Huawei developing their own octa-core processor to rival MT6592
MediaTek was the very first system-on-chip supplier to develop an octa-core mobile SoC device that is capable of processing tasks within eight CPU cores. The True Octa-Core solution even pushed Qualcomm to start prepping their next generation processor and in the middle of the two giants, the company Huawei couldn’t resist not to get involved, so Xu Xin Quan, the President of Huawei just announced that with the next version of the Ascend P6 the company will launch their own octa-core processor as well. Unfortunately, for now it hasn’t been confirmed what kind of cores the new Huawei processor will have – Cortex-A7, Cortex-A9 or even Cortex-A15?
The updated version of K3V2 chipset that will be featured in the future Ascend P6S will boast octa-core capabilities and the chip will have an integrated 3G and extended battery life, as Quan leaked himself on his Weibo account. The Huawei K3V2 might be already old with its four CPU cores, as Huawei used Qualcomm’s chips in Windows Phone devices but its target seems to be to make as many components as possible in-house, so the new updated Huawei SoC in development is said to rival the MediaTek MT6592 perfectly.
Huawei is going to hold an event next month and that will finally shed light on many question- the Ascend P6S, the new octa-core processor as well as the device everyone’s currently talking about after the leaked photos in China on Weibo- the Huawei Glory 4 featuring the wold’s very first True Octa-Core solution MediaTek MT6592. If that’s the case, Glory 4 might be the last Huawei device featuring the Taiwan’s chip as the upcoming updated K3V2 will make its way to Huawei’s products in the future. And, as we mentioned earlier, what kind of cores will be held in the new octa-core CPU. It appears there’s a lot to be answered during the event in December so say tuned for more information.
