Latest rumor calls for the Snapdragon 801 SoC to power the OnePlus X

The latest rumored specs call for a 5-inch display, and a Snapdragon 801 chipset under the hood. Yes, we said Snapdragon 801, not 810. This SoC features a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU. To put this chip in the proper historical significance, it powers the HTC One (M8), the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the BlackBerry Passport. Earlier rumors had a more powerful morsel, like the MediaTek MT-6795T, inside. That well-endowed prototype allegedly scored 54,311 on AnTuTu. That doesn't exactly sound like a fashion-first phone to us.
According to today's report, the OnePlus X could be unveiled as soon as this month. Offering a OnePlus handset for those who don't care about specs gives the company something to sell this holiday season to both the phone geek (OnePlus 2) and the guy or gal who considers a smartphone to be a fashion accessory. Will invites still be required? Stay tuned.
Thanks for the tip!

I'm on a note 3 on Verizon right now, honestly I can't tell too much of a difference between the note 3 in the note four I have on tmobile. An 801 is more than enough

They're both good the 615 scores much lower benchmarks but that doesn't mean a dam thing. (43,000ish vs 32,000ish) they both get the job done. The only debate about the 801 vs the 615 is which one is newer of the two plus its octa core and 64 bit vs an older quad core 32 bit. Last years flagships are now consider very powerful "mid-rangers" but I would give the edge to the 615

I've got a snapdraon 400 on a 6.1" screen for over 12 months, NOT ONE PROBLEM! Sips battery, fast, snappy with no lag. Unless you run huge games, you'd never know it. People are being hoodwinked by the "flagship" crap.

I'll give you the answer you want. The 615 is probably better. Now here's the answer you need, don't worry about the numbers on paper so much. People throw around 64bit and 32bit like its what makes a chip better because obviously double the amount of 32 is 64 right? As a guy who works at T-Mobile store and interacts with the phones on display; N6, Note 4, Z3, M8, G3, etc (32 bit phones, all carry 801/805) daily for almost a year now I can tell that in real world use, you literally cannot tell the difference between them performance wise. If you think you can then you've already started seeing with your subconsciousness, not your actual eyes. If you don't know what that means, I can explain it to you a bit more.

I miss the 4 core chips. Real life performance, 8 core ones don't seem as powerful, and I've yet to see any true improvement in battery life...

I don't see the point, why not SD805? or SN808? Lets not pretend SN808 is high end, it's not.

Put the 801 in a 4.7 inch 1080p device.

720p would be fine for a 4.7" display.
