MediaTek exhibits its MT6595 chipset with integrated LTE - read the full textMediaTek had announced its MT6595 chipset a while ago and the company has now showcased it at the China Electronic Information Expo. Back at its unveiling, MediaTek did not reveal much of the details of its MT6595 silicon, but we now know what exactly it is made up of. The MT6595 is built up on...

If this arrives at the right time, it could blow the competition out of the water.

The competition would have the same it has today: binary blobs.

I like Snapdragon 800 but MT6595 sounds like a strong competitor with PowerVR graphics plus competition is beneficial to consumers.

If only Mediatek would give kernel sources of its chipsets ala freakin' everyone else.. These people make some truly capable SoCs but for God knows what reason they refuse to support that which is most essential to the Android community : AOSP development.

As the article says that it will support TD-LTE .Can some one clarify this cheap set will support TD-LTE of 2300 Mhz of frequency in Band 40. That's what is deployed in India. So i want to know that will it be compatible with the LTE of India ?

Meh, I realy don't hink there's a future for this kind of 2-quad octacores; make a proper quadcore chip like Qualcomm does or go home.

You get so much bang for your buck with MediaTek. Samsung and Qualcomm will have to straighten up their act, or soon there will be a new SoC-king.

Their policies regarding the Linux kernel are laughable, completely illegal and on top of that dangerous to anyone with a Mediatek device. It is known that some of their SoCs are stuck with flawed kernels which have very well known security breaches (which are not fixed, because Mediatek thinks it owns Linux).

Avoid!

They should work on driver, every devices that have Mediatek SoC inside stuck on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Now with LTE integration. Seems like mediatek is improving faster than samsung. Their exynos chips are left behind now.
