OnePlus Two to be More Expensive, More Powerful than OnePlus One!
The OnePlus Two is the successor to the OnePlus One. Few details have been revealed about the phone officially other than its name. Most specs assume that the device will have around a 5.5-inch, 1440p screen, and will have 3-4 GB of RAM. The SoC (system on a chip), is rumored to be using the Snapdragon 810 processor. The processor was going to be used in many of the flagship smartphones that were released this year.
The Snapdragon 801 processor, was the previous processor to the 810, and was used in the OnePlus One. However, Qualcomm, the maker of the processor, had issues getting the chip to cool properly. This leads many smartphone makers to choose a different processor for their flagship smartphones this year. But, because the OnePlus Two will not launch until at least Q3 of this year, it may still use the Snapdragon 810 processor.
Qualcomm has been working to get the heating issues under control, and it looks like they have been somewhat successful in doing so. OnePlus’ marketing director, David Sanmar, recently held an AMA on Reddit, a social media website. Users of the website asked him many questions about the upcoming phone. He confirmed that the OnePlus Two would continue to use the invite system of the OnePlus One, at least initially.
The system helps the smaller company control the supply for their smartphones, ensuring that they have enough for everyone who wants to order one. Sanmar also confirmed that the price of the OnePlus Two will increase to around $400 to accommodate for the more powerful hardware in the next edition of the smartphone.
For users in China, OnePlus is also debuting another Android ROM similar to OxygenOS. This one is called HydrogenOS, and it is based off of Android 5.0 Lollipop like OxygenOS. The main difference between the two Android ROMs is that that HydrogenOS is tailored for users in China, while OxygenOS is for users outside of China. Both Android ROMs will come with the OnePlus Two, depending on where you buy the phone from. For users in India, OnePlus has also launched a 10,000 mAh power bank for around Rs 13,000. The power bank is being sold exclusively through Amazon India, which is the retailer OnePlus uses for products in that region.
