MediaTek MT6575 Review
In an ecosystem where dual-core smartphones are dominating; a single-core handset like the MediaTek MT6575 might be a little lagged. The phone is deliberately not targeting high-end users; however the sub-$200 Ice Cream Sandwich may prove to be attractive in large emerging markets, such a China and India. Early reviews showed that the device exhibits smooth performance and exceptional display technology.
MediaTek is a Taiwanese tech company which pioneered cutting-edge technology in SOC system technology for HDTV, wireless communication and optical storage. It made history with its D-TV platforms and in the mobile industry they stay in this tradition by using the integrated proprietary image processing algorithm. The effect is wonderful; colors look full-bodied and rich, while details are exceptionally sharp. The smartphone also features an old technology that hasn’t really taken off in the United States; the mobile 3D display. The MT6575 is also a dual-SIM phone, something that’s prevalent in developing countries. The 1GHz Cortex A9 processor can support qHD (960 x 540 pixels) resolution, 8Mp rear facing camera and 720p video playback. The recent proliferation of Cortex A-series processor definitely up-lifts user experience in lower segments.
MediaTek claimed that the MT6575 outperforms Snapdragon MSM7227A, in many 3rd party benchmarks. However when inquired whether they will release a tablet, the company said that it has no plans. Consumers will definitely love to see the implementation of MediaTek’s imaging technology on a tablet as many low-end Android tablets seem to have image rendering issues.
