HTC's first Octa-core device has leaked, to be called HTC Desire 616. The device has been approved to hit the market, which hints that its announcement isn't far away.
The Desire 616 will be a mid-range device measures 142 x 71.9 x 9.1 mm and weighs 150 grams with a 5" 720p display and a 1.7GHz Octa-core MediaTek CPU with 1GB RAM on board.
Sadly, it will launch with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean but you should expect an upgrade to KitKat later after the launch. As for the Camera, it will pack a 8MP with LED Flash. No expected price or release date yet.
Samsung shows off the latest processor Exynos 8 Octa to compete with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820. Samsung says that Exynos 8 Octa 8890 will go into production by the end of the year, so it is very likely that it will be used in Galaxy S6's successor, ex. the Galaxy S7, which will probably debut in the first quarter of 2016.
Like the Exynos 7420, the new Exynos 8890 is an octa-core, 64-bit chip based on ARMv8 technology and manufactured using a 14nm FinFET process, while the 7420 featured four ARM Cortex-A57 CPU cores and four lower-power Cortex-A53 cores, the new chip is the first to pair four of Samsung's own custom ARMv8 CPU cores with four Cortex-A53 cores as it's the company's first premium chip to feature an integrated LTE modem with upload speeds as high as 150 Mbps and maximum download speeds as much as 600 Mbps.
The new chip supports display resolutions up to 4K UHD (4,096 x 2,160px), even though the existing Exynos 7420 has support for such displays, but we haven't seen a device with one just yet.
Samsung plans to begin mass production of the Exynos 8 Octa in late 2015.

Samsung announced its first 64-bit Chip, the Exynos 7 Octa. It will be the first chip to fully supports Android 5.0 Lollipop which is also the first 64-bit Android OS.
With the Exynos 7 Octa, the company is going to have a much better time with customers differentiating the more powerful Galaxy Note 4 from the Galaxy Alpha, which also packs an Exynos 5 Octa (5430). However, it's a much less powerful one with a quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A15 and quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU.
The Exynos 7 Octa features a octa-core cpu consisting of four Cortex-A57 and for Cortex-A53 cores made using Samsung's 20nm manufacturing process. This results in a 57% boost performance over the previous generation Exynos 5 Octa chipset and thanks to the new manufacturing process, draws less power, too.
