About Kirin 710A:
The HiSilicon Kirin 710A is an ARM-based mid-range Octa-Core-SoC manufactured in 14nm FinFET and is also the first one for the company to be manufactured by Shanghai-based Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (SMIC).
It was announced mid-2020 and contains 8 processor cores including 4x Cortex-A73 at up to 2 GHz, 4x Cortex-A53 at up to 1.7 GHz, BigLITTLE, an ARM Mali G51 MP4, a dual-channel LPDDR4 memory controller, and an LTE radio (600 Mbps down, 150 Mbps up).
Therefore, the CPU part is similar to the Kirin 960 and 970 (both higher clocked), but the graphics card is a lot slower.
