Even though OnePlus is not a big smartphone brand, it has been able to create a strong effect on its competitors.
OnePlus has announced that its OnePlus 2 smartphone will get a “new and improved” invite system. In addition, on Wednesday, Liu Zuohu (aka Pete Lau) OnePlus CEO affirmed on Weibo that the forthcoming flagship will support dual-SIMs.
Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder disclosed details about OnePlus 2 invite system and introduced a few key improvements in a blog post on Wednesday. The company affirmed that it will have more invites on offer, alongside having “more launch inventory than last time”. It clarified this means “30-50x last year.” With OnePlus 2, the company will introduce Reservation list, which will let customers that are interested to sign-in via email.
The process of reservation is also quite simple, fans can just email their names and an official invite would reach them as soon as it starts sending them out. However, while sending invites, OnePlus will give priority to its previous supporters first.
OnePlus has a different approach for the launch of its new smartphone this year, as compared to last year. The new invite system for the OnePlus 2 admits that a lot of issues had troubled the OnePlus One. Last year, the customers had to wait to get invites, which were either available through its social media channels or via forums.
Pei stressed that the company has tried to keep the process as simple as possible and said, “Although most people understand and support us, we’ve also received some less-positive feedback. Some people thought it was too difficult and time consuming to obtain an invite or thought it was all some big marketing stunt. With the OnePlus 2, we’ve taken this feedback to heart and are introducing a few key improvements to the purchase experience.”
As earlier, OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu (aka Pete Lau) continued teasing features of the OnePlus 2 smartphone via social channels. CEO Liu Zuohu unveiled on Weibo that the OnePlus 2 will beat its predecessor in yet another aspect.
The second-gen “flagship killer” will sport not one, but two SIM card slots, which can be a useful feature for several users.
The major specifications already confirmed for the OnePlus 2 smartphone is the screen size of 5.5-inch, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC, a 3300mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, Oxygen OS, fingerprint sensor, 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, and possibly a metal build. The company has hinted that the smartphone would be priced between $322 (roughly Rs. 20,500) and $450 (roughly Rs. 28,500).
On one hand, where OnePlus has received support from so many people, at the same time, it has also paid attention to all critics and says that improvements are being made to further better user experience. OnePlus 2 smartphone is all set to be launched on July 27 at a virtual reality event.
