HTC’s next smartphone may astound us with some high built-in specs. In a post on Chinese microblogging webpage Weibo, HTC says that they will have the world’s first octa-center 64-bit smartphone. The current HTC leader, the One M8 (accessible in both Android and Windows Phone flavors) packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a 32-bit chip with a measly four cores timed at 2.3GHz. An eight-core 64-bit chip? That would be new.
HTC’s not saying which smartphone will see this new chip, or even which chip we’d be seeing in said phone. Qualcomm has begun creation on different 64-bit 8-core chips, including the mid-range Snapdragon 615. The higher-controlled Snapdragon 808 and 810 aren’t normal until later in the not so distant future. All utilize the ARM big.LITTLE format (four high-power cores for the substantial lifting and four low-power cores for everyday work).
For what its value, the corner render of the phone in HTC’s teaser additionally appears as though it may be mid-level too. It’s obviously HTC design, however there may be something plasticky to it. We’ll see soon enough, we assume. What do you think?
