According to reports on Chinese tech sites MediaTek are preparing to launch the next generation quad-core MT6589 CPU on the 11th December, but you don’t need to wait until then to see how this low-cost quad-core performs as we have leaked benchmarks here.
MediaTek will be launching its new quad-core MT6589 platform on the 11th December and already has the likes of Oppo, Lenovo, TCL, Coolpad BBK, ZTE, Huawei and more signing up to launch low-cost quad-core phones.
Luckily we don’t need to wait until December to find out just how well these quad-core MT6589 phones will perform though as one helpful insider has leaked Antutu benchmarks for a mystery Lenovo phone.
According to the leaked screenshots this quad-core prototype Lenovo phone has an MT6589 CPU clocked at 1.2Ghz, 1GB RAM, built-in PowerVR SGX 544 and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean which work together to achieve and impressive 9866 AnTutu score.
We don’t really know when this prototype will go on sale or how much it will cost but judging by the 8 mega-pixel camera and 960 x 540 display we can guess that this quad-core phone will be quite an affordable phone.
