Huawei is currently working on its next chipset, the Kirin 950 that will be included in some of its high end smartphones in the future. We have been hearing about this chipset for some time now and Huawei may include it in the next premium smartphone it unveils.
With the Huawei Mate 7S set to be unveiled in September, I will not be surprised to see this chipset in it.
The Kirin 950 chipset has four Cortex-A72 cores that can top speeds of 2.4GHz and four Cortex-A57 cores. This chipset can handle a 42MP camera and supports LPDDR4 RAM.
The Kirin 950 chipset has already undergone a benchmark test and it has seen very positive results. It has managed to score 1909 for the single-core test and 6096 for the multi-core test. This is quite impressive and from the results, it has managed to beat Samsung’s Exynos 7420 that managed to score 1486 for the single-core test and 4970 for the multi-core test.
Keep in mind the Exynos 7420 is used on the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.
Even though the Kirin 950 beats the Exynos 7420 from Samsung, Samsung is believed to be working on its next chipset that will be out by the end of 2016.
