The new 28nm chip runs at 1.2 GHz, has no less than 8 ARM cores and targets the mid-range segment of the market, but no devices powered by it have been announced yet.

Huawei unveiled a new chip yesterday, namely the eight-core Kirin 620. This 64-bit processor uses eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz, so one of its future competitors will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410.

Huawei Kirin 620 offers the following specs and features:

  • Architecture/Speed/Cores: eight 1.2 Ghz 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 cores with Mali-450 MP4 graphics
  • Memory: LPDDR3 RAM support
  • Display: video decoding up to 1080p@30 fps, encoding 1080p@30fps
  • Camera support: up to 13 MP, with HDR
  • Connectivity: Cat4 LTE, HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS

The Kirin 620 should provide about the same amount of processing power as the Qualcomm Dragon 410 which is already on the market. They both use the same Cortex-A53 core running at the same frequency although Huawei's chip has four extra cores. On the other hand, Qualcomm's SoC features Adreno 306 graphics, a better choice than the Mali-450 MP4.

There are no benchmark results available yet and Huawei did not mention anything about the first devices that will use the new octa-core Kirin 620 SoC.
