G Five are better known for their range of Android tablets, but they are gearing up to give the phone market a crack with the G Five Kivu, 8-core handset!
The news of Mediatek’s 8-core MT6592 chipset launch is so fresh that the ink hasn’t dried on our webpages (that’s how the internet works right?), and already we are seeing leaked renders and specifications from Chinese phone makers preparing to make use of the new octa-core SoC.
Above we have the first (of many to come) leaked renders of a purported 8-core Mediatek handset. Manufactured by G Five and named the Kivu, this next generation Chinese phone will boast a 6-inch+ 1080 display, 2GB RAM and that MT6592 processor.
Design wise the G Five Kivu is very similar to the current Oppo Find 5. How genuine the render is debatable, but we could be looking at the world’s first Chinese 8 core phone!
Mediatek are scheduled to ship small quantities of 8 core MT6592 processors to manufacturers by the end of this month. We expect the first 8 core Mediatek phones to launch before December.
