AnTuTu has released its list of top 10 best performance smartphones for the month of July. The new list reveals that the phones that have made it to the top 10 list have managed to record more than 250K+ average benchmarking score. Xiaomi’s Black Shark gaming is leading the pack by scoring nearly 300,000 average benchmarking score.
The above list contains the top 10 best performing smartphones between July 1 and July 30. The Black Shark has recorded an impressive score of 292,977. The second place goes to OPPO Find X with a score of 286,589. The Vivo NEX is sitting on the third potion with a score of 283,877.
OnePlus 6 is at the fourth spot with a score of 282,644. The Smartisan R1 ranks on the fifth with a score of 274,279. The Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi MIX 2S have respectively score 272,555 and 262,751 to slot themselves on sixth and seventh positions. The Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S9 and Sony Xperia XZ2.
Earlier this year, the Kirin 970 SoC powered Huawei phones were seen leading the list of AnTuTu’s best performing smartphones. However, all the 10 phones that have appeared in the top 10 list for July are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. This theoretically shows that SD845 phones can offer better performance than Kirin 970 powered Huawei and Honor phones.
Huawei will be launching 7nm Kirin 980 SoC at IFA 2018. In October, it is expected to debut Kirin 980 driven phones such as Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. By November, these phones could be available in wider markets. Hence, the Chinese manufacturer may lead the list of AnTuTu’s best performing smartphones by November. Rumors have it that Honor may also debut Honor V11 or V20 as a successor phone for Honor V10 phone from 2017.
