OnePlus just published a very interesting topic on the official forums . Entitled “We are furious” (We are mad), the subject aims to put an end to rumors surrounding the terminal exit, whether on its price, but also on the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
Yesterday we learned that the OnePlus 2 integrate Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. SoC that has particularly bad press in recent months because of performance issues, as we have seen in the LG G Flex 2 and HTC One M9 . The post on the official forum of OnePlus, therefore, aims to reassure and to silence rumors. As stated by OnePlus yesterday, OnePlus 2 will use version 2.1 of the Snapdragon 810. As noted by our colleagues of the site Anandtech , this version is already used in the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro and some sources indicate that Sony is also used in the Xperia Z3 + which also suffers from problems of heating. However, the LG G Flex 2 and HTC One M9 use version 2. Version 1 is, in fact, the prototype – also known engineering sample – with operating frequencies blocked 1 GHz against 1958 and 1.555 GHz Cortex -A57 and A53 on versions 2 and 2.1. But precisely in order to contain the heat generated by the chip, OnePlus decided to limit the frequency of the Cortex-A57 Snapdragon 810 to 1.8 GHz. It will examine in detail the other changes introduced by the Snapdragon OnePlus 810 via the governor of OxygenOS, the software part in CPU load.
In all cases, OnePlus promises well above 801 Snapdragon performance. An assertion that also applies to LG G Flex 2 and HTC One M9 in the benchmarks, but is far more attenuated in some more intensive uses such as of example during a session of play a little greedy. To kill rumors that Qualcomm Snapdragon braderait its 810 OnePlus announcements that this SoC costs them 60% more than they had to pay to join the Snapdragon 801 On the OnePlus e. The manufacturer adds that he receives no reduction on the chip. We then wait to see the magic recipe used by OnePlus for a OnePlus 2 much more efficient than the OnePlus One with a smartphone SoC no manufacturer seems tame. The first answers could come from Mi Note Pro tests with its Snapdragon 810 v2.1.
Finally, the team addressed the issue of the price of OnePlus 2. Many rumors last week announced a sale price of 1,999 yuan or about 322 dollars. According to OnePlus, the two selling price will certainly be higher than $ 322. To recap, the OnePlus One is currently sold $ 249 16GB version and $ 299 64GB version and 299 or 249 euros. We must, therefore, expect a rate of at least 350 dollars/euros.
