It is believed that entry-level and mid-range octacore HTC phones will use MT6592 and MT6592M (M is a low level version of the chip) Mediatek processors. These phones will likely only be on sale officially in China and will go up against the Huawei 3X and 2nd generation Xiaomi Hongmi.

    Awesome! An 8-core 2Ghz with 4G from HTC with a HTC One design? Launch-day import for me! (if, of course, it has international support 4G/3G and stuff)
