A Huawei device with the model name VOG-L29 has surfaced on Geekbench today (March 12, 2019). It has exhibited 2019 flagship specs and the scores to go with it. They have beaten up-to-date entries for the P20 Pro on the same database by a considerable margin.

We may have what may be the first indications of what the next Huawei P-series flagship is capable of. It comes in the form of new entries on the Geekbench 4.3 database for a device called the VOG-L29. This model name has been previously linked to the upcoming P30 Pro.

Geekbench testing of this device apparently resulted in findings that it runs on an ARMv8 chipset that runs at a minimum of 1.80 GHz. This compares well to the Geekbench description of the Kirin 980, which is thought to make a re-appearance this year in the P-series flagships. The VOG-L29 returned single-core scores of 3251-3289, and multi-core scores of 9670-9817.

These are impressive results, especially when compared with those posted for the Huawei P20 Pro on the same day (March 12, 2019). This may be explained by crucial differences between these phones. The P20 Pro tested was a 6GB RAM SKU, whereas the VOG-L29 had 8GB of RAM. This is in line with earlier leaks suggesting that this will be the P30 Pro's base-model's memory specs this year. The P20 Pro also ran on Android 8.1 (Oreo), whereas the new VOG-L29 was associated with Android 9.0 (Pie).
