Chinese manufacturer Huawei just announced its newest processor for mid-range devices. The Huawei Kirin 710 chipset is the very first 12nm processor from the company.
The company released its Kirin 970 chipset late last year which was only 10nm, however the Kirin 970 is aimed at high-end smartphones.
Kirin 710 chipset is the successor to the Kirin 659 that has appeared in many of the company’s mid-range smartphones.
The new chipset is much smaller than the previous Kirin 659 chipset which was 16nm. The smaller size means there should be a significant improvement in power consumption and performance.
Huawei Kirin 710 Chipset Specifications:
Huawei packed a total of four ARM Cortex-A73 cores that clocks at 2.2GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 that clocks at 1.7GHz.
They also added an ARM Mali G5 GPU which is approximately 1.3 times the performance of the Kirin 659 chipset and also delivers a much better energy consumption.
The Kirin 710 single-core performance is 75% higher than the Kirin 659 while the multi-core performance gets a 68% percent performance increase.
According to the company, the Image signal processor and digital signal processor have also seen improvements and enhanced performance of camera modules in low-light conditions.
The new Kirin 710 offers support for Face Unlock, LTE Cat.12 and Cat. 13, 4G VoLTE, dual-SIM and scene recognition.
