For the better part of the last 12 months, almost all of Huawei's top-end phones were launched with their home-made K3V2 chipset. Sadly, the chip is simply not fast enough to match up to its rivals. Even the Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 pulls ahead of it with ease, and that part can be blamed on the old ARM Cortex A9 CPU architecture based CPU cores in the said SoC.
Well, it looks like the rumored Huawei K3V3 (based on the ARM Cortex A15 CPU architecture) is nowhere near ready as the Chinese phone maker's next device, the Ascend P6S, is allegedly powered by an updated K3V2+ chipset. Once again, Huawei's solution is seriously underpowered compared to competition, with the leaked AnTuTu score lying in the less-than-impressive 22,000 range. And that can be attributed to the fact that Huawei didn't move beyond Cortex A9 for the updated chip. Anyhow, the Ascend P6S is expected to make a debut sometime in December. Unless it gets any slimmer while offering a ton of other new features, we fail to grasp the device would get consumers excited in any way.
