The Kirin 659 shows up in many Huawei and Honor phones, but it’s getting long in the tooth. HiSilicon is reportedly working on a followup, the Kirin 710, which as its less than subtle name suggests will be a competitor to the Snapdragon 710.
The new chip will feature Cortex-A73 cores and will be built on a 12 nm process. For comparison, Qualcomm’s chip is has A75-based Kryo cores and is built on a 10 nm process.
The first phone to use a Kirin 710 chipset is likely to be the Huawei nova 3. It will have a tall 19.5:9 screen and a dual camera. This phone is code named “Paris” and Huawei has a couple of others in the works (PRA-AL00 and PRA-TL00, which just went through the 3C).
Huawei expects to ship over 140 million phones this year, of which half will be mid-rangers.
A moment of silence for everyone who bought the P20 Lite. Unfortunately, I bought the Mate 10 Lite which doesn't even have a gyroscope so I can't laugh. Still pretty satisfied with my device though, works well, no slow downs, and that GPU Turbo Boost...
honor play only 300 dollars in China，with 970 which perform as 845 after getting gpu turbo
A73 and a53 Are cheaper... so They will compete just fine, just in very different price gategory!
