Huawei P9 Max Spotted Running Kirin 950 As Benchmarking Scores Impress


Looks like Huawei P9 Max is going to be an upcoming gigantic sized variant of the company’s upcoming smartphone lineup and from the looks of the leaked benchmarks, it is going to pack impressive components underneath its hood.

Huawei P9 Max AnTuTu Benchmarking Scores Wrecks The Competition – Kirin 950 Definitely Going To Be Present Inside

According to a Chinese source, Huawei P9 Max is going to be sporting a massive 6.2 inch QHD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) and while the score you are about to see from AnTuTu is much lower than the score obtained by Huawei Mate 8 in our previous reported leak, it is still sufficient to overwhelm the competition. Given below are the image and comparison score details against the remaining chipsets present in Android powered smartphones right now, which happen to be none other than Exynos 7420 and Snapdragon 810.

AnTuTu benchmarking comparisons 
Kirin 950 (present in Huawei P9 Max)73759
Kirin 950 (present in Huawei Mate 8)82945
Exynos 742069700
Snapdragon 81061499

Despite the fact that Huawei Mate 8 was able to score much higher, we also have to keep in mind that the smartphone has a resolution of 1080p, which will obviously put less stress on the processor and GPU, which is a Mali-T880 (with four GPU cores). If these benchmarking scores were not sufficient for you, then a Geekbench leak reported by us shows how Kirin 950 is able to make short work of both Exynos 7420 and Snapdragon 810 in both the single and multi-core test results.

As for the specifications of Kirin 950, they have been posted below:

  • 4 x Cortex-A72 cores running at a speed of 2.53GHz
  • 4 x Cortex-A53 cores running at a speed of 1.80GHz

Previously, we were under the impression that the clock speeds of Cortex-A72 were lower, but thankfully, users will be able to get more performance out of them thanks to the higher clock speed. Additionally, the chipset also features the following.

  • ARM Mali-T880MP4 GPU (features four GPU cores)
  • 6 LTE modem, with 300Mbps as its maximum download speed and 50Mbps being its maximum uploading speed
  • i5 co-processor

Furthermore, there will be dedicated DSP audio co-processor called a Tensilica Hi-Fi 4 DSP, which will deliver high quality audio. Kirin 950 will also be providing support for dual-channel LPDDR4 RAM, UFS 2.0, and eMMC 5.1 storage, and just so you know, these happen to be the latest version amongst their respective categories.

Before we forget, smartphone camera aficionados are going to have the time of their lives with future Huawei handsets because Kirin 950 will also support up to a 42 MP camera sensors. However, from what we know, the upcoming Huawei Mate 8 is going to be sport a 16MP rear shooter, so it will definitely be a while before we can see camera sensors of this magnitude present in mobile devices.

As for Huawei P9 Max, are you excited to see how this handset will fare against the competition? Let us know your thoughts.
