OnePlus 2 will have 1GB of RAM more than its predecessor, but that's not all
The OnePlus 2 is about to get launched in a few weeks' time, on July 27, in what is touted as the world's first virtual-reality product announcement, and the maker behind the second generation "flagship killer" is giving us nonchalant sneak peeks at the phone's hardware internals.

After it became clear that the OnePlus 2 will come with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, a USB Type-C port, and will cost less than $450, it now becomes clear that the OnePlus 2 will be a champ in the RAM department as well.

It was formally announced that the handset will feature 1GB of RAM more than its predecessor - 4GB of RAM will be a prominent part of the OnePlus 2's specs sheet. This will put it on par with a handful of other heavy-weight RAM champions.

What's more, the RAM will be of the LPDDR4 type, which bears a lot of pretty nice improvements over the LPDDR3 of memory that is still domineering the handset market.

Check out our rumor round-up forr the OnePlus 2 (which is quickly becoming a preliminary announcement post) and make sure to tell us what you think about the OnePlus 2. We suspect that it will be overwhelmingly positive

The question is how hard again for people to acquire this.... Asus had stepped up pretty aggressively, the rest of china phones as well.

There's gonna be some tough competition for other OEM's ...

Not with SD810 on board...

despite the abysmal heat properties of the SD810, the $450 price and other specs still make this a very compelling phone. At $450, it's legitimately flirting with midrange prices. When compared to other midrange offerings, this is a huge value (even with the SD810 problems).

Nope, we already have lots of cheap Chinese phones with decent specs, this doesn't bring anything new.

The main ace they have that most chinese manufactuers do not have is software update. One can be guaranteed software updates even if they do not come very fast.

The software isn't even that good, even Samsung delivered lollipop before they officially did officially. They would be better off with stock android.

OnePlus cant tame the beast...

I had a OnePlus One, it was good but there were issues, touchscreen, vibration, creaky build quality, back of case was a dirt magnet and the surface degraded quickly, the camera wasn't that good, buggy video recording, ota updates never worked. OnePlus can get lost,

I'm so excited but I'm still nervous bc of that sd810 processor. I'll save my judgement until i see the phone but it's looking pretty sweet so far!

It's underclocked to avoid overheating.

It's not underclocked, they're using a revised version

It will be running at 1.8 ghz. so yes it is under clocked. Also it's the same version as on Z3+/Z4.

29. Shocky unregistered

Yeah, the prototype was clocked at 1.5GHz. LOL

49. Shocky unregistered

They're underclocking it because it's overheating. :p

Stop with this garbage nonsense, Just because Some oems doesnt know how to properly implement a SOC. Take a look at Nubia z9, LeTv One pro. Runs well. Scores high in benchmarks. Only gets warm just like every other smartphone. NO OVERHEATING. Even the Xiaomi Note pro never had any overheating, except that one case which they replaced.! The SD810 can run fast and well without any overheating if implemented correctly.! PS - Not saying Onplus 2 will implement correctly or not. Will wait for some reviews. But considering they are specially talking about overheating and about fixing it, i will definately keep a close eyes on this one.

Denial is strong with this one.

So every OEM knew how to implement correctly until the SD810 came along?

Sony can't just look at all the Z series z2/3/3+ they all overheat. HTC gets warm but doesn't overheat. And one plus send a group to make sure that SD 810 works well so it seems that oneplus one could be an exception.

I can add up the M9 to the list of phones, after the android 5.1 update that has been made to the dev edition, the phone can score as high as 65k on AnTuTu (that is for the AnTuTu fanatics) and the thermals have massively improved! There has been some changes, including a generally higher usage of the A57 cluster, and the minimum frequency of the A57 cores has been lowered from the pathetic 633 MHz to 384 MHz And their has been a bump in the GPU max frequency from 600 MHz to 630 MHz, and some memory performance enhancements also have been included And of course some other under-the-hood changes too

This one is hopefully gonna be fine, I'd give it 3 months before attempting to acquire it. See if it overheats or any problems it's bound to gave will iron out.

Is the 810 really as bad as everybody says? Plus, they're using a revised version of it

16. flasc17

The same revised version that Sony's Z3+ is using that is still overheating?

18. Ruturaj

Posts: 1484; Member since: Oct 16, 2014

Yes it's that bad.

Nope 810 brings no new things overall Sony always got overheating issues other than that no overheating.
