    Reportedly, the news comes from the Chinses site called Weibo where Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei revealed about its new chips. The quad core smartphone chip is said to be called as HiSilicon K3V2 Pro. It will be based on ARM Cortex A-9 architecture, supporting GSM/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/TD-LTE and FDD-LTE modems.

    While on the other hand, the octa-core SoC would be called as the HiSilicon K3V3. It will be based on ARM's big.LITTLE architecture. It will feature a quad-core Cortex A-15 chip and quad-core Cortex A-7 chip. While the A-15 chip will be utilized for heavy tasks, the A-7 will take care of light-weight ones. The chip is likely to be similar to Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa.

    However, it is unknown if it will be able to implement the Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP). In HMP, all eight cores are used in number of different combinations, acting as 1 to 8 cores all at the same time. Thus it is not sure whether the Octa core chip can be called the true octacore chipset or not.

    While the Huawei has also been using the chips from the popular Qualcomm who has recently announced a number of chipsets and also MediaTek.

    However, in the battle between the SoC makers regarding the best of the technologies which are being implemented, Octa core chipsets is pretty much a normal chip compared with chipsets that are already announced with 4K resolution support and much more.
