The global rankings of best-performing Android smartphones in August 2020 are finally out, a few days after Antutu Benchmark revealed the lists for devices released in China.

New models topped the charts this time, with the OnePlus Nord ruling the midrange category and the ASUS ROG Phone 3 taking the crown in the flagship space.

Top 10: Midrange Android smartphones

While the Chinese mid-level ranking last month was dominated by Kirin-powered units from Huawei and Honor, this list was full of handsets using Qualcomm’s processors. Seven of the 10, in particular.

The top two — OnePlus Nord and Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G — have Snapdragon 765G system-on-chips inside. Sixth to ninth placers Realme 6 Pro, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9S, and OPPO Reno 4 4G all carry Snapdragon 720G. Occupying the 10th spot was the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro, which is powered by Snapdragon 730G.

Only the Huawei Nova 7i with Kirin 810 and Realme 6 and Redmi Note 8 Pro with MediaTek Helio G90T are not using Qualcomm SoCs.

Top 10: Flagship Android smartphones

Just like its predecessor, the ASUS ROG Phone 3 flexed its muscles this time around, thanks to a slightly better Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. We can attest to how powerful the device is, as can be seen here: Watch: We play 16 games on the ASUS ROG Phone 3 gaming phone.

The other six flagship handsets on Antutu’s August list have Qualcomm chipsets, too. We’re talking about second to seventh placers OnePlus 8 Pro, OPPO Find X2 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, Redmi K30 Pro, POCO F2 Pro, and Mi 10. Take note that the Samsung Galaxy unit mentioned here is the version with Snapdragon 865 Plus.

Exynos 990-powered Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, and Galaxy S20 Plus 5G rounded out the top 10.
