According to the OnePlus CEO, the OnePlus 2 is due to arrive during the third quarter of this year.
Before the official unveiling happens, though, it seems like a prototype of the device got put through the paces of Geekbench today. If this is indeed the OnePlus 2, then it’s the first we’ve seen of it in benchmarks.
Although Geekbench lists its name as OnePlus One, the model number is different. The actual OnePlus One has the model name A0001, while this one is A2001. Furthermore, the MSM8994 board listed corresponds to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset, which has been rumored to be inside the OnePlus 2. The OnePlus One, on the other hand, is powered by the Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974).
The processor inside the Snapdragon 810 definitely goes further than 1.55 GHz, so clearly this benchmark was performed with a cap at that speed. Geekbench correctly lists eight cores for the CPU. The other thing it’s that the OnePlus 2 from this is that it will have 3GB of RAM just like its predecessor.
The OnePlus 2 will be available for about $400.
