The OnePlus 6T is only a couple of days away from its official unveiling on October 29. By now, we have seen and heard all there is to know about the upcoming flagship from OnePlus. However, the leak train shows no signs of stopping, because we have stumbled upon the motherlode here. As it turns out, the OnePLus 6T has appeared on AnTuTu benchmark and delivered what appears to be a rather impressive score. In fact, the scores show that it could be the fastest Android phone of 2018.
OnePlus 6T Benchmarked on AnTuTu
Benchmarks usually tell us a great deal about the performance capabilities of a smartphones. The higher the score, the faster it will be. Although, this doesn’t always accurately reflect the real world performance of the phone, but by the looks of it, the OnePlus 6T could be the fastest of all smartphones out there. To this effect, a OnePlus device with the model number A6013 was spotted on AnTuTu. The listed phone managed to score 297132 in the tests, which is quite high.
As you can see from the leaked image above, the device has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It was already known that the OnePlus 6T will use the same Snapdragon 845 chipset that was used in the OnePlus 6. However, it seems like OnePlus has better optimized the hardware and software to make the phone faster than its predecessor. The model number A6013 probably belongs to the global variant of the device, which will ship with OxygenOS. The China version, which is said to carry the model number A6010, will run on HydrogenOS. Both variants will use Google’s latest Android 9.0 Pie OS.
OnePlus 6T Faster Than Samsung Galaxy Note 9?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Review) is probably one of the fastest Android smartphones of 2018. However, the OnePlus 6T appears to be faster than the top-specced Galaxy Note 9 as well. We checked the AnTuTu scores of the Galaxy Note 9 with 8GB RAM and it posted a maximum of 235,000 points. That’s about 60,000 points shy of the OnePlus 6T result.
The Note 9 runs the Samsung Experience UI and is on Android 8.1 Oreo, which could be why it is slower. Android 9.0 Pie has several improvements and optimizations, which could help the Samsung smartphone perform better. The OxygenOS ROM on the OnePlus devices is significantly smoother and well optimised than the Samsung Experience UI. The former has less clutter and bloatware, which could have aided the OnePlus 6T in netting a better score in the benchmark. We will test this out once the phone is launched and give our own take on this.
The latest flagship killer from OnePlus will have a subtly modified design with a waterdrop notch, in-display fingerprint scanner, bigger battery, and improved dual-rear cameras. The OnePlus 6T will be available for purchase in India on November 2. It is expected to cost around INR 38,000 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage.
