The UMI X2S is no longer the sole candidate for the title of world’s first smartphone packing a “true” octa-core CPU, as Huawei is apparently gearing up for Glory 4’s rollout.
Chinese manufacturer UMI has announced the X2S, the world’s first smartphone to be powered by a true eight-core processor.
MediaTek has long been rumored to be working on an octa-core SoC, and the first leaked images of a tablet motherboard suggests that the Taiwanese semiconductor designer is close to unveiling it.
The newly revealed MediaTek MT6592 8-core SoC might have a top-tier OEM name attached to it already. Reports say that Sony is working on its own Smartphone based on the MT6592 chipset.
Popular Smartphone chipset manufacturer MediaTek is getting ready to drop an 8-core processor on top of us, by the end of July.
