MediaTek Inc. today announced its next-generation, dual-core smartphone platform -- the MT6572 -- a dual-core SoC with integrated Wi-Fi, FM, GPS and Bluetooth functions targeted at the entry segment.
This cost-optimized design reduces the e-BOM cost, simplifies the product development and enhances time to market. The new MT6572 integrates a power-efficient dual-core Cortex-A7 CPU sub-system with speeds up to 1.2GHz in the 28nm process technology.
The new MT6572 also integrates MediaTek's multi-mode Rel. 8 HSPA+/TD-SCDMA modem, 3D Graphics, support for up to HD 720p video playback and record, 5MP camera and up to qHD (960x540) displays. It also supports the picture quality technologies (MiraVision) inherited from MediaTek's experience in the Digital TV market
Phones powered by the MT6572 will start appearing in June.
