|THL Monkey King II|
The THL Monkey King was recently released in the Philippines by Novo7Tech and yet its successor is already around the corner. This time it brings the latest chip from MediaTek, an 8-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz each.
The online Android store http://www.ghdeal.com listed on their site that the Monkey King II will cost you about USD289.90 and will be in stock by the end of November.

The octa-core processor seems to be too good to be true as of this moment especially with that kind of pricing which only translate to Php12,465.7 (43 pesos per dollar) while the W11 costs Php12,995, therefore I will advise you to take this with a teaspoon of salt.
However if this comes out as authentic expect that I will buy it for full review and might use it as my primary phone.
