Huawei announces Kirin 620 processor

Yesterday we reported that the Chinese smartphone maker Huawei would present the first company 64-bit processor designed for use in smartphones. The smartphone company has kept its promise – the new chip is here and it carries the Kirin 620 brand name featuring eight Cortex-A53 cores. It also joins other Huawei smartphone processors such as the HiSilicon K3V2 and Kirin 920/925 although we have to say that these are just 32-bit solutions.

The new Kirin 620 runs at 1.2 GHz and includes Mali-T450MP4 graphics. The chip is built on 28 nm tech process and supports LPDDR3 memory as well as up to 13 MP cameras, ZLS and HDR. The rest of the specs include support for LTE, 1080p video encoding and decoding at up to 30 FPS, H.264, TDS, HSPA+ and more. This makes the new chip comparable to solutions like Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 and MediaTek MT6752.

Devices based on the new Kirin 620 processor should be on the market any time soon.
