HiSilicon Kirin - The next big thing?

We got our hands on Huawei P9 and Huawei Honor 5c powered by HiSilicon Kirin 650 and HiSilicon Kirin 955 chipsets respectively and boy! we are impressed with the performance. Kirin chipsets are manufactured by a fabless semiconductor company called HiSilicon based in Shenzen, China. It also happens to be a subsidiary of Huawei.

Here are the brief specifications of both the chipsets:

Kirin 650:
  • 4 core Cortex A53 (2 GHz) + 4 core Cortex A53 (1.7 GHz) CPU
  • Mali-T830 MP2 GPU, 600 MHz
  • LTE Cat.6 (300Mbit/s)
Kirin 955:
  • 4 core Cortex A72 (2.5 GHz) + 4 core Cortex A53 (1.8 GHz) CPU
  • Mali-T880 MP4 GPU, 900 MHz
  • LTE Cat.6 (300Mbit/s)
  • USB 3.0
Huawei made a bold move by not sticking to the mainstream Snapdragon or Mediatek chipsets and we believe the move paid off quite well. Here is our experience with the Kirin chipsets: 
  • Power utilization is optimized, battery lasts long
  • Phones did not heat up despite heavy 3D gaming for a long time
  • Highly responsive software
  • Better cellular performance
HiSilicon is definitely got the goods, but can it be the next big thing?
