MediaTek MT6795 delivers 64-bit support and LTE

Written by Fudzilla staff

Octa-core of course

MediaTek has officially announced the MT6795 SoC, which it describes as a true octa-core 64-bit chip.

There is a catch though. When MediaTek says “true” octa-core, it usually refers to chips based on the same core, not big.LITTLE designs. Last year it rolled out a “true” octa-core based on ARM’s Cortex A7 architecture, but this time it isn’t saying which cores are used in the MT6795, although everything points to eight Cortex A53 cores.

The chip can hit 2.2GHz, it supports LPDDR3 at up to 933MHz and it can handle 2K displays up to 120Hz. Internally the chip support s H.265 and VP9 playback at UHD resolutions. The unnamed GPU can also cope with super slow motion video, at a staggering 480fps in 1080p mode.

The chip also comes with LTE (Cat 4 FDD and TDD LTE). It also supports 802.11ac.

Although many commentators are describing the chip as MediaTek’s foray into the high end, this looks like a mid-range part. We'll know more once the full spec emerges.
