AnTuTu says that the Kirin 950-based Huawei Mate 8 scores 79k points in its mobile benchmark

AnTuTu, the company behind the popular smartphone benchmark tool with the same name, has just confirmed the previously-leaked specs of the upcoming Huawei Mate 8. According to AnTuTu, the Huawei Mate 8 scores near to 80k points in the browser, which indicates a level of processing power above what current-gen flagships have to offer.

Huawei is up to a lot these days. At the moment, Huawei is the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, as well the largest in China, and the new Google Nexus 6P is likely to further the company's advance into Western markets. 

On the hardware side, the company has recently unveiled the Kirin 950, a smartphone SoC that promises to compete against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890 in the high-end segment of the market. Given the context, we're particularly interested in the Huawei's next move, which is the impending launch of the Huawei Mate 8, one that the company has teased for November 26th.

Now that AnTuTu has confirmed the previous leaks, we're fairly confident that the Huawei Mate 8 will come with 6-inch display running a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels pixels, a Kirin 950 chip, a 16MP primary camera, and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front. In the memory department, it looks like the phone will be offered with either 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM or 32GB of internal storage and 3GB of RAM. On the software side, the Mate 8 will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. 

Moving past the specs, AnTuTu has also shared a benchmark result for the Huawei Mate 8, listing a score of 79,131 points for the upcoming handset. The Kirin 950 integrates a CPU with four ARM Cortex-A72 cores, as well as an ARM Mali-T880 GPU. Current-gen Android flagships, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 series, the Sony Xperia Z5, or the HTC One M9 all score score lower than the Huawei Mate 8.

1080 is still great for a smartphone. QHD kills framerates alot, let alone phone overheating and bad battery life!!

We Need Game Bench And Geekbench Scores Cause They Tell The True Story About Which Soc Has The Best CPU And GPU, Also Which Company Optimizes Their Phones The Best.

Well some people including Linus Torvalds doesn't like Geekbench a lot. In his own words: "Geekbench is SH*T"

I think it will reach over 90k or maybe 10k considering Exynos 7420 on Meizu pro 5 already scored 74k on Antutu.

No average 7420 score is 69K Antutu lists it in their app.

That's average score for S6/Note5. Meizu Pro 5 with 7420 scores around 78k.

Doesn't matter mate; Antutu is a useless benchmark.

Bm888 also consider that Mate 8 has a 1080P display which makes a lot of difference to the score :) Mongoose will be a beast
