Elephone P9000 could very well be the first deca core smartphone

An upcoming smartphone named Elephone P9000 is apparently about to become to the first in the world to feature a deca core processor. That’s ten cores in case you’re wondering what ‘deca’ refers to.

The only chipset in the market right now that offers such a CPU is the new MediaTek Helio X20. It’s believed that the Elephone P9000 will grab this SoC, and will offer other high-end hardware attributes at an affordable price tag.

According to Android Authority, a My Drivers post is citing rumors in China that are talking about the deca core processor being present on this new Elephone handset. It will supposedly carry a retail value of around $500 when it is launched on October 20.

We have also been given an idea about what else to expect from the P9000. It may ship with a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD display and 4GB worth of RAM onboard. A 20.7MP rear camera is said to form part of it, apart from an 8MP front snapper meant for selfies and video calling.

A quick look at the leaked specs of the new Elephone P9000 smartphone:

– Display: 5.5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop
– Processor: 2.5GHz deca core MediaTek Helio X20
– GPU: Mali T880
– Memory: 4GB RAM, 32GB storage (microSD support)
– Cameras: 20.7MP rear, 8MP front
– Battery: 3100mAh

It’s of course expected to run the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, while it’s touted to carry a 3100mAh battery. This new smartphone will feature two SIM card slots as well as 4G LTE support.
