OnePlus 6 benchmarks promise record performance and may confirm that notch

Sorry, Android fans, but it appears the OnePlus 6 will be the latest top smartphone to adopt Apple’s love-it-or-loathe-it ‘notched’ display.

According to purported benchmarking screenshots (below) passed onto Android Central, the display aspect ratio will be 19:9.

The OnePlus 5T offered an 18:9 display, so the display is likely to push further to the top of the device, albeit slightly obscured in the centre by the notch, which in turn houses the cameras and sensors.

This ties in with recently-leaked images (which we remain skeptical of) claiming to show the OnePlus 6 in all its glory.

In better news, the benchmarks, if accurate, seem to confirm the presence of the new Snapdragon 845 processor.

The AnTuTu score of 276,510 sets a new CPU score record so it’s highly unlikely this was achieved using any other platform.

This is no surprise. OnePlus CEO Pete Launched had previous said: “Of course, there’s no other choice,” when asked about whether the next flagship would feature Qualcomm’s latest mobile processors.

The OnePlus 6 is set to launch before the end of June this year, replacing the current 5T model. A recent leak also touted Android Oreo 8.1, up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Leaked images also showcased a repositioned dual camera array, aligned vertically in the centre of the device, rather than horizontally in the top left corner.

The fingerprint sensor now looks oval shaped compared to the circular sensor on the OnePlus 5T. Meanwhile, we expect that notch-laden display to retain full HD resolution.
