OnePlus 2 Fingerprint sensor becomes official, dubbed to be better than Touch ID

OnePlus 2 will be unveiled on July 27 with one of a kind VR event. The latest device from OnePlus is future proof and to solidify the claim they have announced, that it will come with a fingerprint sensor and the OnePlus 2 Fingerprint sensor will be the most secure and advanced of the lot.


OnePlus 2 had already become one of the future proof smartphones / phablets, when it was declared that it will come with USB Type C connector. It will also be accompanied by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC and run on in-house custom ROM, the OxygenOS. Now, the company has announced that it will come with ‘one of the latest and most advanced fingerprint sensors out there.’

“In the past, fingerprint sensors were great in concept, but the technology was just not quite there yet. They could be inaccurate and often times took longer than it would take to just enter a password manually. In a nutshell, fingerprint scanners were tacked on to a phone just to hop on the “me too” bandwagon. A selling point, not a useful feature. We could’ve done this with the One, but we felt it was better to wait.

With the OnePlus 2, the fingerprint sensor is done right. It’s refined and lightning quick, unlocking your device faster than TouchID. The average person checks their phone over 200 times per day. If you spend just three seconds inputting a PIN number or pattern, that’s over an hour of your time gone each week.

On the OnePlus 2, one quick tap takes you right o the home screen. With the ability to store up to five fingerprint profiles, it’s fast, it’s safe, and it’s secure. Your smartphone is your most personal device and its security should be personal, too.

A flagship phone deserves flagship features, and security shouldn’t have to be traded for convenience. With one of the fastest sensors on the market, you can rest well knowing that all of your information is conveniently secure. It’s just one of the ways we’re making the OnePlus 2 more impressive, thoughtful, and versatile.”

So, the OnePlus 2 Fingerprint Sensor is said to be faster than the gold standard of fingerprint sensors, the TouchID found in Apple’s iPhones. That’s a tall claim by the startup from China and we hope they are able to deliver on their word.
