OnePlus 2 to ship with improved Snapdragon 810

No one really cared about the former OnePlus device announcement. Though everyone knew OnePlus One was coming no one really expected much because the company was in its infancy and One was its first device. Through the device, OnePlus showed the industry that they were here to stay. Sure, OnePlus One wasn’t the ‘best’ in specifications, design and over the top features but it was best bang for one’s buck, and probably still is. ne of the many handsets we’re expecting to see debut is the follow-up to last year’s OnePlus One, and though the manufacturer has long confirmed that a OnePlus 2 is in the works, so far it hasn’t shared many details about the phone. Today that all starts changing, as the manufacturer shares one of the most important components that will go into making up the OnePlus 2, a Snapdragon 810 SoC.

Do you remember when the OnePlus One was about to be announced? The company is known for really hyping up their products, letting fans only catch bits and pieces of information at a time. Well, the madness has begun, just as speculations and rumors had begun to swirl. The OnePlus 2 will launch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor on board, which also means it will tout a compelling Adreno 430 GPU.


Though Snapdragon 810 has been discredited in the past, for its over heating issues, OnePus has sticked 810 emphasising that they are using 810 v2.1 edition. The OEM claims to have used many chipsets and keep coming back to the Snapdragon 810. The company insists that it put this new 810 chip through rigorous testing before deciding on it, and that even with it present the OnePlus 2 “_meets the industry standard for phone temperature, even with hours of use._” They also stated that _‘the 2 will be “cooler than ever’. _You can head on to the OnePlus Forum to see the release note yourself.

If anyone remembers, OnePlus did the same teasing procedure for its first device, OnePlus One. OnePlus then goes on to mention that they will, in fact, reveal the specs piece by piece. Get ready for a bunch of posts like this one!
