OnePlus is a sub-brand that's owned by Oppo, but the parent company does not exactly interfere in many of its operations. As a result, the online only OEM has made a name for its self in the recent years for delivering "flagship killer" smartphones that have astounding price-to-performance ratio. Although they are not as "cheap" anymore as they once were (unless you consider $439 to be cheap of course), the OnePlus 3T was still launched at almost half the price of the Galaxy S7 Edge, with arguably better hardware in some areas!




It looks like the OnePlus 5 is all set to continue its dominance over Android smartphones just like the OnePlus 3T did last year, when it comes to fast performance and high benchmark scores. Check out the benchmarks score above to see what we are talking about. Not to anyone's surprise, the iPhone 7 Plus continues to remain the undisputed king of single-core performance on Geekbench, but the upcoming OnePlus 5 has actually beaten the Galaxy S8+ quite convincingly in terms of multi-core performance! The S8+ did manage to hold the second position just after the iPhone 7 Plus though, beating the OnePlus 5 with just 15 points.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ don't have much competition right now as they are the only two handsets right now with the latest Qualcomm (or Exynos) Snapdragon flagship chip inside. The LG G6 is probably its closest competitor yet, but the last-gen SD 821 chip makes the LG handset fall behind. However, that scene is about to change very soon as Xiaomi gets ready to launch their own flagship handsets next week in China, with the SD 835 inside. Rumors have been predicting the specs for the Chinese handset for a long time now, but some of it has just been confirmed by a leaked GeekBench test run result. Check the screenshot below and the specs over here to get a feel of things.



Unfortunately, there's currently no news regarding when Xiaomi is going to launch the mi 6 and the Mi 6 Plus outside China. Going by its track record though, it might be a few months before that happens. Nevertheless, what we have seen so far both in terms of specs and leaked pictures, do look very impressive. Hopefully, Xiaomi will be able to bring the two handsets in other countries myuch faster this time around.

Nokia might have been out of the smartphone business for a few years now, but there are still plenty of us who have a soft spot in our hearts for the once great Finnish ruler of the bygone phone world. We cannot help but feel a tinge of nostalgia and quite a bit of excitement each time a rumor or a leak shows us that Nokia is coming back into the business. However, it is almost certain now that Nokia is indeed coming back with a few Android smartphones and tablets in the last quarter of 2016.



The Nokia branding will be continuing under HMD, which is constituted largely with major ex-Nokia employees. As we have now officially entered the last quarter of the year, a snapshot of the Geekbench test result is showing us the performance of a certain "Nokia D1C." The handset scores decently in all the five trials with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor (1.4GHz), Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM, running on Android Nougat 7.0 apparently. We are sure that there will also be higher-end devices, but for now, the fact that Nokia is making a comeback into the business is quite exciting in itself. We will keep you informed about this as more news pops up.

Samsung is on its way to launch a high-end Galaxy A series smartphone, the Galaxy A9, which also has been prone to several rumours. The device found its way to many online forums in the past few weeks disclosing its specifications. Now, GeekBench has managed to leak the device and some of the details can be confirmed now.


The SM-A9000, which will most likely be released as the Galaxy A9, will be powered with Snapdragon 620 (MSM8976) SoC. This will make it the first smartphone to be powered by this chipset. The Snapdragon 620 will have four Cortex-A53 CPU cores, four Cortex-A72 CPU cores, Adreno 510 GPU, and an integrated Cat. 7 LTE radio.


The device will come pre-packaged with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and feature a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080p which also adds up to 401 ppi. It will also be backed by 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel primary snapper (with HDR and autofocus), and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. Connectivity is par with other similar devices which includes GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE. The only thing still unknown to us is the battery capacity. Samsung's official website has listed December 1 as launch date for the Galaxy A9. That makes it quite believable.

The SM-N930V has now surfaced on the internet as the smartphone's Geekbench results have just been revealed. In case you didn't know, the N930 is the model number of the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 and the V at the end stands for Verizon, as always. The results reveal a few things, but the most significant and slightly disappointing fact which it unveils is the SoC of the upcoming device. It seems like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be using the same Qualcomm SD 820 chipset as the Galaxy S7, and NOT the rumoured 821/823 chipset. The device also has just 4GB of RAM, instead of 6GB, which it is largely expected to have on release.


