The Kirin 820 and Kirin 985 chips from Huawei have stormed into the AnTuTu best-performing midrange smartphone chart for May, with five out of the 10 smartphones listed featuring one of these Kirin SoCs. However, the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L chipset in the OPPO Reno3 5G handset is still the one to beat.

There has been a flurry of changes in the May AnTuTu midrange smartphone chart although the leaderboard is still topped by the OPPO Reno3 5G with its powerful MediaTek Dimensity 1000L. But the gap between first and second place has visibly decreased from last month, thanks to the appearance of devices sporting the decent Kirin 985 chip.

The Honor 30 and Huawei Nova 7 burst into second and third place, respectively, with their Kirin 985 SoCs helping both smartphones achieve average scores of over 385,000 points. Last month, the second-placed Honor 30S with Kirin 820 managed 364,077 points, so the new Kirin 985 has certainly closed the gap between the Dimensity 1000L and its rivals.

Two new Kirin 820-powered smartphones have also entered the chart in the forms of the Honor X10 and Huawei Nova 7 SE, to join the already present Honor 30S. This puts Huawei Kirin processors in second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth positions, while the Snapdragon 765G and Exynos 980 swallow up the bottom four slots. All of the devices powered by a Kirin 810 chipset have now been pushed off the chart.
