Sony To Launch An Octa-Core 6-inch Phablet Codenamed “Tianchi”

/ 4 years ago


Sony had a really busy year, and will not stop here it seems. After several high-end smartphones, tablets and phablets, it appears that the company also wants to offer users an alternative to the already growing mobile market, in which ASUS Fonepad Note 6 and Nokia Lumia 1520 lurk.

The Sone Xperia Tianchi is the phablet to compete with the above mentioned competitors, and is quite like a big brother Z Ultra. The flashgrip is equipped with a 6-inch display, but it seems will not packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC. The Japanese phone maker has been working very closely with MediaTek on their upcoming “true octa-core” chipset. So the Tianchi will most likely come with the MediaTek MT6592 SoC, combining eight Cortex A7 cores in one chip.
