OnePlus 2 Stuns Everyone with its Big Score in New AnTuTu Benchmarks
Earlier today, OnePlus 2 was spotted in a leaked AnTuTu benchmark that allegedly showed the device to have secured some powerful points.
According to a Chinese tech blog GizmoChina, the OnePlus 2 model number A2001 has managed to score a whopping 63,719 points in a new AnTuTu test – which is the best among the scores produced by other Snapdragon 810 powered handsets including the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro (63,424), HTC One M9 (57,648) and the LG G Flex 2 (56,266).
The OnePlus team has been teasing the fans of their upcoming smartphone for the last few months. While most of the specs that surfaced online do sound quite interesting, the potential OnePlus 2 buyers are a bit worried about the fact that the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 810 SoC.
The said chipset is reported to be suffering from severe overheating and throttling issues.
Adding to the concern, the earlier AnTuTu benchmark score of the OnePlus 2 with the same model number was 51,460, which barely topped the 51,011 points scored by the OnePlus One (which is driven by the Snapdragon 801).
This made the OnePlus fans to believe that the phone maker may be throttling the clock speed of the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset inside the new flagship, in order to prevent it from overheating.
However, OnePlus has officially promised to address these issues, which are inherent within the Snapdragon 810 SoC. The Chinese phone maker has decided to incorporate a new version 2.1 of the SoC in its next-gen smartphone, which it claims no longer suffers from the issues.
The recent AnTuTu benchmark results back its claim to some extent, thus mitigating the fears of potential OnePlus 2 buyers.
We really hope that the chip inside the OnePlus One sequel is free of nasty overheating problems, otherwise it would adversely affect the success of the handset. The OnePlus 2 will be officially released in a grand VR event on 27th of this month.
