OnePlus confirms fingerprint scanner for the OnePlus 2

There is little doubt that Chinese startup OnePlus really wants to bring on the heat, figuratively and literally. It has already revealed that it will be using the highly contentious Snapdragon 810, v2.1, come what may. Now it is confirming that the OnePlus 2 will also have a fingerprint sensor. Of course, it's not enough for OnePlus to say that. It is also claiming that this particular sensor is a "fingerprint sensor done right", which will undoubtedly raise a few eyebrows from fans of Apple's Touch ID tech, so far considered to be the best implementation there is.

OnePlus 2 front and back sides leaked

OnePlus may already be teasing the public with not so subtle clues about its next flagship, which it has practically confirmed to be called the OnePlus 2, but it isn't exactly forthcoming with everything. Which means there's still plenty of room for speculation as well as leaks. These two latest photos, for example, betray, at least supposedly, the overall design of the smartphone, which isn't exactly that markedly different from the current generation. Except perhaps for what is allegedly a fingerprint scanner on the back side.

OnePlus 2 unveiling to happen completely in VR

One cannot claim that Chinese startup OnePlus lacks ambition or imagination. It set itself up as one that challenged the status quo in the smartphone industry, bringing out the OnePlus One as a "flagship killer", a moniker that it was, admittedly, worthy of.

Let the Type-C race begin: OnePlus 2 to blaze a trail

It almost seemed ironic that Apple, who has been waving around its proprietary Lightning connector for years, would be the first to advocate for the new USB Type-C standard. Then again, maybe because of its similarities with Lightning that Apple was quick to jump on it. Regardless, the tech industry now seems to be following suit, with some smartphone makers rumored to put it on their next flagship. Well, one is a rumor no longer. OnePlus has confirmed that, yes, the OnePlus 2 will use USB Type-C.

OnePlus One price change hopefully heralds something new

OnePlus One price change hopefully heralds something new

Last year's flagship killer just got a killer price cut. That is, if you're willing to live with 2013 or 2014 high end specs. OnePlus One, which took the Android market by surprise, has just announced another price change, but this one promised to be for good. Or at least until the next permanent price cut. It is now $50 cheaper than it was yesterday. But if you pay the original $349 price for the 64 GB model, you also get a year's subscription of Dropbox Premium.

Leaked OnePlus 2 specs reveal another “flagship killer”

Despite the rather large setback it experienced in India, it seems that there is no stopping OnePlus yet from taking their "Never Settle" motto for another spin. Dubbed the "flagship killer", at least as far as last year's generation was concerned, the OnePlus One was a formidable smartphone with a formidable price. And it seems to have a successor already popping up in leaks and benchmarks. And it seems that this OnePlus 2, as it is still currently called, might be worthy of that title as well.

OnePlus #DoesSettle: truce with Micromax, CM updates

Contrary to its slogan, it seems that startup OnePlus does know how to settle. Legally, that is. Much to the relief of fans and device owners in India, OnePlus and Micromax have mutually decided to withdraw their lawsuits in the country, paving the way for a more peaceful coexistence. At least as far as OnePlus' remaining OnePlus One stocks are concerned. Plus, smartphone owners are once again promised to get their CyanogenMod OTA update from Cyanogen, if they decide not to move over to OnePlus' own OxygenOS.
