EE Times writes MediaTek is teasing its upcoming eight-core SoC as "True Octa". This new chip does not restrict to operate ARM cores as big-little pairs, enabling users to use all eight cores at the same time:
MediaTek Inc. is touting an upcoming eight-core processor as "True Octa," because it does not restrict users to operating ARM processor cores as big-little pairs, where only one core in a pair can be operating at any time.

An eight-core processor has been expected from MediaTek since news came out in November that it was working on the MT6599, an ARM-based processor for a ZTE smartphone. (See: MediaTek reportedly has eight-core apps processor.) MediaTek has now produced a YouTube video that extols the virtue of being able to power all eight cores in an application processor at the same time. "MediaTek is the first adopter of true octa-core technology for mobile SoCs," the company says in the video, which does not provide any product details.
