Mediatek Unveils MT6577 Dual Core Cortex A9 Application Processor

MediaTek¬† has announced the availability of the MT6577, a dual-core Cortex A9 application processor with a PowerVR Series5 SGX GPU that targets sub-$200 smartphones. The successor of MT6575 single core Cortex A9 mobile processor also includes MediaTek’s 3G/HSPA modem.

The processor supports Android 4.0, and the company claims browser performance improvement by up to 40% compared to single-core platforms.

The MT6577 also supports 8MP camera sensors, can handle 1080p video playback and has the ability to support HD720 (1280×720) resolution displays. The platform also embeds MediaTek 4-in-1 connectivity combo that provides 802.11n Wi-Fi & BT4.0 connectivity, GPS and FM. The MT6577 is pin-to-pin compatible with MT6575, so handset manufacturers can just use existing designs to upgrade to dual core, or design a single PCB with both single and dual core handsets.

The first smartphones featuring MT6577 should be available in Q3 2012.

That’s all information I have for now.
