Thanks to Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, we’re going to see faster Android phones for the rest of this year and into 2023. The component will be manufactured by TSMC (with one exception we’ll discuss later) using its 4nm process node. and the foundry says the new silicon will be 35% faster and 40% more power efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. As the process node gets smaller, smaller transistors are used on the chip, allowing more of them to fit inside for more power and less battery drain.

Based on its AnTuTu score, iQOO 11 5G might be the fastest Android phone.

One of the new Android phones powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset is the iQOO 11 5G. Already launched in China, the phone is coming to India, the world’s second-largest smartphone market, early next month, according to data. MySmartPrice. Not only will this be the first phone in India to be equipped with the new Qualcomm application processor, but it could also be the fastest Android phone.

One way to determine how fast a phone compares to other models is through benchmark tests. One such app that does is AnTuTu, although the benchmarking app was removed from the Google Play Store back in 2020 because Cheetah Mobile violated Play Store rules. Although Cheetah Mobile does not own AnTuTu, it is a contributor to the platform. yet, AnTuTu says it works independently of Cheetah.

Although AnTuTu is no longer available to install from the Play Store, there is still a way to install it on an Android phone. And that’s probably how an anonymous source was able to provide MySmartPrice with the iQOO 11 5G rating. The source leaked a screenshot showing the phone scoring 1,323,820 points. That includes 270,987 points for the CPU test and 607,822 points for the GPU test. AnTuTu also awarded the phone 244,782 points for memory and 200,229 points for user experience.
Apart from being equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the iQOO 11 5G has UFS 4.0 storage and LPDDR5X RAM.

The iQOO 11 5G outperforms some very highly rated gaming phones

Among the phones that the iQOO 11 5G topped in AnTuTu are the ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro. Those two gaming phones scored 1,117,968 and 1,110,082 respectively on AnTuTu, with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC under their hood. Other highly rated models topped by the iQOO phone include Asus Zenfone 9, Xiaomi Mi 12T Pro and Nubia Red Magic 7 Pro.

So, based on the numbers, the iQOO 11 5G is the highest scoring and possibly the fastest Android phone out there; that is, for now anyway. AnTuTu scores are constantly changing as new models and faster chips are released. Back in 2017, AnTuTu revealed this The highest rated Android phone was the OnePlus 3T with 163,013 points. Overall, the highest rated phone is the iPhone 7 Plus with 181,316 points.

Some Android manufacturers had a habit of gaming the system, which would add a few points to their benchmark scores. So while we can’t use benchmark apps to give us the final word, they can still be useful as conversation starters in the same way two sports fans might debate whether Aaron Judge is the real single-season home run record holder.

Now, to clarify the light end, we told you that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is manufactured by TSMC using its 4nm process node. Samsung is using an overclocked version of the chip for the upcoming Galaxy S23 flagship. Those chipsets will be manufactured by Samsung’s own foundry using its 4nm process node. The high-performance Cortex X-3 of the TSMC version of the chip will run at a clock speed of 3.2 GHz. On a Samsung-made chip, that same high-performance core will be overclocked to 3.32 GHz.

By the way, the iQOO brand belongs to the Chinese secretive BBK Electronics. It is the same company that owns Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus and Realme.
