At the launch we expect to see the unveiling of an 8-core MT6592 Honor model with 5.5-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 8GB memory, 5 mega-pixel front and 13 mega-pixel rear cameras, plus the world’s first quad-core MT6588 smartphone!

The MT6588 is the quad-core version of the new 8-core chip and is quite an interesting unit as it’s low cost and high performance will allow Chinese phone makers to work on innovation rather than all out specs. The Huawei Honor 5C is rumoured to be the world’s first MT6588 phone with 2GB RAM, 4.7-inch 720p display, 8 mega-pixel camera and a price of just 999 Yuan ($160)!.

    Does anyone know if Mediatek has fixed the GPS problems on their chipset?

    I have read reports that the GPS does not work very well on phones with Mediatek chipset.
