Huawei's CEO Yu introduces three new processors including a 64-bit octa-core chip
Chinese manufacturer Huawei has three new processors on the way. According to CEO Richard Yu, there will be one quad-core and a pair of octa-core chips. One of them will be an octa-core chip with 64-bits. The executive outed the silicon on his Weibo page. The 64 bit-processor might be an octa-core, but using the big.LITTLE architecture, it will have just one set of 4 cores active at one time. The chipset will feature a Cortex A-57 and a Cortex A-53. The latter will be used for light housekeeping while the former does the heavy lifting.

Also coming from Huawei is a quad-core chip based on the ARM Cortex A-9 and is produced using the 28nm manufacturing process. Another octa-core processor coming from Huawei is also based on the big.LITTLE architecture with a Cortex A-15 and a Cortex A-7. Only one set of four cores can be active at a time with the former used when doing heavy duty jobs while the latter is employed for small, lightweight tasks. Both of these SoCs include GSM/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/TD-LTE and FDD-LTE modems.

Last year, MediaTek introduced the first true octa-core chip, the MT6592, which allows all eight A-7 cores to be active at one time.
