mediatek-mt6290Wow, how a year can change things in the world of China brand technology. From last year when MediaTek was barely a blip on the radar in the mainstream community, to this year when MTK has, as predicted, been implemented in mainstream brands such as Sony and Huawei, releasing an 8-core SoC with LTE, and showcasing MediaTek solutions at CSE in Las Vegas.

Though of course we still have a ways to go before we see LTE in consumer ready smartphones, the project is well into development with MT6592 and MT6595. The even bigger question of when for us is – will American LTE/4G frequencies be implemented in MTK6592 and MTK6595. We do find it a bit beyond amusing that MediaTek / MTK is showcasing their 4G/LTE, yet still haven’t included 1900WCDMA as standard in their RF.

On with the show. MediaTek showcased chips such as MT8135, wearable networking devices, high-performance MT7621A, which is a network router solution, and of course their newest SoC РMT6592.

We’ve previously written about MT6290, and easily the most interesting news thus far is this 4G/LTE chip to be used along with MT6592, MT6595, and possibly even in existing quad-core SoC such as MTK6582, MTK6589 and MTK6589T.

This last bit hasn’t been confirmed, but it makes sense that MT6290 will be compatible with current generation MTK quad-core. This is great news for manufacturers. They will simply be able to include MT6290 with some changes to baseband, and bam, they can have LTE compatible versions of already existing models.

Reportedly, MediaTek has received authorization from NTT DOCOMO to use their LTE technology, along with SIMT DSP Swedish based company Coresonic for baseband architecture.

MT6290 will support multimode, multiband, including TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, and GSM. We can only hope that they won’t fail to include frequencies from the Americas. We are tending towards the pessimistic glass is half empty here, and we still find it amazing that China brands have yet to implement 1900 WCDMA band in the year 2014. Cheers to hoping they wake up in Q2 2014 with MT6290.
