OnePlus 5 arrives on Geekbench just prior to unveiling with 8GB of RAM and SD-835 SoC
Today, the phone made an appearance on Geekbench where all of the expected specs appeared. Yes, the aforementioned Snapdragon 835 chipset and the 8GB of RAM both surfaced. Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed.
With a single-core score of 1917 and a multi-core score of 6562, the OnePlus 5 had a similar Geekbench score as the HTC U11 (1912 single-core and 6137 multi-core scores). That isn't too surprising since both are powered by Qualcomm's latest SoC. A 3300mAh battery is said to be on board the OnePlus 5, and the dual-camera setup on back includes one sensor that shoots in monochrome; this allows for sharper and more detailed photos. Based on a night-time picture allegedly snapped by OnePlus CEO and co-founder Pete Lau, the OnePlus 5 is going to take solid pictures even in low-light conditions.
Lau has also revealed that the phone will be the thinnest among flagship models.
