Smartphones have already entered the octa-core phase, however, only a few smartphone brands have launched devices which run on a true octa-core processor. To make things clear, a true octa-core processor means that all of its cores run on the same clock speed and at the same time. Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5410, which was seen on the Galaxy S4, is not a true octa-core as four of its cores are clocked at 1.6 GHz and the rest run on 1.2 GHz.
MediaTek is probably the only company whose true octa-core SoCs are being featured on smartphones. The recently announced Micromax Canvas Knight, with its competitive price tag, seems to be the next big game killer from Micromax.
