The year 2019 has passed and we are off to 2020. Before new devices come in, let’s take a look at AnTuTu’s top flagships and mid-range Android smartphones for the month of December 2019.
As expected, AnTuTu’s list os is once again filled with devices powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processors paired with high RAM and fast UFS storage. But what’s surprising is the brand that took the top 3 spots.
The first three phones are from Vivo — the Vivo iQOO Neo 855 Racing, the Vivo iQOO Pro 5G and the Vivo NEX 3 5G.
Completing the list is the Realme X2 Pro, the Black Shark 2 Pro, and the Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G.
Now onto the mid-range segment. Nowadays, mid-range devices are the most popular among many because of the balance between price and performance.
At the top of the list is the the Vivo X30 Pro 5G with an Exynos 980 chip, followed by the OPPO Reno3 Pro 5G with a Snapdragon 765G and three Kirin 810 powered Honor phones 9X Pro, 20S, and 9X.
Topping off the mid-range list is the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi K30, Xiaomi CC9 Pro, OPPO Reno2, and the Realme X2.
As with the November list, the Huawei Nova 5T is not on the list. After the EMUI 10 update, it’s AnTuTu score jumped from 274k to 385k. Most probable reason is that it didn’t meet the requirement of 1000 tested units to be included on the list.
These next coming months will be exciting as we begin to see new chipsets on the list, including the MediaTek Dimensity 1000, and a few new Snapdragons.
AnTuTu sets statistical rules to qualify. Scores are averaged, and collected from December 1 to December 31, 2019. At least 1000 units should be tested running AnTuTu Benchmark V8. The scores are averaged across all devices.
