OnePlus 5T, the newest flagship smartphone from the Chinese company, has been out for just a few months, but rumors about OnePlus 6 have already started making its way. The OnePlus 6 is expected to launch sometime near the second half of this year and it is expected to be one of the most powerful Android smartphones.
Now a new leak showing benchmarks of purported OnePlus 6 sheds more light on how powerful the device will be at the time of launch. Android Central has obtained benchmarks of an upcoming device with model number OnePlus A6000, which might debut as the OnePlus 6. The smartphone scored 2,76,510 overall, the highest recorded on Antutu yet. The score is higher than 2,73,741 Antutu score of Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship powered by Snapdragon 845 mobile platform.
The score basically makes it clear that OnePlus 6 will be cleared by Snapdragon 845 and might have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of faster storage. However, it needs to be noted that benchmark scores have been proven to be tampered by Chinese smartphone makers. OnePlus was found running a script on its device that allocates more resources every time someone runs a benchmark application.
The screenshot of leaked benchmark reveals that the display is taller than usual and there is an empty space at the top to house the notch. The display should support the 18:9 aspect ratio and there is a possibility that OnePlus 6 will share its design DNA with that of upcoming Oppo R15 and R15 Plus.
We don’t have much information about the upcoming OnePlus 6 but a recent leak suggested it will feature a notch similar to that of iPhone X. The leaked image also suggests that OnePlus 6 will switch to a metal and glass back but it is not clear whether OnePlus plans to support wireless charging.
Other design changes expected include a vertically stacked dual camera system similar to that of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The fingerprint sensor could be placed below the camera module and might look similar to that of Galaxy S9. OnePlus has not said anything about its upcoming flagship and there is a possibility that it might adopt a different design altogether.
