OnePlus Two Rumored Benchmark On Geekbench Reveals Octa-core CPU
OnePlus Two, the successor to the infamous ‘Nexus Killer’, OnePlus One is going to raise the bar in terms of both features and hardware specifications while maintaining an outstanding price tag. Earlier, it was reported that OnePlus Two will be carrying an impressive price of 2,499 Yuan (which is translated in to just $402), while featuring a military grade fingerprint sensor that will rival that incorporated in Apple’s current generation iPhone 6 duo. Now, the latest rumor concerning the hardware specifications of the upcoming smartphone have been revealed, courtesy of Geekbench. Let us look at what we can expect from one of the most anticipated Android handsets of 2015.
Geekbench Report Reveals 1.55 GHz Octa-core Processor And 3 GB Of RAM On OnePlus Two
According to the Geekbench report, OnePlus Two is armed with an octa-core processor, with each core running at a clock speed of 1.55 GHz. The model name of the device is OnePlus One A2001, which might sidetrack us in to believing that the device is the original OnePlus One. However, that particular model was assimilated with a Snapdragon 801 running a quad-core processor, not an octa-core one. Additionally, the startup’s CEO Pete Lau had stated earlier this year that there was going to be another device released alongside OnePlus Two and will be catered to a different crowd.
Then again, if the previous statement happens to be true, then why is this particular handset running Qualcomm’s controversial chipset, Snapdragon 810 (denoted by msm8994)? One disappointing aspect of the rumored OnePlus Two from the benchmarking report is that the device is running 3 GB of RAM. OnePlus One was also stacked with 3 GB of RAM, so it is a little disappointing to see that OnePlus has not made any changes in this particular front.
OnePlus Two is yet to be announced by the company, and it is expected that one device from the startup firm is going to be unveiled later this month, with no indication whether or not it’s the flagship cellphone, or any other one. The upcoming weeks might finally provide us with all the information that we crave to know, and most importantly, those details will not leave us bitterly disappointed.
