Potential new OPPO phones with an interesting code-name leak onto Geekbench
A pair of new phones from OPPO with what looks like a new SoC have leaked onto Geekbench 4. This impression is mostly built on the novel code-name placed in the "motherboard" field by this testing system. It is bengal, a moniker seldom seen on mobile benchmarks thus far.
Given this new rumor, it might be tempting to speculate that this is the first of OPPO's long-anticipated in-house series of chipsets. However, a little more digging on Geekbench reveals that bengal actually belongs to Qualcomm. It is clocked at 1.8GHz and identifies as an "ARM implementer 81 architecture 8 variant 10 part 2048 revision 2" component.
These exact properties have also been exhibited by the Snapdragon 665 processor on Geekbench. This may put the new platform (should it indeed be one as currently rumored) as a successor to the silicon that powers devices such as the OPPO A9 (2020).
