Today, Xiaomi’s sub-brand announced the Redmi Note 8 Pro and the non-Pro smartphones revealing all specs. The beefed-up Pro version is particularly interesting as it sports the world’s first 64MP camera and the first smartphone to carry the MediaTek Helio G90T gaming SoC. And the first benchmarks are in.
The chip is based on the cost-efficient 12nm node and boasts unmatched gaming performance for its class. And we can see why. The handset appeared on AnTuTu with an overall score of 282,443 points. Those are impressive results as the rather chip SoC blows almost all of its direct competitors out of the water. In fact, we found comparable results in our database from last year’s Snapdragon 845 and the Kirin 970.
This could potentially mean last year’s flagship performance in a very affordable package. We still have to wait for the phone to officially hit the market but it’s going to be an interesting battle between Qualcomm’s mid-range offerings, the Helio G90T and the Kirin 810 chips.
