ZTE Apache with 8-core CPU said to be coming in 2013
ZTE is on a roll. Now the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer globally, there is a rumor that could take ZTE to the forefront of smartphone producers. If true, this smartphone will put the kibosh on talk that the Chinese OEMs can only produce low to mid-range models. Have your salt nearby? Great! Here goes.

The ZTE Apache is expected to come to market in 2013 with an 8-core CPU under the hood. Mediatek is said to have beaten out both NVIDIA and Qualcomm for the job to produce the unnamed ARM15 MT6599 chip which would be manufactured using TSMC's 28nm process. The rest of the specs are just as spectacular including the 1080p display, 13MP camera and WCDMA/4G LTE/TD-SCDMA support which means China Mobile's proprietary 3G network will support it.Those in the states are more interested in the LTE 4G support.

If the ZTE Apache is everything it is rumored to be, smartphone fanatics will never be able to look at the OEM in the same way. At the same time, the device also puts Mediatek in the spotlight as well. It's way too early to start fantasizing about this handset, but a daydream or two is allowed.
