Latest Benchmark Reveals OnePlus 6 More Powerful And Faster Than Samsung Galaxy S9, Device Expected To Release Soon
As of late, we’ve seen numerous leaks and speculations pop-up on the interwebs regarding upcoming devices such as the Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone 11. This is no different for the smartphone maker OnePlus, specifically with their rumored, successor to the OnePlus 5T, the One Plus 6, which is, at the moment, seeing an increase in coverages in different tech outlets.
In the forefront of these talks is OnePlus 6’s leaked benchmark stats, which saw an alleged initial lay-down on the popular benchmarking site GeekBench. According to the results, the OnePlus 6 packs quite the punch in terms of single-core and multi-core tallies.
Although still not fully confirmed if this particular device tagged simply as ‘NS P7819’ really is the OnePlus 6, the model number in earlier news and leaks perfectly matches with the phone in question. Despite this being the case, CNET argues that the implications of this revelation could send tremors to smartphones currently holding the top position in the market as the ‘NS P7819’ showcased an amazing single-core score of 2,535 and a multi-core score of 8,632 — a feat that one-ups Samsung’s recently released Galaxy S9 series.

More into detail, the device is also said to be integrated with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the 845, which is similarly present in the Galaxy S9 and the S9 Plus. In contrast with the rumored OnePlus 6, the Galaxy S9 scored 2,180 and 8,302 in the single-core and multi-core categories respectively. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S9 Plus registered 2,444 and 8,416 in the single-score and the multi-core aspect respectively. OnePlus 6, as with tradition, might see a lower price point than the Galaxy S9 series, which means it will retain its title as the industry’s ‘flagship killer.’
Aside from specification hints, we were also provided with a sneak-peek at the possible design and form of the OnePlus 6 through the self-professed industry insider Evan Blass. In a Twitter post, Blass broke new ground by releasing images of the upcoming OnePlus 6. The images clearly show what the new OnePlus phone has in tow which includes a dual camera setup on the rear, a fingerprint sensor at the back, a USB Type-C port, and a headphone jack.
Android Police placed particular importance on the device back panel, which featured a textured appearance reminiscent of previous installments. They said that the back panel looks similar to that of wood, however, they also indicated that this might not be the case.
Currently, there are still no confirmations on the OnePlus 6’s release date, but judging from the OnePlus 5T’s discontinued sales in North America, it’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing the device not long from now.
