While we are hearing about a new Honor smartphone coming to India soon well it looks the upcoming smartphone will possibly feature the company's latest Kirin 960 processor.
As per Huawei, this chipset which is the latest addition to the Kirin 900 family is all set to be launched in India soon. Further, with this processor the company aims to provide a smoother, faster, more secure Android experience to the users. While it sounds exciting, the chipset will offer revolutionary performance, efficiency, and security in a wide range of applications, such as gaming, photography, and calling.
Talking about the chipset itself, Kirin 960 incorporates the latest Cortex-A73 processor, Mali-G71 graphics chip, and UFS 2.1 storage technology to deliver a faster user experience. This is the first commercial deployment of the A73 core, which packs incredible boost performance while curbing power consumption by 15 percent. It will not only maximize power but also increase the speed to ensure that the device runs efficiently over time.
And not only that, Kirin 960 had already set a new standard for endurance time and allows augmented reality (AR) games to be enjoyed by consumers. The chipset supports Vulkan, the all-new graphics standard that leverages the true performance of the multi-core GPU.
Additionally, the chipset provides a complete solution based on the Android Nougat version of Vulkan while adopting the Vulkan standard so that the octa-core GPU performance is maximized. "It also offers exceptional virtual reality (VR) performance and can render 2K video at 90 fps with an MTP lag of less than 18ms," says the company.
Kirin 960 highlights a fine balance between performance and power consumption. Its i6 coprocessor offers 30 percent higher memory capacity, allowing it to run more services.
And there's more that this chipset can do. It brings a new dual camera experience by adopting the latest dual camera technology, with upgraded visual features while also incorporating the latest audio chip solution Hi6403 to provide a better music playback experience.
"Smartphones have gone beyond being simply communication devices. A premium quality processor is necessary to ensure that the devices perform flawlessly," states the company.
In any case, as we have said above the new Kirin 960 will likely be featured in Huawei's upcoming smartphone scheduled to be launched in the coming weeks. With its in-house operating system and Kirin 960, Huawei's next device will surely be ticking off all the boxes perfectly by bringing together best-in-class hardware and software, from optical lenses to sensors, to image processing algorithms, empowering users to capture the highest-quality images.
