Mediatek could have moved their schedule on a few months and their 4G LTE 8-core MT6595 processor could be available as soon as January.

It was previously believed that Mediaek’s first 4G LTE processor would not be available to phone makers until mid-way through 2014, however with the Chinese government turning 4G LTE on across China earlier than expected the new chipsets are now also expected earlier.

According to sources in Taiwan Mediatek’s 4G LTE processor, the MT6595, will feature the same 8-core architecture as the current MT6592 and will also come in either 1.7Ghz or 2.2Ghz and multi-band network. Just as the MT6592 supports WCDMA, TD-SCDMA and GSM the new MT6595 chipset will too, but in addition will get FDD-LTE and TD-LTE support.

Apparently manufacturers are already testing the 4G chip in phones in China now, so don’t be surprised if a few still unreleased 8-core devices are pushed back a month or two to receive the update!

    cool .little noob question .is the 4g network in China the same as in europe ?

    • Random

      No

    • Gizchina

      FDD-LTE might be compatible ;)

    • Digiray

      To what I’ve seen, most European carriers use FDD, with some using TDD instead. The problem depends on what 4G frequencies the MT6595 will support. In Spain, the carriers use the 1800/2600 frequency (channel 3/7), so unless the MT6595 can operate on those frequencies, it would be limited to WCDMA here in spain.

        In the netherlands it is 800mhz and 1800mhz for 4G.

        It would be nice of mediatek is going to support all of the frequencies…

    Andi, do you have an educated guess on how long it will take manufacturers to update their current MT6592 phones to MT6595?

    I was eager to order the THL T100 which was released just today but with the MT6595 on the near horizon I think it would probably wiser to wait for a LTE enabeld THL T100…

    Hey Andi do yo know what the frequencies might be like a good guest and from common knowledge do you think these will be in the new THL T100′s. I’m new to this market :-)

    • Zach Martin

      A major problem with the THL T200 and T100 is it doesn’t have the 1900 Frequency – which a lot of Carriers use – especially in the USA -

      Too many unknowns at this point. We’ll have to wait for the official announcement.

  • Dave Weinstein

    This is great news! MediaTek will finally have caught up to Qualcomm!

  • Allanitomwesh

    Nice,can’t wait to see the bands it has…

  • The Number Twenty Four

    FDD-LTE and TD-LTE? Awesome!!!

  • Rock123

    Do you think it will work in North America?
