The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 and, as the company teased yesterday, the Pro model will have fancy 5-layer “gaming-grade” cooling. The phones will be unveiled next week, but Tech Maniacs managed to get their hands on a unit and run a benchmark.
The OnePlus 9 Pro scored just over 660,000 points on AnTuTu. Keep in mind that pre-release software can be all kinds of wonky, so we’re not going to start worrying yet. But if final units post similar results, then we will start to worry.
You can check out the latest AnTuTu ranking, Snapdragon 888-powered phones dominate the field. However, they score in the low 700,000 or high 600,000. Even the Redmi K40 with the Snapdragon 870 – a spruced up version of last year’s chip – gets 668,000 on average.
But, again, this test was run on a pre-release unit, so the score may not be representative. If anything, that 41ºC temperature looks encouraging – maybe that “gaming-grade” cooling is doing its job.
Anyway, let’s put benchmarking out of our minds for now and look at the new photos that OnePlus posted from the 9-series Hasselblad camera. In case you missed them, check out the previous batch of photos too.
