The Motorola Moto X40, likely to be known as the Edge 40 Pro in western markets, still awaits its release. We’ve had numerous reports and leaks and we know for a fact that it’s running the recently announced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset from Qualcomm. Now Lenovo’s General Manager of the mobile business arm shared its AnTuTu score.
The 1,312,901 result is around 30% higher than what we get on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered smartphones. Even the Plus variant of the SoC barely gets past the 1 million points barrier. In fact, some handsets post less than that. This seems to be in line with Qualcomm’s claims of about 35% performance increase over the last generation.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 employs next-gen ARM CPU cores – 1x Cortex-X3, 4x Cortex-A715 and 3x Cortex-A510 along with a new Adreno GPU promising around 25% improvement.
