OPPO is working on a real flagship smartphone for 2019.
A device with a codename OPPO Poseidon has been spotted on GeekBench. And from what it looks like, this is on a different level from their current flagship offering — the OPPO R17 Pro.
The Poseidon feels more like a follow-up to the OPPO Find X, or possibly a new line-up of high-end devices from the Chinese brand.
As per the GeekBench listing, the OPPO Poseidon will feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, the successor to the Snapdragon 845 that is found on the Find X.
The device had a single-core score of 3,810 and 10,963 for the multi-core department. That’s identical to the score that the rumored Xiaomi Black Shark Skywalker got on the same benchmark app.
With the Snapdragon 855 chipset on board, we shall also expect this device to come with 5G connectivity. That is if OPPO decided to include the standalone Snapdragon X50 5G modem on this device.
Moreover, the GeekBench listing also suggests that it will run on Android 9 Pie. But other than that, there are no more concrete details about this device.
If we were to speculate, there’s a chance that this is the smartphone that OPPO is expected to reveal on January 16. As per our previous report, OPPO is finally launching a smartphone with the 10x lossless zoom technology that they showcased in MWC back in 2017.
But until then, we can never know for sure. So make sure you stay tuned for more updates.
