Just to be clear, this is the regular OnePlus 8 5G model, not the ‘Pro’ variant. OnePlus is also rumored to release a ‘Lite’ model of the phone, though that device may not launch at the same time as the other two.
We did not see many leaks regarding the ‘Lite’ model, so we’re not really sure if it will arrive or not. If it does, it will be a mid-range smartphone, not a flagship-grade model.
The OnePlus 8 5G surfaced on Geekbench with 12GB of RAM and Snapdragon 865
The OnePlus 8 5G that surfaced on Geekbench, not only features 12GB of RAM, but it also comes with Android 10. All of that is expected, as the device will probably be available in both 8GB and 12GB RAM variants.
The phone surfaced on Geekbench on March 1, and it managed to score 4,331 points in the single-core test. It hit 12,686 points in the multi-core test.
Yes, the device is running the Snapdragon 865, as expected. That is the last piece of information that Geekbench shared about this smartphone.
The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are expected to arrive sooner than expected. They were expected to launch in May, but a well-known tipster recently said they’ll arrive at the end of March, or in early April.
That actually makes sense as both devices started leaking out at the end of last year. We’ve already seen CAD-based renders of both phones, and quite a bit of other information. We do know what to expect in both the design and spec departments.
Both devices will be made out of metal and glass. Both will include really thin bezels, and will look almost identical. The ‘Pro’ model will be slightly larger, and slightly more powerful. It will include a more powerful camera setup on the back.
Both devices will sport a display camera hole in the top-left corner. On top of that, they’ll both feature curved displays, and in-display fingerprint scanners.
Both OnePlus 8 flagships will include 120Hz displays
The Snapdragon 865 will fuel both phones, while both of them will sport 120Hz displays. The resolution on the OnePlus 8 Pro panel is expected to be higher, though.
Both phones are expected to offer wireless charging, which will be a first for OnePlus. They’re also expected to offer a proper IP certification for water and dust resistance, which will be another first for the company. Stay tuned, more information will probably follow soon.
