The 50c will be sporting the MT6592, developed MediaTek in the latter part of 2013 as the first true octa-core mobile processor . This chipset will be turning 8 Cortex A7 cores running at 1.7Ghz, which is pretty awesome considering the USD$300 price range. The 50b priced at around USD$220 will be using MediaTeks MT6582 chipset, which is a quad-core processor running at 1.3Ghz per core. Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen. Also, both variants will have the same 2,000maAh batteries.

Mutant Malware Threatens US Android Phones
We want you to be able to store your entire life; think of 100 terabytes on your smartphone, Fink said. Thats more than a thousand times the storage an iPhone 5S has today. HP is also designing new, application-specific processors for its architecture. It envisions pools of processors and memory chips interconnected with photonic cables, which Fink said will carry data at up to 6TB per second. Managing the new architecture will require new operating systems. HP is building a Machine OS from scratch, but its also developing a version based on Linux and another with Googles mobile OS.

HP says 'The Machine' will supercharge Android phones to 100TB | PCWorld
This new version of Svpeng got a makeover in looks as well as strength: Its screen overlay stops Android users from accessing any other device functions, and is difficult to circumvent because the malware launches upon reboot. (Affected users should use Google to learn how to put their specific device into "safe mode," which may get around the lockout.) The creators have also customized the new variant of Svpeng to target Android users in the United States, tricking out the lock screen with an FBI logo. This version takes a picture of the infected phone's user with the device's front-facing camera and displays it on the screen, claiming the FBI have the image and know the user's face. Users are then told to pay $200 in MoneyPak vouchers if they want to regain control of their phones, and are even directed users to stores in the U.S. that sell the vouchers. According to Kaspersky, 91 percent of the devices infected by this new Svpeng ransomware variant were located in the U.S., though it's also been detected on phones in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, India and Russia. Svpeng isn't even done growing yet.
