Mate 20 benchmarked again, wipes the Android floor with the best score so far
Huawei is gearing up to unveil the first Android phones with a processor built on the newest 7nm node - the Mate 20 and its Pro version. The Kirin 980 chipset was already tested on Geekbench, revealing record scores for an Android handset, but giving way to Apple's own 7nm silicon, the new A12 Bionic.
When it comes to the system-wide AnTuTu test, the Mate 20 shows similar performance - best on Android, and a tad lower than what, say, the iPhone XS Max gets.
Let's not forget that the LYA-L29 model is likely not with a finished software and the scores might even out in the end. We'll be really curious to test what the iPhone XR scores, though, as it has the same A12 Bionic processor, but a much less resolute display.
The Kirin 980 processor comes with its own neural processing unit for "AI" (what else) and we can't wait to put it to the test. We'll be at the Mate 20 and 30 Pro announcement event next week in London, and we'll try to run some benchies for your viewing pleasure.
