Later this year, Huawei will extend the range of SoC copyright belonging to the family of Kirin. Assortment increase by two mobile systems – Kirin Kirin 940 and 950, which will be characterized by very similar technical specification. It is possible that one of them will make its debut with the new Google smartphone's signature logo. Both units (Kirin Kirin 940 and 950) with a co-processor i7 will use big.LITTLE architecture developed by ARM, which means that Huawei has decided to use the main and auxiliary cores that will be activated for less demanding tasks. This treatment will result in lower demand for energy. 8-core Kirin 940 is equipped with four main cores based on ARM architecture Cortex-A72 with a maximum clock frequency of up to 2.2 GHz and quad-core ARM Cortex-auxiliary A53. Hi-Silicon Kirin is also a unit of 950 eight-core, which is composed of four Cortex-A72 cores clocked single core 2.4 GHz of up to and four Cortex-A53. For the graphics in Hi-Silicon Kirin 940 will be responsible Mali- T860 integrated chip, which in relation to ARM Mali- T628 will be more efficient about forty-five percent. The powerful SoC from Huawei is expected to deliver graphics performance Mali-T880, which will offer a 1.8-fold increase in terms of Mali-T760, which is used to date, and at the same time consume 40 percent less energy. New SoC systems dedicated to the highest quality to mobile devices will be able to handle decoding and video recording in 4K resolution, dual-channel RAM operating memory LPDDR4 type (capacity of 25.6GB / s) 5.1 eMMC memory / SD 4.1 (UHS-II), dual band wireless module working in a standard ac, Bluetooth 4.2, contactless proximity technology (NFC), and USB 3.0. For fast transmission of data at the Hi-Silicon will be responsible Kirin 940 LTE modem (cat.7) providing data download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upstream rates of up to 100 Mbps. Hi-Silicon Kirin while 950 will be equipped with LTE modem (cat.10), which allows through aggregation of the three strands download speeds of up to 450 Mbps. Hi-Silicon Kirin 940 should debut in the third quarter of this year, and the launch of Hi-Silicon Kirin 950 we expect in the fourth quarter of 2015. Source: gizmochina
