Huawei goes octocore

Written by Nick Farrell



Can guess the world cup results

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn that Huawei is about to release a new octocore smart phone. The company gave the press some very early warning about its plans for the upcoming IFA technology show, which will take place in Berlin, Germany at the beginning of next month. It has sent out a few invites saying it’ll be “empowering a future of exciting possibilities.”

The rumours of what will be announced focus on an expected Ascend Mate 3. The current model has been around since January, and only recently put the phone on sale in America through its own website. One reason for the early introduction could be due to Huawei merging the Mate series with the D-Series devices, making the Mate 3 the first of Huawei’s next generation smartphones.

Rumours say that the phone’s screen shrink down to 6-inches, and the resolution increase to 1080p and an octa-core processor of Huawei’s own design could provide the power.

Android 4.4 KitKat should be installed as the operating system and it will have a 13-megapixel camera on the rear panel. All rumours of course but it will make any quad-core announcements by other outfits in the Chinese market look a little dated.
