Today, MediaTek formally launched the MT6595 chipset at Shenzhen. This is the first chipset that MTK has made that is heading for the high-end market. Now, everyone in the industry asks, which phone will use it first.
The answer is Coolpad’s new phone, the Dashen F2. Coolpad Electronics CEO, Zhu Fanghao, announced that the lasted installment in the Dashen series will be released this October. According to Mr. Zhu, the Dashen F2 will be the first device to use the MT6595.
Nothing else has been revealed about the Coolpad Dashen F2’s specs and features other than the fact that it uses the MT6595 chipset and supports dual-SIM cards.
The price of the Dashen F1 was 888 RMB (143 USD) which brought down octa-core smart phone prices to a new low. This time, Coolpad has clearly stated that the F2 will stay at around 1000 RMB (161.02 USD). Nevertheless, the Dashen F2 will definitely be worth the wait.
