First Benchmark of MediaTek MT6589 SoC based Micromax A116

Benchmark result of Micromax A116 revealed

Late last year, MediaTek has announced its new SoC called MT6589.It is comprised of Quad core ARM Cortex-A7 processor and PowerVR Series5XT GPU from Imagination Technologies. For now, Liliputing has revealed the first benchmarks of a Smartphone based on MediaTek MT6589 SoC.

The Smartphone with MediaTek MT6589 is Micromax A116. It has screen of 5 inches, 1GB of DRAM, 4GB of storage, dual SIM and various other excellent features. Moreover, it runs with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system and is currently available for the price of U.S $ 277 in India.

From the result it is obvious that, MediaTek MT6589 Quad Cortex-A7 behaves similar to Quad core Cortex-A9 SoC. It has been found that Micromax A116 Canvas HD is a Smartphone that is quite impressive.

Micromax Canvas HD A116 vs. Other Smartphones

Most of the devices that amount to Rs. 15,000 have a dual-core processor along with 1GB or 512MB of RAM. So Micromax A116 Canvas HD when compared to other devices like Mi-530, iBall Andi 4.5q, Lenovo S560 and the HTC One V proved to be more superior.

The Micromax A116 Canvas HD outperformed other Smartphone with impressive results. In the Quadrant benchmark, the Spice Stellar Pinnacle Mi-530 scored second next to A116. The Stellar Pinnacle is a device with dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, whereas Micromax A116 is powered with quad-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.
