OnePlus boasts the 'OnePlus 2' will have a fingerprint sensor superior to Apple's 'Touch ID'

Without a doubt, there is high anticipation for OnePlus' follow-up to last year's frugal flagship, the 'One'. The OnePlus 2 will attempt to capitalize on the popularity of last year's device by offering top notch specifications, although pricing is still up in the air. Today, OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will offer a fingerprint sensor on its latest flagship.

While iPhone users have been using fingerprint sensor technology with 'Touch ID' for quite some time, Android users have not had such a smooth experience when it comes to fingerprint sensor tech. OnePlus claims that their new fingerprint sensor is "refined and lightning quick, unlocking your device faster than Touch ID". The sensor will also be able to store five fingerprints in total.

Although we have yet to see the device in any official form, we did happen to come upon some leaked images of the device. The OnePlus 2 is confirmed to arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, USB Type-C port and will feature the aforementioned fingerprint sensor; the OnePlus 2 will be announced on July 27th, 2015.