Now, there are two theories about the disappointing CPU and RAM seen here. The first theory suggests that this is just a test unit which is being used to test out the networks on Verizon and the final version will sport the SD 821/823 SoC and 6GB of RAM. The second theory states that there will be both 4GB versions with the Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB versions with the enhanced processing power. We will just have to wait to find out for sure when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is released on August 2.

Earlier, Evan Blass (@evleaks) had tweeted about how the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are going to be released on February 21 at the Samsung Unpacked 2016 and now we have more confirmation about the S7 Edge as it goes through Geekbench for a run. As evident in the screenshot, the SM-G935F model number confirms that this is the international Exynos 8890 version of the Galaxy S7 Edge that we are seeing here. The models released in USA and China will sport Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipsets instead of the Exynos 8890.



While the single-core score of 1363 and the multi-core score of 4951 are impressive, it is not in the same league as that of its Snapdragon 820 driven counterpart which scored 2456 and 5423 respectively for single-core and multi-core. If you are not reading this in the US or China, this might disappoint you a little, but we urge you not to invest too deeply into these results. While in their testing phase, all prototypes are made to run through different tests at different clock speeds. What this means is that the scores could very well be a result of underclocking.


As expected, the screenshot confirms that the Galaxy S7 will come with Android 6.0.1 out of the box and will be aided in its multitasking endeavours by 4GB of RAM. We will keep you posted with the latest updates and rumors as they happen.

We knew that the Galaxy Xcover 4 was coming and now some of its specifications have been revealed by GeekBench. In case you are wondering why we think this is the Xcover 4, notice that the smartphone here sports the model number Samsung SM-G930F, while the Xcover 3 had the model number SM-G388F. Apart from the few specs which we can be picked up from the screenshot, it is expected that the device will also sport a rugged shock-resistant body and IP67 water-resistance rating, just like its predecessor. Also take a look at the earlier leak where the Xcover 4 made its first unofficial appearance at the Wi-Fi Alliance database.



Questions regarding whether or not the device will feature a bigger display remains unanswered at this point. The low-powered quad core processor which we are seeing here is probably a budget-end Exynos chip. There's also 512MB more RAM on this device, as compared to the Xcover 3 Value Edition which had 1.5GB of RAM to boot. The good thing is that both the leaks have confirmed that the phone will come with Android Nougat right out of the box.


If you have any version of the old Xcover 3, feel free to check our firmware section for new updates for the device.

Benchmark results may not always represent real world performance of a particular chip, but they are almost certainly the most popular competitive platforms for smartphone enthusiasts to test out which phone is in which position in the hierarchy. As things have turned out, we now have test results from a GeekBench run of the Galaxy S8. Before you start wondering about which version was tested, let us assure you that both versions were part of the run!



The Exynos 8895 is at the top with a single-core score of 1,978 and a multi-core score of 6,375. The Samsung chip has once again beaten the Qualcomm flagship chip of 2017, the Snapdragon 835. The SD 835 within the S8+, managed to score 1,929 and 6,084 on single-core and multi-core tests respectively. As you can see, both scores were marginally but prominently lower than the ones scored by the Exynos 8895. The Kirin 960 is also in the second place as it loses out to the SD 835 on the single core with a score of 1898, but beats the Qualcomm SoC in the multi-core test with a score of 6,112. Check the screenshot from reddit for more details.

We have a real treat for you today as all major specs regarding the Galaxy A7 (2018) has been revealed, along with a Geekbench score that shows off the Samsung Exynos 7885's processing power as well. Check out the screenshot above and the small spec sheet below to know more.


