Huawei’s flagship “Mulan” showing an 8-core processor

Huawei is looking to make a dent with it’s upcoming flagship phone, code named “Mulan”. This isn’t your typical Snapdragon powered phone either, as it’s looking to pack an octa-core “Kirin” processor, with each core clocked at 1.3 GHz according to AnTuTu benchmarks.

The phone is also looking to pack a 4.9 inch, full HD 1920x1080p screen, which is really refreshing to see a flagship with less than 5 inches nowadays. We’re also treated with 3GB of RAM and a typical 16GB on board storage. Camera specs are unknown at the time.

We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?


The “Kirin” processor is shown compared to other processors on AnTuTu, which is only a millimetre shy of the Snapdragon 801 processor, which is still really fast. Only the Snapdragon 805 and Tegra K1 are above these two.


Huawei’s senior VP announced a while ago that they were working on a new flagship that would bring a set of “unique features”. The handset is also rumored to have an aluminium body, which makes it sound like this will be one appetizing smartphone.
