Huawei put on a pretty nice CES showing, and even managed to get us a bit excited about some of what it has planned for the future. We had already heard that the company was coming out with its own A15-based SoC later on this year, and now the company’s Consumer Business Group CEO, Richard Yu, adds that Huawei has its eye on an eight-core chip, just like we recently saw Samsung announce.

Besides being an eight-core design, the only other detail that’s been shared so far is that the chip would use A15 cores. We don’t yet know if that means that half the cores would be A15s, like in the Exynos 5 Octa, or if Huawei has another configuration in mind.

Beyond that new SoC, Huawei is also planning to grab the top spot for thinnest phone around. We know, we shouldn’t be encouraging such things, especially when untenable sacrifices are made in order shrink things down, but that’s not going to stop us from at least being impressed from an engineering standpoint. To that end, Huawei intends to outdo the just-announced 6.45-millimeter-thick Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra. There’s no word on just how much thinner it will be, but as it’s on the menu for next month’s MWC, we’ll know soon.
