Chinese Regulator Unveils the OnePlus 2 Ahead of Event

Unfortunately in the world of technology you have to get the approval of regulators to ensure your product is “okay” for that country’s use. Unfortunately not every regulator is able to keep things quiet, and that’s exactly what’s apparently happened with the OnePlus 2 as Chinese wireless regulator Tenaa has released images of the smartphone a little earlier than planned.

OnePlus is set to fully unveil the device on July 27 and although they’ve revealed almost everything about the internals of the device, we still have no idea what it’ll look like. That all may have changed though if Tenaa’s leak is legitimate.

Spotted over at Engadget China, Tenaa has uploaded some pretty detailed shots of the device from all angles, and if they are images of the actual device we can expect the fingerprint sensor to also act as a kind of “home” button, a la Samsung and Apple.

The camera on the device also looks a little different from the OnePlus One, and looks as if it may take a leaf out of LG’s book with laser autofocus. Also, oddly, the camera is pretty low down on the back of the device.

Of course, until OnePlus announce something more solid, it’s probably best to take this with a pinch of salt.

What we know for sure about the OnePlus 2 is that it’ll come with a Snapdragon 810, 4GB RAM, a 3,300mAh battery, a 13-megapixel camera, and dual-SIM support. The invite system will be overhauled too meaning more people will get the device when it launches. Unfortunately we’re yet to hear anything on price, but here’s hoping it’s in a similar price range to the One’s $300 tag.
