MediaTek MT6595 Octa-Core chip with built-in 4G LTE announced

MediaTek True Octa-Core

MediaTek has just announced MT6595, the world’s First 4G LTE Octa-Core Smartphone SOC with ARM Cortex-A17 CPU that was announced today. This uses PowerVR Series6 GPU and not the Mali-T720 GPU that was announced along with the Cortex-A17. This has H.265 H.265 Ultra HD (4K2K) video record & playback. It uses ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture along with MediaTek’s CorePilot technology for Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) that uses all the eight cores.
