Samsung has been one company that has unveiled their mobile octa-core CPU in the past, but it has been argued that the Exynos chip is more or less a couple of quad-core CPUs that have been stacked together, so it is not a true blue octa-core solution that purists demand. Right now, not all of the eight cores are able to be active simultaneously, and four of those happen to be high-performing ones which sip plenty of juice, while the remaining four are lower-performing ones. MediaTek, however, is up to the task to produce a pure octa-core mobile processor. This particular Taiwanese chip designer has announced in the past that this solution will be known as the MT6592, where it can clocked at up to 2GHz and sport quad-core Mali graphics to boot.
Check out an alleged leaked live image of the MediaTek MT6592, where it is seen alongside a smartphone motherboard. The “V” in the name of the MediaTek MT6592 processor could very well be “Developer Edition” or something of the equivalent. Other than that, there aren’t really too many details about the MediaTek MT6952, but if it should make it to the market in due time, we are definitely in for a treat.
