HTC's New Phablet To Come Powered By Octa Core MediaTek SoC [Report]


The fresh update from Twitter user @upleaks suggests that HTC will launch its new phablet soon. Moreover, the user further adds saying that the device will use MediaTek's octa core processor. However, the remaining sentences in the tweet reads, "hardware spec is almost the same as Desire816 except Chipset and RAM."

The leakster, who had previously leaked the specs of the LG G2 Lite, however, doesn't reveal the name of the device. Nevertheless, it surely has given enough bit of information about the phone, in a simple line, "... almost the same as Desire816."

So, basically, the leakster is talking about the smartphone which comes with a 5.5-inch HD display. Other expected specs include: 8GB internal storage, which can be further expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card. On the imaging front, the phablet might sport a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with ability to record videos in 1080p video and a 5-megapixel front facing camera.


Withal, since the Twitter user says that it is uses the same specs as of the Desire 816, you can expect the upcoming octa core powered smartphone to come powered by a 2,600mAh battery. Connectivity options in the device would be Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and GPS. Obviously, HTC's BoomSound front stereo speakers can also be expected in the device.

As said by the leakster, the differences between the two would be in Processor and RAM field. The new device is speculated to come powered by a MediaTek octa-core processor, possibly the MT6595. We are expecting at least 2GB of RAM in the new HTC phone.

This is the first time the phone has come into rumor section, so it would be quite unreasonable to be sure about the device. Thus, it should be taken with a pinch of salt, until further leaks appear.
