Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has announced price cut for its flagship device oneplus 2 . Both the 16GB and the 64GB versions will now be available with price tags of Rs 20,999 (16GB) and Rs 22,999 (64GB). Before this latest official price reduction of the two variants was Rs 22,999 (16GB) and Rs 24,999 (64GB). At present, these phones are being sold exclusively on Amazon.in.
The company justified the price drop saying: “Let’s just say that thanks to both timing and scale, our operations have sized up sufficiently propelling us to offer our flagship offering as an even better proposition for your connectivity needs.”
The OnePlus 2 runs a very customized operating system called Oxygen OS, and is based on Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop). This OS was developed by OnePlus, after their partnership with Cyanogen came to an end—the OnePlus One smartphone ran a Cyanogen operating system, which was also a heavily customized version of Google’s Android. The oneplus 2 is a dual-sim smartphone, and is powered by 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB (16GB version) and 4GB (64GB) RAM. The OnePlus 2 has a 5.5-inch display with the Full HD 1,920 x 1,080-pixel resolution. The 13-megapixel rear camera has the 1.3-micron sensor, laser autofocus, dual-LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, and Optical Image Stabilization features. The phone packs in a 3,300 mAh LiPo battery.
