Hardened security on the OnePlus 2 will be provided through a fingerprint sensor. This feature has been heavily rumoured for a while and OnePlus has finally confirmed it ahead of the new device’s launch on July 27.

Devices like the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge already boast a fingerprint sensor. The Chinese company, however, boasts that the 2’s fingerprint sensor has “the ability to store up to five finger profiles and can unlock the device twice as fast as any iPhone.” The device will also be compatible with Android Pay.

In addition to this, the brand also claims they’ve solved overheating problems with the Snapdragon 810 processor featured beneath its shell. The processor has previously featured in devices like the Sony Xperia Z3.

thEY said: “Although there have been reports that the 810 runs warmer than its predecessors, we assure you that we have taken all the necessary precautions and beyond to prevent this from occurring in the 2.

“We worked very closely with Qualcomm’s engineers to integrate an improved version of the chipset (v2.1) in the OnePlus 2, and fine-tuned both hardware and software. The 2 will be ‘cooler than ever’.”
