More details are outed about the possible use of the Kirin 935 SoC on the Huawei P8
Just a few days ago, we told you that there is speculation that instead of being powered by the Kirin 930 SoC, the Huawei P8 would be powered by the Kirin 935 chipset. Both are home grown by Huawei, but obviously there are changes between the two. First, we should point out that the Huawei Mediapad X2 features the Kirin 930. But the latter offers quad Cortex A53 cores and quad Cortex A53e cores which just might not produce flagship-worthy performance.

Another change between the two chips deals with clock speed. On the Kirin 930, we are talking about 2GHz while the Kirin 935 offers speeds as fast as 2.2GHz. And graphics performance is expected to be boosted with an upgraded GPU. Overall, performance of the Kirin 935 SoC is supposedly much better than what you would see with the Kirin 930 chip set. Battery life, on the other hand, might not hold up as well with the Kirin 935 SoC.

The Huawei P8 and Huawei P8 Lite are both expected to be unveiled on April 15th in London. The latest specs have the Huawei P8 carrying a 5-inch display with resolution of 1080 x 1920. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of storage that can be expanded with the use of the available microSD slot. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP respectively, and a 2520mAh battery keeps the lights on. There is suport for 4G dual SIM dual standby.

The P8 will be 6.4mm thin and feature a metal and glass body. The price is expected to be the equivalent of $480 USD. There is speculation about a more expensive version of the phone, the Platinum Edition, which is rumored to be priced at over $800 USD. This model will allegedly come with sapphire glass on the front and back of the handset.

Thanks for the tip!
