First details on Huawei Kirin 920 SoC

Chinese web sources have shared information on an upcoming SoC by Huawei. The chip is called Kirin 920 and promises to be a monster under the cover of your new smartphone.

The Kirin 920 SoC will come with eight processing cores on 28 nm technology. The cores can be divided in two clusters – the first one will be based on ARM Cortex-A7 technology and will handle simple tasks, while the other one will come with the ARM Cortex-A15 architecture and will handle complex calculations. Both clusters will be united by big.LITTLE technology and will also include Mali-628 MP4 graphics and a dual-channeled DDR3-800 memory controller. The chip will also support resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 pixels and up to 32 MP cameras. LTE will be supported as well and preliminary tests suggest that the Kirin 920 is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801.

Not surprisingly a Huawei smartphone will be the first to use this chip. The upcoming Ascend D3 will be the first one to feature the Kirin 920 architecture.
