As well as all of that extra extra speed and multitasking prowess, the key advantage of the LPDDR4 tech will be a battery efficiency boost. In a post on its community support forums, the company explained its decision.
“Why did we choose LPDDR4 for the OnePlus 2?” the post read. “
“The RAM of the OnePlus 2 uses a lower operating voltage than its predecessor, decreasing from 1.2V to 1.1V. And with speeds up to 32 GB/s, it is also twice as fast as the LPDDR3. It offers optimal support for power-saving low frequency mode that brings clock speeds down when performing those everyday and necessary tasks.”
The firm also promised a better experience with slo-mo video, facial recognition and low-latency gaming thanks to the new memory chip.

The revelation adds to an impressive-sounding spec sheet that already officially includes an improved 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, supposedly without the overheating issues that have plagued the chipset.
The company added: “Unlike 32-bit processors that can only utilize up to 3GB of RAM, our 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor uses all 4GB to its maximum potential.”
The remaining information (or what’s left of it) will be revealed at a special event on July 27, which will be broadcast in virtual reality.
