OnePlus One will have the Snapdragon 801 under the hood after all
OnePlus had given a couple of strong reasons for deciding to put a Snapdragon 800 inside the OnePlus One. Those reasons included a performance vs. cost analysis, and battery life. The bottom line was that going with the Snapdragon 800 would allow the OnePlus One to offer high-end performance at a price under $400, and still get launched next quarter.

But something has changed. On the OnePlus Google+ page, the specs now show a Snapdragon 801 CPU. No one really criticized OnePlus for its earlier decision since the reasons they gave for going with the Snapdragon 800 were all "consumer-friendly." Hopefully the new specs don't indicate a change in pricing or availability. The difference between the two is that the Snapdragon 801 offers higher maximum CPU and GPU clock speed, support for Dual SIM, Dual Standby, and a faster LPDDR3 interface.

The rest of the specs listed on the Google+ page include a 5.5 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, a 13MP camera featuring a Sony Exmor sensor (and an f/2.0 aperture), StyleSwap replaceable back covers, and a 3100mAh battery.

What are u really planning to do with a phone that even snapdragon 801 wont satisfy ur needs?

Buy a phone for long term. Makes sense to wait for a 64 bit processor with at least 5 gigs of ram at this point.

Enough with the vapors and leaks, I want to see if this thing is smoking or smoldering!

Agree. Too much leaks and rumors have made us waste our time.

Good, it made more sense anyways because optimization shouldn't be any different between the two, the 801 can just push a little more.
