AnTuTu recently unveiled its final top 10 performance rankings for 2023, and there have been significant changes compared to that of the previous month. A notable observation is that, in December, none of the devices scored below 2 million points, which is quite surprising because these are the average scores for each phone calculated based on data from all over the world.

Without further ado, here are the December rankings for the top 10 flagship Android smartphones based on their performance.

OnePlus 12, which launched in the first week of December has taken the first spot with 2,188,135 points. While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip is the reason for its amazing performance, it is also worth mentioning that the smartphone has a massive 9,140mm² vapor chamber cooling system built into it to keep the temperatures in check, giving the CPU more headroom to push harder.

Trailing by just 2116 points is the Vivo X100, which was in the same position last month as well against the Red Magic 9 Pro+. This Dimensity 9300-powered smartphone is a fresh breath of air for many as it signifies that the two major players in the smartphone SoC arena are almost neck and neck when it comes to performance. We expect to see more MediaTek Dimensity-powered flagships to launch in the future.

A standout on the list is the iQOO Neo9 Pro at number 3, not being a flagship with its $419 price tag. Still, it holds its ground with an average score of 2,181,443 points, courtesy of the Dimensity 9300 chip. This device is likely to attract customers seeking a budget-friendly gaming option.

Speaking of gaming, the gaming flagship Red Magic 9 Pro+ which was number 1 last month has slid down to number 6. This is likely because its performance has dipped by around 40,000 points compared to last month.

The OnePlus 12 and the iQOO Neo9 Pro are heading to the global market soon. However, it looks like the global market will be getting a different chip inside of its iQOO Neo9 Pro.
