MediaTek announces MT6572 dual core ARM for entry-level devices

MediaTek, a company best known for powering low cost devices with their chipsets has announced a new member to their portfolio. Enter the new Mediatek MT6572 dual-core ARM SoC.

MediaTek's chipsets are really popular with budget Android smartphones. For example the UMI X2 run on MediaTek's quad core MT6589 SOC (4*ARM Cortex A7) and also manages to pack a 5 inch 1080p display, all for under $240. With the release of their new MT6572 chipset, MediaTek is expanding their portfolio with a new dual core SOC based on the same low power ARM Cortex A7 architecture.

MediaTek MT6572 features:

  • ARM Cortex A7 architecture
  • 1.2 GHz Dual Core CPU
  • ARM Mali-400 MP
  • Wi-Fi, FM Radio, GPS, Bluetooth
  • 5 MP Camera Support, 720p Video Recording
  • Max Display Resolution: qHD (960 x 540)
  • Multi-Mode HSPA+/TD-SCDMA Modem
  • 28 nm Manufacturing Process

Looking at the feature sheet, the MT6572 is hardly impressive, but it does shine in a $100 budget dual core smartphone. After doing a little digging, we found out that the GPU is the ARM Mali 400 MP which we have previously seen in Samsung's Exynos chipsets as well as in ST-Ericsson's Novathor U8420/8500 chipsets.
