Huawei's new K3V3 chip brings octa-core silicon to the Chinese OEM
According to these Chinese tipsters, Huawei has devised a way for the silicon to auto charge when running at a high temperature, and cools the component as well. This increases the standby time of the device. Earlier this year, Huawei CEO Richard Yu had said that the company would release an octa-core K3V3 processor, based on ARM’s Cortex A15 architecture, during the second half of this year. The chip will be clocked at 1.8GHz. The Mali GPU comes along for the ride, built using the 28nm process.
We most likely will see the octa-core K3V3 in the sequel to the Huawei Ascend Mate, once the largest screened smartphone in the industry with a 6.3 inch glass.
