It seems Huawei has some Android tricks up its sleeves, one of them being the newly leaked eight-core Huawei G750.
The previously unheard of device reportedly packs MediaTek’s powerful new octa-core processor, according to the photos and info that leaked on the Chinese site MyDrivers.
That’s the same monster MediaTek processor rumored to be coming in Sony’s next batch of Xperia phones.
However, it’s unclear whether the G750 is merely the codename or model number for the Huawei Honor 4/Glory 4, which are also rumored to be powered by the new MediaTek chip, or a separate device entirely.
MediaTek has been vocal about its new 1.7 GHz MT6592 System on a Chip (SoC), which it claims is the "world’s first true octa-core mobile platform."
The Taiwanese chip maker says in addition to the eight-core chip’s raw processing power, it has the advantage of being fully scalable and consuming less battery power than the quad-core processors that are currently popular in various flagship smartphones.
Other than that juicy tidbit, based on the specs pictured in this leak it seems the Huawei G750 will sport a big but disappointing 720p 5.5-inch display, 2GB of memory, 32GB of storage, and 13- and 5-megapixel cameras.
It will also reportedly come with the slightly outdated Android 4.2.2 and be available on China’s three big carriers, China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom.
