UPDATE: DirectD is also offering the OnePlus 2 with limited stock available at RM1,899.
Itching for the OnePlus 2? For those who can’t wait for its official release locally, SatuGadgetDotCom is now selling the 2016 Flagship Killer in Malaysia. They are offering the 64GB version at RM1,899 and it comes with 2 years of its own in-house warranty.
Officially, the OnePlus 2 is priced at US$329 (about RM1,306) for 16GB and US$389 (about RM1,545) for the 64GB version. So essentially you are paying RM354 extra to be among the first in Malaysia and it is still cheaper than most flagships in the market today.
To recap on the specs, the OnePlus 2 gets a 5.5″ Full HD screen using an improved IPS display and it runs on Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor mated to 4GB of LD-DDR4 RAM. Like the previous One, it lacks a microSD expansion slot but this time it has dual-SIMs that support 4G LTE.
As for the camera, you will get a 13 megapixel f/2.0 rear snapper with laser focus and Optical Image Stabilisation as well as a 5 megapixel selfie cam up front. Also new is an Alert Slider which lets you prioritise your notification alerts or to turn it off completely. Last but not least, the device will have a 3,300mAh battery keeping everything juiced by way of a reversible USB Type C port.
Maxis which has been the exclusive channel for the OnePlus One in Malaysia has teased that the OnePlus 2 is coming soon but without indicating any specific dates. During its global announcement, the OnePlus 2 is scheduled for release at selected markets starting today, 11th August with the rest of South East Asia to get it sometime in Q4 2015.
Since it is going on sale starting today, this is likely to be a pre-order and SatuGadgetDotCom hasn’t indicated when their stocks are expected to arrive.
