OnePlus 2 is Here and Available August 11th!

Yesterday the OnePlus 2 was officially announced.  It will be available on August 11th by invite only (similar to the way they released the original OnePlus).  The 64GB version will be available at launch and will be priced at $389USD.  The smaller 16GB model will be available at a later date for $329USD.

OnePlus is marketing the OnePlus 2 as a “Flagship Killer” and it looks like they are lined up to do just that.  The device is fully loaded and comes with some very impressive specs at a very low cost.  If I weren’t currently tied to Sprint I would be jumping on the invite band wagon!
