Since the last two days, we have all noticed a OnePlus 5T Benchmarking result. We even wrote a post regarding the GFXBench spec sheet. But there was no actual benchmark of the OnePlus 5T on the GFXBench website.
Let’s take a look at the screenshot circulating as a benchmark result.This alleged benchmark image was leaked on the web. After this confusion, we sent an email for an official confirmation, and they replied soon, confirming that the image was fake.
The benchmark pictures can be easily modified with commonly available editing software. However, the modification was done based on the rumor that the OnePlus 5T will have an upgraded front camera. But they didn’t update the pixel (4608 x 3456) resolution.
