The Huawei Honor 9 was just unveiled and thanks to Geekbench, we’re getting our first glimpse at the performance of the Kirin 960 chipset at its heart.

This is a CPU test so we’re focusing on the octa-core processor of the new premium mid-ranger. It has four Cortex-A73 cores (running at 2.4GHz) and four A53 cores (clocked at 1.8GHz), which were built on TSMC’s 16nm FFC process. Also note that the Honor 9 features 6GB of RAM, something even most flagships on the list below don’t have.

GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)

Higher is better

  • Xiaomi Mi 66719
  • Galaxy S8 (Exynos 8895)6656
  • Honor 9 (Kirin 960)6519
  • HTC U11 (S835)6393
  • Xperia XZ Premium (S835)5460
  • LG G6 (S821)4175

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

  • Galaxy S8 (Exynos 8895)1991
  • Xiaomi Mi 61929
  • HTC U11 (S835)1919
  • Honor 9 (Kirin 960)1865
  • Xperia XZ Premium (S835)1836
  • LG G6 (S821)1767

Keep in mind this is a €360 phone (in China at least, taxes will push that the worldwide price up). And that’s stellar performance for the price, Huawei’s Honor brand has a real fighter on its hands.
