Windows 10 based smartphones and tablets with octa-core processors expected soon

By February 2nd, 2015 AT 6:32 PM

Microsoft unveiled Windows 10 for smartphones and tablets last month, with more focus on ‘One Windows’ philosophy.  Windows 10 on smartphones and tablets will share the same core, with support for unified apps, which will run across all the devices in the ecosystem. The US technology giant had also announced that almost all the smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 will be eligible to receive an upgrade to Windows 10, including even the entry-level models like the Lumia 532 and the Lumia 435, though the Windows ecosystem lacks a true flagship smartphone. However, it looks like we will soon see some high-end smartphones running Windows 10.

Windows 10 For All Devices

The extended hardware support, which was announced to be launched with Windows Phone 8.1 GDr2, will now be launched with Windows 10 for smartphones. This brings compatibility and support for multi-core processors, high-end GPUs, and high-resolution screens. Microsoft also conducted a GDC session named as “Sustained Gaming Performance in Multi-Core Mobile Devices (Presented by Microsoft)”, confirming the plans further.

High-end mobile processors are reaching the performance levels of desktops and laptops, and considering that Windows 10 devices will share the same codebase, the days aren’t far when we can connect a smartphone or a tablet to a large display and use them as a full-fledged PC. There was a report, which came out last year, stating that Windows 10 for smartphones will run on both ARM as well as Intel processors. By launching smartphones and tablets equipped with octa-core processors and high-end GPUs, Microsoft might take us closer to that reality.
