HiSilicon Kirin 620 vs MediaTek MT8161 vs HiSilicon Kirin 935

HiSilicon Kirin 620

► remove from comparison  Kirin 620

The HiSilicon Kirin 620 is an ARM-based octa core SoC for mid-range smartphones. It was announced at the end of 2014 and features eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.2 GHz (max.). Furthermore, the processor integrates a ARM Mali-450 MP4 graphics card, an LPDDR3 memory controller, an LTE Cat.4 modem, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. The chip is manufactured in 28nm and relatively power efficient.

MediaTek MT8161

► remove from comparison

The MediaTek MT8161 is an ARM based entry-level to mid-range SoC for (Android based) tablets. It offers four ARM Cortex-A53 processor cores (quad-core) that are clocked with up to 1.3 GHz. Furthermore, an ARM Mali-720 graphics card, a LPDDR3 memory controller (e.g., accessing 1 GB in the Lenovo Tab 2 A8-50), Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 802.11 b/g/n are integrated in the SoC.

The performance is situated in the entry level of 2015 and often similar to the Kirin 910T (see benchmark below).

HiSilicon Kirin 935

► remove from comparison

The HiSilicon Kirin 935 is an ARM-based octa-core SoC (system-on-a-chip) for smartphones and tablets. It was launched in the first half of 2015. It integrates two quad-core clusters of Cortex-A53 cores (big.LITTLE). The performance cluster clocks at up to 2.2 GHz, the power saving cluster at up to 1.5 GHz. Furthermore, the SoC integrates a ARM Mali-T628 MP4 graphics card and LTE Cat. 6 modem. The SoC is manufactured in 28nm and thanks to the small Cortex-A53 cores also suited for smaller smartphones.
