The new global top 10 flagship ranking from AnTuTu is out and it’s not a surprise that more recent smartphones dominated the list. The results also show that 5G supported devices are making their way to international consumers.
South Korean tech giant Samsung dominated the March 2020 flagship ranking with six devices from its Galaxy S20 line are in the top 10. Moreover, the first four handsets also are from the brand. As we all know, Samsung uses two processors in their current premium line with the Snapdragon 865 SoC (mostly for US market), and Exynos 990 for the rest of the world.
Samsung’s top-of-the-line Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage leads the ranking. It comes powered by a Snapdragon 865 SoC and has an average benchmark score of 562,262.
Meanwhile, the second in the list is the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G (12GB+256GB) which uses the same Snapdragon 865 SoC. It has an average score of 549,904. On the other hand, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G (12GB+128GB) with Exynos 990 scores 519,297 points is number three, while the Exynos 990-powered Galaxy S20+ 5G comes fourth with a score of 516,138.
We’ve seen that there are indeed differences in the benchmark points of the Snapdragon and Exynos powered devices. However, all of them performed well in the benchmarks.
Coming in the fifth rank is the familiar ASUS ROG Phone 2 12GB+512GB version. It has been at the top for quite some time but more recent 5G SoC devices managed to outshine it.
Additionally, the smartphones in the sixth to tenth are the following: Galaxy S20 (Exynos 990, 8GB +128GB) with 502,688 points; Galaxy S20+ (Exynos 990, 8GB +128GB) with 502,264 points; OnePlus 7T (8GB+256GB) with 495,917 points; Realme X2 Pro (12GB+256GB) with 484,902 points; and OnePlus 7 Pro (8GB+256GB) with 478,644 points.
The data collection was from March 1 to March 31 and used average scores. There are more than 1,000 handsets used using the AnTuTu Benchmark V8.
With new flagship smartphones announced from other brands like Huawei and OPPO, we can’t wait to see if the list will change in the coming months.
