The first smartphones running the new platform debuted in July. Qualcomm had previously launched the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor as a little update to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Recently, AnTuTu announced its monthly ranking of the best-performing Android phones, and the top two positions being held by devices with the newest flagship chipset is not surprising.
Over 1 million points were earned by the ROG Phone 6 Pro, an Asus smartphone with 18GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, which was closely followed by the Zenfone 9. With the non-Plus chip, the Red Magic 7 by Nubia completed the podium and took the lead.
This time around, AnTuTu added a new rating for sub-flagships. The OnePlus 10R and Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G are the top two phones using the Dimensity 8100 processors, followed by a number of Snapdragon 870-powered phones. We can observe that the OnePlus 10R’s 8100-Max variant has a little advantage over the standard processor.
The Snapdragon 778G and 780G are the only two chipsets from the mid-range class that are featured in the top 10, and they are both fairly similar. The Dimensity 920 from MediaTek is what kept this from being a complete victory.
Each phone’s score is determined by averaging the outcomes from all devices that have completed at least 1,000 benchmark runs. The largest memory combination on the market, which is listed next to the model name, is not necessarily to blame for all runs.
As additional Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 phones, notably the Xiaomi 12S Ultra and the Red Magic 7S, meet the necessary number of runs to qualify, classifications in the flagship category are anticipated to change in August.
