ZTE Apache: world’s first octo-core smartphone?

ZTE Apache: world’s first octo-core smartphone?At Mobile World Congress 2011, we were drooling over the first round of dual-core wares, and this year quad-core was the order of the day (well, for Android at least).

Come next year’s Mobile World Congress, might we be fondling the world’s first octo-core smartphone? If Chinese manufacturer ZTE gets its finger out, the answer is “yes!” Well, maybe.

According to China Times, ZTE is teaming with Mediatek to launch an octo-core smartphone beast called the ZTE Apache.

Other rumoured ZTE Apache specs include a 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, and 4G LTE support.

It’s not clear when the ZTE Apache is expected to land (pun intended), though the first Samsung octo-core rumours are beginning to surface, so the arms race is well and truly on.

ZTE clearly has a taste for world’s firsts. A few days ago we were saying that the ZTE N880E was the first Chinese phone to grab a handful of Jelly Bean Android 4.2.

Since I’ve got some space to fill, I’ll randomly state that the world’s first dual-core smartphone was the LG Optimus 2X. As for the world’s first quad-core smartphone, that honour went to the LG Optimus 4X HD. Probably.

Early orders receive a free car battery, I suppose?

Optimus 4x was the world's third quad core after the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy SIII.

pretty pointless really, even quad core isn't being taken advantage of by the manufacturers and app developers.
