Huawei to launch three new SoCs

Written by Fudzilla staff



64-bit octa-core is one of them

Chinese smartphone giant Huawei is gearing up to release three new SoC chips this year, including its first 64-bit part.

The flagship chip will apparently feature four Cortex A57 and four Cortex A53 cores, making it the first Huawei octa-core and, depending on when it launches, the world’s first 64-bit octa-core, unless Samsung gets there first.

There’s another octa-core in the works, sans 64-bit support. The chip will feature four Cortex A15 and four Cortex A7 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration.

Next up, Huawei has a quad-core Cortex A9 part for mid range devices, which is rather surprising since Mediatek, Rockchip and some other players are moving away from Cortex A9 cores and embracing A12 cores in the mid-end. Nvidia is an exception, with its upcoming Tegra 4i.

All the chips are manufactured using the 28nm process and they support TD-LTE and FDD-LTE modems. We are not sure whether this means fully integrated LTE, as the teaser posted by Huawei exec Richard Yu did not include much info.
