AnTuTu has updated its Android leaderboards for November, offering an insight into what smartphones it considers the most powerful at the moment. Undoubtedly, the influx of Snapdragon 888-powered devices will soon dominate AnTuTu, but they probably will not begin to arrive en-masse until early 2021. We should point out that AnTuTu bases its leaderboards on the averages across a month, which is why they do not match with its overall rankings.
Based on the images below, Huawei dominates the flagship segment, with the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 40 Pro Plus out in front thanks to their Kirin 9000 chipsets. The pair averaged 684,069 and 698,654 points respectively, which are both healthy leads over the Snapdragon 865-powered Mi 10 Ultra - also known as the Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative Edition. In fact, Qualcomm dominates the top 10 leaderboard, with Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus occupying third to tenth spots.
Qualcomm does not enjoy the same representation in AnTuTu's midrange leaderboard, though. On the contrary, Huawei has the most representatives here with six devices split across the Kirin 985 and Kirin 820. The Redmi K30 5G is the only Qualcomm-powered smartphone here, but it and its Snapdragon 768G manage just ninth place.
MediaTek has a strong showing here, especially the Dimensity 820. The chipset powers the Redmi 10X 5G and Redmi 10X Pro 5G to first and third spots with scores of 404,089 and 398,227. So, the Redmi 10X 5G and Dimensity 820 are currently the darlings of the midrange, albeit by a smaller gap than Huawei's Kirin 9000-powered pair do. The time at the top will probably be shortlived for the Redmi 10X 5G though, as prototype Snapdragon 775G platforms are believed to be tracking at over 530,000 points on AnTuTu.
