OnePlus 2 Teardown Shows That Device Has Been Assembled Very Carefully And With Great Precision

According to IT168, OnePlus 2 is not only a great handset that features impressive hardware specifications, but its assembly might have also cost a great deal for the company. Several smartphone manufacturing companies cut corners by using sticky adhesive to place the components together instead of screws, but OnePlus decided to cater to the consumers rather than its own pocket.

Coming to the camera sensor side of things, surprisingly, the OnePlus 2 teardown reveals that the handset does not feature Sony’s camera sensors but OmniVision ones. The rear side of the smartphone is an OV13860 camera sensor, while the front one is an OV5648 one. Keep in mind that OmniVision is going to be acquired by a Chinese firm, when the deal has been officially confirmed in 2016. In this way, more Chinese smartphone companies will have access to cheaper, yet much better performing camera sensors.
