Want a high-powered Android phone at a reasonable price? Specs just revealed about the OnePlus 2 show it may be the best phone you can buy for the money.
The OnePlus 2 is a follow-on to last year's OnePlus One, which at the time was a great deal. But the OnePlus 2 looks to be an even better one.
On OnePlus's forums, the company recently said the OnePlus 2 will come with a full 4GB of RAM. The company also claims that the RAM will be the newest in RAM technology, LPDDR4 (low power double data rate random access memory), which means higher-bandwidth for the RAM, while using less battery. That 4 GB of RAM beats out higher-priced "flagship phones" such as the Samsung Galaxy S6, which comes with 3 GB.
The phone will have other impressive specs as well: a fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor. However, the display may not be as impressive. One site claims that it will have a a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the same as the OnePlus One. It is also expected to have a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front one.
As for pricing, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said on Google+ post that "I can promise that the OnePlus 2 will be priced under 450 USD."
That $450 is without a contract, which means that the phone will cost about $150 to $200 less than other high-end phones. On Verizon the lowest priced unlocked Galaxy S6 sells for $600, on AT&T it sells for $685. The unlocked HTC One M9 sells for $649.
With those specs and at that price, the OnePlus 2 looks to be a winner -- probably the best value Android phone you can buy.
