For OnePlus, announcing the OnePlus 6 on May 16 at an event in London is nothing more than a formality now, as majority of its design and hardware details are already known. While some details about the OnePlus 6 have been leaked by various sources, some have been revealed by OnePlus itself. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC. Well, considering this a flagship smartphone, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. And, just a couple of days ahead of its launch, the OnePlus 6 has paid a visit to a popular benchmarking website to re-confirm previously confirmed specs.
The OnePlus 6 has appeared on benchmarking website Geekbench. It has been listed on Geekbench with model number OnePlus A6003, which is in line with the model number A5000 of OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 6 listing on Geekbench reveals Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8 GB RAM and Android 8.1 Oreo under the hood. The chip and the amount of RAM have already been confirmed by OnePlus CEO.
That said, we are pretty sure that there will be another variant of the OnePlus 6 that will come with 6 GB RAM. The 6 GB RAM variant is said to come with 64 and 128 GB of storage, with the 8 GB RAM variant coming with 256 GB of storage. However, we might see the 8 GB RAM variant coming with 128 GB of storage as well.
