Earlier this week, a smartphone codename Mulan from Chinese smartphone maker Huawei leaked online touting a it's flagship specs which included a 1080p touchscreen display, 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera capable of recording videos in 4K resolution.
But what is more important is the fact that it comes with a the company's home-brewed Kirin 920 8-core featuring SoC, which the company has officially announced today. Apparently, the Mulan would probably be the first handset that would feature the Kirin 920 octa core processor.
In terms of configuration, the new SOC from Huawei comes with the ARM big.LITTLE architecture inside, and with integrated multi-mode LTE Cat 6 radio, being the first SoC out there to include these 4G capabilities. Which means, the LTE Cat 6 will help deliver data speeds of up to 300Mbps on compatible networks.
Obviously the two quad core sets would be Cortex-A15 that can be clocked between 1.7GHz and 2.0GHz, and a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, which can be tuned between 1.3GHz to 1.6GHz. Moreover, the new Huawei Kirin 920, is also designed using the 28nm manufacturing process, that comes with the powerful Mali-T628MP4 quad-core graphics, which means that it will support 2K displays and 4K video recording.
According to Huawei, the new Kirin 920 also comes with a low-power I3 sensor co-processor, as well as with a Tensilica HIFI3 audio processor. But the company has reportedly said that it will not release the 64-bit chipset until the next year.
