Antutu has posted its latest rankings of premium, sub-flagship, and midrange Android smartphones released in China that performed well on its platform.
And what do the popular benchmark app’s lists tell us? That the phones that topped two of the categories in May remained chart-toppers in June. The Black Shark 5 Pro with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 16GB RAM, and 512GB of storage and the iQOO Z5 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, 12GB RAM, and 256GB of storage ruled the flagship and midrange spaces, respectively.
Unsurprisingly, last month’s high-end category were populated by the American chipmaker’s best chipset after the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. Eight of the 10 devices on the list are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the rest uses MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 processor. Black Shark’s top-of-the-line model — which, we’d like to point out, will become available in the Philippines tomorrow, July 2 — were followed by two other gaming phones, the RedMagic 7 Pro and the Lenovo Legion Y90. All three each had an average Antutu benchmark score above 1 million.
In June, the OPPO Reno8 Pro Plus dethroned the Vivo S15 Pro in the sub-flagship category with an average of 822,915 points. Notice that the first nine Android handsets on the list below are equipped with either a Dimensity 8100 Max or Dimensity 8100 SoC. The lone non-MediaTek-based unit was 10th placer Vivo S15 with Snapdragon 870.
The midrange group was headed by the iQOO Z5, which achieved a high Antutu benchmark score of 577,956. Smartphones with Qualcomm processors once again dominated this space, with the chip manufacturer’s Snapdragon 778G, Snapdragon 778G Plus, and Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 figuring in nine of the 10 best-performing devices here.
