    lol how does one get to SD652 when TENAA lists 2GHz 8 cores?
    It’s clearly not SD652 ,that one goes to 1.8GHz and it’s very likely a Kirin 650.

      Why can’t the 652 go to 2ghz? It’s basically the 650 with two more A72 cores.

        You might be confused so let me repeat it, this phone is using Kirin 650 not a Snapdragon.
        SD652 is not commercialized at 2GHz and if it were, the phone would melt, 1.8GHz is already pushing it with 4 big cores.

      The fact is that they release some phones for china only, some others internationally, others with honor branding… Still it’s a huge amount of phones, but at least this is not the 5th flagship announced in the last 2 weeks like “someone we know”! ?

    It’s unfortunate that they’re sticking with a smaller battery, but hopefully it won’t make too much of a difference.
