OnePlus Pixel spotted on Geekbench

OnePlus Pixel spotted on Geekbench
Well, we're not sure what to make of this, but a phone with the name OnePlus Pixel has appeared on Geekbench. The Snapdragon 820 chipset under the hood, was running the quad-core CPU at 1.59GHz for the test. 6GB of RAM came along for the ride. We do expect that the OnePlus 3T will be unveiled on November 15th, powered by the Snapdragon 821 SoC.

Having the new Snapdragon chipset onboard is quite a coup for OnePlus. It means that the OnePlus 3T should provide faster performance and slightly longer battery life than provided on the OnePlus 3. The latter has the Snapdragon 820 aboard.

But we digress. Getting back to the OnePlus Pixel, it scored highly on Geekbench. The single-core tally was 2326 with a 5475 multi-core score. Regardless if this is just the OnePlus 3T, or some other model, it should be able to handle anything thrown at it.

Could be the SD821 too. Remember everyone was upset when the Pixel had these same clock speeds that resembled the SD820 but it was actually the efficiency version of the 821.

You mean the lower binned version? The Pro versions of these chips (SD 801-AC comes to mind) actually are able to handle high frequencies better, and operate at lower frequencies more efficiently too. That's why the 801 series had better battery life across the board over its earlier 800 series containing competitors. Apples to apples and frequency to frequency, the 2.35GHz capable 821 will be better at battery than the 2.15GHz version. Clock at the same frequencies and you'll see better life out of it.

Qualcomm itself disagrees and they design these chips. I think I'll believe them unless you can show me some testing that shows otherwise.

Well the 801 clocked at 2.3ghz (in certain phones) was less efficient than the 801 clocked at 2.5ghz. the higher clocked ones are always the better binned ones, and voltage tables showed it very clearly.

Wrong. You have very little knowledge of the technicalities of why some SoCs can be clocked higher and others can't. All the different versions of SD 800/801 was a perfect showcase of this. Go to anandtech and read the deep dive articles about this.

I never claimed to have any knowledge of the technicalities of SoCs. I said that Qualcomm officially said the higher clocked version gives better performance while the version clocked at the speeds of the SD820 offer better efficiency. Anandtech or yourself don't create the SD821 so I will believe the engineers (Qualcomm) who spent years designing them. :)

If you take the higher clocked version and lower its clock to the lower clocked version the result will be the one thats can support higher clock will be more efficient.

You the real MVP!

I have to agree with SYSTEM_LORD. An example is me and a friend buyed two computer at the same time back in the day. Both used all identical component ( from motherboard , memory , cpu , harddrive ect ect ect ) And mine could overclock more. So its make sense thats some soc can run better than other even if its same core and architecture as its happen on pc as well.

seems faked, I thought 7.1 was meant for google pixel only

i thought 6.0.1 was meant for google nexus only :^ ]

This is op3 (cm14.1 change model to pixel for Google Assistant)

This is the exact and accurate explanation for this benchmark... I have done the same on my OnePlus One so when I benchmark,it'll record it as OnePlus Pixel Snapdragon 801 1.94 GHz 3 GB RAM

No way! If geekbench 4 it is, then how could a phone with Snapdragon 821 even, score this high?? It seems as if the sd 830 is powering this phone, which could be a oneplus prototype being tested by the company.

It's fake.

I don't think it's a new device but rather a OnePlus 3 with a custom Nougat ROM. In order to enable Google Assistant on non-Pixel devices, you have to edit the build.prop file so it displays whatever device it is as a Google Pixel
