Rumored for a next year release comes the ZTE Apache. It will reportedly run on an 8 (that's right, eight) core processor made by MediaTek. It will be made using the TSMC 28 nm process with Cortex-A15 CPU inside.
The ZTE Apache is expected to arrive by May next year and sport a 13 MP camera, 1080p display, 3G and 4G LTE. There's nothing else we know about the smartphone at this stage, but ZTE already has our attention.
The first dual-core smartphone come to the market in early 2011 and the first quad-cores were unveiled at the MWC in February this year. This means that seeing eight-cores in 2013 is possible.
Perhaps ZTE will be using a big.Little architecture, similar to the one Samsung is working on.
These are just rumors so take them with a grain of salt for now.
And without Made in China, Korea or Taiwan Hardware, see what USA can do ???
just take any top selling smartphones in the world, see what OS is it! LOL
without made-in-USA Android OS, see what Korean phones can do! LOL.
