He Huawei Mate S originally it was going to be the Mate 8 with the Kirin 950 processor. This was not going to be ready in time, so they launched what is now the Huawei Mate S, a different smartphone. However, Huawei continues with its plans, and we already know some features of the new Huawei Kirin 950, which will be the processor of the Huawei Mate 8 and Honor 7 Plus.
An eight-core processor
He Huawei Kirin 950 It will be an eight-core processor, so it will not have the 10 cores of the MediaTek Helio X20, but that is not a reference because we expect to compete with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, which will also have eight cores, and therefore, it will also be at the level of the MediaTek Helio X20, although they are processors with different configurations.
In this case, it will be manufactured with 16 nanometer technology, and will be composed of a group of four cores with a Cortex-A72 architecture, which will be the high performance group, and a group of four cores with a Cortex-A53 architecture, which will be the one with low energy consumption. Thus, the processor will be able to reach a clock frequency of 2.5 GHz in high performance, but it will not exceed 1.5 GHz in low power consumption. In addition to this, it will be a 64-bit processor, compatible with a new generation LPDDR4 type RAM, and also compatible with UFS 2.0 memory. Thus, it will be at the level of the best mobiles in terms of memory speed. The truth is that smartphones with a Huawei Kirin 935 processor do not obtain great results in the benchmark, but that would be solved with the Huawei Kirin 950, a processor that should bring Huawei phones to the same level as the high-end next year.
Honor 7 Plus and Huawei Mate 8
This processor is expected to be integrated in the new Huawei Mate 8, and also in the Honor 7 Plus, two smartphones that will be at a higher level than the previous Huawei Mate S, Huawei Mate 7 and Honor 7. For now, that yes, it will still be necessary to confirm when these two smartphones will be launched, and what will be the definitive technical characteristics of these smartphones.
