Samsung’s own Galaxy S10 chip gets benchmarked for the first time Now we have an AnTuTu benchmark leak for the Exynos 9820 processor that Samsung announced a few weeks ago, which will power some Galaxy S10 versions next year. However, the 9820’s score is significantly lower than the 8150. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The Exynos 9820 scored 325076, which sounds like a lot, but that’s still almost 40000 points lower than the Snapdragon 8150, but also than the iPhone XS’s AnTuTuscore.

On-stage mistake means OnePlus won't have the first Snapdragon 855 phone

OnePlus was thrust into the limelight earlier this week when CEO Pete Lau announced on-stage that one of its 2019 flagship phones would be the first device to launch with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset. As it turns out, what seemed like a major coup for the upstart hardware maker was actually a huge mistake.

Chinese versions of the slide deck Pete Lau used to make the announcement at Qualcomm's Tech Summit in Hawaii said that the phone in question would be "among the first" smartphones to use the 855 — the problem is, the slides used for the presentation in Hawaii definitively said it would be the first. Needless to say, that's a serious blunder for a company enjoying a moment under the spotlight, not to mention a disappointment to the many fans who took that slide at face value.

Following the Porsche Designs versions of the Huawei P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro, Oppo’s Find X Lamborghini edition, we’re not going to get a McLaren 6T phone. Yes, that’s probably a maxed out OnePlus 6T that will sport significant McLaren branding. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took the stage at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Tech Summit today to announce that OnePlus will be the first to release a 5G But much like Samsung, which promised a 5G phone coming to AT& T and Verizon sometime next year, OnePlus ’ announcement is decidedly light on

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Tech Summit 2018 has been going on this week. Today, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took the stage to talk about their relationship with Qualcomm. He also announced that they will have the first flagship smartphone to feature the Snapdragon 855 .

A OnePlus spokesperson confirmed the mistake to Engadget, and said that the person who wrote the slide was not a native English speaker. As a result, our original report was mistaken (we've since updated the story), but the issues here run deep. On multiple occasions on Wednesday — including in an interview conducted with CEO Pete Lau — OnePlus spokespeople confirmed to Engadget that its phone would indeed be the first device with a Snapdragon 855 chipset.

"We appreciate the opportunity to clarify that we will be one of the first to have access to, and use, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, and apologise for the miscommunication," a spokesperson said in a statement.

The confusion appears to center around the use of the word "feature" — some inside apparently believed that by saying the phone in question would be the "first to feature" the 855, it was actually saying that the company was the first to get access to the chipset from Qualcomm. While that may be true, the language used in the slide presented to an international audience of journalists clearly suggested otherwise. The confusion ran so deep that members of the OnePlus social media team trumpeted the announcement on Twitter, apparently unaware of the miscommunication.

Unfortunately, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or 8150 isn' t commercially available just yet. It is surely fast but smartphones released till the end of 2018 might have SDM845 as the top-notched SoC although you can expect SDM 855 in the upcoming NO the Oneplus 6 has the Snapdragon 845 chipset.

What are the upcoming Snapdragon 855 phones ? While nothing is official at this time, it is safe to say that LG, Sony, Moto, Nokia, and OnePlus are all brands known for using Qualcomm Snapdragon However, the first phone to include both the Snapdragon 855 and 5G connectivity may come from

At least Qualcomm doesn't appear to be concerned about the mistake. When asked for comment, a spokesperson told Engadget that "it's on not us to claim which partner is going to be first to do anything." Even with that being the case, the very public nature of the error also calls into question OnePlus's overall maturity as a company.

OnePlus shipped its first smartphone in 2014, and has succeeded in growing a devoted base of users around the world, but the progress hasn't come without its perils: The credit card details of up to 40,000 OnePlus users were intercepted between November 2017 and January 2018, and before that, the company inadvertently left a backdoor open in certain devices that allowed root access to the device without having to unlock its bootloader first. And less than a month before that, the company drew the ire of users and privacy advocates when it was revealed that OnePlus devices relayed personally identifiable device information to the company without specific user permission.

OnePlus's on-stage mistake is one of the company's more public (and likely most embarrassing) errors, but it's only one of a handful of notable missteps made in the past two years. As OnePlus's profile continues to rise, we can only hope that it more consistently tries to address issues like these (and others) before they begin to seriously impact the company's business.

OnePlus 5G phone will launch by May, but it’s not the OnePlus 7.
OnePlus earlier this week launched a OnePlus 6T variation that’s somehow even faster than the top of the line 6T model unveiled a few weeks ago. The McLaren Edition comes with 10GB of RAM under the hood, as well as faster battery charging technology. But those features will cost you a few extra bucks compared with the regular OnePlus 6T. In a few months, OnePlus will launch a brand new smartphone, one that should be even faster than 2018 models both when it comes to processing powers and data transmission.
