Reports have emerged that chip manufacturer MediaTek are planning to put their next generation quad-core MT6588 CPU in to production as early as October!
Following on from the popularity of the dual-core MTK MT6577 quad-core CPU which is found in literally hundreds of high-performance low-cost Chinese phones, MediaTek have released plans they will be making a limited production run of quad-core MT6588 CPU’s next month.
The limited run of these low-cost quad-core CPU’s will be headed to current phone manufacturers to try out in either updated version of their current phones or possibly in all new next generation quad-core devices!
The MedaiTek MT6588 quad-core CPU is designed to cope with cameras of over 10 mega-pixels, will support dual-sim WCDMA and capture 1080p video.
With any luck we will be getting our first glimpses of next generation quad-core Chinese phones very soon!
