OnePlus 4 coming this summer powered by the Snapdragon 830 chipset?
The recent buzz around the water cooler is that the OnePlus 3T will be replacing the OnePlus 3 model. The OnePlus 3T will reportedly be priced at $80 above the currently available flagship. At that price, there will be a slight bump under the hood to the Snapdragon 821 chipset, and possibly a hike in the front screen's resolution to 1440 x 2560.

Looking farther ahead to next summer, some information about the OnePlus 4 was recently discovered on Weibo. According to the post, this model will be released in June or July of next year. Supposedly powering the handset will be the Snapdragon 830 SoC. The unannounced chipset was originally thought to be produced by Samsung using the 10nm process.

However, Samsung is said to be behind schedule in producing the chip. As a result, there is talk that Qualcomm is turning production of the Snapdragon 830 over to TSMC. The latter has yet to mass produce chips using the 10nm process yet, which means that a TSMC produced Snapdragon 830 chipset might not provide the same power efficiency as Samsung's version would have. So far, this rumor has not been confirmed.

Speculation is calling for the OnePlus 4 to be rockin' a CPU running at a clock speed of 3.0GHz, with an Adreno 620 GPU inside. A 4000mAh battery is said to be in charge of keeping the lights on, and Android 7.0 will be pre-installed.

As good as this sounds, for right now we would take this story with the proverbial grain of salt.

at that summer time there will already be plenty of other phones with even better CPUs than 830 and even more phones featuring 830 already, so the ONE PLUS will be late again (as usually) on the market. Samsung will come with the 4K UHD screen resolution powered by best ever components put into smartphone, and this will happen far before ONE PLUS will touch the waters of the market. But whoever wants to support this company to keep competition, why not?

Come Summer 17' there'll already be 4 new Xperia Flagships, 2 HTCS, 2 Galaxy's, another Xaomoi, and 3 IPhones on the way. It'll have a lot of competition.

With a bigger battery you don't need to charge to 100%. Charging to 60% still is ~3000mah which is what most phones have anyways. Put im fast charge it it shouldn't be a problem.

Make OP4 with (OLED) 1080p 5.5" screen, compact like G3 Or maybe make pixel like OP4 duo. Then I'll think about buying one...until then I am keeping 6SP.

Wish they'd include an active digitizer pen and MicroSD card slot...really liking my OnePlus One, but really want those two and upgraded al-aroundl specs in my next phablet...think I'll have to start looking into custom ROMs for the 64 GB Exynos Note 4.

LOL, and still it will be behind schedule, filled with bugs, little to no support to repair it. Sorry, OnePlus lost me in the late summer of 2014. Still their support forums are filled with horror stories. Kill OnePlus, and let Oppo spend it's times building the Oppo phones instead of the cheap OnePlus phones.

OP3 is definitely not a cheap phone Nor a bad performer , it exceeds my older iP6 in every single aspect even flow of the OS !!
