The Kirin 810 is 20% more energy-efficient as compared to the previous Gen Kirin 710 Octa-Core processor. The processor is coupled with ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU that offers superior performance than the Adreno 618 used in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730.

For Honor 9x and 9X Pro, there will be 6 GB /8 GB of  DDR4 ram to ensure lag-free user experience. Huawei is also planning to unveil the EMUI 10.0 with GPU turbo Boost 3.0 to provide better gaming performance.
