Didn't ARM say they have about 15 big.Little licenses? We should probably see more companies using it.

Good to see Renesas fighting back. Hope they give Qualcomm and Nvidia a good run for their money.

A more interesting use case would be the concurrent LTE download / WiFi upload to a TV. Which will put higher requirements on the device coexistence front of course.

They might as well put just A7s. A15 is going suck power like from a fire hose.

Unlike some Big.Little designs, the Renesas chip allows all four cores to be active at the same time.(only 1x A7 to 2x A7/2x A15)
