The Chinese smartphone maker, OPPO, debuted its flagship smartphone, the OPPO Find X (Review) back in June. The handset featured an industry-first motorized sliding camera and was powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset. In the short time, OPPO even announced the flagship OPPO R17 and R17 Pro handsets in China. Now, it appears that OPPO is prepping up for the launch of yet another powerful device. OPPO’s new smartphone which carries a model number as PBDM00 has surfaced on Geekbench. The phone has managed to score 2,063 points in the single-core test, and 8,113 points in the multi-core test. The benchmark listing shows that the OPPO PBDM00 will be packing an octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset, which will be clocked at 1.77GHz. The SoC is coupled with 6GB of RAM, and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Furthermore, the findings discovered from the Geekbench indicate that this new OPPO smartphone will run Android 9 Pie out of the box. It will be OPPO’s second device that will be offering the taste of the latest Android version on top of Color OS.
The device had already had received the prior TENAA certification in China two days ago. The smartphone is said to measure 157.6×74.6×7.9mm in size. It might sport a taller 6.4-inch display. A 1,800mAh battery is supposed to power the device’s TENAA listing, although that could be higher. And that’s all the information we can grab from the TENAA and Geekbench listing. In the next few weeks, we should be able to learn more details about this handset regarding its camera configurations, screen size resolution, and marketing name.
As of now, the Chinese smartphone maker hasn’t scheduled an event in China, nor it is teasing the launch of the new device on Weibo. We can expect the device to debut in the next few days. For now, we only can recommend you to stay tuned as we will be reporting more information about this smartphone. OPPO is yet to establish itself in the premium smartphone segment and the company has a lot of ground to cover before it can take the likes of Apple and Samsung head-on.
