Or so alleged screenshots of its benchmark score on Antutu version 7 show.
The Huawei Mate 20 — or whatever its name will be — is not expected to launch until the last quarter this year; its predecessor, the HiSilicon Kirin 970-powered Mate 10, was unveiled in October 2017. But someone with access to the still-unannounced phone supposedly benchmarked it already.
Seen below are the purported screen grabs that showed up on China’s Weibo microblogging service.
The Huawei Mate 20 got a whopping 356,918 points — the highest ever on Antutu and the first score to go beyond 300,000. The test is synthetic, of course. Nevertheless, the rating is still impressive if true.
By comparison, the respective scores of the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are “only” in the lower-200,000 mark. Keep in mind that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ — considered to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest, smartphones today — hovers in the mid-200,000.
The Huawei Mate 20 is believed to use Kirin 980, which is built through TSMC [Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Limited]’s 7nm chipset process. The chip supposedly features Cortex-A75 high-performance processor cores, a dedicated second-generation neural-processing unit or NPU, and a more powerful GPU.
The rumor mill also says the Mate 20 will sport the Leica-branded triple-rear-camera system found on the Huawei P20 Pro and an under-display fingerprint sensor seen on the Porsche Mate Huawei Mate RS.
