Mediatek Quad-core MT6589 Antutu scores hit 12715!


The current crop of dual-core MT6577 phones are pretty lively devices, however the next generation quad-core MT6589 phones are going to make them look like 3 legged tortoises!

The image above claims to be of a phone undergoing tests at MediaTek’s labs in Taiwan. The phone is said to be running the companies new quad-core MT6589 CPU and has managed to score an amazing Antutu score of 12715!

Earlier this year Mediatek also claimed that the quad-core MT6589 CPU would be even more cost-effective for the company to manufacture than the current dual-core solutions, which means we are going to see some very powerful Android phones launch in the next few months in the sub $180 price range!

    I’d like to know if mediatek will release a LTE quad core chip.

    And also if this will support frequency other than 2100mhz for 3g

    Benchmarks look amazing

      Fingers crossed it could be this

        Hopefully, although i don’t think it will have many band lte support.

        Btw i am not very knowledgeable when it comes to this but how do manufacturers put the sim slots as one for 3G and one for 2G? Is there a reason? Will we see 2 3G compatible slots in the future? Is this dependant on mediatek supporting it or is it just a manufacturer cost cutting thing?

    It’s a 28nm chip, with Quad-A7s. A7s are supposed to be smaller than A9s while offering the same performance. That’s why it will be even more cost-effective. And offer great battery life.

    I can’t wait for this chip. I think that it strikes the balance between performance and battery life. Hoping for a Jiayu G3 version of this since I really like the G3’s looks and battery!

    I hope this processor comes in a 4,3″ to 4,5″ phone with a nice 720p screen, at least 1GB RAM, With Android JB and a nice price and look -> And i’m sold!

    Does the MT6589 support USB Host (OTG) function finally?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Andi we didn’t have a chance to know the Zopo winner who really won it?

    • November 22, 2012

      I posted his name in a post announcing it and I see he has entered the comp to win the UMi too 🙂

    I’m sure this will not have LTE support…

    but MediaTek’s upcoming 8-core SoC will do support LTE ^_^

    Well, I’d say the best case scenario is that the results are comparable with those of Galaxy SIII, Not II(just checked on the site, compared Onda V972 to SIII)
