According to a fresh rumor about the new smartphone Huawei Honor Note 9, the novelty is not destined to become the flagship. The fact is that instead of the top-end mobile chipset HiSilicon Kirin 965 there is supposedly expected a slower Kirin 670.
The last SoC has not yet been officially announced. It is expected that it has the following specifications:
- 4 core ARM Cortex-A53 64-bit with a clock speed of 2.0 GHz.
- Integrated graphics accelerator ARM Mali-G72 MP4 (also 4 cores) with unknown frequency.
- The process technology is 12-nm.
It is reported that Huawei Honor Note 9 will receive 6 GB of RAM LPDDR4. In our opinion, in these rumors there is an obvious disconnect concerning the parameters of the Kirin 670:
- Frankly weak CPU.
- Quite a powerful GPU.
- Memory controller supporting at least 6 GB of dual-channel LPDDR4 RAM.
Even MediaTek with its sometimes strange developments does not release anything like that, let alone Qualcomm and Samsung. Do not forget that even the Kirin 655 has eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores, so it will be strange if Huawei “sells down” a new processor.
Do not forget that Huawei Honor Note 9 should get a large 6.6-inch screen with a resolution of QHD 1440 × 2560 pixels, which only a powerful single-chip system can “swing”. So we suggest not to trust these new rumors.
Of the other characteristics of Huawei Honor Note 9, which are now spoken on the network, it is also worth mentioning a serious battery with a capacity of 5100 mAh and an Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system “out of the box.” It is assumed that the novelty will be shown in the first days of September at the international exhibition IFA 2017 in Berlin.
