Several reports coming from China indicate that Huawei is also going to include MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor in their upcoming smartphone. The phone will reportedly be dubbed as Honor 4 or Glory 4. Huawei will be the second major phone company after the Indian phone vendor Intex which has been partnered with MediaTek for their octa-core processor.
Hauwei’s CEO Richard Yu has also confirmed the report, and according to him, the alleged phone might be launched in next month. He revealed that the phone will pack company’s new Emotion 2.0 user-interface, although he declined to disclose the rest of the specification at this point. Huawei’s this octa-core powered smartphone will compete with Xiaomi’s Red Rice and upcoming Red Rice 2.
According to MediaTek, its octa-core MT6592 processor is more powerful than Samsung Exynos 5 Octa as its all eight-core can function simultaneously. On the other hand, in Samsung Exynos octa 5, only four application cores function at a given point of time.
Huawei working on its own Octa-core processor:
Huawei Company President, Xu Xin Quan has revealed on his Weibo account that Huawei is also building its own K3V3 eight-core processor. This processor will come with the company’s upcoming Ascend P6S smartphone.
Not many details are available at this point but this new Huawei processor will compete with MediaTek’s MT6592, and will decrease the dependency of the company on the other octa-core processor suppliers.
