New rumors point to the OnePlus Two getting quad-HD display and 64-bit Snapdragon 810 CPU

New rumors point to the OnePlus Two getting quad-HD display and 64-bit Snapdragon 810 CPU
While there is no doubt that OnePlus is working on a successor to its cult-like OnePlus One “flagship killer” smartphone, there can be no doubt that near or at the top of everyone’s list of inquiries about the device is how it will be sold.

The OnePlus One was a find smartphone for sure, and for a first effort it scored in the areas it needed to score, except for one key area, the actual ability for people to buy the phone.

While OnePlus’ co-founder says that the second generation flagship killer will “surprise people,” that does not keep the rumor mills from churning out tid-bits of information to take with a pinch of salt. While Carl Pei has said that the display size for the OnePlus Two has been changed several times already, it is possible that we may yet see another 5.5-inch panel with resolution increased to 1440x2560 pixels (if the rumors are to be believed).

On the inside, word had it that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 was to be the CPU of choice for the new device. New rumors are stating that not only with the OnePlus Two have a 64-bit Snapdragon 810, but will also have 4GB of RAM, and a beefy 3,300mAh battery.

Like all rumors, take these with an appropriate amount of cynicism, but if correct, we do not see anything wrong with the spec sheet so far.

Or may be they'll do what xiaomi did...launch two versions? One with S805, 1080p screen and 3gb ram...other more premium version with S810, 1440p screen and 4gb ram. I have first gen 1+1...and decision to buy it was very much influenced due to cyanogenmod...but considering their current/future relationship with cyanogen...I'd be more thoughtful and evaluative next time I think of buying from 1+

It's pretty obvious it's going to get SD 810 and a 2k screen. Tell me something I don't know PA

You want the market to stand still? We need innovations, and they need to be tested out on the bigger mass to know if they are good or bad, and if they should be improved or scraped.

I hope they release the phone with the an SD810, a 1080p screen, the ppi will be 401 or 403 which is still awesome and frankly I think 1440p is overkill, a 3300 mAh battery. The battery life can make or break a phone. Hence, a 1080p screen. No matter how big the battery is or how good the optimisation is in a 1440p screen phone, the results will always, ALWAYS be better with the 1080p version with the same battery and chipset.

1080p is fine too me and Snapdragon 805 or whatever they chose what processor to use. My problem is the battery they could easily fit a 4000 mAh battery in there or at least an 3500 mAh, but hey whatever they pick hopefully is great consumer device.

I'm more interested in the mini device they talked about releasing. 5" or smaller please.

I am also more interested in the smaller device. 2014 was a good year for the phablets, but I hope they pay a little more attention to the smaller phones this year.

I hear you, the Saygus V2 is one to keep in mind!

Price going to jump too? Not implying it is, but I don't doubt it retails higher like another did this year.

OMG, how many do I have to tell people? Snapdragon 810 is most compatible with and works well on Xperia series, because SONY's UI is one of the most optimized, lightweight user interface in the world. So, it sucks when it powers all the other smartphones!

Phone arena community, people who comment, please help me report him as spam so he may be blocked from trolling. He has done worse than people who shouldn't be banned like xperiadroid,wendygarrett. The moderators seems to be ignoring my report against him

Last time they said QHD screens were pointless, and that's why they didn't go with one. I don't believe they will.

Considering the SoC options at the time I agreed with them. The clarity difference isn't colossal enough to sacrifice the performance of the device. The S810 will easily be able to push a 1440p display.

I hope the surprise is that it will have a stunning design

Oooo Snapdragon 810, Haaaa 4GB Ram, Wow Quad Hd Display but all this will end up as typical chinaman marketing. What is the point if specs are so high but you cant buy that phone. I am making a phone with Snapdragon 825, 8GB Ram, 8K UHD but only available thru invites. Anyone want ? Stop this Bullshi*

Let's see. With those specifications One plus will be able to sell the phone for 300? Probably not.
