MediaTek today announced the MT6592, a mobile processor that includes eight cores with each capable of running at speeds up to 2GHz. The MT6592 uses an ARM Cortex A7 engine paired with the ARM Mail GPU. MediaTek says the MT6592 uses heterogenous computing, which allows each core to run at different speeds to balance performance and power consumption. The chip supports Ultra HD video playback, imaging sensors up to 16 megapixels, 1080p HD displays, and other video codecs such as H.265 and VP9. According to MediaTek, the MT6592 is available as a system-on-a-chip with its multi-mode cellular modem, which supports dual-band Wi-Fi, Miracast, Bluetooth, FM tuner, and GPS. MediaTek says MT6592 will appear in devices running Android 4.3 by the end of this year, and devices running Android 4.4 early next year.

Sweet!

More spec war BS to drive sales!

...meanwhile, the things that would give users the REAL benefits, i.e. better battery life, continue to go seemingly unnoticed.

Take your CPU that will never actually be useful inside a smartphone and shove it.
Couldn't agree more. My only hope is that those new curved batteries coming out within the next or so will be more useful than just looking pretty. I'm not holding my breath.
The thought that microprocessor people should stop making better processors because the battery people don't make better batteries.
