OnePlus has announced a price cut for its flagship device, the OnePlus 2. The 16GB version of the phone will now cost Rs 20,999, while the 64GB version will be priced Rs 22,999. The company justified the price drop saying: “Let’s just say that thanks to both timing and scale, our operations have sized up sufficiently propelling us to offer our flagship offering as an even better proposition for your connectivity needs.”
OnePlus 2, the company built a device that offers incredible value with a spec sheet that is at par with most of the high-end devices. The dual-SIM smartphone rocks a 5.5-inch full-HD display, a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 bundled with 4GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a fingerprint scanner and a 3,300 mAh battery. OnePlus 2 runs on OxygenOS, based on the latest Android version Lollipop 5.1. It is the first device to ship with OnePlus own operating system out of the box.

It might be useful for say novices, but probably less so for Android veterans who have spent a lot of time fine tuning their Android home screens.
OnePlus recently released the OxygenOS 2.2.1 update for the OnePlus 2 smartphone. Among the biggest new features that the OxygenOS 2.2.1 update brings is RAW support to the default camera app. RAW images capture the image with minimal processing and thus do not compress the image data like JPEG images do, but they are heavier in size.
OnePlus co-founder recently said that their upcoming flagship will feature a ‘new design’ and will be announced by June this year. Rumours suggest that the OnePlus 3 will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and USB Type-C.
