The upcoming Huawei Mate 20 is expected to be a beastly device and the latest leak seems to confirm it, showing unprecedented benchmark scores that crush the iPhone X and any other smartphone so far.
Huawei is expected to introduce its next flagship smartphone, the Mate 20, sometime this fall. The company has been launching increasingly powerful flagships competing at the top end of the smartphone market, and the next generation should be better than all.
Last year, the Huawei Mate 10 was the first one to pack the company's Kirin 970 processor under the hood. The subsequent Huawei P20 pair took things up a notch, especially in the camera department, but retained the same Kirin 970 chipset.
Huawei Mate 20 With Kirin 980 Benchmark Score
This year's Huawei Mate 20, however, is expected to boast Kirin 980 processor, which should deliver significantly more horsepower and be better than its predecessor on all fronts.
Although it's not official yet, the Huawei Mate 20 is now leaked with some interesting details regarding its performance. It seems that someone managed to get their hands on the smartphone and run it through the popular AnTuTu benchmark, and the results are incredible.
So far, Apple's iPhones have pretty much outperformed most Android flagships. While Android-powered counterparts look better on paper with more RAM and more processing cores, iPhones typically came out on top in benchmark tests and real-life speed tests.
Highest AnTuTu Score Ever
More recently, some Android flagships managed to outscore the latest iPhone 8 and iPhone X in AnTuTu and other benchmark tests, as well as real-life speed tests. Both of these iPhones, for instance, were among the first smartphones ever to get an AnTuTu score of more than 200,000, but there's also the Samsung Galaxy S9+ that reached 260,000.
It's quite remarkable but fades in comparison to the upcoming Huawei flagship. Based on the latest leak, the Huawei Mate 20 scored a whopping 356,918 on AnTuTu, the highest score ever recorded.
If it turns out to be accurate and the Huawei Mate 20 will indeed deliver such beastly performance, it might well be the most powerful smartphone around when it launches later this year. On the downside, the smartphone might not be available in the United States from any wireless carriers, as Huawei has been facing some resistance lately.
As always, take all rumors and leaks with a grain of salt until official confirmation.
