    The OnePlus 2 is shaping up to be an interesting Android handset; after confirming we’d see a USB-C port, OnePlus now says its second generation smartphone will also have a fingerprint sensor that’s “faster than Touch ID”.

    OnePlus goes on to say the fingerprint sensor on the OnePlus 2 is “done right. It’s refined and lightning quick, unlocking your device faster than TouchID.”

    While OnePlus doesn’t talk specifics of the sensor’s software, the company does hint it will be central to your experience, not like previous handsets which used a sensor as “a selling point, not a useful feature.”

    OnePlus only says its technology is meant for unlocking your phone, and can store up to five fingerprint profiles. The OnePlus Two launches July 27.
