Many hopeful OnePlus One owners expressed a hint of dissatisfaction with the fact that the device would come with a Snapdragon 800 processor. While that chipset is no weakling in today’s society, it wouldn’t have been the latest and greatest available. That title goes to the Snapdragon 801, which is inside the Samsung Galaxy S5 and expected to be inside the all new HTC One.
Thankfully, OnePlus listened to cries to make the phone more “current,” and have sneakily updated their specs sheet to show that they have, in fact, decided to go with the Snapdragon 801 for their first smartphone. They did so with a quick update to their Google+ cover photo.
Snapdragon 801 is a quad-core 2.5GHz SoC that boasts a 28nm process, Adreno 330 GPU, QuickCharge for 75% faster battery charging, integrated LTE, support for Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi ac, 4K video recording and more.
It’s satisfying to see a company willing to be so open about their phone while it’s still in the making. What we didn’t expect was for them to be receptive to user suggestions and complaints and actually act on them. It goes back to their commitment of wanting to deliver the best specs at the best price, and we’re glad to see them staying true to that promise in any way they can.
We still don’t have the full suite of details about this phone, but OnePlus will undoubtedly reveal everything we need to know in the weeks and months to come (especially considering we’re getting quite close to the Q2 2014 release window set forth by the company).
