Huawei’s Kirin 950 Has A High Version, Spotted On GeekBench

Huawei announced the Kirin 950 chipset late last year. The chip featured the powerful Cortex A72 cores, making it one of the fastest available SoCs of its time. However, since then, we have come across pretty good chips like Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 which are likely to beat 950 in terms of performance. In fact, in the previous Geekbench tests, Mate 8 powered by Kirin 950 couldn’t cross the 2000 mark in the single-core test.

But looks like there will be a special high-end version of the chip. Today, an “unKnown HUAWEI” device was spotted on the benchmarking website, Geekbench, with significant performance improvements. The device managed to score more than 2000 points in the single-core test.

Even in the multi-core test, the device managed to score 7239 points which is better than the deca-core Helio x20 (leaked score). The specifications of the processor inside the device is similar to Kirin 950 with four Cortex A72 cores and Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

So, this could be a special high-end edition of the Kirin 950, probably Kirin 955. However, increasing the frequncy of each cores inside may not be the ideal solution. For example, with increased frequency, we wouldn’t want the device to overheat. So, it would be interesting to see where Huawei plans to use this high-end version.
