Latest handset rumors: octa-core powered Huawei Glory 4, BlackBerry Z50 and Q30
The latest buzz around the water cooler has three new smartphones rumored to be in the works. We start first with the Huawei Glory 4. What makes this an intriguing device is the horsepower under its hood, namely the MediaTek MT6592. While MediaTek has received a reputation, and deservedly so, of making value priced chips for entry level models, the company did develop the first true octa-core processor with the MT6592. All eight cores can be active at the same time. Huawei is expected to hold a media event next month, and this handset could be unveiled at that time.

The other two rumored handsets are both BlackBerry models. The BlackBerry Z50 will allegedly become the new flagship model for the Canadian manufacturer sporting a 5.2 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920, and a quad-core processor. This phone is rumored to be the first BlackBerry model out of the gate in Q3 of 2014. Lastly, the BlackBerry Q30 will be a flagship QWERTY equipped model for BlackBerry. The BlackBerry Q30 is expected to arrive in the second quarter of 2014. If all this is true, it sounds like new CEO John Chen is not going to let BlackBerry go down without a fight.
