OnePlus 2 benchmark reveals an exciting new detail

The OnePlus 2 is less than a month away from its official announcement, and we’re now learning one more bit of information about the upcoming device. A recent benchmark registered at Geekbench reveals that the new phone could pack 4GB of RAM.

That would put the OnePlus 2 ahead of devices like the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4 when it comes to pure memory. Only a few other phones already offer that much RAM, most notably the ASUS ZenFone 2, but we’re expecting more handsets to join the 4GB club before the end of the year.

The benchmark lists the device by its model number Spring ONE A2003. PhoneArena notes that this is one of three models for the OnePlus 2 that passed through Bluetooth certification this week. The new phone is clocked at 1.55GHz, suggesting OnePlus may be slowing down its Snapdragon 810 processor to avoid any possible overheating issues associated with the octa-core chip.

Alongside its processor and RAM, the OnePlus 2 is also confirmed to pack USB-C support and a fingerprint scanner that the company claims is faster than Touch ID. Rumor has it the device will also feature a dual lens camera in back and an 8-megapixel shooter up front. OnePlus may even use some metal in its design this year, with recent leaks pointing to a stainless steel rim around the edges.

The OnePlus 2 is set to make its official debut on July 27 at an event that will be broadcast over virtual reality. We can’t wait to see the phone’s final design, though it’s possible we’ll get an unofficial look before the planned unveiling.
