"It is possible that it uses a little.BIG or similar layout"

Isn't it big.LITTLE?

Yes it is.

Do we really need octa core devices? Not even mainsteam computers have octa cores. Heck, none of the Intel or AMD chips have 8 true cores. Unless maybe you are willing to pay $1000+ US.

It's an attempt to have both performance and power savings. High end CPU's today aren't as concerned with power usage. Also, desktop CPU's have hyper threading. My opinion is that having 2 A15's and 2A7's should be great. I think they should be more focused on writing out the code better and forming the architecure more efficiently to get better battery life.
