OnePlus 2 will not make its appearance in North America as soon as you thought. Even if things didn’t go that well for the Chinese manufacturer at its launch, the device is still seeing a great wave of newcomers on the invite waiting list. But the waiting is only going to get longer, at least for some regions of the world. OnePlus announced that the North American shipments of its newest device will be delayed for 2 to 3 weeks.
People who already have an invite will be able to get their OnePLus 2 smartphone starting tomorrow (August 11th), but you will have to give it a day or two for the package to physically reach your home. If you are from North America, your money is good too, but you won’t get the product as soon as the rest of the world. It will simply not ship to Canada and the US until production is back on track.
What is OnePlus 2 all about?
If you are considering getting an invite for one of these “flagship breaker” smartphones – as the Chinese are branding it – , you should know what it’s made of, right?
The device has a 5.5” Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen at 1080 x 1920 pixels, which brings it to 401 pixel density. You get Android 5.1 with an Oxygen UI, the proprietary software OnePlus has been using since earlier this year, after the fallout with Cyanogen. There’s also a 13MP main camera with a 5MP secondary sensor in the front.
Everything is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) SoC paired with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 16 or 64 GB of space. There is no MicroSD card support for the device. Everything is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. Another interesting aspect of the OnePlus 2 is the microUSB v2.0 Type-C reversible connector. The smartphone accepts dual-nano SIMs.
