Huawei Mate 8 was announced this week and the 6 inch phablet will be on sale next year in Q1. In the meantime we can’t help but be amazed by its benchmark scores. The device passed 94.000 points in AnTuTu, leaving in the dust performers like the Exynos 7420.
The highlight of the phone is the HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, an octa core in house developed unit with Mali T880 graphics. The Mate 8 is no slouch, with a 4000 mAh battery, a 16 megapixel back camera and a 360 degree fingerprint scanner. Before the handset was launched its CPU was spotted scoring 79.131 points in AnTuTu.
Now, as the finalized version popped up, the result is 94.250, clearly higher than the 68k or 69k points achieved by the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, plus the Note 5. Mate 8 also has the advantage of a Full HD resolution, instead of Quad HD. I can’t wait to see it in action at CES 2016 and also find out what temperature it gets to.
