It seems that Huawei will soon present its new mobile chipset, which the company is developing for some time. Huawei CEO Mr. Richard Yo confirmed from his post in the Chinese social network Weibo, that the development of two Hisilicon processors had been completed which means that Huawei will soon offer a new quad-core processor (28nm chipset based on the ARM Cortex-A9) and two eight-core (Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7), one of which will boast a 64-bit architecture. Both processors have GSM/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/TD-LTE and FDD-LTE modems.
The octa-core model (likely the K3V3) features the usual quad Cortex-A15 plus quad Cortex-A7 big.LITTLE combo (as implemented by Samsung Exynos 5 Octa); and there’s also a new quad-core Cortex-A9 model (likely the K3V2 Pro), which succeeds the 40nm K3V2 that features the same architecture. However, it is not clear whether the first chip will have the opportunity to work simultaneously on all eight cores but both chips come with a multi-mode LTE modem that will also handle both WCDMA and China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA radios.
Huawei will unveil its first 64-bit chipset this year, Yu said in another different status update, but the message was deleted shortly thereafter. The Huawei CEO also officially announced that the company is entering the 64-bit chipset era this year.
