It’s been about a month now since we’ve had anything to tell you about rumors for OnePlus’s second-gen handset, the presumptive OnePlus Two. While the manufacturer has confirmed that the phone’s coming, very little’s been known to date about just how it might differ from the OnePlus One. One of the few specific details that’s been mentioned is that OnePlus could give us a phone with a screen that’s slightly smaller than the original 5.5-incher. Then again, evidence of a possible mid-range OnePlus One Mini arrived to confuse the issue, leaving us unsure if this was the direction OnePlus might head in for its smaller phone, leaving the Two to be another full-sized flagship. This week, some new rumors attempt to get to the bottom of OnePlus’s intentions for the Two’s hardware.
That smaller screen? Not happening here, says this source. Instead, we’d see the OnePlus Two stick with a 5.5-inch panel. While the size might not change, a resolution bump could be in order, heading all the way up to quad HD. And despite no move to a smaller screen, OnePlus may still be able to slim the Two down, possibly by means of some narrower bezels.
As for silicon, these rumors are high-end as all get out. We’re talking Snapdragon 810, 4GB of RAM – the sort of front-of-the-pack details that first started popping up on phones at CES last week. We also hear mention of a 3300mAh battery and a price tag that could be a little higher than the One, somewhere up around the $430 level. While that might make the phone a slightly tougher sell, it sure sounds like these specs – if even close to accurate – could make that higher price worth it.
