OnePlus 6T gets benchmarked with Snapdragon 845 & 8GB of RAM

OnePlus 6T gets benchmarked with Snapdragon 845 & 8GB of RAM
Leaked OnePlus 6T marketing renders

Ahead of its debut on October 30, the OnePlus 6T has shown up on a new Geekbench listing which essentially confirms everything that was expected.

Following in the footsteps of the OnePlus 6 and essentially every other 2018 Android flagship, the OnePlus 6T will ship with the Snapdragon 845 on the inside. In the case of this particular device, the processor is coupled with a considerable 8GB of RAM, although a cheaper offering with 6GB is to be expected too. All models will, however, ship with Android 9 Pie pre-installed along with the Oxygen OS 9.0 overlay.

When it comes to the actual score achieved, 2510 points were registered on the single-core test, while this number grew to 8639 on the multi-core result. This unsurprisingly puts the OnePlus 6T firmly on par with the OnePlus 6 that debuted earlier on this.

Although there are relatively few changes between the 2018 OnePlus flagships, each one is rather significant. For one, the rear-facing fingerprint scanner has been swapped out for a new optic in-display solution which may not be as reliable. Also, the wide notch present on the original OnePlus 6 is gone and in its place is a new waterdrop variant that is much more minimalistic. Perhaps the most controversial change of all comes with the removal of the headphone jack, though. However, this has allowed OnePlus to include a significantly larger 3,700mAh battery in the T model.

Looks great , but im extremely satisfied with my S9 Plus and XS Max and my two phones. If i needed a third , this would be it. Why would i need a third ? No reason really.

I carry my Note 9 and iPhone Xs Max with me daily. My S9 plus and G7 are collecting dust but now I'll have to find room for the 6t and V40...

Why not? it bring new design, new camera setup, and new FPscanner. I think those new features is good enough for a half year cycle.

From "flagship killer" to "flagship" Oneplus has become so much greedy. Nobody likes their business model these days. If they want to continue doing business they have to stop raising their phone prices every 6 months.

It feels ironic coming from you to talk about a greedy company

The multi-core score on my OnePlus 6 has gone as high as 9300, so take that test with a grain of salt.

To attract Android spec monkeys, and have bragging rights. No other reason.

Mutitasking and RAM management. None do it better than the OnePlus phones with 8GB of RAM.

have you seen all the complaints about laggy Pixel 2/XL's ? I'd take an overabundance of RAM over a lack of it anyday

Lag proof. Great for games and loading apps faster as they're already in memory.

I like OnePlus software options, but sometimes wish they'd go Android One to feel a bit more "official" instead of the custom ROM feel they have. I don't know how much freedom OEMs have under Android One program tho
