MediaTek today announced a new System-on-Chip (SoC), the MT6572, which offers a dual-core Cortex A7 processor as well as HSPA+ connectivity. This new SoC comes after the company launched the MT6589 late last year that featured a quad-core Cortex A7 processor. MediaTek claims this is the world’s first SoC to feature integrated Wi-Fi, FM, GPS and Bluetooth.

The MT6572 is capable of supporting up to 5-megapixel camera and a qHD display with 720p resolution, which would enable smartphone manufactures to bring better features in the entry-level segment. The MT6589 processor enabled vendors like Micromax, Karbonn, Lava and others to bring smartphones with quad-core processors for less than Rs 15,000. With the new SoC, we can expect smartphones under Rs 10,000 to have better specifications. At the moment, most of them feature a WVGA display and don’t have HSPA+ connectivity for faster data connectivity.
