The OnePlus 2 smartphone is expected to be announced sometime later this year. And there has been plenty of talk about the processor and SoC combination that the company is expected to use. And now, OnePlus has finally decided to unravel the secret and mention to the world that the device will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 SoC.
But the company was mindful of the overheating issues seen on the Snapdragon 810 and has mentioned that it’s working on a more reformed version of the chipset with Qualcomm. So it seems like OnePlus has covered all its bases as far as the OnePlus 2 is concerned. Reports have mentioned that the upcoming OnePlus flagship will not break cover until the end of 2015 at least, so we might have some waiting to do.
Here’s what the company had to say on this – “The OnePlus 2 has been a long time in the making. To be quite honest, we’re excited about this one, and we’ll be revealing what’s inside the 2 piece by piece. The 2 packs some outstanding specs that need to be powered by more than just any processor, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. The Snapdragon 810 v2.1 is just the beginning of something beautiful.”
Although the company has hinted that the OnePlus 2 will also be sold on a invite-only basis, which doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. But on the brighter side, the OnePlus One will finally be freely available.
