The thing we do not know currently is, if Huawei will follow the same architecture of four cores of Cortex A7 and four cores of Cortex A15 which Samsung has adopted or does the company have some different plans. The SoC could be the HiSilicon K3V3 or some other which could be manufactured by TSMC.
Along with this, Yu also teased that at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 which is scheduled for next month, Huawei will unveil will unveil a super-thin smartphone which will be a follow up to the Android running P-Series.
