AnTuTu benchmark is the leading benchmarking tool and is responsible for giving us a glimpse of the performance of the upcoming hardware. The benchmark website released its December AnTuTu flagship smartphone performance chart for Android devices.
The performance chart revealed that the new Xiaomi Mi 11 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset is the leader, with an average score over a thousand benchmarks of 708,425 points. The second place is secured by Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ with its HiSilicon Kirin 9000 SoC securing 702,819 points.
We already know that there is a strict competitive rivalry between Huawei and Xiaomi, so the news of Xiaomi’s phone coming on top might put a smile on the faces of its executives. Especially because Xiaomi’s smartphones are a lot cheaper than Huawei’s.
When comparing the results between the Snapdragon 888 vs Kirin 9000, it was rather surprising to see the similarities between the two silicons. The CPU scores across the averages were 196,344 for the Mi 11 and 191,286 for the Mate 40 Pro+. In the GPU results, the Adreno 660 iGPU helping the Xiaomi Mi 11 reach 306,548 points while the Mali-G78 component in the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ scored 305,358 points.
In the UX section, Xiaomi’s Mi 11 was the clear victor owing to its 2K 120 Hz screen due to which the Snapdragon 888 scored 94,969 points whereas the Mate 40 Pro+ scored 88,029 points. But the performance of snapdragon 888 can still be improved and analysts indicate that we can still expect more from the SoC.
