The Huawei Mate 40 Pro is one of the most powerful smartphones of 2020 thanks to its Kirin 9000 processor. Unfortunately, it will be the last in this line of good processors, but for now, it shows up incredibly fast compared to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865+.
Serves the following video to illustrate some of the differences in speed and performance of both processors – Kirin 9000 and Snapdragon 865+ – the Mate 40 Pro and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra engines, the smartphone high-end from Samsung.
The duel between Kirin and Snapdragon processors
The test is realistic in that it places both devices on an equal footing. Over several stages in which the speed with which they complete different tasks is determined, we begin to see some differences in the progress of both.
In several places the Huawei smartphone is very close to the Samsung smartphone. However, there are crucial differences in the approach of both manufacturers – Huawei and Qualcomm. The Chinese dominates the pure computing power, but sins in the graphics.
Computational power vs. graphical power
The video was written by Gary Sims of AndroidAuthority and shows us that Kirin is excellent at handling common applications. However, as far as the graphics department is concerned, Qualcoom's GPU is truly superior in all aspects.
Even so, the Kirin 9000 is more powerful in terms of graphics than its predecessor, but not enough to surpass Qualcomm's graphics solution. That said, for those looking for the best gaming performance, Snapdragon processors remain the best bet, not that Huawei chips are far behind.
In summary, we have two top mobile platforms with different approaches. Generally, the Snapdragon 865+ proves to be the fastest processor, but without Huawei being frowned upon in this test.
