In some surprising news, it looks like we’ll be seeing more and more devices powered by MediaTek processors in the near-future. Hot off the heels of ZTE potentially developing a smartphone featuring a MediaTek 8-core processor, Sony has requested samples of MediaTek’s MT6589 quad-core SoC.
MediaTek jumped into the quad-core game a couple of months ago with the announcement of the MT6589. MediaTek has always been known to be in lesser known brands in China, but the likes of Sony are realizing the potential that MediaTek offers. For instance, the turbo version of the MT6589 (MT6589T) was just benchmarked with some very positive results.
Here is a good news for all micromax users,
Micromax recently launched smartphone
" Micromax Canvas XL 2 "
so we can expect update soon for other smartphones running on MT6589 chipset.:o
