Alleged AnTuTu results show the Snapdragon 652 coming very close to the current Snapdragon 810 SoC.

Rumors on the Galaxy A9 have been rampant these past couple of months. The latest comes from Chinese tech site, which claims to have the first AnTuTu benchmark results on the upcoming octa-core Snapdragon 652 SoC running on the Galaxy A9.

According to the source, the new Qualcomm chip has scored 73592 points in AnTuTu, which is already very close to the Snapdragon 810. The Sony Xperia Z5, for example, scores 76862 points in the same benchmark. While the numbers are remarkable for a mid-range SoC like the Snapdragon 652, AnTuTu scores are not directly comparable between newer and older versions.

The unofficial record holder on the AnTuTu benchmark as of this writing is the LeTV LeMax Pro with a score of 133357 points, which will supposedly carry the Snapdragon 820. The confirmed record holder is the Huawei Mate 8 and its Kirin 950 SoC with a final score of 92746 points. The smartphone was previously only available in Asia, but will make its official debut in parts of Europe in the coming weeks.

As previously reported, the Samsung Galaxy A9 offers a 6-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display and 3 GB RAM alongside the new Snapdragon 652 SoC.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
