Leading up to the July 27 announcement date of the OnePlus 2, the company behind the upcoming flagship device has taken to its forums to announce individual features of the handset. That includes the fact the device will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor under its hood and as well as a USB Type-C port. Now OnePlus has once again taken to the forums and announced another new feature.
The OnePlus 2 will rock 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, which the company says is the “latest and greatest” on the market. OnePlus says that the inclusion of LPDDR4 means that apps will load even faster and offer both never-before-seen energy savings and smoother gameplay.
There are other reasons why OnePlus went with this decision. As the company points out, LPDDR4 is twice as fast as its predecessor at speeds of 32GB/s. On top of that, this newest iteration of RAM offers the same power consumption levels as its predecessor, despite offering twice the bandwidth performance. OnePlus says users will also see improvements to slow-motion video capture, low-latency gaming and other improvements as well.
Recently, the OnePlus CEO confirmed that the OnePlus 2 will come in at under $450. With specifications like these, the OnePlus 2 is stacking up to be one of the most noteworthy flagships of the year, with a price tag that might make it hard to ignore.
