It looks like notch display is going to be the new trend this year after last year’s 18:9 displays. Another smartphone maker OnePlus looks all set to adopt the notch display for its next flagship OnePlus 6. After some live photos leak earlier, now OnePlus 6 has again been leaked boasting impressive benchmark scores.
OnePlus is supposed to launch the next flagship this year which has been confirmed by the company. The photos of the phone have been leaked on Weibo earlier last month which show the display and back of the device and it looks inspired by the iPhone X and the Galaxy S9. Now, Android Central from a source close to OnePlus revealed AnTuTu benchmark scores of the OnePlus 6 with other key details about the upcoming flagship.
OnePlus 6 Benchmarks and Specifications
As per the benchmark scores, OnePlus 6 is codenamed A6000. The overall benchmark score is 276510 which is the best until now by any device and even beats the previous champion Mi Mix 2S, which is set to be launched on March 27. The CPU score of OnePlus 6 also makes clear that it will be powered by Snapdragon 845, which has already been confirmed by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau.
Further, benchmarks can’t really tell much about the phone. However, OnePlus’s recent devices have been among the speediest phones with the latest hardware and there hasn’t been any performance issue, so OnePlus will be no exception.
OnePlus 6 Design
Notably, today’s benchmark listing leak also appears to be in-line with earlier live photo leaks of the OnePlus 6. The live photos of the device had shown a space at the top for a display cut out. Also, the middle of the status bar is taller and blank. The system clock is relocated over to the left and the set of icons is on the right.
Going by the arrangement of UI in this way, it is confirmed now that the OnePlus 6 will follow the most popular smartphone trend of 2018. The aspect ratio of the screenshots reveals it will be 19:9 which is effectively 18:9 with a little space on top for the notch. The previous leaks also suggest that the phone will pack a glass-backed design along with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, dual cameras, and minimal screen bezels, of course.
The OnePlus 6 leaks have been surfacing the internet for quite some time now, and it’s possible that we might see a launch earlier this year. However, last year OnePlus 5 arrived in late June, so it is also possible that we have to wait a little more.
