When it comes to the newly leaked Desire 616 smartphone, it looks like its going to be China-bound device as a PhoneArena reports says that the "there is high demand for octa-core smartphones, although these usually aren't more powerful than quad-core units."
Talking about the details of the device, the Desire 616 appears to be made out of plastic. It coems with a 5-inch 720p display and is powered by an octa-core 1.7GHz MediaTek processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The handset sports an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and no details on the front facing camera is available as of now. It is reportedly said to come in five color versions viz. black, blue, white, red and yellow. The device measures 142 x 71.9 x 9.1 mm and weighs 150 grams.
