Hopes for a 2012 release may be dashed. I wouldn’t put it entirely out of the realm of possibility, as MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 CPUs have already been successfully implemented in test units, but MTK is officially stating that the MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 will be released in “early 2013”.

So for those of you holding out for MTK MT6589 / MTK6589, I would guess a 4 month wait minimum before we actually see MTK6588 phones available at the retail level.

If you haven’t already done so, please check out “Buy now or wait” as to Gizbeat’s thoughts on the matter of purchasing mtk mt6577 / mtk6577 or waiting for MTK MT6589 / MTK6589.
