Qualm controls the domestic market of 4G mobile phone chips, whenever you buy china mobile or not, and they are all adopted snapdragon of qualm.We have no choice,but this situation will not last for long.
According to Taiwan, MTK, One of the biggest supplier, will put out a new advanced octa-core 4G LTE CPU-“MT6595”, and plan to shake the status of qualm. MT 6595 is the first LTE octa-core SOC by MTK, is also the first one with A17 CPU. The four A17 cores and four cortex A7 cores are joint by HMP, and both are okay: work together or work separately. MTK indicates this structure can realize the best division, heat management and consumption control.
Cortex A17 can, properly speaking,support Cortex A12 of Big Little,and his position is lower than Cortex A15 aiming to replace the old Cortex-A9、A17 and support the new technology of video encoder like HEVC 4K/2K.It can play with taking if you like.
But for MTX, the greatest significance is support of 4G LTE. The 4G TDD LTE license has been issued to two operators.There is no doubt that the mainland China become the main motive force of global 4G market, like china mobile sold about 2000 million phones in the first half year and need to achieve the target of 5000 million.
After MT6595, 64 bit four cores and octa-core LTE chip will also be in the fourth quarter, and shipments of LTE chip are expected to 15000 sets this year, which takes five percent in 3 billion shipments of smart-phone chip. [source]
