OnePlus One specs confirmed; will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB RAM


OnePlus has posted a teaser video as well as revealed the specification details for it’s yet to be launched One smartphone, which will be unveiled globally on April 23. Though the so-called unboxing clip of the phone is simply irrelevant, the company’s CEO Pete Lau has confirmed the phone’s hardware specifications in a post on the company’s forum.

Lau, who had earlier worked with Oppo, has mentioned in his post that the company wants to “take full advantage of the fastest SoC currently on the market” and thus has used a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, instead of the rumored Snapdragon 800 chispet. Lau believes that with a higher clock speed and 3GB of RAM, the phone will be a better performer than others running on the same platform.

Sony’s recently announced Xperia Z2 too runs on the Snapdragon 801 processor, however clocks at a lower speed than this one. Also, HTC too has used the Snapdragon 801 chipset on its One (M8) smartphone, but uses 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB.

Apart from the processor, the phone will flaunt a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 3,100mAh battery and a customized version of CyanogenMod 11.
