The Huawei Honor brand has been pretty active recently, with a line of smartphones released in the last few months and many more to come yet. Huawei Honor promises to release a brand new smartphone at CES 2017 on January 3, and we have also seen talks of new smartphones under the Honor Prague series. One of these phones has apparently come up on Geekbench, giving us an insight into its specs.
The smartphone, the new Honor Prague, is codenamed Huawei PRA-LA1, and is perhaps the first of the two Prague devices we heard scant rumors about. The Geekbench appearance shows a mid-range smartphone with some interesting specs.
noob question: Does an Android ROM img contain full info on device specs/components/hardware somewhere apart from mentioning the SoC?— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) 26 December 2016
To the start off, the phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, There's a 3 GB RAM and the Kirin 655 processor, which is a mid-range chip. It is, however, an Octa-core configuration, with a clock rate of 1.7 GHz. It is a relatively new and power-efficient mid-range chip.
There were reports of there being a new Honor device with a 5.2 or 5.5 inches display. Judging from the specs shown here at Geekbench, the former seems the likelier case, with probably an HD display resolution.
The single core performance for the PRA-LA1 has a 793 score, whereas it scored 3301 on multi-core performance. This is at par with Huawei's popular mid-range from this year, the Huawei P9 Lite.
