Well, damned if I didn’t just post about MTK MT6589 / MTK6589  not being officially released until early 2013, when news pops up of Lenovo already into development of a smartphone with MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 codenamed “Arkansas”.

We already knew that MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 had been released to manufacturers for testing and proofing development, and there had been rumors of possible production models coming out as early as October, but this is the first news of an actual model in the works. Turns out rumors may be true – Lenovo may release “Arkansas” in October.

Leave it to Lenovo to lead the pack once again. The specifications are juicy:

I’ve really liked the looks of Lenovo’s last few phones. The a789 and the a660 look great. I’m guessing this phone will be a slick looker as well.

Purchase or wait? We all know Lenovo is a power house and won’t be fooling around with this frustrating pre-order and wait game. We really could see an MTK MT6589 / MTK6589 as early as next month.

Keep in mind that this is still rumor. But the rumors are strong, and not far fetched as we know proofing samples were already released to manufacturers.
