#LeakPeek: OnePlus 8 Pro beats Samsung's S20 Ultra on Geekbench
The upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro looks primed to beat Samsung's top-of-the-line S20 Ultra as the fastest Android phone ever. A screenshot posted on SlashLeaks has revealed the Geekbench scores of the OnePlus flagship, indicating better single-core and multi-core scores than S20 Ultra. Interestingly, both the handsets tout the same Snapdragon 865 chipset and 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM.
Geekbench is a cross-platform processor benchmark platform which grades processors on their single-core and multi-core performances. While calculating multi-core scores, Geekbench runs multiple streams of instructions simultaneously per core and reports an aggregate score. With single-core scores, the same process is applied but on a single core. The quicker a CPU completes the instructions, the higher is its Geekbench score.
As per the leaked results, an upcoming OnePlus smartphone (presumably the top-end OnePlus 8 Pro) has 906 points in single-core tests and 3,398 in multi-core tests. In comparison, the S20 Ultra trails with 805 and 3,076 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. The difference in scores could be attributed to certain hardware optimizations on the OnePlus flagship.
According to leaked renders, the OnePlus 8 Pro will sport a punch-hole design with curved screen edges and fairly slim top and bottom bezels. The handset is also touted to offer IP68-rated water resistance - a first for any OnePlus smartphone. Further, it is expected to sport a 6.78-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and built-in MEMC chip for content smoothing.
The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to come with a quad-camera setup comprising a 48MP (f/1.78) main sensor, a 48MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide-angle lens with 120-degree field-of-view, an 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto lens, and another 5MP camera. On the front, it will sport a 16MP shooter.
The OnePlus 8 Pro will be powered by a 5G-ready Snapdragon 865 chipset, coupled with 8GB/12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Under the hood, it will run on Android 10-based Oxygen OS and is rumored to pack a 4,510mAh battery with 30W wired charging, 30W wireless charging, and a paltry 3W reverse wireless charging support.
