ARM confirms quad-core Cortex-A9 for Huawei Ascend P6S

Just a day after an ARM exec
confirmed Samsung's 64-bit Exynos
processor and even hinted for 128-
bit chips in two years, the company
has leaked yet another product of
one of its partners. This time it's
Huawei who suffered from the ARM
indiscretion.
Huawei Ascend P6S has recently
entered our rumor mill, but so far
the information about its chipset
has been quite controversial. After
Huawei's president confirmed the
existence of the Ascend P6S, he said
it will feature an octa-core
processor. Then yesterday new
details pointed at quad-core
big.Little SoC instead.
Now we know this quad-core chipset
will be slightly different. The CPU
designer ARM has decided to
showcase a device that looks exactly
the same as the Huawei Ascend P6,
but runs on a new Huawei chipset
called HiSilicon Kirin910. According
to the product description it
features a quad-core Cortex-A9
processor and Mali-450 graphics.
This new Kirin910 is promised to
provide "perfectly smooth gaming
experience".
It isn't hard to guess the showcased
device is the upcoming Huawei
Ascend P6S. If indeed all of this is
true, then the new P6S won't quite
be the upgrade we were looking for.
We guess with all those leaks flying
it recently we aren't that far from an
official announcement. There's no
telling on when exactly that might
happen, though.
