There’s a new top-ranked Android smartphone in terms of Antutu Benchmark performance for September 2018. And, no, we’re not referring to the Google Pixel 3 or Huawei Mate 20 Pro or Mate 20 X, at least not yet.

The newly crowned top-scoring, top-performing device is the ASUS ROG Phone with an average score of 299,706 points. ASUS’ new gaming phone unseats the Xiaomi Black Shark, curiously another gaming-centric handset, which registered a median of 290,602 points in the same test.

What’s also interesting is that all 10 phones in the rankings use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. The different test results are indicative of the various memory configurations available for each device. Of course, more memory will almost always result in a higher score. The ASUS ROG Phone maxes out with 8GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

The OnePlus 6, Vivo NEX S, and Xiaomi Mi 8 round out the five highest-scoring models. If you’re curious as to how other flagship Android smartphones fared, check out the image below.

As for the ASUS ROG Phone, well, we’re not surprised it achieved such high benchmarks. It boasts a speed-binned 2.96GHz Snapdragon 845 with custom cooling to keep the processor running at peak speeds even during prolonged gaming. Most Snapdragon 845s are clocked at 2.8GHz.
