Sony to use more MediaTek chips for its low to mid-range phones this year
Foxconn and Compal are said to be building 4G enabled handsets for Sony Mobile that will feature MediaTek's MT6752 processor. This is a 64-bit octa-core CPU that will be found driving these low to mid-range models.
Sony's next flagship phone is expected to be the Sony Xperia Z4. Under the hood of this top-shelf phone will be the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU. That chip will be powering a large number of flagship models including the HTC One (M9) and the LG G4.
With the Xperia Z4 originally expected to be unveiled at MWC next month, it now appears that Sony does not have a media event scheduled for Barcelona although it will attend the show. Instead of releasing a new flagship model every 6 months as originally believed, it appears that Sony is returning to the one-a-year schedule. With the Sony Xperia Z3 unveiled last September 3rd, an introduction of the Xperia Z4 at MWC would have fit in perfectly with the twice-a-year format.
Sony originally claimed that going to a twice-a-year schedule allowed it to stay more competitive with its rivals. But 70% of those consumers responding to a poll said that they would rather see slower, but more inclusive updates.
