So far, OnePlus has done a fairly good job of keeping its next smartphone under wraps ahead of the July 27th launch. However, as spotted by our sister site Engadget China, a clear shot of the OnePlus 2 has been revealed by one of the biggest 'leakers' out there -- Chinese wireless regulator Tenaa. We already knew that the 2 would have a fingerprint reader, and that's visible in the (badly lit) image. Its camera setup looks an awful lot like the LG G4's, meaning it may have laser focusing and not dual cameras, as had been rumored. Unusually, the camera is mounted very low on the back.

OnePlus has already let most of the rest of the specs out of the bag, including the Snapdragon 810 CPU, 4GB RAM, a 3,300mAh battery, 13-megapixel back camera and dual SIMs. It's clearly clad in the OnePlus One's "multi-material" back and is expected to have a metal frame. All of that sounds swell, but at what price? The original model sold like (invitation-only) hotcakes thanks to its $300 sticker, but the 2 is expected to cost a bit more -- luckily, we'll find out in less than a week.
