OnePlus 3 Upgrade Aims To Unsettle Google Pixel And iPhone 7 Sales

The newer version is likely to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor which will be an upgrade over the Snapdragon 820 in OnePlus 3. The Snapdragon 821 chip is already being used in most new flagships such as Google Pixel and Pixel XL, and even in some of the new mid-range phones such as the Lenovo Z2 Plus. OnePlus 3 already boasts of a 6 GB RAM, so the upgraded version should be significant performance-wise

OnePlus 4 may arrive next summer running 10nm Snapdragon 830

The Weibo post states that the OnePlus 4 will replace the OnePlus 3T in around June or July next year. It will also reportedly be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 830 processor. The Snapdragon 830 is rumored to be produced by Samsung using a 10nm assembly process.

TSMC has no experience whatsoever in producing chips using a 10nm process and as a result, the Snapdragon 830 may not be that efficient in its power consumption, as compared to Samsung’s version. Phonearena has not confirmed the rumour yet. The OnePlus 4 is rumoured to come running Android 7.0 out of the box and will have a CPU clocked at a massive 3.0GHz frequency coupled with an Adreno 620 GPU. Speculations also state that there will be a 4,000mAh battery powering it all.
