In case you haven’t been keeping up with the developments over at OnePlus, they’ve recently acknowledged their upcoming OnePlus 2 and are occasionally giving away pieces of information about it.  We’ve heard that the successor will have a Snapdragon 810 SoC, and with that, OnePlus straight up went to defending against the chip’s overheating reputation, stating that their 2.1 version of the chipset won’t have the problem.

Still, there appears to be clamoring over the decision, as OnePlus went on the defense again, displaying a humorous picture of an angry team.


They go on to justify why the top-end 810 is right for the OnePlus 2, strangely discussing the higher cost of the chipset versus the 801 in the argument, which attributes to that the “price of the 2 will certainly be higher than $322.”

[blockquote author=”Cat H at the OnePlus forums”]Before jumping to conclusions about the quality of the 2, we ask all of our fans and critics to just wait and see. We’re confident in our products, and we were careful to only choose components that are fit for the successor of the Flagship Killer.[/blockquote]

Do you have bother over the 2 using the Snapdragon 810, or do you think everyone just needs to chill and trust OnePlus?

  1. “flagship killer” lol I ly thing one plus killed was customers expectations. They won’t be Killing anything if they release this garbage with a “wait in line and hopefully you get an invite” sales approach. I would have bought one but refuse to be pushed into stupid sales tactics. Especially when the I ly reason is to create artificial demand for a product which in turn gets people talking about it. F u one plus

    • I agree that it wasn’t the best tactic, but to give them the benefit of the doubt, they were a brand new, unproven, unknown company that were pricing their device super aggressively. It was a HUGE risk and the invite system was a result of that. While it sucked, they did say it helped guard them against losing money (they didn’t know how many devices they would actually sell). With flagships so cheap, there wasn’t much room for error.

      Startups ain’t easy, and things are gonna be rough in the beginning. With that said, they delivered a solid device considering.
