The ZTE Apache could beat Samsung's Galaxy S4 to the title of first eight-core smartphone, according to a report.
According to China Times, ZTE is collaborating with MediaTek to release a flagship, octo-core device. Its current codename is military-inspired Apache. In addition to the extremely powerful processor, the report also says the smartphone will feature full HD display, as well as a 13-megapixel camera and 4G connectivity.
