OnePlus 2’s Oxygen OS Will Take Advantage of Android M Features

In a few days, up and rising Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is going to host an event during which its second-gen smartphone, the OnePlus 2, will get unveiled.

In an attempt to create more hype around the upcoming product launch, the company is today shedding more light on the capabilities of said phone.

As we already know, after breaking away from Cyanogen, who signed an exclusive deal with Indian device maker Micromax, OnePlus had to fend for itself in the software department. So the startup assembled a team and put it to work on what would become known as Oxygen OS.

Now, OnePlus says that the smartphone will come with Android M-reminiscent features on board, features that won’t come to other devices until Android M rolls out.

Well, Google is prepping to unleash Android M this autumn. On top of that, the company is expected to roll out not one but two Nexus smartphones later this year. Soon afterwards, other OEMs will start spawning out Android M devices, so the OnePlus 2 won’t be unique for long.

The OnePlus 2 was recently spotted in TENAA, where it was revealed that the “flagship killer” would come equipped with a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor paired with an Adreno 430 graphics processing unit and 4GB of RAM. The handset will also pack 32GB of internal memory and a 3,300 mAh battery.

As confirmed by OnePlus, its high-end device will come with USB Type-C port, as well as dual-SIM and 4G LTE support.

It will also pack a 13MP photo snapper on the back plus a 5MP selfie camera in the front, but also a fingerprint scanner under the Home button.

While most of the specs of the handset have leaked online, it’s still pretty early to tell whether the OnePlus 2 will manage to live up to the name of its predecessor. We do expect it to be a very capable phone, if we put concerns of the overheating Snapdragon 810 out of mind.

OnePlus swears that their revised version of the chip won’t give customers any troubles, but it remains to be seen if this is the case or not.
