The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is expected to be launched on October 22. With this launch date just around the corner, we have been seeing more information about the upcoming phone. The result of the performance of the phone’s chipset is now making the rounds.

On the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, we will be seeing the Kirin 9000 SoC. This has passed through Geekbench5 tests with results that show better scores than the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G’s Snapdragon 865 chip. The Kirin 9000 posted approximately 9% and 15% better scores in single-core and multi-core tests respectively.

Three tests were run on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro’s Kirin 9000 chip and it recorded scores of 1021, 1020, and 1021 in the single-core tests and 3655, 3710, and 3789 in multi-core tests. The Galaxy S20+ 5G, on the other hand, recorded 920 and 956 single-core scores and 3285 and 3162 in multi-core scores. These results were posted on Twitter by @UniverseIce.

The Geekbench5 listing of the Mate 40 Pro also shows the device running Android 10 with 8GB RAM. It is just a shame that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro will likely only sell widely in China. This is considering the fact that it will not support Google Mobile Services. Such a powerful chipset deserves to be seen in devices everywhere.

Only a few days ago, we also saw the new Exynos 1080 chipset in an AnTuTu test, posting better scores than the Snapdragon 865+. The question now is, where will the Kirin 9000 stand when compared with the upcoming Snapdragon 875 and the Exynos 1090/2100?
