Leaked Huawei P30 Pro press renders
The Huawei P30 Pro is the next big smartphone of the year and with just a couple of weeks left until its announcement, the flagship has been spotted (via Nashville Chatter) on popular benchmarking site Geekbench.
In terms of the multi-core test, the premium device was able to score a very respectable 9,670 points. An equally-impressive score of 3,251 was achieved by the device on the single-core test. These results were made possible by the presence of the high-end Kirin 980 chip and a considerable 8GB of RAM. The benchmark listing also confirms the presence of Android 9 Pie.
In comparison to other flagships, though, the results aren’t quite as high. The Snapdragon 855-powered Galaxy S10+, for example, consistently produces multi-score results in the region of 11,000 points and single-core ones of around 3,500 points. The Exynos 9820 version, on the other hand, boosts the single-core results to over 4,000 and maintains the multi-core numbers at around 10,500.
At the end of the day, benchmark results aren’t everything. Nowadays, both hardware and software optimization play huge roles in the real-life performance of devices. But considering Samsung and Apple typically put a lot of effort into these areas, Huawei might have a lot of catching up to do with its P30 series and inferior chip.
