OnePlus has spent the last few weeks hyping the upcoming OnePlus 2 and now new photos have revealed our first real look at the device. The photos come from China’s wireless regulation department, Tenaa, so they’re likely legit. The OnePlus 2 itself looks as we’d expect it to look, similar to the original, but still carrying a few differences.
The most notable difference, of course, is the fingerprint sensor and possible home button on the front of the device. OnePlus has promised that the phone would bring a fingerprint sensor, but it’s impossible to tell if the sensor doubles as a physical home button or whether it’s simply for your fingerprint. We can’t see any capicitative buttons, so it’s fully possible that OnePlus is using on-screen keys this time around. That being said, the capicitative buttons could be hidden until they’re lit up.
On the back, we see the same Sandstone Black color and texture from the original model, something that many fans will be happy to see making a return. The camera is carrying a new sensor with it, possibly for laser autofocus, though there could be plenty of other uses for it. The sides are matte black and bring in a power button, volume rocker and what could either be a SIM tray or a dedicated camera button. It could go either way with the amount of emphasis that OnePlus has placed on the camera.
In any case, fans of OnePlus shouldn’t be in for any big surprises in the OnePlus 2′s design. Previous rumors have pointed towards the phone being smaller than its predecessor, yet still maintaining the same display size, which should be nice for those who prefer a slightly more compact phone. We’ll keep you up to date on further news and leaks regarding the OnePlus 2.
