OnePlus is revealing some new features of the OnePlus 2 before its release. The most recent revelation by the Chinese firm is that its next flagship will sport a USB Type-C connectivity port.
According to the official Google+ post from OnePlus, the news about the USB Type-C connectivity feature for OnePlus 2 is the second confirmed feature. It boasts that the OnePlus 2 will be first smartphone to arrive with the new USB port.
NDTV states that the USB Type-C port supports high-speed data transfer speeds of 10 Gbps. Rumors have it that the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will also be featuring the new USB Type-C port.
Last week, OnePlus confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will be featuring the improved version of the Snapdragon 810 chipset. The official forum post claims that the new flagship will come with Snapdragon 810 v2.1 SoC that houses a 64-bit octa-core processor. It claims the new processor will deliver desktop-like performance on the handset.
Snapdragon 810 has been infamous for its thermal overheating problems. However, OnePlus claims that the improved edition of the processor on the OnePlus 2 handset will not have such a problem. Qualcomm has placed thermal gel and graphite on the processors of the chipset that help dissipate heat.
