The gaming-focused Asus ROG Phone, Xiaomi’s Black Shark Helo gaming smartphone and Xiaomi Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition, all powered by Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, have occupied the last three places on AnTuTu’s top 10 list of best performance smartphones for February 2019. These devices have scored 297,953, 297,473 and 296,953 respectively.
The Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e smartphones were announced in February. However, they are not mentioned in the list because they haven’t released in the Chinese market yet. The Galaxy S10 series are expected to release in China on March 8. Hence, there is a possibility that the next month’s best performance smartphones list by AnTuTu could be led by the Snapdragon 855 powered Galaxy S10 phones.