Revealed Specs


Model Number: SM-A730F

Display: 1080p Infinity Display (Super AMOLED)

SoC: Exynos 7885/Snapdragon 660

6GB of RAM

Android Nougat 7.1.1 Nougat /Android 8.0 Oreo


Geekbench Score


1486 - Single-core

4145 - Multi-core



Although the designs seen previously does indicate that the A7 (2017) will sport an Infinity display as seen only on the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Note 8 so far, we are not sure whether or not it's something that you can bank on. After all, the Infinity display on all these devices has so far been curved and the chances of Samsung introducing curved displays to even their mid-rangers are somewhat unlikely. Even if they do decide to go with a flat, borderless display, that would be something totally new and we have not yet heard of any such production plans! Nevertheless, the A7 (2018) should be a decently powerful handset in the mid-range segment, especially given that it will carry the new chip and 6 gigs of RAM.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are out and about, so that leaves us looking forward to rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. While the release is still months away, that doesn't mean we have not been hearing rumors about it already. Today however, what we have for you is more than just a rumor, because it really is about the Galaxy Note 9, which has made yet another appearance on the Geekbench benchmarking app, confirming the previously seen CPU (Snapdragon 845) and OS (Android 8.1.0).


What is more revealing is the leak by famous Leakster Ice Universe which stated that the Note 9 will actually be 2mm shorter than the current gen Note 8. The shorter height means that the Note 9 will have less bezel than the Note 8 and that is to be expected, given that the S9 and S9+ already has smaller bezels than their predecessors as well.


The image you see here is actually a render supplied by the leakster himself and not an official one mind you. Nevertheless, it is more than likely that we will see something very close to this design when the Note 9 is launched in August.

If you are waiting for the iPhone 7 that will be unveiled on September 7, we have good news for you as the new Apple A10 chip inside the iPhone 7 is truly a beast according to the latest Geekbench results. In case you have been paying attention, you probably know that we have already seen a screenshot of the iPhone running through Geekbench version 3 in July. The difference between that previous result and this one is encouraging as the upcoming iPhone seems to have gained almost 10% more in terms of performance in the latest results. However, since this is Geekbench version 4 that the latest result is showcasing, the difference cannot be exactly credited as a 10% boost over the previous result as that data was based on Geekbench 3.


The single-core score is a whopping 3379, while the multi-core score is an impressive 5495 and irrespective of the benchmark's version that's quite remarkable. If you are wondering how these scores fare against Android flagship devices like the "explosive" Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the scores are quite competitive and even better at times. The Note 7 SD 820 version had scored around 1900 and 5500 for the single-core and multi-core respectively, while the Note 7 Exynos 8890 version had scored around 2081 and 6500 for the single-core and multi-core respectively. As you can see, the competition is close when it comes to the multi-core performance, but the A10 chip wins comfortably when it comes to single core performance.

In a somewhat dismal presentation where certain features of the iPhone X failed on camera, Apple finally revealed the much awaited iPhone X to the world on September 12. While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were also launched on the same day, it would be cruel but safe to say that nobody really cares about them that much in light of the iPhone X. While the new poster boy for Apple is full of controversial and downright bizarre design choices, there is no doubt that when it comes to raw power, it's a beast and now we will take a look at the Geekbench scores revealed to us by ValueWalk to see just how powerful it really is in comparison to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.



As you can see from the screenshot above, the iPhone X absolutely mops the floor with the S8 and the Note 8 in both single core and multi-core performance. Granted that the real world difference in performance will hardly be noticeable by users, it doesn't take away from the fact that the A11 chip is way ahead of anything that Samsung, Qualcomm or any other Android chip manufacturer might have up their sleeves anytime soon!

It seems that the much awaited update to Android Nougat 7.0 for the Galaxy S6 isn't as far away as it was previously thought. A recent score on the Geekbench 4.0.3 benchmarking app clearly shows the Galaxy S6 running on Android 7.0 Nougat. Samsung usually tests out its devices with the latest Android OS on popular benchmarking apps, prior to releasing the final version. Therefore, the final build might be ready to roll out sooner than we thought.



Although the phone is almost two years old now, the scores are still pretty impressive at 1369 for Single-Core and 4577 for Multi-Core. They are in fact, even higher than what we are used to seeing on the Android Marshmallow versions. Then again, the entire thing could be fake as the Nougat update is still at its beta stage even on the S7 and S7 Edge.



The results were reportedly found on GFXBench, which seems to have removed the report from their database since then. Check out the screenshots, as published by GalaxyClub to take a look at what we are talking about here.
