OnePlus Two Will Feature Fingerprint Scanning Technology
With its launch only a month away, OnePlus is slowly giving out hints and details of the highly anticipated OnePlus Two. Just yesterday a new detail emerged about the phone sporting a display ranging between 5.5 and 5.7 inches and having a black matte border. Before this, OnePlus confirmed that the Two will be the first Android handset to feature a USB C-Type charging. Today, the company has revealed that the new handset will have a fingerprint sensor, and it is slated to be better than the Touch ID.
The official blog page of OnePlus reads that the fingerprint sensor is “done right. It’s refined and lightning quick, unlocking your device faster than TouchID.” It also says, “Your smartphone is your most personal device, and its security should be personal, too.”
The company assures that the sensor will not be used as a selling point of the device, but instead be a useful feature. OnePlus says the technology is meant to unlock your device and will be able to store five fingerprint profiles.
OnePlus Two is not the first device to implement fingerprint scanning within it. Samsung has done the same with its devices. However, researchers at Germany’s Security Research Labs showed that the Samsung Galaxy S5’s fingerprint scanner is not at all secure.
OnePlus Two will launch on 27th July through a virtual reality event. Currently not much is known about the spec details of the expected OnePlus handset, but we got some notable information that pointed out to its processing capacity. As per the detail leaked by the company CEO Liu Zuohu, OnePlus Two will run on Snapdragon 810 chipset along with 4GB RAM. A 5.5-inch 2K display will improve the viewing experience of the user.
There is still a little bit of time for the OnePlus Two to come out. In the meantime, you can watch our review on the OnePlus One:
