Chinese group Huawei has just released three new mobile platforms, including octa-core supporting 64-bit.
Through its social Weibo account – equivalent of Twitter in China – Richard Yu, CEO of Chinese manufacturer Huawei announced the development of three new mobile platforms.
There will be first and foremost a platform integrating a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and a octa-core platform carrying a quad-core processor ARM Cortex-A15 and another quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 (architecture: each group of four core operates independently and is activated as needed). They house a 4G/LTE network module.
There will be a second octa-core platform (again with two groups of four cores). It will offer a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and another quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 processor. Its particularity: it will manage the 64-bit (of ARMv8 instruction set) as the platform of the iPhone 5S introduced in late 2013 and as discussed with the Galaxy S5 expected soon.
To arrive soon, these three platforms will be designed by Hisilicon, a subsidiary of Huawei dedicated group.
