The Kirin 920 SoC has been made official and will be featured on the new smartphone Mulan
Only 2 months back, Huawei’s Senior VP announced that it has plans to release a brand new flagship device which will be strong enough to compete with others due to its “stunning, unique features”. This phone is going to be made out of plastic and will feature an octa-core processor and we already suspect that it is going to be pricier than rest of the company’s offerings. Soon after this announcement was made, a new Huawei top-tier device bearing the codename “Mulan” was spotted in AnTuTu’s database and the smartphone also came up once again on the blogosphere.
The details revealed on the recent spotting of the phone show that the Kirin 920 octa-core chip has been made official by Huawei and this is going to be featured on Mulan; being one of the strongest selling points of the phone.
The chipset is made up of four Cortex-A15 cores with frequencies between 1.7 and 2.0 GHz, coupled with four Cortex-A7 cores that can run at clock speeds of 1.3-1.6 GHz. A Mali-T628 graphics chip is also going to be on board and the complete package is going to offer support for LTE Cat 6, SGLTE / CSFB, as well as VoLTE. Kirin will extend support for resolutions of 2560 x 1600 which is enough to create QHD smartphones in the foreseeable future.
