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.
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.
