OnePlus seemingly can't let go of its past marketing ways. Last year the Chinese company introduced its first handset by drip feeding people information about it in a continuous teaser campaign that lasted for weeks, and now it's doing the exact same thing for the OnePlus 2. That said, this time around we acquire one teaser every few days about one specific feature of the upcoming phone.

So we've already found out that it will employ the elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, overheating problems be damned, and that it will be finally made official on July 27 through a VR presentation.

Now it's time to talk about security, it seems. The OnePlus 2 will sport a fingerprint sensor, something that's been featured more and more on high-discontinue Android devices lately. So this isn't a gigantic surprise, but nice to see nevertheless.

OnePlus promises that the part in its next flagship will be "one of the latest and most advanced fingerprint sensors out there". It also claims it will work faster than Apple's Touch ID, which is a brecent statement to make.

The company also explains that last year while designing the One, it chose not to utilize a fingerprint scanner becautilize the technology simply wasn't fine enough at the time. Sensors were inaccurate and using one sometimes took more than simply entering a password.

Now though it's found a refined and "lightning quick" part, and it's going to utilize it in the OnePlus 2. This sensor will let you store up to five fingerprint profiles.

Thanks for the tip, mads!
