Chinese startup smartphone manufacturer OnePlus is all set to officially launch the successor to its popular One smartphone OnePlus Two, during the Q2-Q3 2015 time frame.

An important aspect about the OnePlus Two is that the smartphone will be driven by OnePlus' in-house Oxygen OS. This standalone OS platform will most likely be officially released in March.

Now, an image depicting Oxygen OS running on the OnePlus One has surfaced, and it seems that the new OS will offer an interesting user interface (UI).

The latest image leaks are courtesy technology tipster @Lekasfly who took to Twitter to post the purported Oxygen OS image.

Take a look at the image below:

Gauging by the image, it is evident that the Oxygen OS UI integrates elements of Google's Android Lollipop. On the whole, it seems that the UI offered by Oxygen OS (on the OnePlus Two) will focus on being flat and simple.

Even the current weather condition parameters such as the present temperature and forecast are represented conventionally.

Oxygen OS will in all probability come pre-loaded within the newer OnePlus Two handsets, but users of the older OnePlus One will have to get the OS update loaded manually onto their devices as the software will not be available via OTA, states a report published in Android Headlines.

OnePlus Two release: What we know so far

Apart from the Oxygen OS, OnePlus Two is highly expected to feature dual SIM-card support and MicroSD card slot; both of which are absent in the current-gen One smartphone.

OnePlus Two is also rumoured to debut in India before any other country, and later spread to other markets such as the UK and the US.

Expected key technical specifications of OnePlus Two:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor
  • 5.5in display with comparatively better resolution than the current-gen OnePlus One
  • Android 5.0
  • 4GB RAM onboard
  • 3300 mAh battery
