OnePlus Two to cost more than $322 , Snapdragon 810 on tow

Despite rumors of overheating ,Oneplus is certain that the mark 2 (v2.0) version of the  Snapdragon 810 SOC will run cooler , the company , which is said to use the processor for its upcoming flagship - OnePlus Two , i also said to increase the price of the product from the previous $299 (base price) to a price higher than $322 . The price , which was published by OnePlus stated that

“We’re paying more for the 810 than we ever have for the 801. In fact, the cost is almost 60 percent higher, and we’re not getting any discount. We can tell you now that the price of the 2 will certainly be higher than $322.”

The price of the new phone is quite justifiable as the price of the Snapdragon 810 is a lot higher than its previous 32bit counterparts , the chip in question has so far caused major controversy and loss of sales for some major phone makers and some dumped it alltogether . The first version of the ill fated Snapdragon 810 chips were known to produce high levels of heat ,but this was later addressed in v2.0 which is now clocked to a lower speed -1.8Ghz to keep things cool . Although Oneplus are still keeping rumors about the phone and its launch day secret , new sources speculate that the launch will be in July of this year .
