It seems that there is a new octa-core MediaTek MT6592 chip that leaked recently, and word on the street has it that Sony could be one of the companies that manufacture smartphones to embrace just such a handset. Of course, Sony would not be the only high-profile phone manufacturer to be in line to take advantage of the octa-core MediaTek MT6592 chip, as whispers have it that the likes of LG, ZTE, Huawei and Lenovo have already early samples of it, and could very well roll out a smartphone with that chipset underneath the hood down the road.
The octa-core MediaTek MT6592 chip is said to boast a clock speed of between 1.7GHz to 2GHz, where initial alleged impressions of it do seem to have set new benchmark records, hitting more than 30,000 points on AnTuTu, which makes it speedier than the Samsung Galaxy S4. Needless to say, expect to see an octa-core MediaTek MT6592 chip in action in the higher end smartphone category down the road, with the earliest possible time period being slated for a 2014 rollout, sometime in the first half – which means there might still be a long way to go for the impatient types.
