The success of the OnePlus One smartphone has made the company so confident that it is revealing key specifications of the to-be-released OnePlus 2 almost every other day. After confirming the price, the company has now revealed some of the key configurations for the upcoming device.
Earlier rumors and leaks were split between 3GB and 4GB of RAM. But a report published in OnePlus’ official blog says the OnePlus 2 will feature 4GB of RAM. The tech titan is reportedly utilizing the new LPDDR4 technology to offer faster memory performance in the OnePlus 2. The LPDDR4 apparently offers twice the memory bandwidth, even though it consumes the same amount of power as the LPDDR3.
OnePlus blog says, “It [LPDDR4] offers optimal support for power-saving low frequency mode that brings clock speeds down when performing those everyday and necessary tasks.” “LPDDR4 on the OnePlus 2 allows an even better user experience when using features such as slow-motion video, face recognition, and low-latency gaming -- features that typically use a lot of bandwidth and can cause heavy lagging.” In addition to all these positive aspects of OnePlus 2, the blog also says, the battery performance will also benefit from housing the 4 GB RAM unit.
Recently, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that, the upcoming device will cost around $450. This is $150 more than the actual price of the predecessor OnePlus One, $299. The silver lining is that $450 is still less when compared to the flagship devices from other OEMs. The OnePlus 2 release date is reportedly set for July 27.
What do you think of the OnePlus 2? Will you be willing to purchase one because of the RAM configuration, since not many devices come with such a high unit? Feel free to leave a comment.
