THL are currently leading the Chinese phone race with rival Zopo to launch the world’s first 8-core Mediatek MT6592 phone, who is going to be first?
Just seconds after posting the first spy photo of the next generation 8-core Zopo smartphone, we have come across leaked screenshots from the new THL Monkey King 2 phone! Like the screenshots from the Zopo some details have been hidden, but from the details we can see that this is running an 8-core MT6592 processor.
Oddly the notification bar of the phone is showing signal strength for one single SIM, causing some to speculate that the Monkey King 2 might also be one of the first 4G LTE equipped phones from a local Chinese phone maker! Rumours suggest that the Monkey King 2 could actually support TD-LTE, LTE-FDD,TD-SCDMA, WCDMA and GSM.
