The internet is abuzz with a spate of OnePlus 2 rumours, with the flagship smartphone's official launch just a few weeks away, while a freshly leaked render reveals an all-metal design for the device's chassis.

The rumours suggest that the next-gen OnePlus smartphone will feature a fingerprint scanner, a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor and a USB Type-C port.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently teased on the Weibo account that the upcoming OnePlus 2 smartphone could indeed come with a full-metal construction, reports GizmoChina.

A freshly leaked render (see above) of the smartphone via Weibo adds further credence to the claim that the OnePlus 2 will launch with an all-metal body and chassis.

It is not yet clear if the leaked image is a fan- made concept render or the actual teaser of the upcoming flagship smartphone from OnePlus.

Nevertheless, it is ascertained that the OnePlus 2 is actually sleeker than its predecessor, which measured just 8.9mm in thickness. Furthermore, the design elements of the OnePlus 2 depicted in the leaked render closely resemble the HTC One M8 and One M9.

The report adds that the highly-anticipated fingerprint sensor is likely to be integrated into the home button, as there is no trace of it anywhere at the back of the handset.

Unlike past rumours which hinted at a dual-camera setup on the rear, the freshly leaked render shows a single-sensor camera with a dual-LED flash.

One can also notice a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top and the volume rocker button at the top-right side of the smartphone in the leaked render.

With the official virtual reality launch of OnePlus 2 proposed for 27 July, we might soon hear about the actual pricing and availability details of the smartphone across the globe from the smartphone maker.
