OnePlus 6 with 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 845 shows up on Geekbench

OnePlus 6 with 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 845 shows up on Geekbench
The OnePlus 6 has been spotted on Geekbench ahead of its unveiling next week. It was only yesterday when the company’s CEO inadvertently revealed the device in all its glory and now, less than 24 hours later, a new Geekbench listing appears to have confirmed some of the range-topping specs that are to be expected.

According to the posting in question, the previously-confirmed octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 is present alongside 8GB of RAM. Together, these achieved a single-core score of 2402 and a multi-core result of 8931. This puts the OnePlus 6 on par with most other 2018 flagships. Regarding the internal storage options, the listing fails to reveal any details, but previous rumors have pointed towards a 256GB model. In addition, the Chinese OEM is said to be working on 64GB and 128GB variants. Also, as expected from a OnePlus release, Android 8.1 Oreo is present.

Aside from the internal specs, the OnePlus 6 is expected to feature a dual-camera setup on the rear, comprised of a 20-megapixel main sensor and a secondary 16-megapixel lens. Furthermore, a second 16-megapixel camera is set to be placed up front. Regarding the smartphone’s design, yesterday’s hands-on leak confirmed the glass and aluminum build of the OnePlus 6, with both a black and white variant in the works. In addition to this, previous teasers have pointed towards the launch of a purple color option on May 16.

OnePlus is yet to confirm any details in regards to the official pricing and release of its next flagship device, but with the official announcement set to take place next week, it seems likely that sales should commence by the end of the month. Furthermore, previous rumors have pointed towards the base model costing around $555, with this set to rise to $800 for the limited edition Avengers: Infinity War variant.

The 845 is not built for pure performance. You see, unlike Apple, Qualcomm can't just make 3W SoCs and get away with it, and hence they have to optimize for power consumption, since android left unchecked is pretty bad at it. What they are left with is around 1-1.5W power envelope to play with and if they can achieve 90% of the overall performance, I say that's amazing since the 845 at peak consumes 1/3 of the power A11 or Exynos 9810 does, while performing not that bad in comparison. Also, as a result, it throttles much, much less than the other two. Just see what happened with the 9810 fiasco with S9, and you'll understand how bad a wide SoC does on android if not made and tuned properly. Also, in the GPU department, there has been absolutely no competition, with the adreno GPUs basically killing the custom GPUs on Apple and the Mali ones from ARM in performance as well as efficiency. The 845 is a design win, no matter what the benchmarks say. I'd say to read more Anandtech and less BGR.

835 and 845 are pretty damn good chips. Huge improvements over the 810 and 820.

820 is also a great chip. I think it's better to use 820/821 than 636/660. You will get much better gpu and almost same cpu power at low prices (Now 821 is cheaper than the 660).

Nope, the 636 and the 660 are much more efficient than the 820/821 devices. Yes, you lose a bit of the GPU grunt, but the tradeoff is worth it. Also, you get 8 cores, which help with power efficiency as well since now the cores can run at slower clock speed while maintaining same performance.

If you don't game the 636 and 660 are better and more efficient however isp and other chipset features might give the 820 an edge.

Both chips are still ranked among the top performing 5 best SoCs worldwide. 835 only differs from the 845 in that its devices generally don’t have AI software updates.

Where do you get your numbers from because I’m pretty sure the snapdragon 845 pulls around 4.4W at peak.

Thanks for the correction. It's like this: S845 single core: 1W S845 multi core: ~4W These are the excerpts from Anandtech: "And while we weren’t able to test for system power efficiency improvements for this preview, we weren’t left empty-handed and were able to quickly do a CPU power virus on the QRD845. The results there have turned out promising, with 1W per-core and slightly under 4W for four-core power usage, which are very much in line with the Snapdragon 835. The new system cache and GPU improvements should also noticeably improve SoC – and in turn device – efficiency, so I’m expecting that 2018’s Snapdragon 845 powered devices to showcase excellent battery life." A11: "They didn't go nuts on power, Apple also has ~3-3.5W ST platform active power and more in FP workloads. The perf doesn't seem to be an issue of the core but of the software."

