Mediatek’s MT6595 chipset is one of the most talked about developments in the Chinese smartphone industry at present. The chipset will not only bring native support for 4G LTE, but is also rumoured to offer similar performance as the Qualcomm Snapdraogn 801 SoC.
Specifications for the Mediatek MT6595 include built-in LTE, big.LITTLE octacore architecture using Cortex A17 and A15 cores, PowerVR G6200 GPU and will be able to record and play 4K video, drive 2K displays and support next generation camera equipment.
