If you remember following OnePlus One proceedings last year, you will know how OnePlus go about announcing the specifications of their device — bit by bit. Not only does this manage to keep a high level of interest, it also gives the product a lot more footage as compared to announcing all specs at once.
OnePlus CEO and founder Pete Lau posted on the OnePlus forums today that the upcoming OnePlus 2 will have the Snapdragon 810 CPU. Like me, you’ll have wondered why the choice given the nasty overheating issues that the Snapdragon 810 reports… the answer to that, according to OnePlus, is revision 2.1 of the chipset.
According to Lau, OnePlus “worked very closely with Qualcomm’s engineers to integrate an improved version of the chipset (v2.1) in the OnePlus 2, and fine-tuned both hardware and software. The 2 will be cooler than ever“.
The Snapdragon 810 has an octa-core CPU with 64-bit cores, along with the Adreno 430 GPU. The OnePlus One is perhaps the best battery phone of 2014, and OnePlus plan to continue the trend with the OnePlus 2.
