Today OnePlus announced that they will be using the Snapdragon 810 v2.1 in their upcoming flagship, the OnePlus Two. OnePlus states they were trying out other option for CPUs, but kept going back to the 810. There wasn’t any specification as to which other CPUs were tried out, but I’m sure we can make guesses as to which were used (Exynos, Kirin, other Snapdragon CPUs). Apparently the speed and ability to multitask while maintaining optimal battery performance was the reason why the 810 stayed so close to OnePlus.
The 810 v2.1 provides desktop-grade computing power in your hands with its eight CPU cores and 64-bit computing. 4K video is supported with the 810, so you’ll be viewing clear and crisp pictures and videos, and the Adreno 430 GPU will provide 3D gaming at its best.
OnePlus does go on to say that they know about the Snapdragon 810 getting warm unlike its predecessors, they have taken precautions to make sure it doesn’t overheat in the OnePlus Two. Thermal gel and graphite have been placed in different areas in the phone so it meets “industry standard for phone temperature, even with hours of use”. The graphite is placed in the phone so the heat that is created will dissipate evenly instead of being in one area and creating performance issues.
OxygenOS is set to work very well with the 810 as it will use the eight CPU processors differently. Pretty much like Samsung’s big.Little, one or two larger processors will do all the heavy work such as intense gaming while the smaller processors will handle text messaging or anything that doesn’t use the processors to heavily. The ROM will know which processor to use while a certain task is being done.
