It’s that time of the year when the Chinese manufacturer OnePlus releases the second version of its flagship device which is also known as the T variant. Recently OnePlus has been testing all its devices on multiple platforms to receive scores and add necessary updates and tweaks to make significant improvements to the overall performance of the phone. But we have a new leak coming from Winfuture.mobi.
Customers associated with OnePlus who have been following this trend know that the device usually shows up in code names and all this camouflage is now one of OnePlus’ strategy for product testing and update. While official images of the device are already out, the benchmark scores provide us with a lot of insight about the device. The oneplus 6t recently made it to the geekbench website and it comes to us as no surprise since oneplus was testing this device for months now. Thus, the device appears at Geekbench apparently under the name ” FS FS P8801 ” with a score of 2510 (single core) and 8639 (multi core), and not under its official marketing name. Oneplus had started working on this device and getting performance scores from various websites ever since the beginning of August. This is required to maximize the potential and performance of the phone in this highly competitive market. The use of a false name has meanwhile become a tradition at OnePlus, because the OnePlus 6 was found in the spring as ” NS NS P7819 ” at Geekbench – because the early samples demonstrably showed this changed model number in the menu “over the phone” of Android.
While the benchmark scores are not that surprising since the upgrade has been very incremental it is however interesting to see the similarity and the benchmark scores between the 6T and its predecessor which makes us wonder if the upgrade is really necessary. The optical fingerprint scanner and the water drop notch are perhaps the most significant changes made to the device and we can share this with much more confidence after the recent benchmark scores. This is not a bad thing since the oneplus 6 in itself is a very powerful device and the scores on multiple performance websites are remarkably high. While the 6T maintains most of the scores if not exceeding it, the resemblance in performance comes with a major upgrade in design and functionality.
The OnePlus 6T will most likely come with a 6.4-inch OLED display and, according to the manufacturer, has a fingerprint reader integrated directly under the display. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octacore SoC is under the hood, which comes as usual up to 2.8 gigahertz maximum clock. The new OnePlus 6T comes from the factory with the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 9.0 (or Android “Pie”). The launch of the new top smartphone will take place on October 30, 2018 as part of a major launch event in New York City.
