Mediatek Smartphone SoC Roadmap Until 2015

Orange Pi Development Boards

Mediatek already has over a dozen of dual, quad and octa processors for smartphone and tablets based on ARM Cortex A7, A9 and A15 cores, and they’ve already announced a 64-Bit ARM SoC (MT6732) as well as MT6595 with four Cortex A17 cores. A leaked product roadmap show the timeline for Mediatek smartphone SoCs, as well as showing some new application processors such as MT6591 Hexa-core SoC, MT6571 dual core Cortex A7 and MT6752 octa core Cortex A53 with LTE.

So let’s recapitulate the new and upcoming SoCs from Mediatek:

  • MT6572/M – Dual core Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz / 1.0 GHz with qHD/HVGA screen support. Available since Q3 2013, and found in phones such as Cubot GT72.
  • MT6582/M – Quad core Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz with HA720/qHD screen support. Available since Q4 2013, found in phones such as W450.
  • MT6588 – Quad core Cortex A7 @ 1.7 GHz supporting FHD screens. Available since Q1 2014, only found is a handful of phones.
  • MT6591 – Hexa core Cortex A7? @ 1.5 GHz supporting FHD screens. Available in Q1 2014. Unannounced, and I could not find phones yet.
  • MT6592/M – Octa core Cortex A7 @ 1.7-2.0GHz/1.4GHz supporting FHD screens. Available since Q1 2014. and found in phones such as HTM H100.
  • MT6571 – Dual core Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz with support for qHD screens, and TD/EDGE. Available in Q2 2014.
  • MT6595 – Octa core big.LITTLE processor with 4x Cortex A17 @ 2.2-2.5 GHz and 4x Cortex A7,  WQXGA (2560 x 1600) screens, and LTE. Available in Q3 2014.
  • MT6732 – Quad core ARM Cortex A53 @ 1.5 GHz with 720p screen support and LTE. Available in Q3 2014.
  • MT6752 – Octa core ARM Cortex A53 @ 1.7 GHz, supporting 1080p displays and LTE. Available in Q4 2014, Q1 2015

I can’t really understand Mediatek’s naming convention, and why they need so many different SoCs, but apparently it’s working for them.

I do wonder if their A53 based SOCs will be able to use the universal ARM kernel, that would be a really big step forward indeed as it would mean we wouldn’t need the kernel sources for all these Chinese phones.

Do they have devboards?

@zoobab
They do of course but good luck getting one unless you’ve got a company and the cash to buy it.
