Hot on the heels of the official OnePlus 2 announcement today, Maxis has released a tweet teasing that they might be bringing in the device sooner than we think. The telco also is the sole retail channel for the OnePlus One in Malaysia and this doesn’t surprise us one bit.

To recap on the specs of the OnePlus 2, it has a similar 5.5 inch screen with Full HD 1080p resolution as the OnePlus One with an improved IPS display with better contrast and colours. Under the hood is the latest Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor mated to a top of the line 4GB LD-DDR4 RAM, which should make it quite a monster in the performance department. In terms of storage you get to choose between 16GB or 64GB flavours, but neither versions are expandable via microSD.  It will also have nano dual-SIM support with 4G LTE for zippy surfing.

As for the camera, you will get a 13 megapixel f/2.0 rear snapper with laser focus and Optical Image Stabilisation as well as a 5 megapixel selfie cam up front. Last but not least, the device will have a 3,300mAh battery keeping everything juiced by way of a reversible USB Type C port.

The OnePlus 2 is priced at US$329 for the 16GB model and US$389 for the 64GB version, which is roughly RM1,256 and RM1,485 respectively in our current exchange rate. It’s very likely Maxis will have a plan to go with the phone, but the big question is how soon will we be getting it?

Correct if I'm wrong please, but the back casing is removable that means it's not like a solid piece of metal like the htcone m9 or iphone 6 et all?

    There are styleswap covers that let you change the back without the need of tools. Comes in a variety of textures including wood and bamboo.

    i have NFC in my galaxy nexus before and trust me you won't use it as often as you think. so no big deal to me

      hohoho

      Nah, been using NFC since 2012. I have NFC-supported hansfree which is very useful as I always forgot to setup hansfree before driving. And then I also have th NFC headphone and speaker. They are quite useful in a way, and vary widely depends on how you use it. And my 1+1 NFC has never failed me!

    yoki

    oh no. how am I going to pay for my Roti Canai and Teh Tarik without my Google Wallet/Android pay if I don't have NFC. Plus I need to pair with my speaker using BLUETOOTH!!!!NFC way better. Bluetooth drains battery.

    Noob 1+2.

      You do know NFC pairs BT devices using BT right? NFC is just a handshake protocol to minimize the need for searching and pairing. But most BT devices nowadays need to pair only ONCE. Most of the time when both devices are on and within range of each other they will pair automatically. That seems to be the case with my speaker and headset anyways. Dont know about sending files though…

        Alan

        You are right. NFC is just some handshake protocol to minimize pairing.
        Indeed, it send over some phone info for pairing.
        But after that, all those BT device, such as handfree, car stereo, BT speaker are sending audio data via Bluetooth. So some one in this reply said he communicate with speaker using just NFC is just half correct.
        As for sending files other other huge data, WiFi Direct and Bluetooth is used for data transfer after NFC trigger, you will notice the WiFi of your phone will stop while the data is being transfer. Or, you will also notice the bluetooth device on your phone will auto turn on for data transfer. WiFi direct is the much faster way to transfer file.

        You can perform these operation without the need of NFC, but it take much more manual step for pairing or sending file. With NFC, by just installing the right apps, then the NFC can work flawless by just touching the screen once, then the whole pairing and data sending will be done on it's own.

        All in all, NFC bring more convenient way for pairing between device. So it is a good thing to have.

        NFC actually play the much important role as a wave payment device, it is very useful and convenient in the future payment method.
