It’s only been a few days since Huawei introduced their flagship devices P9 is Huawei and Huawei P9 Plus. Along with the new devices we’ve seen the new processor Kirin 955, the performance of which was tested yesterday in benchmarks. However, the network is already beginning to appear about 960 Kirin.
Kirin 955 is the most high-performance processor from Huawei, although it is just an overclocked version of the Kirin 950. But even with the increased clock speed of the new chipset is inferior so “monsters“ a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890, which left far behind the processor.
The only competing processor for the Kirin 955 became Helio X20, but MediaTek has released an enhanced version of the chipset – Helio X25, so that even in this case, the processor went uncompetitive. That is why the game comes Kirin 960, which is close to production.
Famous Chinese analyst, Ban Dzhiyutang, published a post on Weibo, according to which even though in the process and will be a number of changes aimed at improving performance, that is not all. He noted that the biggest changes relate to the network that most likely alludes to the integration of the modem as it is done with its Qualcomm chipsets.
Dzhiyutang Ban also said he already has new specifications of SoC, but, unfortunately, did not disclose them. Well, we will wait for receipt of new details and hope for their imminent appearance.
