This weed is a big one for Chinese phone fans, or anyone really who is interested in following the latest smartphone trends and advances! So what is so special about this week? How about the launch of 4 x 8-core MT6592 phones!
The Chinese phone industry is always a fast pace one, with new phones arriving by the day, but this week is special for a very big reason! Not only will Mediatek launch its new range of smartphone processors (tomorrow) but 4 manufacturers will launch smartphones based on the latest 8-core MT6592 platform!
Rumours that Coolpad will launch an 8-core MT6592 phone started just a few days ago after Mediatek sent out invitations to their new processor launch. According to reports the new Coolpad might be called the Grand View 4 and could feature a huge 7-inch display! If true not only would this be the first MT6592 device to launch, but it would also be the largest phone/phablet ever to go on sale!
- Launch 20th November
Mlais MX69 Pro
We have seen plenty about the Mlais MX69, a 5.7-inch HD 8-core phone which happens to look a whole lot like the Galaxy Note 3. Other details include gesture controls, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and colour choices including pink, whilte and black.
Gizchina News of the week
Pricing for the Mlais is 1799 Yuan ($295), and if you want to see how powerful it it take a look at these benchmarks!

Green Orange NX
The Green Orange NX is the most mysterious phone of the bunch! All we know for sure is it will launch on 21st November, and this is the only leaked image we have of it! Specifications are just as hard to get hold of, but from the image we can see a dual LED flash and what appears to be a a one piece alloy body.
- Launch 21st November
The Zopo 8-core smarpthone is the only one on this list which will officially be available to international customers, and at launch too! Zopo have been revamping their image over the past month with the aim to attract more international fans. As for the Zopo 8-core phone, we know it will run a 1.7Ghz MT6592 processor, and we can assume it has a 1080 display, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and 2GB RAM, but we know nothing until the launch date!

Which 8-core MT6592 phone are you most excited about?
These 4 8-core smartphones are just the tip of the ice-berg! JiaYu, UMi, THL, TCL, Huawei and others all have 8-core phones scheduled for launch later this year! So of the phones you now about now which are you most interested in? Which might you buy?
Anyone of them with a stylus then it’s a winner for me especially the one with the humongous 7 inch screen.
You have it with Mlais MX69… A perfect Note 3 Clone !
I am keeping an eye on Mlais & Thl Monkey King 2 mainly…. but Green Orange design is luring me to count him in also ! I am helpless…
aha, I like Mlais mx69 too, it seem good clone….
andi i think you meant this week in the first line….its this weed though….. :p
Yup, because today is Weed’nsday 😉
What is the price-range of the 8-core phones? What do you think?
I find the price of Mlais MX69pro is USD310 in shop “Onlybuying“, but don’t know if it is the final price, is yes, really pretty good price.
All this rush to Octa Core is good and well- what concerns me is that with a power hungry Octa core first gen. processor and large Full HD displays- these phone had better standardize on at least 4000 mAh or even larger batteries. My Samsung Note 2-with a 3100 mAh battery – really needs a recharge by 8 evening..dispite having Not having a Full HD display and only Quad Core !! Battery Power is surely going to be a limiting factor in more power to next gen. Smart Phones.
1.7ghz cortex A7 will not impress me no matter how much they up the core count. I rarely see my current quad core phone even use the 3rd and 4th core consistently. They’re just sporadically and lightly drawn on, so core 5 to 8 will basically see no use at all. Factor out the extra cores and this thing is still slower than a samsung S3 processor.
2ghz is a slightly different story but still meh.
“Factor out the extra cores and this thing is still slower than a samsung S3 processor.”
Which is more than enough for 95% of the Smartphone Users out there…
Personally I am most interested in the THL Monkey King 2… not because of the octacore-SoC (I would aswell be satisfied with MT6589T or MT6588) but because of the looks + dual sim + SD card + removeable battery + possible LTE.
Green Orange NX looks interesting, too, but there is too few info on it yet.
“still slower than a samsung S3 processor”
It’s the whole package that counts. 2 gb memory, 32 GB internall sd, FHD 5″+ . MP4 grapics, 8 core cpu at a price which is still much under the price of a midrange S3. Even if ur right…who cares about that midrange specs of a S3.
I’m actually hoping for the quad core version, 720p display 4.7″, micro sd, penta band, you can keep your extra cores.
gps gps gps, take the motorola new MOTO G, when use indoor, you get a fix in 20 seconds, with other smartphones you will not get a fix even if you will wait till tomorrow.
OTG and NFC are must.
3200 battery is the minimum.
gooophone N3 elite
Andi you forgot to allow my comment from yesterday… I wrote that Thl T100 and T200 also worth mentioning and the already available Jiake V8 too.
Device launching: 4
Worth buying: 0
Does any of them have 4G too? I don’t get why 3G only phones are still being launched even when all the other specs match or surpass those on high end brand phones
not excited due to the pricing. this chip is a bit slower than the snapdragon 800. the google nexus 5 can be had for only 350. these sell for 300? 250 would have been more competitive.
Where’s info on the mysterious green orange nx? zopo is out, I thought green orange was same time?
