According to Geenbench Browser, the phone is priced at about $440, similar to the previous version. The report also suggested that the new version of the phone received a score of 1256 for single-core and 4093 for multi-core.
The device will not go through a complete makeover this time around. Instead, it will be an updated version of the well-received OnePlus One. The phone will flaunt 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution, but the display size has not been confirmed yet.
