The Chinese 8-core era is upon us and after a few launches industry insiders are already trying to predict what the future will hold. Could it be $130 8-core phones?
The past few months has seen an the Chinese phone industry shift its attention away from high-end quad-core phones and focus on launching affordable quad-core models. The shift began earlier this year with the Xiaomi Hongmi, but the past few months have seen the launch of rival devices from Coolpad, JiaYu and others.
It’s actually this entry-level market where we are going to be seeing some rather exciting new devices, one of which could launch next month with a 5-inch display and the latest 8-core MT6592 processor! Of course even the best laid plans often miss the mark, but just the fact that manufacturers believe such a price could be even possible is really remarkable!
