Most likely Cortex A72 based high Freq cores rather than A57 based ones in Exynos 7420. A72 is much better at the same power envelope as A57 targets.
Atleast Mediatek wisely decided to stay away from A57 totally and put full resources on their Deca Core X20 which contains 2xA72 + 4xA53 + 4xA53.
Good job Huawei in bringing the A72 cores up front to the market.
Still slower single core operation.
Hmm hope Quallcomm improve on this.
I want to see a benchmark I'm a phone not in a nitrogen cooled rig.

Anonymous, 03 Nov 2015Byebye SnapdragonYou choose Huawei over snapdragon? Well goodluck.
if it only would have GPU with similar straght compared with competition
Qualcomm: "Shi*, get an engineer to glue on 2 more cores and leak a brand new 830 that we just invented this minute!"
830 GeekBench scores arrive on GSMArena and get 200+ comments
Qualcomm lives to fight another day
Impressive achievement for huawei given their later entry in the premium segment and their cheaper prices, but I'm doubtful of the SD820, it'll probably do much better than that.
