In 2015, OnePlus made a big move. After the launch of the OnePlus Two flagship, we were pretty sure that we won’t be hearing anything from this company too soon, but it seems that we had a big surprise in October, when was announced the OnePlus X, a mid-range smartphone with a premium look. But it’s not the time to forget about OnePlus and its achievements, because we will catch your attention with the latest rumors about the upcoming OnePlus Three.
Even if OnePlus adopted a controversial invitation system, which limited the interested customers to buying one of the devices using an invitation which they received from friends who were lucky to get the device after participating in the contests and promotions from the OnePlus Forums. The manufacturer managed to sell over 5 million units of the first OnePlus One model, but there were 4 times more people who wanted to buy this smartphone.
In 2015, the OnePlus Two arrived with a slightly changed design, featuring a rectangular body with a new fingerprint scanner on the front side, under the screen. It was 1mm thicker and the sides were protected with a metal frame, but the display was unchanged, supporting 5.5-inch and supporting a Full HD resolution at 401ppi. The previous 32bit quad core processor has been replaced with a 64bit octa core processor, which was paired with 3GB of RAM for the model with 16GB of storage, while the model with 64GB of storage supports 4GB of RAM. The camera on the back has a resolution of 13MP and offers OIS and laser autofocus, while the front camera supports 5MP. The battery has been increased from 3100mAh to 3300mAh.
