Huawei’s Mate 8 Scores Over 90K in AnTuTu


Too good to be true?

Huawei recently released their newest flagship phablet, the Mate 8, sporting the company’s homegrown Kirin 950 octa-core processor. Much has been said about this new processor, and like all new chips we were curious about the performance of their new silicon.

Huawei Mate 8 specs

  • Kirin 950 octa-core processor (4 x 2.3GHz, 4 x 1.8GHz) with i5 coprocessor
  • 3GB/4GB of RAM
  • 6-inch full HD display, 2.5D curved diamond cut glass,  1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage
  • 16-megapixel Sony IMX298 rear cam with f/2.0 aperture and 3-axis OIS
  • 8-megapixel Sony IMX179 front cam with f/2.4 aperture
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, Fingerprint scanner
  • 4000mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow, EMUI


Apparently, the Kirin 950 is a beast of a processor – a screenshot from AnTuTu shows the Mate 8 scoring an unbelievable 94250 points in AnTuTu, which is far higher than any flagship smartphone in existence. That’s even higher than Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 810 processor on an especially good day.

We’re curious to verify the AnTuTu score of the Mate 8 ourselves and if the benchmarks prove to be true, then Huawei has a real beast on their hands.

  2. I really wish people needs to stop putting AnTuTu on a pedestal or something, it’s not the be-all end all benchmark app …. The bloated scores are mostly synthetic in nature …If I wanted to benchmark something I’d go for the game itself if I were to use it on gaming….
