By now, most of the specs of the upcoming OnePlus 2 are no secret. It is said to come with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, a USB Type-C port, an eventual metallic body, and there will be models with 4 GB of RAM, as the company itself teased. The display diagonal also revealed itself to be 5.5″ inches, with 1080p screen resolution.
The rest of the sheet includes a 16 MP rear camera, 5 MP selfie snapper, 64 GB of storage, and a 3300 mAh battery. A metal body is all the more likely, looking at the specs, given that the weight of the phone is shown at the hefty 166g mark. The only eyebrow-raiser here is the Snapdragon 810 chipset, and the pesky overheating/throttling issues that might be arriving with it.
This is why the OnePlus team went out of its way to assure us that the Snapdragon 810 beast will be tamed in its newest flagship with several approaches. It will allegedly use the latest, improved version of the chip, v2.1, which will be “fine-tuned both hardware and software”-wise. OnePlus have also allegedly applied a thermal gel coating and graphite inside the phone, gunning for more effective heat dissipation.
