The last Huawei chipset, the Kirin 935, turned out quite capable powering the P8 and P8 lite. However, Huawei doesn’t stop and continues to work to bring to its users a better user experience on their devices.
Earlier this year, there were some information about the new chipsets, Kirin Kirin 940 and 950, that the company should be developing and that would equip some devices later this year. But while we wait for the Kirin 940 to go public, perhaps with the Huawei Mate 7S, new informations appear about the Kirin 950.
This promises to be the best Huawei chipset until now with an octa-core processor with 4x Cortex-A72 at 2.4GHz and 4x Cortex-A57. The GPU in charge of graphics will be a Mali-T880 unit and the SoC will support LPDDR4 RAM.
Thanks to these improvements, this new chipset from the Chinese company reaches 6000 points in the multi-core Geekbench 3 test, which translates into about 20% more than the Exynos 7420 that equips the Galaxy line. In the single-core performance, the score reaches 1900 points, 30% better than the results of Exynos 7420.
Some information say that the Huawei Mate 7 will be chosen for the premiere of the Kirin 950.
