Starmobile wants to start the New Year with a bang by releasing what seems to be the first locally branded smartphone with an octa-core processor—the Starmobile Diamond X1. It’s a 6-inch phablet that’s expected to launch in January 2014.

So far, Starmobile has kept mum on a lot of details about the Diamond X1. The company, though, did tease in an email that this 6-inch phablet will employ the very same build quality, camera sensors, and imaging features that Starmobile devices are distinguished for. Could this be a high-end smartphone positioned (hopefully) at a very attractive price range?

We can, however, guess what the 8-core chip will be, given that most local brands make good use of processors made by MediaTek. This China-based chip manufacturer has so far only unveiled one octa-core processor this year—the MT6592—with rumors suggesting a LTE-enabled follow-up to surface in January.

What this means is we might have capable smartphone that comes equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording, Mali450-MP4 GPU, 1080p (Full HD) screen display, and HSPA+ connectivity. These are only speculations on our part, so let’s wait for the official announcement.
