OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone manufacturing company, may be a relatively new entry in the field of established players in a field chock-full of competition. But the company’s strength lies in their constant endeavour to improve upon their devices and most importantly, paying heed to valuable customer feedback. This is significant in the context of what OnePlus is planning to roll out next for their faithful users.
No, it is not an upcoming smartphone that we are talking about here. Nevertheless, the new announcement from OnePlus is an exciting one, especially for users of the company’s previous year’s release, the OnePlus 2. According to the announcement, the OnePlus 2 will be getting a new update soon that will enable the smartphone to be VoLTE (Voice over LTE) compatible. The announcement follows after users of the OnePlus 2 smartphone have flooded the company’s forums asking for the feature to be included in the device after the launch of the Reliance Jio network in India. The Jio network operates exclusively on LTE network with full VoLTE support.
OnePlus will soon enable VoLTE support for the OnePlus 2 smartphone through an over-the-air (OTA) update. However, customers who have opted for the company’s OnePlus X and the OnePlus One handsets will not be getting the update. The company has instead urged the users of the OnePlus X and the OnePlus One to use Jio4G Voice application to make calls on the Jio network.
To take a quick look at the key specifications and features of the OnePlus 2, the smartphone features a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with a pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920. The front panel of the phone houses a fingerprint scanner, though feedback on its performance has been poor. The phone runs OnePlus’ own version of an operating system, called the OxygenOS. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. As for the camera, the phone comes with a 13 MP primary camera with dual-LED flash, along with a 5 MP front camera.
