OnePlus 2's price will be "higher than $322"


The OnePlus 2 is coming soon - that's already been confirmed by OnePlus, which recently revealed that the handset would be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, while also offering other "impressive specs."

Needles to say, many fear that the Snapdragon 810 will overheat inside the OnePlus 2, since this is already happening with other devices that are powered by the chipset. However, OnePlus said that it knows how to avoid these problems. The company today is reconfirming that the OnePlus 2 features the S810 (clocked at 1.8 GHz "for cooler temperatures"), also mentioning that, since this processor is almost 60% more expensive than the Snapdragon 801 that's found inside the OnePlus One, the new smartphone will not be as cheap as last year's handset. More exactly, the price of the OnePlus 2 will "certainly be higher than $322."

As you may know, the OnePlus One was released for prices starting at $299 (though it can now be bought for as low as $249). And while the OnePlus 2 will be more expensive, it's probably still going to be more affordable than most high-end smartphones out there.

P.S.: Pictured above is the OnePlus team "mad" at all the incorrect rumors regarding the OnePlus 2. And that's a "hidden OnePlus 2" in the center of the image. As you can see, OnePlus is not yet ready to reveal the smartphone's design, though it's probably safe to assume that the device will be pretty large, likely sporting a screen of at least 5.5 inches.

Oh no, Didn't we hear that same thing from another Manufacture? They also said they had tamed that dragon only to find out that they had underestimated the heat of the fire in the dragons belly. Well lets wait and see if indeed they are successful or if the have to under clock the 810 to performance levels of the 801.

I 100% see where you're coming from but keep in mind Oneplus is a small company, they have a lot to lose if this phone does overheat. Check of Oneplus forums before throwing shade. Enough said.

These low pricing doesn't matter until or unless they are able to make this price for most of the major markets. And the service support too. They need to focus on tech support as well rather than just launching smartphones with super attractive prices.

Any Android phone that costs $200+ is a ripoff.

"since this processor is almost 60% more expensive than the Snapdragon 801 that's found inside the OnePlus One" .....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Really Qualcomm? That's just sad, I wouldn't have even bought it. If they messing up my sells, they need to be the one losing money not me.

Qualcomm really messed up BIG time with SD810. SD810 is simply not fit for purpose and should be recalled from all Mobile markets.

OnePlus should really just go with the SD808 or SD615 (for cost) or put in the latest 800 level processor if possible.

So let me get this straight... I'll be paying more money to offset the cost of a flawed processor which will be underclocked from the factory to offer little - no better performance than a lesser processor? Yeah. ok.

Yeah ofc they aren't offering great prices anymore and to make it better they use a downclocked DSD810....

Clocked at 1.8 GHz "for cooler temperatures" At 1 GHz for cooler "operating" temp. or 3 GHz with heat-sink for cooler temp?
