Two new devices with what could be model numbers from the OEM OPPO have emerged on Geekbench 4. They both have 4GB of RAM, run Android 10 and have a heretofore-unseen code-name associated with their processing platform: bengal. Could this, then, be a brand-new upcoming SoC?

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).

As if to reinforce this idea, both "new phones", the CPH2095 and CPH2127, have 4GB of RAM, but do at least run Android 10.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
