The low A14 score could be due to unstable software, so final scores are yet to be official.

Qualcomm has been fighting it hard to compete with Apple’s hardware. So until we get the official scores, it’s hard to believe. Apple’s newly-unveiled A14 Bionic chip has been claimed by the company to be  much faster. 


Snapdragon 865 Beats A14 Bionic, Report: Seriously?

Ice Universe just posted the latest A14 Bionic AnTuTu scores, presumed to be Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max with a total score of 572,333. Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus sits with 629,245 on Asus ROG Phone 3. The regular Snapdragon 865 on Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra has achieved a score of 646,730 and currently tops the AnTuTu’s chart.

The low A14 score could be due to unstable software, so final scores are yet to be official.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max may have been running on unstable hardware and currently is in the pre production stage. Apple A14 Bionic’s performance metrics will be out soon with new iPad Air 4.

Apple A14 Bionic score could be because of TSMC’s 5nm process node as well. Also, the next generation Snapdragon 875 will be manufactured by Samsung and not TSMC.

The company CEO Madhav Sheth teased a “big announcement” at the upcoming IFA 2020, expected to be Realme X3 Pro. The company recently announced the 125W UltraDART fast charging technology, and Realme X3 Pro could become the first device to come with the latest charging solution.

The device may feature the upcoming 108MP camera sensor from Samsung, the HM2 108MP lens as their primary sensor. Realme X3 Pro will replace Realme X2 Pro in the entry-premium category.

Realme X3 Pro will have Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus powering it with support for 65W Dark super fast charging technology. As the X3 series, the Realme X3 Pro series may have two variants as well.

Mi MIX 4

Mi MIX 4 will be the company’s next experimental innovative flagship, said to be launching in July or August. The last Mi MIX smartphone was Mi MIX 3. It launched in October 2018 and the successor Mi MIX 4 has been due since. The company introduced the Mi MIX Alpha, a concept phone in October 2019 and Mi MIX 4 is being rumoured to finally debut in Q4 2020. 

Mi MIX 4 will come with a waterfall screen, 100-megapixel main camera and 5G technology.

While Mi 10 Pro Plus was scheduled during this period, the Mi MIX 4 launch was about to happen earlier. The Coronavirus pandemic worldwide could be the reason behind the delay in launch.

OnePlus 8T, OnePlus 8T Pro

In the last quarter of 2020, we will have the upgraded OnePlus 8 smartphones: OnePlus 8T and OnePlus 8T Pro. The upcoming OnePlus 8T series will come with main 64-megapixel sensors.  OnePlus 8T series will come with 65W Super Warp Charge technology. As already revealed in the last leak, Super Warp Charge Technology will power upto 65W.

The OnePlus T models generally come with slight upgrades, and hence mostly it’s going to be the same between OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8T, and OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8T Pro.

OnePlus 8T smartphones will have similar design and features as OnePlus 8 models like the punch-hole camera upfront, quad camera and build. The devices will have a change with the hardware and some additional functionalities.
