      May be better than OP2. It doesn’t have any fingerprint scanner though.

        last year OPO was with all his downsides a flagship killer. I’m not sure they are going to deliver it with the OP2.
        what do you think about the OP2 so far?

      According to Android Authority, the chip is the revised version, but the only way to find out is after people review it !

      Given that they implemented it in the Nubia Z9 Max (I have one), without heating issues, I think (hope) it should be OK.
