Just the other day, Intex Technologies unveiled its first gen true Octa-Core smartphone in India at a given price of Rs. 19,999.
The device is already creating buzz, considering that it comes with MediaTek MT6592 chipset under the hood.
Domestic vendor Intex might be on cloud nine, but soon India's second largest smartphone maker, Micromax, will soon announce its upcoming 8-core supported phone in India. Yes, you heard it right.
If rumors are to be believed, Micromax is expecting to formally launch its first smartphone with an Octa-Core processor later this month.
The Mobile Indian says that the domestic hot-shot vendor's mystery handset with a 1.7GHz Octa-Core processor indeed exists in reality.
The technology website has spotted the device on AnTuTu behchmark site, making it clear that the company is preparing to announce the device as early as this month.
Dubbed Micromax A350 (26,886), the phone managed to outperform Samsung's Galaxy S4 (26,886) and HTC One (26,556), if one asked to look at the score sheet.
Also, it should be noted that Micromax's forthcoming A350 isn't looking great, despite having an Octa-Core processor under the hood. The other two handsets: Samsung Galaxy S4 (Indian version has Exynos 5 Octa 5410 chipset) and HTC One--both come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC coupled with 2GB RAM.
We already know that the fight is between MediaTek MT 6592 (Octa-Core) vs. Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (quad-core) processor. So logically speaking, it hardly matters if Micromax's A350 outranked the Galaxy S4 and HTC One in the benchmark tally. Nevertheless, after the failure of Micromax Canvas Turbo A250, the brand is pinning its hopes on yet to be announced: A350.
