Out of China this morning comes news about HTC's next mid-range handset. According to this report, the HTC One X9 will be replaced in January with the HTC X10. Expect a 5.5-inch display, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The MediaTek Helio P10 SoC will be driving the phone. This features a true octa-core 2GHz CPU (Cortex-A53 cores) along with the Mali-T860 GPU clocked at 700MHz.
Other parts of the rumor include 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP rear-facing camera with OIS. According to the buzz around the water cooler, the handset will be priced at the equivalent of $288 USD. Most of these specs are in line with the HTC One X9, which launched on New Year's Day this year.

What could they possibly gain by saving 10$ or so using Mediatek chipsets. This will only hurt their sales numbers. It would have been a great device with a SD 653.

Helio P10, eh? I don't think its a "TRUE" Octa-Core... It has 2 Cortex-A53 clusters; one at 2.0Ghz and the other at a low 1.2Ghz... The process die is kinda huge at 28nnm and hence... I won't be surprised if this phone show signs of over-heating during heavy gaming when all 8 cores are humming along at their full potential... The RAM is a single-channel DDR3 at 7.2 GB/s... With these high clocked cores, RAM should've been a Dual Channel one... Helio P20 would've been an ideal choice cause its built on 16 N.M architecture and hence is clocked higher and the RAM is Dual Channel DDR4 @ 12.8 GB/s... This phone, in all honestly, is passable...

No, based on what I have read on other sites, the Helio P10 is a true octa-core. all the cores are running at 2.0 GHz whether LP or HP.
