OnePlus is a company that loves to hype their product. I’m a sneakerhead, so I know all about over-hyped products, but I think OnePlus might even give Nike a run for their money! Last year, OnePlus took every opportunity to tease fans with the specs of their flagship phone, and it seems they are back at it again. In typical OnePlus fashion, CEO Pete Lau took to the 1+1 forums to announce that the OnePlus 2 will feature the Snapdragon 810 processor. Lau made sure to emphasize that their flagship would run v2.1 of the 810, which is supposedly cooler than the version found in the HTC One M9 and LG Gflex 2. There really isn’t significant evidence that the v2.1 chip runs any cooler, especially considering some of the overheating reports we have heard about the Xperia Z4 from Sony.
In addition to promising the cooler version of the 810, Lau mentioned that the new Oxygen OS will be optimized to work with the chip. Apparently OnePlus and Qualcomm worked together to make sure there won’t be any problems, but I think HTC said that, and Sony, and…well you get the idea! I’m pretty sure we’re going to see OnePlus continue teasing out features one by one in the coming weeks. Remember that the OnePlus 2 is scheduled tolaunch in July, and we expect a slightly higher price tag this time around. I was really hoping that OnePlus planned to change some of their shoddy public relations practices on this go around. Unfortunately, today’s hyped announcement regarding a standard processor reveal doesn’t leave me hopeful. Keep it locked to HOA for more OnePlus 2 news.
