The OnePlus 5 might be releasing multiple variants including a Lite model if the recent Geekbench 4 scores are anything to go by. Looking at the leaked scores over at the benchmark site, the flagship may have multiple variants.
According to Geekbench, OnePlus A5000 is listed with 4GB of RAM, which is less than what is said to come with the OnePlus 5. The more information is that the smartphone in these test scores is said to be running with Android Marshmallow software, as well as having a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.
It's already known that the OnePlus 5 might come with a Snapdragon 835 SoC as the company has already confirmed this particular piece of hardware. It is likely that a Snapdragon 820 model with 4GB of RAM and an older version of Android than is currently running on the OnePlus 3T could have simply been a test model.
What's also possible is that this may be a scaled down version of the OnePlus 5 which would have older specs to allow for a lower price point. Though if that is the case it's also possible that the Android OS version might at least be up to date by the time of release, as reported by Android Headlines.
Another thing to consider is that while this may be a Lite version of the OnePlus 5, all the screenshots of Geekbench show the same exact model but varying scores for each test. With that, the scores in all five tests are pretty consistent that may speak volumes about OnePlus' efforts in the tuning department when it comes to building a smartphone and developing the software to where it's just right.
OnePlus hasn't done a scaled-down smartphone since it launched the OnePlus X, though that doesn't mean that there won't be a Lite model of its next flagship. On a different note, the OnePlus 5 is expected to reveal on June 20 instead of June 15. A new image that surfaced on Weibo has the OnePlus logo and circle marked on June 20.
