One of the most popular apps for benchmark, AnTuTu has removed Realme GT from its platform for allegedly cheating benchmark points. The Chinese software company says the recently released results of the Realme GT performance on multiple read loads and JPG codecs are integrated.
The Realme family has issued a statement on the matter. “Realme GT is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 888 5G platform, which gives users the highest performance. Benchmark benchmarks for Realme GT all the exact details under current versions of Antutu’s benchmark. Realme has always been committed to bringing users the best performance, real user experience is the most important thing for Realme. On the other hand, with regard to the problems being tested by both parties, we are in contact with Antutu to resolve it properly, ”the statement said.
The AnTuTu team purchased a high-end Realme GT variant to see if the bench claims made by the company’s Vice President Xu Qi Chase were true. The sales unit received more than 7,50,000 but the AnTuTu team was not satisfied. In dealing with the process, two issues were identified with the way the phone conducts benchmark testing.
In a multi-modal test, the Realme editor slows down strands intended to run on smaller CPU cores to run on larger cores. The second issue was noted during the UX Test in which JPG compression was performed. It was observed that the phone exceeded a large amount of processing which resulted in a pixelated image with spaces.
AnTuTu has now removed the Realme GT for three months. The company also gives the smartphone maker the conclusion to make the necessary changes to its software otherwise the phone will be removed from the platform permanently.
So far, AnTuTu has revealed that it works on version 9 of the software on the bench. There will be additional anti-cheating measures. If any phone is found trying to get high scores, the platform will point to it and pull the points from the final points. Also, it will charge the smartphone company for additional fines.
Realme GT was launched in China earlier this year at an initial price of CNY 2,799 (over Rs 31,000). There is no word on the launch of Realme’s real phone in India yet.
