“The OPPO Poseidon smartphone will likely be a flagship smartphone from the brand with a loaded spec sheet”
OPPO’s last flagships, R17 and R17 Pro (review), were launched last year with a number of exciting technologies. The smartphones flaunted in-display fingerprint sensor, Super VOOC fast-charging, 25-megapixel selfie camera, and 8GB of RAM as their highlights. Now, the company seems to have started working on its next flagship. A mysterious smartphone has been spotted on the popular benchmarking website Geekbench, revealing some key highlights.
The Geekbench posting of the smartphone has it listed as Poseidon, which is likely to be the codename of the upcoming device. The listing also reveals that the phone will come flaunting some serious muscle as it is equipped with the “msmnile” chipset. Notably, Nile is the codename for the latest Qualcomm flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 855 SoC. However, the amount of RAM is not shown in the benchmark. The handset is also seen running the latest Android 9.0 Pie, presumably with the custom ColorOS running on top. The OPPO Poseidon managed to score 3,810 in the single-core test and 10,963 in the multi-core tests, which are impressive numbers.
Not much else is known about the OPPO Poseidon due to the limited information the benchmarking app reveals in its listings. However, it’s being speculated that this could be either the upcoming OPPO R19 or the second-generation Find X.
Speaking of R19, an alleged case of the smartphone was recently leaked by the popular tipster, Slashleaks. The leaked image revealed that the smartphone will come with triple camera module on the back. Further, the smartphone is tipped to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as selfie camera. We can expect OPPO to unveil the upcoming smartphone at the MWC 2019, slated to be held in February. We will bring you more information, whenever they turn up so stay tuned.
