Before the release of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, the best performing Android smartphone – according to benchmarks – was OnePlus 3T.
According to the latest reports, the 3T’s successor, OnePlus 5, which is to be unveiled this summer, has picked up from where the 2016 model left off, beating all available competition in terms of performance. This report comes from GSM Arena, where folks have had their hands on the latest benchmarks for the alleged OnePlus 5.
Like OnePlus 3T, the upcoming OnePlus 5 is expected to ship with high-end specs, specs that will match or beat the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 or Xiaomi Mi 6. From the benchmarks, it appears that the expectations of many will be fulfilled.
If this benchmark is to be believed, OnePlus 5 will be the best-performing phone on the market, at least until Apple unveils the iPhone 8 and/or iPhone 7S. During single-core tests, the phone managed to come in with a score of 1963, which is third to iPhone 7 Plus’ 3473 and Galaxy S8+’s (Exynos 8895) 1978. The Snapdragon 835 version of the S8+ is behind the new OnePlus phone with a score of 1929.
When it comes to multi-core tests, the OnePlus 5 has some mind-blowing results. The phone managed a score of 6687, which is the highest of any phone in the market right now. The Exynos 8895 variant of the Galaxy S8+ comes in second with a score of 6375 while the Snapdragon 835 variant has a score of 6084. The king of single-core tests, iPhone 7 Plus, has a multi-core score of 5664, which is almost same as the 5583 score of the Exynos 8890 variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge.
In addition to giving us highlights of what the Snapdragon 835 chipset inside the OnePlus 5 can do, the Geekbench benchmarks also revealed that the device will be powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which is what rumors have been pointing out to.
At the moment, we can’t confirm how legit this benchmark is, but if true, we are in for another cracking OnePlus 5 phone, probably way better than the current OnePlus 3T.
