OnePlus 2 Touted as '2016 Flagship Killer'
OnePlus has been never so confident about its smartphone than now. The Chinese company ahead of its July 27 event where it will reveal the OnePlus 2 smartphone has branded it the '2016 flagship killer.' The OnePlus 2 title given means that the company believes its smartphone will be better than the flagships launching next year.

To recall, the OnePlus One smartphone was launched in April last year with some staggering specifications at a rather low price and was called as the '2014 flagship killer'.

OnePlus took to its social channels (Facebook and Twitter) to thank partners who worked with the company for the OnePlus 2 smartphone. The post said, "The wait is almost over. Thank you to all of our partners who helped make the #OnePlus2 possible! Together, we've created the 2016 Flagship Killer."

The post by OnePlus included an image with names of the partner companies imprinted. Some of the companies named by OnePlus include Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, Samsung, Japan Display Inc, Ricoh, and Everlight among others.

OnePlus on Wednesday announcedthat its OnePlus 2 smartphone would get a "new and improved" invite system. The company confirmed that it would have more invites on offer, alongside having "more launch inventory than last time". Much like last time, OnePlus 2 buyers would receive invites to share with friends, but this time OnePlus claims they would arrive faster.

A number of specifications and details of the OnePlus 2 smartphone have been revealed by the company, including dual-SIM support; a 3300mAh battery; Oxygen OS (likely to be as close to stock Android); a fingerprint sensor; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC; a USB Type-C port; 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and possibly a metal build. The company has tipped the pricing of the smartphone to be between $322 (roughly Rs. 20,500) and $450 (roughly Rs. 28,500).

OnePlus is set to launch its OnePlus 2 smartphone at a virtual reality event on July 27.
