Did the Huawei P9 just tally an impressive multi-core score on Geekbench?
As it turns out, an unknown Huawei handset has just been benchmarked by Geekbench. With the Kirin 950 chipset (Hi 3650) under the hood, 4GB of RAM and Android 6.0 listed, this could very well be the Huawei P9. Racking up a multi-core score of 7313, the device topped the 7037 multi-core score tallied on Geekbench by a mystery device running MediaTek's Helio X20 chipset. The latter comes with a deca-core CPU.
Huawei is the third largest global manufacturer of smartphones after Samsung and Apple. During the third quarter of 2015, Gartner measured the company's year-over-year gain in smartphone shipments at 71%, blowing away its rivals. Last year, the company released its first Nexus handset (the well received Nexus 6P) and earlier this month it had the global launch of the high-end Huawei Mate 8. The latter, which is coming to the U.S., scored an amazing 94,250 on AnTuTu.
