OnePlus 2 torn down for repairability test in China


All tech-heads should be used to iFixit’s signature teardown treatment and repairability score. The OnePlus 2 was just announced on Monday and already received it’s first teardown, this time via IT168 out of China. Unfortunately IT168 does not have a repairability score similar to iFixit, but there are numerous pictures detailing the entire process of ripping the OnePlus 2 apart. The teardown process was relatively painless according to the rough translation of the detailed notes.

The OnePlus 2 features a 1080p (1920 x 1080) LTPS display, 3 or 4GB of RAM depending on model, and is run by the sometimes hot (literally not metaphorically) Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core SoC. The 3GB model of the device ships with 16GB of internal storage, while the 4GB variant comes with 64GB of in-built storage. The 13-megapixel OIS camera is available on the back of this handset, along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash, the front camera also features laser autofocus similar to the LG G3 and G4. The phone has a respectable 5 MP camera around front and a 3,300 mAh battery powering the whole thing.

OnePlus announced that the phone will launch August 11 and will only be available via invite for $389 (top-tier model) at launch. Considering you need to share your invite code to keep your spot in line, I’ll probably be waiting awhile unless they give early forum members invites soon. Hopefully we get an iFixit rating in the next week or so. For now, check out the teardown pictures below and let us know if you plan to pick up a OnePlus 2 if/when you get an invite.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
