OnePlus Two, the next smartphone from the Chinese-start-up OnePlus, will have a Type C-USB charger. The company confirmed the announcement on Twitter.
Type C-USB was recently shown by Apple in the recent launch of its new MacBook. The Type C-USB supports various new USB standards like USB 3.1 and USB power delivery (USB PD). It also supports HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA with adapters of course. It’s not clear whether OnePlus Two will have just this port or a standard USB port as well, but going from the tweet, it looks like Type C-USB will be the only port.OnePlus One also confirmed in a recent blogpost that the next phone will come with the Snapdragon 810 chip specifically engineered for the phone.
However, that has raised concerns among users about its performance given how 810 has caused serious heating issues in the past.OnePlus wrote on their blog, “OnePlus 2 will come loaded with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor, engineered for OnePlus and our next generation flagship phone.” OnePlus insists that the chip will be perfect for multi-tasking, better camera speed, battery life, LTE and more.The company went on to address the heating concerns and said, “Although there have been reports that the 810 runs warmer than its predecessors, we assure you that we have taken all the necessary precautions and beyond to prevent this from occurring in the 2. We worked very closely with Qualcomm’s engineers to integrate an improved version of the chipset (v2.1) in the OnePlus 2, and fine-tuned both hardware and software.”
While the wait for OnePlus Two continues, the pricing and specs of the OnePlus One make it sound like a good deal. Read our review of the OnePlus One here.
