Yesterday, Huawei announced the Nova 5 family of smartphones. Moreover, the vanilla model of the new series ushers a new in-house chipset – the Kirin 810. Also, the folks at Antutu got a hold of the Nova 5 and started testing it. The charts, however, were painted by a pretty nice picture of the midrange Kirin.
Qualcomm’s current best midrange SoC, the Kirin 710 is compared with the Snapdragon 730. The comparison shows that Kirin 710 is both a prominent leap for the in-house middle tier and also a concern for Qualcomm’s quick attention on the segment.
