Earlier this month, Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 in India whose key highlighting features include the Snapdragon 730 SoC, Indisplay fingerprint scanner and a motorised popup camera. As it seemed, Xiaomi has outperformed all its competitors, the world’s second largest manufacturer, Huawei might have a wild card up its sleeve which holds the potential to steal the K20’s thunder. 

Along with Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro, which were launched last month, Huawei was also expected to announce the Nova 5i Pro which was nowhere to be found. Earlier this week, the promotional material of the smartphone was leaked and now, its performance estimates have also been revealed in the form of Geekbench benchmark. Surprisinlgy, the Nova 5i Pro with the Kirin 810 has managed to surpass Redmi K20 with a substanial margin. 

Following are the single core and multi core Geekbench results of the two smartphones (1,2):

  Redmi K20  Huawei Nova 5i Pro
Single Core 2514 2782
Multi Core 6671 7694

Apparently, the Huawei Nova 5i Pro has much higher multi core score and slightly higher single core score than the Redmi K20. Although benchmarks are not the only factor that determine the performance of a device, but sheer horse power definitely has an upper hand.

Moving ahead, the Nova 5i Pro has been listed on the mandatory certification website TENAA, that has unconvered all its specs allowing for a detailed spec comparison between the two mid range devices.

Although the official price of the Nova 5i Pro is yet to be revealed, the company is expected to sell the handset at an aggressive price point as observed with the Nova 5 and Nova 5 Pro whose prices are as follows:

  Nova 5  Nova 5 Pro
8 GB + 128 GB CNY 2,799 (approx. Rs.28,300) (8 GB + 128 GB): CNY 2,999 (approx. Rs. 30,400)

We believe, if the company is able to price the Nova 5i Pro close to the K20 i.e in the range of Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000, Huawei offering can pose a serious threat to the latter. The launch of the Nova 5i Pro is expected to happen before the end of August.
