Move over, iPhone XS, as a new mobile benchmarking champion is (almost) here
This is the world’s first phone using Qualcomm’s state-of-the-art new SoC that its manufacturers expect to start shipping to early adopters... in China by the end of the month. Unsurprisingly, the commercial-ready handset managed to hit a new mobile performance record of over 371,000 points, completely obliterating the likes of the Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20 X.
Those are currently the top three (available) Android devices, ranked by AnTuTu with total scores of between 300,000 and 307,000 points, while the iPhone XS typically scores around the 356,000 mark.
While the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is unlikely to become widely available in the US or across Europe anytime soon (or ever), this mouth-watering performance evaluation suggests other Snapdragon 855 devices could also take on the iPhone XS. We’re talking the Galaxy S10 (or at least its US-bound variants), several Xiaomi flagships, the next big thing from OnePlus, Sony’s Xperia XZ4, and many, many more.
By the way, the Xperia XZ4 purportedly scored even higher in AnTuTu a little while ago, but the benchmarking authority never confirmed the authenticity of that particular result. This one is 100 percent legit, mind you, and it could be boosted further by a Lenovo Z5 Pro GT configuration with more than 8GB RAM.
