    Specs-wise, we have a pretty good understanding of what the OnePlus will have under the hood - it was already confirmed that OnePlus's second try to woo the world will sport a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 chipset, 4GB of LPDDR4, as well as a fingerprint scanner. Camera
    13MP @ f/2.0 with Laser AF, no OIS. Additionally, first camera samples from the OnePlus 2 also surfaced just recently, showing what its shooter will be capable of.

    Recently in an accidental leak by one of OP staffer via a twitter image, the dual sim functionality of OP2 was revealed. For those unaware of the development, the following image is self explanatory.

    Today is a new day, and we have now confirmed that this feature will indeed grace the OnePlus 2's insides. OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu unveiled on Weibo (China's popular micro-blogging website) that the OnePlus 2 will trump its predecessor in yet another aspect.

    What nobody seems to notice is the possibility of a dual functionality feature for the tray that allows the second tray to use a SIM card or double up as a microSD expansion slot, if the user needs additional storage. A number of existing dual-SIM handsets including Meizu M2 Note and Umi Zero have already implemented technology and its possible that OnePlus may make use of this technology to offer two new features in one stroke. A function which would be more than welcome by any user rooting for dual sim too. This would also end the long pending complaint of many OPO users concerning limited storage availability

    Here's to hoping that this will be the case indeed.

    We will find more about the OnePlus 2 on July 27, or earlier, if any of the OnePlus bigwigs spills the beans beforehand.

    The recent camera review by MKBHD is here


    PS: @Carl @Pete - Hopefully you are listening to this...

    Plz do vote on whats your take on it

    To someone who doesn't know how the tray would work, check out this pic

    Just to clear the doubts of this possibility in anybody's mind thinking that this is not the kind of tray
    @FAQBytes posted this to make things clearer
    The UMI Zero had the same capability and the Sim trays look almost identical.
    Thanks bro.

    How come there was dual sim slots and sd card on the OnePlus One making video on YouTube? Screenshot_2015-07-16-05-29-46.png I guess it didn't make it into final phone?
    I hope oneplus 2 has dual sim and sd or dual sim and you can either choose 2 Sims or 1 sim and sd card slot

    The tray would have to be different to allow for that.
