OnePlus 5 to be faster than Galaxy S8?

Even as leaks about OnePlus 5 continue to create buzz online, the latest benchmark leak has OnePlus fans excited. The first benchmark results have been spotted and they seem to indicate that the OnePlus 5 is going to be faster than Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S8.

According to leaked benchmark, Geekbench single-core score for OnePlus 5 stands at 1963 and the multi-core score stands at an impressive 6687. Samsung S8’s single-core performance score is 1978 while the multi-core score is 6375. OnePlus 5 with a score of 6687 for multi-core is clearly ahead of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 by quite a large margin.

Given that OnePlus 5 is powered by the same powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 that’s on the Galaxy S8, it looks quite strange that OnePlus 5 can outperform Samsung Galaxy S8 in the Geekbench score. However, the improved performance can be attributed to a number of factors, including larger capacity RAM and different version of Android Nougat 7.1. Also, Oxygen OS may have been further optimized by OnePlus.
