Huawei Ascend P6S to use octa-core chipset?


If you liked the Huawei Ascend P6 or the smartphone formerly known as the world's thinnest smartphone, then you'll like the fact that Huawei are currently working on a more powerful version called the Huawei Ascend P6S. Utilizing the same super slim profile, the Ascend P6S will use an octa-core chipset, and this has been confirmed from comments made by Huawei's President himself. Unfortunately, it is still unknown which chipset Huawei will be using. It seems unlikely that they'd go for a Samsung Exynos 5 chipset and there is no news yet of a very good octa-core Huawei chipset either. This means that the Ascend P6S will likely use the more affordable MT6592 octa-core chipset from MediaTek which has performed well so far. While it hasn't scored as high as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processors, a 28000+ score on AnTuTu is still very respectable performance. No news on Malaysia pricing or release dates just yet but the Huawei Ascend P6S is likely to come out in late December 2013 or early 2014 as the MediaTek MT6592 is only set for release from 20 November 2013.
