Indian smartphone maker buys MediaTek's Octa-core chipset

Written by Nick Farrell



We told you it wasn't just for China

Intex Technologies has announced that it will soon launch a phone with MediaTek's Octa-core chipset. It will be the first Indian company to offer MediaTek's new chip.

With the MT6592 inside, the Intex offering will be much more affordable than high-end Android phones, but in terms of performance it shouldn't end up much slower. Along with the 1.7 Ghz Octa-core MediaTek processor, Intex said the Android 4.2.2 phone will also have dual SIM capability. While there will be 16 and 32 GB versions with 2GB RAM, there will be a 13MP rear camera.

Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Business Head-Mobile, Intex Technologies said the company wanted to become the top smartphone player in the industry and this has "made us bring extraordinary products with such revolutionary technology to the consumers".

The problem with octa-core will be the fact that there are hardly any apps written to use the capabilities of these processors. It will make multi-tasking faster, but that will be it for quite some time. MediaTek says its true Octa-Core can speed up web browsing and interfaces, while also offering a better gaming and video. Coupled with a relatively weak Mali 450MP4 GPU, the A7-based SoC plainly doesn't have much to offer in terms of GPU performance.
