Manufacturer confirms its next flagship will carry a USB Type-C port. Other specifications include a Snapdragon 810 SoC and 13 MP rear camera.

While the smartphone itself has yet to see an official reveal, its creators are already confirming various specifications for the device.

After revealing that the OnePlus 2 would indeed sport a Snapdragon 810 SoC, OnePlus has now confirmed that it will sport a 13 MP rear camera a USB Type-C port.

The new USB Type-C port is already in use on certain Apple MacBooks and Google's new Pixel Chromebook, but no other smartphones so far have shipped with this particular reversible port. Unlike existing Micro-USB 2.0 ports, the Type-C port offers both faster transfer rates and more power for faster recharging. Physically, the port will be similar to Apple's Lightning port.

The OnePlus 2 is expected to retail for about 322 Euros or $350 USD, which would make it notably more expensive than the lauded OnePlus One. Nevertheless, this would still make the OnePlus 2 much less expensive compared to other flagships like the Galaxy S6 or iPhone 6.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
