The OnePlus 6T is set to arrive on October 30 at simultaneous events in New York and India. Naturally, there are plenty of last-minute leaks going around revealing every single thing there is to know about the phone.

One of them is a new report by WinFuture which has uncovered the Geekbench listing of the OnePlus 6T. It seems the company tried to hide the handset under the name “FS FS P8801.” The ruse has gone unnoticed for months now, with the first entries for the device dating back to August.

OnePlus 6T Geekbench Score

This isn’t new for OnePlus. Even the OnePlus 6 was known as the “NS NS P7819” on Geekbench. The OnePlus 6T appears to have scored 2510 in its single-core test and 8639 in its multi-core one. It’s using the same Snapdragon 845 processor as its predecessor, so the numbers haven’t changed much.

Even the same 8GB of RAM can be spotted inside. One major shift is the native support for Android 9.0 Pie instead of Oreo. The OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T both ran on Nougat, so it was expected that the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T would therefore run on Oreo. The former does, but it looks like the latter’s a step ahead.

OnePlus has already gone ahead and discussed what major software changes it’s making in an official forum post discussing the future of OxygenOS and the OnePlus 6T. The company is promising an all-new Android Pie-based UI to play around with and fresh gesture navigations.

For instance, long-pressing on the power button will invoke the Google Assistant and swiping right along the bottom of the screen will bring up recently used apps. OnePlus has also improved the camera behind the scenes, so the smartphone should take better photos with the same dual camera setup.
