That Guy, 17 Oct 2016Nope, it will have an eight core G71, also did i mentioned that although the screen resolution... moreI doubt if the screen resolution will stay at 1080 as rumours are suggesting. I Believe both versions (the Manhattan and long island will have QHD screens) The only difference being that the curved screen and the fact that the Long island will only be available in the 256gb storage option while the Long island will be available in the 64, 128 and 256GB options.
After all it makes no sense that Huawei will make a very premium device with a curved screen and QHD screen and opt only to sell it in their home country when they are seriously trying to break into American markets and be a dominant force
The kirin 960 will use a Mali G-71 GPU in a MP8 configuration with support for full 4k video. It currently outperforms other chips except the Apple A-10 fusion chip which is to be expected as nobody outperforms Apple chips. The real question tho is if it will still stay in the lead when the Snapdragon 830 and the latest Exynos or even the Mediatek Helio-X30 is released?
Stanley, 14 Oct 2016The Mali G-71 GPU is scalable up to 32cores so anything less that MP16 will be unacceptable. H... moreI prefer it to have 8 core, for me sustained performance will make much more sense than having a huge computational capacity for a short period of time before it throttles itself to oblivion.
Novage, 14 Oct 2016The Kirin 960 Will have Mali t880mp8 i think. It's too early for g71Nope, it will have an eight core G71, also did i mentioned that although the screen resolution will stay at 1080P it will finally be able to record in 4K?
HTC AND SONY are better? seriously ???? dude are you a bezel fan? look at google pixel phones, plain ugly with huge bezels. Sony OMG. get ya walk on. Who would have thought huawei would make it so far!!!
Assefa, 14 Oct 2016you cant say that if another company spends on R&D to make displays it would be more expen... moreSamsung has already incurred the fixed cost of r&d to make their edged displays, so they can sell them for cheaper than Sharp, who will have to make back the expenditures from their sales. This is common sense and everyone who knows the slightest thing about how business or the economy works understands this.
And usually these things are leaked, such as their prototype display already has been. Like how Samsung's curved display was seen in their patents as early as 2013. Again, you have no basis for thinking Sharp has any role here.

Huawei is growing very fast and 3rd biggest in world

Thier only competition is Exynos. If Huawei just release thier source code for ROM development, Kirin phones will easily become a better choice than Snapdragon for everybody.

sharp can start making edge displays as early as tomorrow, why? you and i are unaware of their business plans and the time and effort they have already put into projects when you can objectively show me that this ill be waiting
Coolstan, 14 Oct 2016Exactly. If they use MP12 they won't have any competitionThe Mali G-71 GPU is scalable up to 32cores so anything less that MP16 will be unacceptable. Huawei please take note
Coolstan, 14 Oct 2016Go back to sleep you don't have any valid point. Goodnight Rage of a China brand fanboy... Cant blame you dude.
