This upcoming SoC allegedly packs eight ARM cores with clock speeds up to 2.4 GHz and one ARM Mali T880 graphics processing unit.

The upcoming Huawei Kirin 950 SoC has entered the rumor mill earlier this year and now its specs leaked online via Chinese website Mobile-Dad. Similar to its siblings, the Kirin 950 packs a few ARM cores,  next to a next-gen Mali graphics processing unit that promises to offer quite a punch compared to the rather average graphics performance offered by all existing Kirin chipsets.

These are the highlights of the Huawei Kirin 950 SoC:

  • Compute cores: four ARM Cortex-A53 (frequency not mentioned) and four ARM Cortex-A72 up to 2.4 GHz
  • Graphics processing unit: ARM Mali T880
  • Memory support: dual-channel LPDDR4 with 25.6 GB/s bandwidth
  • Storage support: UFS 2.0, eMMC 5.1, SD 4.1 (UHS-II)
  • Camera and video: dual ISP (42 MP), native 10-bit 4K Main10 HEVC&VP9 de-/encoding
  • Audio: Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP
  • Connectivity: dual-SIM LTE Cat. 10, MI-MIMO WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.2 Smart, USB 3.0, NFC

This new chip is expected to launch inside a Huawei smartphone later this year, but it is possible to see third party phone makers using it as well. We will get back to the Kirin 950 SoC as soon as the official information comes out, so stay tuned.
