A new Snapdragon 855 OPPO phone shows up on Geekbench 5
Some recent listings on Geekbench 5 suggests that the OEM OPPO has a new phone with a flagship SoC on the way. Its title include the model number PCCT30, which does not match any product on sale at the moment. The results show it is powered by the "msmnile" (or the Snapdragon 855, in other words) and 8GB of RAM. Some Chinese leaks indicate that this phone may be an upcoming 5G device from the manufacturer in question.
It is also speculated that the PCCT30 will join the Reno series on its launch. This would make it a second generation of 5G options in this relatively new line. Therefore, with its apparent specs, this phone is shaping up to be pretty powerful. On the other hand, it is also down on Geekbench as running Android 9.0 (Pie), which is mildly disappointing in a late-2019 premium device.
Geekbench 5 shows that the PCCT30 scores 652 and 2721 in single- and multi-core terms respectively at best. This sounds encouraging, until one realizes that other, older phones running on the same processor have done better in one metric or other (or both) in the recent past. They include the OnePlus 7 Pro and the US-variant Samsung Galaxy S10.
So far, the OPPO PCCT30 lacks a launch date. In addition, there is little more concrete details on this putative device. However, it is rumored to ship with an FHD+ AMOLED screen of 6.55 inches in diameter, a 256GB storage option and triple cameras with a 48MP main shooter.
