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.
