The Oxygen OS of OnePlus 2 will have Android M features on board

23 July, 2015

In a bid to create more hype before the scheduled debut of its second smartphone, OnePlus published a blog post with the title “Ahead of its time: 2016 Flagship Killer.” In it, the ambitious Chinese startup boldly claims that OnePlus 2 “was not created to compete with the flagships from 2015,” but with next year’s top dogs instead.

OnePlus revealed that the custom Oxygen OS of the upcoming “future-proof” flagship smartphone will have Android M features on board. The custom ROM will be based on an Android Lollipop build at launch.

We already got a chance to take a glimpse at the OnePlus 2 during its visit in TENAA earlier this week. The high-end handset is confirmed to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 4GB of RAM, USB Type-C, a fingerprint sensor that is allegedly faster that the one found in Apple’s iPhone, and a sub-$450 price tag.

Overall, the blog post by OnePlus brings nothing but even heftier expectations towards the successor of OnePlus One. OnePlus 2 will debut this coming Monday, on July 27.
