Huawei’s next-gen Kirin 950 chispset finally unveiled, to be used in Mate 8
As Huawei is preparing for the production and launch of its newest flagship device – the Huawei Mate 8 – there has been reports of delay in production due to the yet unavailable powerful Kirin 950 chipset which Huawei hoped to rig the device with. Having already seen an invite on Chinese blogging website, Weibo, which earlier announced a possible event holding today, the invite has held true to its own as Huawei has now come out with the Kirin 950 and it boasts a lot of promises that we would truly love to see in mobile devices.
The Kirin 950 has been made to be 64 bit and running on 8 cores (an octa core processor), running on four different cores of the make Cortex-A72 which are running at a frequency of 2.3GHz and a further four Cortex-A53 processors whose frequencies are clocked at 1.8GHz. The A72 cores used in the Kirin 950 over the conventional A57 are more power efficient as they produce so much more and consume so much less power.
Huge energy savings are also promised on this processor since it comes with its own low power sensor processor , the i5, making sure that the smartphone’s work related to sensors are handled by this processor and gives the battery much lasting life.
If these promises are kept to and the side effects recorded are off or minimal at the best, this is poised to be another plus on the side of Huawei which would launch them better in the market.
