OnePlus 8 Benchmark Report Shows Impressive Scores
We all know that Snapdragon 865 is a very capable chip, but to get the full out of it, software should also be optimised. The OnePlus 8 with model number GALILEI IN2025, Snapdragon 865 SoC, Android 10 and 8GB of RAM achieved 4275 single-core score and 12541 multi-core score. These scores are on par with Apple’s A13 Bionic chipset which we get to see on the latest iPhone 11 series.
The phone was spotted with 8GB of RAM, however, a recent report said the OnePlus 8 would also be available with 12GB of RAM. The OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7 arrived with 8GB of RAM, whereas the Pro models from 2019 featured up to 12GB of RAM.
OnePlus 8 Series to Launch Earlier than Expected
A recent report revealed that the OnePlus 8 series would arrive much earlier than expected. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro could be launched by March-end or early April and both the phones were also spotted on Amazon India’s affiliate page. The OnePlus 8 Lite, on the other hand, could be limited to the markets where 5G network is available. With the OnePlus 8 Lite, the company might be looking to join the affordable 5G smartphones race since there are very limited devices in that segment right now.
