We already know that Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro is launching on July 30 in China & it is an upgrade to this year’s Black Shark 2 as it features the upgraded Snapdragon 855 Plus SOC. Keep in mind that Xiaomi is not the first smartphone maker that’s going to launch a phone with this SOC. In fact, Asus has already launched the ROG Phone 2, world’s first phone with Snapdragon 855 Plus chip.
The Black Shark 2 Pro showed up on AnTuTu benchmark today & it absolutely destroyed every other phone in terms of the scores. It is the first Android phone to score over 400,000 on AnTuTu benchmark, all thanks to the Snapdragon 855 Plus SOC. Some of the specifications revealed by the AnTuTu listing include 12GB RAM, 256GB storage, Android 9 Pie & a Full-HD+ display.
The Black Shark 2 that launched this year scored around 375,000 on AnTuTu & when we compare the scores of both the phones in detail, we see that there is not much difference in the CPU score (It’s almost a 3.3% increase in the CPU score). That’s not surprising since there is only a 4% boost in CPU performance in the Snapdragon 855 Plus when compared to the 855.
But, when it comes to the GPU scores, there is a difference of almost 30,000 points. This is because the GPU performance is now 15% better.
Now, the Memory score is also better than the Black Shark 2’s so it might hint at UFS 3.0 storage on the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro.
