Alleged OnePlus 5T benchmark nets one of the highest Snapdragon 835 scores

OnePlus 5T tips, specs and renders are being hurtled at us incessantly these days, indicating that the launch is near, and, indeed, it is expected to be unveiled as soon as next week, on November 16th. This time around, however, we have something more tangible to lean on than mere speculation, as a OnePlus device coded as A5010, just made a pass through the Geekbench database.

While the numbers it scored are top-shelf, and in line with the other top Snapdragon 835 benchmarks – those of the HTC U11 – we are more intrigued to find a confirmation that the OnePlus 5T would indeed …


First Razer phone to be a beast with 8 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 835 CPU inside


Gaming powerhouse Razer may have been working on a
smartphone for over a year, but, until now, it provided almost no details about
the device. Thankfully, the company is seemingly planning to unveil the handset

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is now official: 6-inch 18:9 display, Snapdragon 835, global network support

The Xiaomi Mi MIX was certainly one of the most interesting products of 2016: in fact, one could argue it was the device that kickstarted the bezel-less design trend we’ve seen gain immense popularity over the course of the past year, with everyone from Samsung to LG jumping on the trend.

But even though Xiaomi positioned the Mi MIX more as a proof-of-concept than an actual mainstream product — quantities were limited, and the phone was only sold in a handful of countries — it was a pretty effective PR move, pushing people’s perception of Xiaomi …

The Moto Z2 Force Edition is now official: Snapdragon 835, ShatterShield display, dual camera

Call them what you will, but you sure can’t accuse Moto phones of being inconsistent with their design. Ever since the Moto Z, the rounded square shape and the circle camera bump have become synonymous with the Lenovo-owned brand. So it’s no surprise the company’s latest flagship, the Moto Z2 Force Edition, would have the key characteristics of its predecessor on full display.

But those of you in the know with the Moto lineup will immediately raise the point that the Z line has reasons beyond simple brand consistency to remain the same between generations. …

Google’s next pair of flagships in the Pixel line aren’t expected to come out in a while, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get some information about it beforehand.

Confirmed: OnePlus 5 will feature a Snapdragon 835 processor and front fingerprint scanner

In recent years, fingerprint scanners have become almost ubiquitous when it comes to high-end (and even mid-end, or more modest) smartphones. 

While some handsets – like the iPhone 7 or HTC U11 – feature fingerprint scanners on the front, there’s a large number of important phones that have their scanners on the back – Samsung Galaxy S8, Google Pixel, LG G6, and so on. As you may know, handsets made by OnePlus fall into the latter category – they’ve always had fingerprint scanners on the front. And we now know that this won’t change with the upcoming OnePlus 5.
