OnePlus 2 scores 63,700 on AnTuTu, reducing fears of throttling
When the A2001 model of the OnePlus 2 scored 51,460 on the AnTuTu benchmark test, it was a cause of concern for those already mentally committed to buying the new phone. The score barely topped the 51,011 scored by the OnePlus One. This led many to worry that OnePlus was throttling the clock speed of the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset on the sequel, in order to prevent it from overheating. The OnePlus One is powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC.

But a new AnTuTu test might help wash away the fears of potential OnePlus 2 buyers. The same A2001 model scored 63,719 on this second test, topping the scores produced by other Snapdragon 810 powered handsets like the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro (63,424), HTC One M9 (57,648) and the LG G Flex 2 (56,266).

The OnePlus 2 will be unveiled on July 27th with a special VR event that will start at 10pm EDT. Hopefully, you already have your Google Cardboard headset at the ready.
