The upcoming Honor 30S had already been confirmed to be the first smartphone that will be driven by the latest Kirin 820 5G SoC.
This chip, according to recent reports, is said to feature Cortex A76 CPUs which will be coupled with the Mali G77 GPU along with upgraded NPU and ISP.
Today, Chinese news outlet ITHome has even revealed how the upcoming Kirin 820 SoC will stand against other recent flagship SoCs including the Snapdragon 855 and Kirin 980 on Geekbench 4.
Quite unexpectedly, the Kirin 820 impressively scores 3,490 points for it’s single-core performance test. That’s in fact higher than the scores attained by both the Kirin 980 and Snapdragon 855 SoCs which stood at 3,360 points and 3,450 points respectively.
Moreover, it’s multi-cores performance test has also achieved a commendable score of 11,200 points. This means that it’s multi-cores performance is expected to be higher than the Kirin 980 SoC, but on-par with the Snapdragon 855 SoC.
With that in mind, we can expect the Kirin 820 SoC to deliver an above average performance compared to other mid-ranger chips in the market.
Besides that, it’s also worth noting that the Kirin 820 will be a 5G-enabled chip which will allow the device to support both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G modes.