I used S9 plus Exyons 9810 for a week and I played online game not the most graphics intesive games. But overall performance really good no overheating or throttling, might be graphics and texturing not as good as snapdragon, but drop frame issue and game lagging like S8 and S7 Exyons not showing anymore on S9 plus Exyons 9810, the problem not with Exyons only there’s some games on android optimized really bad even for snapdragon.

I'm not talking about gaming honestly. The games on android are actually very low intensity. Asphalt 8 played decently on Snapdragon 600 devices lol, and we don't have games that look much better than that one now. The issue is coding and API level optimization with games. However, what is bad with 9810 is the power management and the speed. For some reason the 9810 is tuned very badly for performance and battery life. Anandtech did a whole article on it and the results were very bad. Check it out: It's still an okay chip by 2016 or 2017 standards, but the 845 eats it for breakfast, even after being a smaller and lower performance chip.

It’s ok just an opinion despite anandtech mentioned that GPU of 9810 are really bad. Battrey life aren’t that bad as anandtech mentioned I could get 24 hrs of use, screen on time around 5 to 6 hrs that’s more than enough for a phone that run QHD resolution plus Samsung touchwiz UI it’s not an ordinary skin like other Android OEM’s it’s kinda an OS the run inside Android OS and this one of the reason why performance reduced in long run. But what I noticed Samsung start to care about these issues through security patch update by iproving performance and fix bugs that cause performance issue and overall experience.

Always funny when I see someone post this. Go watch any Youtube video doing speed tests against Android flagships. Great, the Iphone wins on paper. Too bad I could care less about supposed speed.

Single core on the bionic is almost double and its 6 months older than 845 lmao

That's not how it works. The exynos 9810 scores within 10% of the A11, yet is a much worse chip than the Snapdragon 845. I would rather have better battery life in intensive tasks.

26. deleon629 unregistered

iPhones don’t do anything intensively, and people are still amazed at the benchmark results...As if it can do much more than take calls, selfies, and open Facebook smh

What would you do with the marginally higher score when you don't have the freedom of Android OS?

12. NateDiaz

Posts: 1094; Member since: Mar 03, 2018

Freedom of changing wallpapers and launchers? lmao

25. deleon629 unregistered

Exactly. I hate seeing iPhones on benchmarks comparisons if the damn phone still can’t allow you to do simple tasks that Android phones have been able to do for the past 6 years or more. Of course it’s gonna be faster, it’s like buying a unicycle with a V-12 engine lol

Not even close to exyone 9810. There’s an rumors for Oreo 8.1 update for S9 and S9 plus shows in geekbench and it’s true unlike Note 9 fake benchmark shows that multicore performance over 10K.

OP 6 will mostly run circles around the iphone x in terms of general speed.

But in real life perfomance with better multitasking oneplus 6 will be better

It's funny how these OEMs are all so thoughtful enough to provide a way to hide the notch instead of eliminating it altogether. I hate this bezelless trend. Soon all that will matter is the software running on the phone cause true design is going by the wayside.

Anyone who buys Apple pays more for less. Its always been this way and probably always will be.

If they would have kept this phone under $500, they would have made a sale, but at $555, this phone isn't a deal. The Galaxy S9 is $720. That's a difference of only $165 and it comes with a better camera, expandable storage, iris, facial and fingerprint scanning, stereo Dolby speakers, a better display, headphones that come in the package, plus no notch. This phone is an iPhone wannabe for folks that want to Always Settle. Hopefully, OnePlus will get back to the things that made them the Flagship Killer and not the flagship copy cat.

For 720$ I can get S9 plus even.

I’d like to see a screen quality comparison between this handset and the LG G7; being that they have nearly all the exact same specs.
