OnePlus CEO all but confirms Snapdragon 810 and pricing for the OnePlus Two
posted by Paul K. / May 07, 2015, 3:24 AM
Namely, the CEO seems to suggest, or at least – doesn't deny – that the OnePlus Two will be loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. This may stir some stinging comments, as the SoC has been quite controversial as of late, following allegations that it tends to overheat and throttle a bit too much, and the fact that the OnePlus Two is not coming for a few more months, which means that it could easily wait out Qualcomm's next offering. However, the company will be looking for an easy way to build an affordable, bang-for-the-buck handset and placing a still potent, yet not cutting-edge SoC in the Two will allow it to cut some corners in the budget.
Now, on the topic of pricing, Pete Lau said that, assuming the phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 810, a price of ¥2499 (~$403) sounds "reasonable". Now, as far as availability goes, we'll have to fall back on previous rumors, which claim that the company's second flagship will be launched in Q3 2015, sporting a fingerprint scanner among other surprises.

well they could always use the new 810 v2.1 which seems to be a lot better than the original 810 .

Or just use it at slower speed... ex. 1.8 GHz instead of 2.0GHz

I'm just saying that perhaps the v2.1 is the slower version of the original 810. or if the 2.1 is not coming on time, they will use the slower 810. slower 810 still better than 808... bigger number always better.

there is no sd810 v2.1 xaiomi never got to use it either they just succeeded in taking away the heat from soc using graphite fins and dissipate it as mi note has 5.7" screen so larger body for heat dissipation and lesser rise in temp

Actually, Lau's posts talk about a Hydrogen OS "This is the hydrogen OS advocated "art of living home" concept, with an optimistic, positive attitude to see the world" (translated with Google Translate)

I have been told Oxygen OS is worse than CM, much less customization etc. Is it true?

Well One Plus should hurry because Chinese brands and Asus are becoming aggressive with their distribution of Zenfone 2. Asus may get the title of the flagship killer that killed the flagship killer.

Well it wouldn't be with the zenfone 2 as its not powerful enough to kill any flagship.

"and the fact that the OnePlus Two is not coming for a few more months, which means that it could easily wait out Qualcomm's next offering." Umm nope not necessarily... ergo the inherent risk of single sourced SoC dependence. And even then it's still out there if there's really proof that qcom has finally got its Kryo game face on past the last Krait's "legacy" they'd want to leave behind. Bigger brands than 1+ can't even retool for newer SoCs half the time let alone them.

The successor to the OnePlus One has been officially confirmed to be called the OnePlus 2. They did this when they announced that the OnePlus One would no longer haveto be purchased using the invite system.

I'm not too keen on the pricing. Considering I spent the extra and got the 64GB 1+1, I can't imagine they're talking about the most expensive model when they say "around $400". The way I saw it was if I spent $300, which was only $100 ($150 after I decided on 64GB) more than any equivalent device on contract, I could just own the device outright and it was worth it, but to pay double the premium starts to make it not worth it for me. I guess when you compare it to the ridiculous prices they're charging for 32+GB on contract, I should just accept this pricing like a good boy and be glad I don't have to have to seek a "doctor" and a tub full of ice.....yet.
