Alleged Huawei Mate 20 with Kirin 980 chipset on deck sets a new AnTuTu record

Huawei Mate 20 sets a new record on AnTuTu
Huawei just recently launched its latest flagships, the P20 , P20 Pro, and the super-premium P20 Pro Porsche Design, but it seems that the grand Chinese company is already prepping its next emboldening move. Word on the street is the successor to last year's Huawei Mate 10 just got benchmarked on popular synthetic benchmark app AnTuTu.

It would seem that the Huawei Mate 20, which is most likely coming this autumn, has reportedly scored a truly mind-boggling score of 356,918 points, which sets it ahead of just about any device right now. This performance jump could potentially be linked to Huawei's rumored upcoming in-house chipset, the Kirin 980. 

Although the benchmark doesn't reveal any facts about the chip that's powering the device, rumors tell us it will likely be a 7nm quad-core endeavor comprising Cortex-A75 cores in a custom configuration and a much-improved 2nd-gen NPU (neural processing unit), which will take on the AI-related tasks. Graphics will be dealt with by a GPU that's said to be much more powerful than the current performer ticking inside Huawei's Kirin 970 chip, which can be found inside the Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, P20, and P20 Pro.

The Mate 20 will likely reiterate the intriguing triple-camera setup found on the P20 Pro which is already winning it accolades. Although Huawei's devices have a hard time existing on the US market, the company's definitely striving to outwit the market leaders, and this makes the scene all the more interesting.
