It has made a huge announcement that its new and upcoming release OnePlus 2 will be packed with a 4 GB RAM.

The smartphone, which is slated to hit the Indian market later this month, will feature next-generation, a most advanced LPDDR4 memory chip, which is at present used only by high-end smartphones like Samsung S6 and Samsung S6 edge. While the Samsung models costs a bomb, the OnePlus 2 will be available at a fraction of a price. The use of superior RAM implies that the phone will have the capacity to run next generation apps with utmost ease and give the users an incredible user-experience.
The initial testing reports of the phone suggest that with LPDDR4 RAM it significantly reduces the battery efficiency. This is a great boon for the modern day users, who are literally glued to their phone all day, either working or browsing social media platform or gaming. Apart from long-lasting battery and powerful RAM, here are a few notable features that rumors suggest can be expected from OnePlus 2
Metal has become the order of the day. Almost all the leading brands including Samsung and HTC are ditching their plastic body and turning to metal. Rumors have it that OnePlus will follow pursuit and use a metallic body for the OnePlus 2 to give it a classic and premium look and feel. A news leak from the Chinese social network suggested that OnePlus will be going in for a premium metal and that the final product would like pretty similar to HTC One M9 with glimpses of iPhone 6.

Nothing has been heard about the screen of OnePlus 2. The OnePlus One model sported a 5.5 inches LCD screen, which was pretty decent. But, today, with the modern day smartphones taking the screen resolution a notch higher, OnePlus 2 might have the same screen size or a slightly bigger screen but with a better display resolution; rumors indicate that it might come with a QHD standard screen.
