A few days ago, we’ve been talking about the monopoly or the empty window that Xiaomi will get when launching the Xiaomi Mi 9 in a couple of days. Previously, Wang Teng has said, within two months, no other smartphone brand except Xiaomi (and Black Shark) will launch a smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 855. This means the upcoming Mi 9 will be the most powerful device on the market for two months, at least. Of course, we have already seen the non-official score of this phone at AnTuTu. It managed to reach 380,000. Today, the Chinese benchmark platform, Master Lu released a screenshot via its Weibo channel, showing the Xiaomi 9 scoring 409,889. Thus, this is the new leader.
We shouldn’t be an expert to understand this outstanding result is related to the Snapdragon 855 processor. But the tested model was packed with a 12GB+256GB memory combination, which helped the phone get so high scores. Plus, the Xiaomi Mi 9 will run on Android 9.0 and sport a screen with a 2340×1080 resolution.
In addition, Master Lu also released the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT 855 version’s scores. This handset is equipped with the Snapdragon 855 as well. But Lenovo’s running score is only 356,679 points. Undoubtedly, the optimization of the smartphone itself is very important. The Kirin 980 powered Honor V20 with 8 GB of RAM has scored 310,410.
Though this is quite eye-catching, we have been expecting the Xiaomi Mi 9 to become the most powerful smartphone and/or be among them because this handset is going to sport tons of outstanding features. At this moment, the key specs list revealed by Lei Jun or other officials includes a triple-camera with a 48MP main sensor, the very thin chin of 3.6mm only, a drop screen, a ‘strong’ selfie camera, a 20W wireless charge support, and many more.
