Purported Meizu 16s achieves amazing score on AnTuTu
The Meizu 16s is starting to look like something of a beast of a smartphone, if the tests for the device that have started surfacing are genuine. We recently reported on the “alps m1971” appearing on Geekbench and tearing that test up, to the point it was rubbing shoulders with Samsung’s Galaxy S10 flagships. Now it seems the powerful device from the Chinese manufacturer is doing the same thing on AnTuTu.
An apparent screenshot of the Meizu 16s’ performance was uploaded to Weibo and then shared on Twitter, with the device in question scoring a scorching 357,975 points. To help put that into perspective, the recently released Xiaomi Mi 9 that also sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC scored 374,820 points on AnTuTu (v7) in our review. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro managed 300,617 in our tests and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ (with Exynos 9820) scored 333,277.
What this means is that the SD855 is a very fast SoC and the alleged Meizu 16s is a very fast smartphone. It’s believed the model in the AnTuTu benchmark is a pre-production device, which means the final version could be even faster. Of course, there’s always the chance the test has been faked; we will know for sure how well the smartphone performs when the Meizu 16s gets in the hands of our reviewers.
