While Huawei is still hesitant to officially reveal the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor, which will be used in its upcoming flagship smartphones, the results of this processor have been leaked on the AnTuTu and Geekbench performance tests, allowing us to have a first look at the performance of this expected processor.
Let’s start with the Mali-G78 graphics processor built into this processor. He scored more than 287,000 points ahead of the current Android champion, and here we mean the Snapdragon 865 + processor in the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, which scored 258,171 points. However, it is a little behind the result achieved by the upcoming Exynos 1080 processor from Samsung in terms of graphics.
Huawei has a head start, it is assumed that the Huawei Mate 40 Series lineup will be launched this year, while the Exynos 1080 processor is unlikely to arrive until next year (it depends on when Vivo will launch the Vivo X60 phone, according to the prominent Chinese Ice Universe leak. ).
Featuring NOH-NX9, which is expected to be the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, it has a screen that has a refresh rate of 90Hz, it has 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Moreover, this phone is also pre-installed with Android 10 and EMUI 10 interface.
With regard to the central processor, new performance tests revealed to us that the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor includes a large Cortex-A77 cores with a frequency of 3.13GHz, which is a frequency higher than the frequency of the cores in the Snapdragon 865 + processor that currently leads the way when it comes to the frequency of the cores, it includes Cores have a frequency of 3.09GHz. This superiority of the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor at the core frequency is partly due to the new manufacturing technology, 5nm.
Cortex-A77 kernel is rather old, however, it has been used in some processors this year. However, this is still an upgrade from the outgoing HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G processor, which promises 20 percent higher performance compared to the Cortex-A76 cores.
The HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor surpasses the current Snapdragon processors in single-core performance and multi-core performance, although we should see the first smartphones equipped with the Snapdragon 875 processor in the first quarter of next year, which may upset the balance of power in the opposite direction.
