AnTuTu Benchmark has released the report for the month of October. The recently launched Huawei Mate 40 Pro now top the list of flagship smartphones. OPPO Find X2 and Mi 10 Pro are no longer in the top 10 list. On the other hand, the mid-range smartphone list is virtually unchanged with only one minor difference, compared to last month’s report.
In case you are unaware, AnTuTu, a popular Chinese benchmarking platform publishes reports every month with lists of top-performing Android smartphones. The scores considered by the firm are average points garnered by the devices and not their highest score.
Right now, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is the only Android smartphone in the world powered by a 5nm chipset, HiSilicon Kirin 9000 to be exact. Hence, it makes sense for it to top the list for October with 685,359 points.
But despite being based on a 7nm process, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865-equipped iQOO 5 Pro at second place scores 663,979 points. That’s because the amount of RAM and refresh rate affects scores. Both of which are higher in the iQOO device (12GB, 120Hz) compared to the Mate40 Pro (8GB, 90Hz).
Then, surprisingly, vivo X50 Pro+ (661, 342 points) overtakes the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra (659,561 points). That’s not all, the newly launched Redmi K30S Ultra (660,133 points) aka Mi 10T also scores than Xiaomi’s 10th-anniversary flagship.
Further, the ASUS ROG Phone 3 with 630,765 points overshadows Lenovo Legion Pro, which scored 625,394 points. Whereas, as mentioned in the beginning, the Mi 10 Pro, which has been now discontinued and OPPO Find X2 don’t make it to the list.
On the other hand, the list for mid-range smartphones has only one change and that is the HUAWEI nova7 Pro (382,866 points) is now ahead of the vanilla nova7 (382,771 points).
