GSMArena has obtained screenshots of OnePlus 5's GeekBench scores from a "very credible source." The OnePlus 5 will reportedly be using the same Snapdragon 835 processor that runs on the available Galaxy S8. According to the leaked screenshots, the OnePlus 5 scored 1963 points in single-core tests and an impressive 6687 points in multi-core tests.
