OnePlus 2: Another new hardware feature confirmed

OnePlus just revealed another detail for the upcoming OnePlus 2. The company announced on Tuesday that it plans to pack the device with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, giving it a big advantage over most current flagship Android phones.

That should mean faster load times, smoother action for games and slow-motion video, and some “never-before-seen energy saving features.” Additional RAM also means improved multi-tasking, with more apps able to run in the background. OnePlus notes that LPDDR4 RAM also consumes less power.

We already know that the OnePlus 2 is set to pack USB-C support, a fingerprint reader, a Snapdragon 810 processor and will cost less than $450. Other rumored specs include a dual lens camera in back, an 8-megapixel shooter in front and some sort of metal frame.

The new phone won’t get an official unveiling until July 27, when the company plans to reveal the OnePlus 2 with some sort of virtual reality presentation. However, a few contest winners have already seen the device and called it “premium,” “fabulous” and “perfect.”

We can’t wait to see the OnePlus 2, though we assume the Chinese phone-maker has plenty more tidbits to share before the final announcement. Check back soon for the latest news, leaks and rumors surrounding this very highly anticipated smartphone.
