On Monday, OnePlus 2 was announced giving readers a better mobile option and upgraded specifications following the success of its predecessor OnePlus 2.

The Verge said that the previous release was "a standout" at $3,000 since it was a nice-looking phone with high-end features.

It added that the new device gives users "notable" upgrades from the previous release.

Comparing the specifications of the earlier released device and the newly announced one, Engadget said that OnePlus One debuted at $299 while the OnePlus 2 is pegged a bit higher.

The 64GB version will cost $389 while the 16GB variant will be priced at $329.

"It's interesting to see OnePlus adopting metal in favor of the cheaper plastic for its latest flagship, which explains why this new phone will cost a tad more than when its predecessor launched last year," added the same report.

According to The Verge, the new phone will come packed with better features like a 5.5-inch and 1080p screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor.

For its camera, the device is equipped with a 13-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation while its front-facing camera is 5 megapixels and has a two-tone flash and a laser focusing system.

It was explained in The Verge report that the device is almost similar to the OnePlus One in terms of its size but variations in design are notable.

"The body material is significantly nicer this time - most of the frame is made of aluminum, but the back keeps the textured, grippy material featured on last year's phone," added The Verge.

Engadget also said that another notable addition to the device is an "alert slider" on left spine of the phone.

"Unlike the usual mute switch you would find on an iPhone, this one actually toggles between three different notification profiles: 'None,' which disables all notifications, 'Priority,' which only enables notifications from your priority contacts and 'All,' which, you guessed it, enables all of them," it added.

The back of the device is also reportedly easier to replace with users having the options of a wooden or a kevlar back.

Wired said that the OnePlus Two's battery may last for only a day, shorter than the life of its predecessor's battery.

"It's powered by USB-C, and along with the phone OnePlus will be selling a nifty red charging cable that's reversible on both ends-even in your old-school USB port," added Wired.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei defended the look of the new device saying that it was not "ugly" as people earlier called it.

"It's not ugly, right? It's a more timeless design. This one might not look as pretty the first time, but it really, really grows on you," he added.

Taking into consideration all the features of the device, Wired concluded that the OnePlus Two is a better phone with upgrades "smartly identified and appear to be well-executed," though it said that there was really nothing flashy about the device.

The OnePlus 2, according to Engadget, will be launched on Aug. 11 but only with in an invitation-based system.
