New Huawei Ascend P6S, sporting enhanced K3V2+ processor, gets benchmarked
Stuffed with an improved home-grown quad-core K3V2+ processor, the Huawei Ascend P6S is a enhanced version of the Chinese manufacturer's Ascend P6 handset. The CPU still employs Cortex-A9 cores while the Mali450 GPU is faster. The revamped model just finished going through the AnTuTu benchmark site and finished with a score of  22,270. Not exactly the scores we see with Qualcomm Snapdragon silicon, but not bad either for a mid-range, value phone. And while the clock speed isn't listed, it is believed that the processor was running at 1.6GHz.

The Huawei Ascend P6S is expected to be launched at the end of next month or early in December. That should give the handset some time to be included in the holiday plans for some procrastinating shoppers. The K3V2+ is said to improve upon the performance of the K3V2 processor by 50% to 80% using only half of the same energy consumption.

It's good enough. I feel almost any processor that came out in the past year is fast enough for what android can through at it. GPU is what is way more important now.

If it gets significantly better battery life it would be okay. The problem is the CPU isn't the only thing that needs power.

Indeed. Displays are sucking power, but at one time processors were very power hungry. Much more than the display itself. Performance per watt has improved tremendously since then, while displays haven't matched the pace. I imagine its a lot trickier of an issue...

Sharp has a new type of display their calling IGZO, its supposed to help with the power consumption.

Alan, that is not a mid range considering that it employs premium build and record thinness..and that it is actually Huawei's top gun phone.
