The 16 GB version of this "flagship killer" costs $329 USD, while the 64 GB model costs $60 USD more.

The long-awaited OnePlus 2 has been finally unveiled and now there is less than one month left until it will hit the global market. The handset will be available in two models, one with 3 GB RAM/16 GB internal storage, and the other with 4 GB RAM/64 GB internal storage. In the United States, their prices will be $329 USD and $389 USD.

Most of the specs have been unveiled in the past, but now the whole picture is complete. These are the highlights of the OnePlus 2 "flagship killer" smartphone:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC with Adreno 430 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB or 4 GB RAM; 16 GB or 64 GB internal storage, but no microSD slot

  • Battery: 3,300 mAh
  • Case finish: kevlar, black apricot, bamboo, rosewood, sandstone black

The OnePlus 2 may not feature wireless charging and a removable battery, but it comes with a fingerprint scanner. OnePlus decided to drop NFC because most OnePlus One users have not used this feature.

Regarding the launch date mentioned in the beginning, we must add that only US and EU customers who received an invite will be able to get the OnePlus 2 next month. Unfortunately, only the 64 GB version will be available in the beginning while the 16 GB one will follow it at a later time.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
