OnePlus 2 will be backed by Snapdragon 810; start at $400


Most news and rumors surrounding OnePlus and their upcoming device, the OnePlus 2, have been rather quiet. What we know now, is that the device will come out in Q3 of this year and have a higher price tag. Today, we know that the device will come with a Snapdragon 810 processor and come with a $400 price tag thanks to CEO Pete Lau and co-founder Carl Pei.

Pete Lau asked via Weibo and Carl Pei asked via Twitter “If the OnePlus 2 comes with the Snapdragon 810 processor, how much should it cost?” Both of them received many replies, but both seemed to narrow on on a single price range. Both stated $400 “sounds reasonable.” It is worth noting that OnePlus is also expected to release a cheaper device alongside the OnePlus 2, but details surrounding it are unknown.

So, with only a few months to go until the OnePlus 2 gets announced and released, we know a good chunk of info. The device will ship with OnePlus’s in-house ROM dubbed ‘OxygenOS’ in place of CyanogenMod. It will also feature an invite system, that is been confirmed. Now, it will most likely sport the Snapdragon 810 processor and come in at around $400 USD.
