Seems Samsung was giving us a raw deal with its, bigLITTLE configuration of its Exynos 5 Octa-core processor that was implemented in the Galaxy S4, this week MediaTek has fully announced its new Octa-core processor ambitions. The firm stops short of giving us the actual gist of the specifications that many of you will be waiting for, instead taking the chance to remind us that Arm-based chips will be true eight-cores-at-once processing, and none of this big. LITTLE dallying that Samsung has to offer.
Expect a 2GHz processing speed on arrival, which last we heard was pegged for November. We’re not suggesting the timing of this announcement was planned, but it looks, for now, like 8 is the current lucky number.
