The long wait is finally over as we get close to the official launch of OnePlus 2 smartphone today. Ahead of the major release, a new leak just popped up giving an early hands-on the yet-to-be released flagship along with interesting benchmark test results.
According to Techno Buffalo, OnePlus 2's impressive specs under the hood are not helping the "2016 flagship killer" beat this year's Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 in benchmark tests.
The leaked video, which was sourced from a Chinese source who goes by the name Eason Qin on YouTube, quickly grabbed attention of several internet users and publications. The OnePlus 2 smartphone boasts the latest Snapdragon 810 SoC paired with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, giving the handset a competitive edge against all major flagship smartphones in the market. The extra boost in the RAM doesn't seem to contribute much towards endearing benchmark results.
In the video, which is about 5 minutes in length, OnePlus 2 was shown running the reputed AnTuTu benchmark test. The final score on the benchmark app rested at 49,221 points, which is quite impressive. But on comparing with rivals such as Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9, OnePlus 2 benchmark score wasn't up to the mark, Techno Buffalo reports.
However, the AnTuTu score for OnePlus 2 did push the handset ahead of devices like Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Meizu MX4, the report added.
But the hands-on video shows more than OnePlus 2's performance. The physical home button, which is said to pack a fingerprint scanner faster than Apple's Touch ID, is pictured clearly alongside the metallic bezel and the latest Oxygen OS software.
Other specs confirmed for OnePlus 2 include a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with 2560 x 1440 pixels and 540ppi. The handset is said to get an impressive 13MP primary camera with laser auto-focus and f/2.0 aperture and 8MP front snapper with wide-angle lens. There's also an improved 3,300mAh battery, dual-SIM support, 4G LTE bandwidth and USB Type-C port.
