UPDATE: The OnePlus 2 goes on sale in Malaysia today, exclusively on Maxis.
The OnePlus 2 is officially going on sale in Malaysia next Tuesday, 22nd September. Like the OnePlus One, it is sold exclusively through Maxis and this time it is limited to those who have received a special invite from its website.
The online orders for the OnePlus 2 will be accepted through its Maxis Online Store at 10AM on 22nd September and deliveries will begin a week later on 28th September. Alternatively the device will also be available at Maxis outlets nationwide on the same day.
In terms of price, the OnePlus 2 with 64GB storage and in Sandstone Black will be priced at RM1,687 (RM1,788 inclusive 6% GST) and it will be offered with Maxis’ very own Zerolution program at RM104/month. That’s RM1 more than what we’ve seen earlier on.
For the device itself on Zerolution, it costs RM59/month across 24 months but you do get the option for an early upgrade at an extra RM30/month and added device protection at RM15/month. In order to take this Zerolution offer, youll need to sign up with their MaxisOne Plan that offers unlimited calls and SMS from RM98/month.
To recap, the OnePlus 2 offers a 5.5″ Full HD display and it runs on Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor with 4GB of RAM. For Malaysia, we are getting 64GB of on-board storage which isn’t expandable. While the OnePlus One came with just a single SIM, the new OnePlus 2 is a dual-SIM device with 4G LTE support.
For taking pictures, it gets a better 13MP camera with dual-tone LED flash, Optical Image Stabilisation and Laser AutoFocus. Meanwhile the front gets a 5MP selfie cam and a fingerprint scanner that doubles up as a capacitive home button. The battery of the OnePlus 2 is bigger now at 3,300mAh and it charges up with a new reversible USB Type C.
For those who haven’t requested for an invite, can still do so over at their OnePlus 2 page.
