OnePlus relies on word of mouth to get its products in the spotlights, so the company has been forthcoming about the fact it will launch its new OnePlus 2 smartphone July 27th. There has been no secrecy on that front, but the Chinese startup has been keeping quiet regarding the exact details of the new "Flagship Killer". However, a retail company in China may have spilled the spec information with a new listing for the OnePlus 2.Oppomart, one of China's biggest online retailers has added a listing for the upcoming smartphone and many of the high end specs seem to tally with previous reports and even what OnePlus has been drip feeding us. The OnePlus 2 will come with a 5.7-inch screen that boasts Quad HD resolution (1440 x 2560) and 565ppi, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, which is hopefully the revised chipset that deals with overheating problems. Other specs include 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, although OnePlus has already confirmed the OnePlus 2 will have more RAM than the OnePlus One, which would actually mean 4GB of memory for the new handset. Rounding out the specs list are a Sony supplied 16 megapixel Exmor IMX 234 camera lens on the rear, a 5 megapixel front facing shooter, a 3300 mAh juicer, and OnePlus' own OxygenOS baked over Android 5.0 Lollipop. While we have no doubt these specs may be a bit off and Oppomart is just listing what it expect the device to carry, it is probable that many of them do add up. However, we will be paying close attention to RAM and the cameras when the OnePlus 2 launches as we think they will be spec'd higher.
