A couple of days ago, Huawei announced the October 22nd event to launch the Huawei Mate 40 Series & as we know already, the phones under this series are rumoured to feature the 5nm Kirin 9000 chipset. Well, today, an upcoming Huawei device with the model number “NOH-NX9” was benchmark on AnTuTu & this phone is powered by the Kirin 9000 SOC. This phone could very well be one of the upcoming Mate 40 series devices.
The device scores 693,605 on AnTuTu Benchmark & as the benchmark reveals, the Kirin 9000 SOC packs an octa-core CPU featuring four Cortex-A77 cores clocked at up to 3.13GHz & four Cortex-A55 cores. Recently, the Exynos 1080 SOC by Samsung was benchmarked on AnTuTu & that chipset has a similar benchmark score despite the fact that it has the more powerful Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 3GHz.
The Kirin 9000 beats the Exynos 1080 in terms of the CPU score but the GPU score of the Exynos 1080 is a tad bit higher.
The Huawei Mate 40 Series device benchmarked on AnTuTu has a 90Hz display with a resolution of 2772×1344, 8GB LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB UFS 3.1 storage, Android 10 & a 50 Megapixel primary rear camera.
Compared to the Kirin 990 5G, the Kirin 9000 SOC offers a huge performance boost & it is very much clear when we compare the Kirin 990’s AnTuTu score of around 500,000 with the AnTuTu score of Kirin 9000. To no surprise, the Kirin 9000 chipset also easily beats the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.
