OnePlus 6 shines on Geekbench a week ahead of launch

Next week well see the long-awaited OnePlus 6 with a notch on the display at its official unveiling. A unit of the phone was just tested on Geekbench and this gives us some new information, as well as confirming older rumors.

OnePlus 6 will come with model number A6003, backing the trend of OnePlus 3 being A300X and OnePlus 5 being A500X. It will also come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, but thats no surprise since the company already confirmed the chipset.

OnePlus 6 shines on Geekbench week ahead of launch

The OnePlus 6 will arrive with the latest Android Oreo 8.1, but we dont know yet if it will support Project Treble. Back in December, a staff member said it was too risky to switch to the program for faster updates, so hopefully, the company fixed the issue in the past six months. The OnePlus A6003 has 8 GB RAM, but most likely there will be a cheaper 6 GB version.

We compared the Geekbench results with other Snapdragon 845 phones we already tested (along with the predecessor OnePlus 5T), and we have to say the scores look promising. We will be at the official event in London, so stay around for latest info and hands-on impressions when the time comes.
