OnePlus 2 gets a new feature missing from the OnePlus One

The OnePlus 2 is already set to pack plenty of advantages over the OnePlus One, including a fingerprint reader and USB-C. Now there’s one more way the new phone will surpass its predecessor.

Company CEO Liu Zuohu (Pete Lau) took to Weibo on Thursday to reveal another key OnePlus 2 feature. It turns out the new phone will offer dual SIM support, which is a pretty popular feature in some countries. More interesting is the possibility that one of those SIM card slots could double as a microSD holster, something we’ve seen recently in a few other phones. That would give the OnePlus 2 expandable storage, a feature sorely missing from the OnePlus One.

The OnePlus 2 is set to cost under $450 and pack a Snapdragon 810 processor, a 3300mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera. We’re also expecting it to feature an upgraded metal design that’s at least a little slimmer than its predecessor.

Based on everything we’ve heard so far, the OnePlus 2 sounds like an awesome device and a worthy follow-up to the original One. We’re just over a week away from the new phone’s official unveiling on July 27, though you’ll want to check back before then for the latest news and rumors.
