    A lot of you have been wondering about the specs of the OnePlus One - some of you are even questioning if it actually exists! I want to assure you it does, and tell you a little about the CPU we’ve chosen.

    Reading through the forums and our social media, there are differing opinions among you when it comes to which components make up the perfect smartphone. But when it comes to the processor, you overwhelmingly prefer a Qualcomm chip. I agree, my engineers agree, and we have chosen the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, a 2.3 GHz quad-core chipset with 4G connectivity and an excellent performance/power consumption ratio.

    I spoke at length with my product engineers about which CPU to choose. They gave me an in depth analysis of just about every CPU available on the market, going carefully through the pros and cons of each. It needed to be fast, run smoothly, run multiple programs without fear of lagging or crashing, and still offer great battery performance.

    We spent countless hours trying out the latest CPUs. Ultimately, it was clear that the Snapdragon 800 provided the best speed, battery consumption and heat management. It also allows us to get our product in your hand faster, with the highest optimization. We didn’t want to announce our product, only to be able to ship it six months later.

    Are there newer CPUs on the market? Yes, and the higher number may have given us a slight marketing advantage while not providing any noticeable change in performance. But ‘Never Settle’ doesn't mean we tip the scale to one extreme, and let our users suffer the imbalance. We’re completely confident that this is the best choice to deliver a product with the best overall user experience and performance on time for Q2.

    Great choice! SD 800 is more than enough!

    And by choosing not 801 or 805 it gives us chance to get device faster. It does make perfect sense for me.

    Waiting for the next teaser from you. For now 64GB option with SD800 really does sound like #NeverSetlle
    Great work!

    Good choice, S800 is perfect, very powerful and i guess a phone with it and with a good optimization will last a long time so no disappointment here, thanks for the info :)

    Im happy with the decision, no reason to go with anything bigger that will cost more and provide insufficient advantages. Next years model can have the 810 or some octa-core but right now the 800 will suffice my needs.

    More than enough for me, and I guessed right too!! The 800 gets the job done.

    Thanks for the update Pete. I think a Snapdragon 800 will serve us nicely and help you reach your sub $400 price point.
