Rumour: Xiaomi Hongmi 2 will get 5.5 and 8-core MT6592 processor

Rumours of the Xiaomi Hongmi 2 report that we could see it before the end of the year with an 8-core MT6592 processor.

With the amazing success of the Hongmi, Xiaomi would be crazy not to be planning a follow-up model. Launched in August of this year as a TD-SCDMA only phone and last week finally in WCDMA guise, the Hongmi has become the phone to have for cash strapped technology fans.

The current version of the Hongmi is impressive as it stands with a 4.7-inch display, quad-core CPU and 8 mega-pixel rear camera, however if rumours can be believed the 2nd generation model might be even better with an increase in screen size to 5.5-inch and an 8-core processor!

Reports go on to say that Xiaomi had planned to launch the Xiaomi Hongmi 2 (if the phone exists) by the end of November, but due to delays have had to but the launch off until December!

Would an 8-core Xiaomi Hongmi be an interesting prospect for you?
