iQOO is not a familiar name in the UK being a sub-brand of Vivo, another brand not seen here, but the iQOO 3 5G launches in India on February 25, 2020, and for now, is the best performing phone to be benchmarked.
Like most, up and coming flagship phones the iQOO 3 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.
It is also the latest phone to be benchmarked on Antutu, being the third phone with the SD865 to be tested on it.
The iQOO 3 5G will run on the latest Android 10 OS out of the box. Powering the device will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, which will be paired with an Adreno 650 GPU, up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB of UFS3.1 storage.
The screen is expected to be a 6.44-inch AMOLED display and the benchmark confirms it is running at 2400 x 1080 pixels.
The camera will adopt the increasingly popular 4 lens approach with a 64MP primary lens, then two 13MP lenses and a 2MP. It has not been confirmed about what type these are, but I would expect an ultra-wide, telephoto and a TOF sensor.
The iQOO 3 5G will have a 4,440 mAh battery with 55W Flash SuperCharge support, which will charge up the phonel from flat to 50% in 15 minutes.
The phone manages a record-breaking score of 597,583 overall with 184,003 points in the CPU performance test, 224,871 points in the GPU performance test, 107,315 points in the memory performance test, and 81,394 points in the UX performance.
The most recent benchmark leak was the Xiaomi Mi 10 which managed a score of 560,217 with 180,132 for CPU, 210,371 for GPU, 89,927 for memory, and 79,787 for UX.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G was the first to get benchmarked with a score of 574,989.
Currently, the top 5 places of Antutu are taken by the ROG Phone 2 (12+512), OnePlus 7T (8+256), realme X2 Pro (12+256) then both variants of the OnePlus 7.
Floundering in eighth place is the Samsung Note10+ with the Exynos 9825.
It has been previously revealed that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 beats the Exynos 99 easily in the GeekBench multi-core performance but falls slightly behind with the single-core performance.
Early benchmarks revealed a reference device featuring the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 scored 511,363.
With Qualcomm already dominating the Antutu benchmarks, and GeekBench results indicating superior performance of the Exynos 990, will Qualcomm continue to be the best chipset maker for 2020?
