Let’s start from the beginning. First and foremost, Huawei announced their 64-bit Kirin 620 octa-core processor about a week ago. This Chinese tech giant will hold an event on December 16th where they’ll announce Glory 6 Plus and Glory 4X (could also be called Honor instead of Glory, depending on the market) handsets. A third device announcement is also possible, though we don’t have any details regarding that at the moment. Huawei’s Glory 4X handset will be powered by the newly announced Kirin 620 CPU, that’s is basically a fact at this point considering Huawei already listed the device for pre-sale, and it seems like that handset just popped up on AnTuTu benchmarks.
If you take a look at the image below this article, you’ll see the whole AnTuTu listing, which is basically identical to what we already know about this handset. The codename of the device is “Che2-TL00” and according to the listing the handset will feature a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 1GB of RAM (though it seems like the 2GB variant will also be available). Huawei’s Kirin 620 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz will power on this handset along with Mali-450 MP4 graphics chip. 13-megapixel camera will be located at the back of this device and the 5-megapixel snapper will be available on the front. Android 4.4.2 will come pre-installed on the Glory 4X with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top of it. That is everything we were able to find out from this AnTuTu listing.
Regarding the SoC, this is Huawei’s mid-range processor offering, think of it as Huawei’s Snapdragon 410. This is a really promising processor, but we’ll see how will it perform in the end. The chip is made using the 28nm process and is based on the Cortex-A53 architecture. The chip supports LTE connectivity as well and the GPU and other details have been listed in the previous paragraph. Either way, Huawei will announce this handset on December 16th, which is only 5 days away, so stay tuned for that. What are your thoughts on all this? Do you think this chip will offer good performance in the end?
