+OnePlus 2 passes through China's TENAA certification program
Yes, Android fans, that's a home button. A physical home button that resembles what you'd find on a Samsung phone. DEEP. SIGH.
Last year, OnePlus, thanks to CyanogenMod, allowed you to disable the physical buttons, opting for the use of software keys. This was a decent, but failed worked around as the physical keys could still be seen and took up a large portion of the bottom of the phone.
During the OnePlus AMA on reddit, it was revealed that the 2 would have something to appease users that prefer physical navigation buttons and users that prefer software navigation buttons. I would guess that the same method as last year is that solution after seeing the image with this article.
Physical keys were deprecated back in 2011 with the release of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. LG got the memo. HTC got the memo. Motorola got the memo. Samsung has yet to receive the memo and is currently wadding through TouchWiz bloat in hopes to find it some day in the distant future.
I was excited for this phone, but after seeing this, that excitement has dwindled. Hopefully OnePlus has something up their sleeve to bring back that excitement.
