OnePlus 2 Pricing Confirmed, Will Not Cross More Than Rs 28,500
Chinese electronics start-up, OnePlus was one of the biggest success stories of 2014. The newbie started off with the flagship killer, OnePlus 2, which conquered the mid-segment smartphone market. It was a feature-rich phone with top-notch specs that came with a reasonable price tag. The OnePlus 2 is probably one of the most anticipated Android devices of the year. With several enhancements and revisions compared to its predecessor, the OnePlus One, the OnePlus 2 should be a force to be reckoned with.
Till now, it was estimated that the OnePlus 2 device will be priced at $500 (Rs 31,762). But, OnePlus posted in its Twitter page that the device won’t be higher than $450 (Rs 28,586).

Previously, it was confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will cost more than $322. Pete Lau hinted the price of the OnePlus 2 as roughly around Rs. 25,000. This is around Rs. 3,000 more than the original OnePlus One at launch. This may be because the Snapdragon 810 v2.1 costs 60% more than the Snapdragon used in the OnePlus One. A recent OnePlus blog reads that the 810 is much more powerful than its younger counterpart, the 801 and is a much more expensive component. Hence, according to the post, the minimum cost of the OnePlus 2 will be higher than $322 (Rs. 20,500 approx). With this, we now have a confirmed price range of the device.
So far we know that OnePlus 2 will run on Snapdragon 810 chipset along with 4GB RAM. The phone will sport a 5.5-inch 2K display that will improve the viewing experience of the user. The OnePlus 2 will also have a USB C-Type, the first in a flagship device by a major manufacturer. Just a few days back, the company revealed that the phone will come with a built-in fingerprint scanner.
For now, all we can say is, based on the specs and the price, the OnePlus 2 will hit it harder and better than the OnePlus One. OnePlus ruled out all the rumors of the temporarily titled OnePlus 2 and stated that the much-awaited device will make a debut in the third quarter of this year.
