Huawei P8 rumoured to sport Kirin 935 CPU under the hood – not Kirin 930

According to previous reports, the yet to be announced Huawei P8 will sport the Chinese firm’s HiSilicon Kirin 930 octa-core processor. A new report, however, is saying that the upcoming flagship will sport a slightly more powerful Kirin 930 CPU.


The news comes to us courtesy of Chinese-speaking Mobile-Dad. According to the site, the Huawei P8 will come with the slightly more powerful Kirin 935 instead of the Kirin 930. We know the Kirin 930 comes with four A53 cores and four A53e cores. Aside from being slightly more powerful, it is yet to be determined what the Kirin 935 has to offer. Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.

Other rumoured specs include a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (pixel density of 424 ppi), Sony’s IMX278 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), 3 GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner on the back. It is said to measure 144.9 x 71.9 x 6.6 mm. It is said to sport a metal chassis with angled edges. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with Huawei’s Emotion UI slapped on top.

So when will Huawei lift the lid on their next flagship? The Chinese firm will be hosting a press event on the 15th of April in London. The P8 is expected to make its debut at the event.
