First look at the THL Monkey King 2 PCB confirms 8-core MTK6592 processor


On our visit to THL last month we were lucky enough to see the THL Monkey King 2 in the flesh, at that time 4G LTE was mentioned but it now appears an 8-core MTK6592 chip will be used instead.

This photo of the PCB from the THL Monkey King 2 shows that the new phone will be sporting Mediatek’s next generation 8-core MTK6592 processor. Unlike current Samsung Octa-core chips, this Mediatek unit will run all 8-cores at once.

In addition from what we can see here we can confirm that the mock-up that we handled at THL features a new design, alloy body, replaceable battery and 5-inch 1080 display. We will see if we can publish photos of the phone we tried later this week.

    So, when will you be able to show us some pics of MK2 Andi? Next month? I’m getting really anxious to see it, and you make it sound really nice.

    Chinese technology is going too fast. I just have the thl w11 for just a month and I thought it was the best bang for buck phone. I thought I could at least enjoy it for a year and now they already announcing a new one. Can’t say I’m excited for this new phone.
