Confirmed: OnePlus 2 will Run Second Gen Snapdragon 810
In a post on OnePlus forums, Pete Lau (CEO, OnePlus) has confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor. OnePlus stresses that key reasons that this particular chipset was selected include the capability of streaming 4K Ultra HD video, impressive image processing and more.
OnePlus also claims that they have taken all the necessary steps to make sure that the chipset, which otherwise is known to heat up considerably, will not mimic this behaviour on the OnePlus 2. They have done this by adding both thermal gel and graphite paste on top of the CPUs as well as in key areas inside the phone to dissipate heat.
According to the Chinese manufacturer, they have optimised OxygenOS to run in sync with the Snapdragon 810 v2.1. The newly designed OS will take advantage of the chipsets advanced architecture using the large cores for performance intensive tasks like gaming, while using the smaller cores for basic usage like texting.
Pete Lau claims in his post that the company has spent a long time in building the handset and is very excited about the OnePlus 2. In India, however, launch details are sketchy at best. With no signs of OnePlus One price drop in India, One can only expect the launch of the OnePlus 2 to be delayed.
