Upgrading your MT6577 to MT6589

I got this message from Ugo. The message is this:
Hallo, I own an HDC N7300 with MT6577. I want to replace my mainboard withthe one of same model equipped by MT6589. I tried on some spare partssellers, but mainboard is not available. Is there any way to contact HDC sothey can provide this spare part, and what about MOQ? Tks in adv

I see what he wanted to do here. He might have the electronics/technical skills to do it. He wanted to replace the MT6577 main board (chipset) of his HDC N7300. MT6577 is by the way a dual-core, and the MT6589 is the quad core. While it can be possibly done, like on computers with motherboards and CPU chip; you can't.

HDC doesn't sell mainboards, or chipsets. HDC gets it MT6589 supply from MediaTek.

It is suggested that if you want to have a quad-core device, the only way you can do is buy a MT6589 android phone, out of the box.
