OnePlus 2 confirmed to come with graphite-cooled Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
Kicking off their usual viral marketing for the next OnePlus device, the company that made the OnePlus One has confirmed that the OnePlus 2 smartphone will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor. While it may have a bad reputation for overheating, the octa-core processor does offer impressive performance and features such as UHD 4K video streaming. In addition, the OnePlus team have revealed that they may have solved the overheating issue. Rather than concentrate the processor on one spot, the various cores will be spread out over the phone's board and layered with thermal gel and graphite to ensure better heat dissipation even with hours of use. The OnePlus OxygenOS will also be tweaked and optimized to work better with the Snapdragon 810. Still no news on Malaysia release dates or pricing but we expect these details to come soon as the OnePlus 2 is expected to arrive within 2015.
