The initial Geekbench scores for the OnePlus 6 (running final software) was caught less than 12 hours ago. Now, GeekBench has benchmarked 8GB RAM model of the ASUS Zenfone 5z as ASUS_Z01RD. This version of ASUS Zenfone 5z overtakes OnePlus 6 with its initial firmware. Zenfone 5z had to go on sale in June, there are zero chances that this is a Final version of the firmware.
The Geekbench score for the Zenfone 5z reached 2471 in Single-core and a whopping 9209 in Multi-core. This is much higher than the OnePlus 6 (SC: 2402 and MC: 8931) specially in-terms of the Multi-core performance.
The A11 Bionic in the iPhone X reaches the 10000+ mark almost everytime. But, in the world of Android Smartphones, a Multi-core score (with the Snapdragon 845) of 9209 is actually pretty amazing.
The OnePlus 6 is going to be unveiled on May 16th in London & reach other countries eventually within a couple of days. The Zenfone 5z will come out sometime in June. So, if ASUS actually keeps the pricing of the Zenfone 5z (ASUS announced its price for 549 Euros & projection for the US is $500) lower compared to the OnePlus 6. At that price segment, ASUS might turn the market towards themselves. Is it really going to happen? Well, let’s wait for both of these devices to come out.
