It appears that we’re about to see more cheap and inexpensive Mediatek-powered 1080p smartphones on the horizon. We already knew that Sony was making plans on introducing some quad-core devices for a budget price– but Lenovo, Huawei and ZTE are among 20 or so manufacturers expected to launch devices with the MediaTek MT6589 quad-core chip. In case you’ve forgotten, the MT6589 is an ARM Cortex A7-based units that utilizes all the bells and whistles that can be found in competing chipsets, but at a fraction of the cost. The result is the ability to see some pretty sexy smartphones with 1080p capabilities for a low, low price– just like what we’ve seen with the world’s cheapest smartphone that was recently introduced.

Expect to see the a bigger batch of Mediatek-powered 1080p to be shipped between now and April.
