Bangalore, November 10 2014: With the Honor 6, Huawei has broken the Rs 20,000 barrier of mobile phones with an octal processor under the belt.
What's more, the Chinese company's Bangalore-based Indian engineers have created some clever technologies to get maximum juice out of the 8 processing cores of its Kirin 920 chip: Only 4 cores are activated for normal usage, saving the demand on the batteries. If you do compute-heavy tasks like HD gaming, the other four cores kick in like a turbo charger.
