A new Huawei device called the OXF-AN10 has arrived onto the Geekbench 4 database. It is powered by 8GB of RAM and a HiSilicon SoC with a description matching that of the Mate 30 Pro on the same benchmarking platform; the Kirin 990, in other words. Its scores also add up effectively against those of the pre-existing flagship phone, as they do against another recent leaked device, which may turn out to be the premium MatePad Pro tablet.
Therefore, based on all this, it is possible that this new model number corresponds to the Honor V30 (or View 30) series, which has an imminent launch date and high-end specs such as 5G variants. Furthermore, other leaks claim that the OXF code-name is linked to this series. In fact, as the OXF-AN00 is thought to be the base V30 variant, these Geekbench scores could refer to the confirmed Pro variant instead.
In addition, both of these variants are also believed to be the 5G versions of either new phone. This is based on observations that Huawei, Honor's parent company, has been using the letter N in its internal product nomenclature to indicate this connectivity. Therefore, should this new device on Geekbench truly be a successor to the Honor V20, we will find out for sure on November 26, 2019.
