OnePlus 6 pops up on Geekbench benchmarking website, shows it can battle (and beat?) the Galaxy S9
Ever since it launched its first device, OnePlus has had the philosophy of offering the most powerful hardware, essential software features with no bloat, all packaged in a very aggressively-priced product. They call their phones "flagship killers" because they are supposed to offer the same performance as the best handsets out there at the fraction of the cost.

So, the OnePlus 6 is supposedly going to be released soon. And, no surprise, the leaks have revealed that the phone would rock top-tier hardware — a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a minimum of 6 GB of RAM, with an 8 GB variant highly probable, since the OnePlus 5 already had that tier.

Recently, a supposed OnePlus 6 test has been posted on the benchmarking tool Geekbench's website. Listed as NS NS P7819 — OnePlus 6's alleged model number — it shows impressive scores. On the single-core test, Geekbench rated it 2535 and, on multi-core, it got 8632.

Now, if one does a quick search for "Samsung" on the same website, they would notice that the Snapdragon 845-equipped variants of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ get scores in the same ballpark... but a bit lower.

So, yeah, for what it is — this alleged pre-production unit of the OnePlus 6 scored higher than the Galaxy S9 on Geekbench.

But that's not everything to be excited about when it comes to the new "flagship killer". The rumor mill insists that the phone would have an under-the-screen fingerprint sensor (and a notch, but let's not talk about that). So, it might be the first internationally-available flagship smartphone to have a fingerprint scanner in the screen, beating out the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (assuming the rumors about the latter are also correct).
