The home grown Kirin 950 chipset, recently unveiled by Huawei, is under the hood, with a big.LITTLE octa-core CPU and the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of native storage. Android 6.0 is pre-installed.
The P9 Max scored an impressive 73,759 on the AnTuTu benchmark test. The 3D graphics score was 16,822. Both scores were below those of the Meizu Pro 5. The latter had an overall score of 76,244, and a 3D graphics score of 23,393. That handset is powered by the Exynos 7420, which also features an octa-core CPU and has the Mali T-760 MP8 GPU.
Next stop should be a TENAA certification, which we are looking forward to because of the usual photographs, and the dissemination of the complete specs sheet.
Thanks for the tip!
