Huawei Kirin 950 chipset to be unveiled next month?
posted by Alan F. / Sep 17, 2015, 7:00 AM
The chip will be made using TSMC's 16nm process and will feature four Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A 53 cores using the big.LITTLE architecture. Maximum clock speed is 2.4GHz and the chip carries a Mali-T880 GPU. There is support for LPDDR4 dual channel RAM, dual cameras (up to 42MP) and a Tensilica Hi-Fi 4 independent audio DSP is on board.The Kirin 950 also supports Cat 10 LTE.
The Kirin 950 chipset recently scored a single-core tally of 1906 on GeekBench, with a multi-core score of 6096. That tops the GeekBench results of 1486 and 4970 respectively, earned by the Exynos 7420. The latter is the chipset found on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge.
Could of been in Nexus, but Google wants to tarnish the Nexus line these days, even drag LG and Huawei's name in the mud.

Kirin chips are being blocked by US govt. Its not for no reason that all US release Huawei phones don't use Kirin Chips.

OK is there proof of your claim that the U.S. has blocked Kirin / Mediatek and an explanation for why? Why would they not do that for Enyxos? While there are software concerns, this has nothing to do with hardware so don't mix those up. The Chinese phones have repeatedly been shown to feature backdoors in their software. Anything coming with software other than AOSP should be considered a risk, but most customers (especially US ones) don't really care.

US is spying more than anyone, so first they should save others from theirself by putting ban on own stuff. After that we will discuss about china or any other. I will give plenty of explanation after that

One bad chip(that isn't nearly as bad as its made out to be) and its the end of the world for you guys. Then Samsung manages to make one good chip finally(that throttles 40% and has heating problems that are not complained about because samsung can never do anything wrong) and Samsung is king of the market? This sort of attitude is absurd and ridiculous.

those chip wont be ready until 2016 so you are wrong Carlemillward. Also in 2016 offering from Exynos and Qualcomm will most probably beat this.
