In new year Micromax will come up with quad core processor, 1 GB RAM smartphone. Though the news has not been confirmed by Micromax but suddenly the introduction of MediaTek MT6589 SoC with quad core Cortex A7 application processor raises the question when the quad core beast is coming in market. This time MediaTek may also replace PowerVR SGx531 with higher version like SGX540 or even SGX544. In that case GPU is also one of the best for gaming. Now assume 1 GB RAM is there to be exploited. The SoC lone can handle multitasking efficiently. Along side 1 GB RAM ensures the processor or GPU do not cause excessive lagging when a heavy thread is running.
MediaTek MT6589 with Quad Core Cortex A7, PowerVR SGX540T
MediaTek MT6589 is based on power efficient cortex A7 ARMv7 application processor. MediaTek is claiming that it’s the most power efficient CPU cores out there in market. The CPU cores are fabricated based on 28 nm architecture. It’s truly an efficient Soc with some cutting edge technology. The SoC supports full HD 1080p video playback, full HD 1080p display with 1920×1080 pixels resolution, DTV grade picture quality. MediaTek Cool 3D suite is also supported by the Soc. Therefore, you can expect a 3D smartphone from Micromax in near future as well.
Each time a new SoC comes from the house of MediaTek MT6589 we can expect the application in sub-$200 smartphones. Let’s see how Micromax negotiates with this move from MediaTek.
Note: No confirmed news on the release of Canvas 3. It’s coming soon.
