Breaking: Benchmarks of mystery OnePlus phone list Snapdragon 810 (OnePlus One 2015?)

oneplus 2 concept

It’s been a little over a year since OnePlus showed off their first and only phone, the One. What does this mean? This means that it is time for the new iteration — something we believed (up until now) would be called the OnePlus Two.

What’s in a name, anyway. What matters is what sits inside the phone; and in this case, what we’re seeing might make you happy. Leaked benchmarks of a new OnePlus phone (OnePlus ONE A2001 according to the listing) have appeared. And guess what, if the listing is right, the phone will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor!

The phone will continue to have 3GB of RAM (I believe that is enough for about a year). The listing was recorded in the Geekbench database May 20th, so we’re certain this is fresh news. Unfortunately, nothing apart from the processor (MSM8994) and RAM (3GB) is listed by the leak.

Nothing to worry, however. The One was quite a phone for its time, and we assume so will be the case with the next OnePlus device (whatever it be called; OnePlus One 2015, perhaps?).

We would assume the phone will have something like a 21 mega-pixel Sony camera, a base variant with 32GB storage, maybe even a 2560 x 1440p 2K display. What would you like to/expect to see on OnePlus’ next? Let us know!

    I would rather buy a cheaper 801 OnePlus One.

      Yeah, I agree. Chinese phone manufacturers seem to have a really hard time balancing specs. Why not keep the fantastic 1080P display of the OP1, and instead bump the RAM to 4GB LPDDR4? And, instead of the underclocked SD 810, how about a fully clocked SD 808 (and a lower price)?

      2K screens are marketing gimmick, and a really poor one at that. They slow performance, kill battery, make onscreen elements smaller than they should be, and make a phone more expensive than it needs to be.

      It seems I’ll be sticking with my trusty OP1 until the first quality MTK Helio X20 device (with 1080P display) is released.

    It still has freaking 3Gigs of RAM .. I don’t think 1+1 would do good in near future.. and on another drawback is not having Cynogen OS …

      I’m sure it is just a placeholder. They (and all other stores that have it listed) will update their listings as and when more info comes.

    Interestingly it also shows it’s been under clocked to 1.5GHz, obviously to stop it overheating, but it does limit performance. I would rather the SD808 over the 810 just like LG have done with the G4.

      The SD810 doesn’t actually have an overheating problem. They did have a bunch of pre-release silicon go out to developers as samples that did have a heat problem, but it was only from one foundry and they fixed it before release. The press jumped on the story and snowballed the wrong conclusion.

      The SD808 is significantly less of a processor than the SD810. You shouldn’t want it, and you shouldn’t be thinking that the LG guys used it because of SD810 problems. LG used it because they wanted to increase their margins, since it’s cheaper. They sacrificed longevity for profit, which doubly profits them, since you’ll also buy a new phone sooner.

      What’s more important that all this is what software it’s going to run. Presumably OxygenOS or HydrogenOS, or whatever they’re calling it these days. I already think they’ve failed here, since for all their professed minimalism, they still haven’t been able to get a 5.1 release out. Instead they’re marching down the periodic table and making extra variants. This is one area where OnePlus can learn from Apple. Every phone runs the SAME OS, there’s only one version, and releases covers all hardware.

      Until OnePlus can put out Nexus like updates for their software, they’ve become a non-starter. They want to have the same level of minimal customer service that Google has, but to do that they need to deliver the goods. They’ve been failing on their time tables since day one.
