Dan, 23 Jan 2019Yes we'll see. Many SD845 phones are scoring 290k+ in antutu, this Lenovo scoring 371k means ... moreantutu is a not a cpu benchmark, its a compilation. qualcomm only promises a 45% improvement in CPU performance. Not GPU
Asphalt-nation, 22 Jan 2019Wow
That XZ4 is one beast of a phone If the leak is true yes, it will be the most powerful smartphone in the world atm. BUT, that's not enough for many users.
I for one want a 5 inch phone with headphone jack.

qualcomm claims "up to 45% uplift in performance", so 371k isn't really that impressive. My guess is poor optimization in their UI is the culprit.

So did the Japanese cheat even more?
I just wish this is not "enhanced" score, there was some articles that Chinese phones rigged the benckmark results such as Huawei from last year.
Where's the square 4 lens camera again? We were baited months back and still haven't seen any. This situation reminds me if the quality of my g5.
123, 22 Jan 2019you can install google play on chineese phones, maybe ?Unfortunately that may not be straight forward. It used to be fully possible in the past, but now the device needs to be on the list of approved devices. Otherwise google play will not work. This includes sideloading.
Someone here tried on the Z5 Pro and no luck.
Perhaps older versions of google play, maps etc will work. Versions from before this was implemented, but they probably don't support android 8.1 and who knows how long they even would work until update is required.
So the sad conclusion is that Lenovo just does not want this outside of China.
You can still get it, you just have to use a different appstore and get by with not using google's apps or apps requiring google services. But for me at least, that would be a bit unfortunate as I rely a lot on the automatic backup of my photos and such through google photos. I also prefer google maps, but there are many other good GPS/map apps with offline modes as well.
They make fantastic high end Think Pads, let's hope this follows in those particular steps.
abigfanoftechs, 22 Jan 2019Don't believe Lienovo! We just need to figure out how they scammed AnTuTu. :-)It will be the Snapdragons powerful GPU thats beefed up the score.
hope this gets an international release with correct LTE bands, and play store access.
