OnePlus 2 will have Android M features at launch

The grand unveiling of the OnePlus 2 is set for July 27, but that hasn’t stopped its creators leaking more information out just two days ahead of launch.

A blog post from the OnePlus team reveals exciting news about OxygenOS, the company’s custom-built Android-based OS.

It comes with features that won’t be available on other devices until Android M,” reads the post.

Android M is Google’s next major update for its mobile operating system, scheduled to launch later this year.

Unfortunately, OnePlus doesn’t detail exactly which features its nabbing from Android M ahead of time.

Moving on. OnePlus also makes reference to a number of specs that we’ll see featured on its fast-approaching handset in the post.

These include a ‘reworked’ Snapdragon 810 processor, a USB-C port, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and a fingerprint sensor that’s claimed to be ‘faster than the iPhone’ – no new surprises.

OnePlus also clears up a misconception about an earlier teaser image that read ‘2016 flagship killer’ that was largely assumed to be a typo.

The company explains: “Contrary to what some of our followers on social media may have believed, our tagline is not a typo – the OnePlus 2 was not created to compete with the flagship from 2015. We’re more interested in looking further into the future.”

The post continues: “What we are unveiling on July 27 is so much more than specs,” reads the post. “It’s about seeing more than what’s right in front of you, chasing more than just benchmarks, and doing more than just competing.”

“This is the 2016 Flagship Killer. With it, you’ll be ahead of the curve, future-proof. And we wouldn’t want you to expect anything less from OnePlus.”
