MediaTek’s MT6795 processor, which will be available by the end of the year, is a ‘true’ octa-core solution with LTE and 2K (1600 x 2500 pixel resolution) display support.

It’s a 64-bit chip, which is a break from MediaTek’s usual target market — the company has focused on mid-range devices in the past, and this chip is certainly catered to the higher end phones. It runs at up to 2.2 GHz and has dual-channel LPDDR3 memory up to 933 MHz.

The chip will let you play back 480 FPS 1080p full HD videos at 1/16 the original speed, at 30 FPS. You’ll also be able to record and playback 4K Ultra HD videos while using less power.

The high-end chips’s launch  comes alongside the MT6752 for mid-range phones and the MT67932 for entry-level phones. Hit the break for the full press release from MediaTek and a video of the chip in action.

MediaTek processors are starting to be used more and more in not only the Asian market, but also in the western hemisphere. Recent rumors suggest that Google is working on a budget Nexus smartphone that will feature a MediaTek 64-bit processor. Now there are rumors suggesting that Amazon will be using a MediaTek MT8135 in their upcoming refresh of the entry-level Kindle Fire tablets.

MediaTek initially dismissed the idea that they would be working with Amazon, but also said that they would try and close a deal with any potential clients. Reports today came in saying that Amazon would indeed use MediaTek to process some of their tablets, but we do not yet know if MediaTek chipsets will power the entire Kindle Fire line or just the entry-level devices.

Low-cost Google Nexus phone may use 64-bit MediaTek chip

A new report out of China indicates the low-price Google Nexus device we heard about will be powered by a 64-bit MediaTek processor. The earlier rumor had mentioned MediaTek may be partnering with Google to provide chips for the devices as their chips are generally much lower cost than those from a company like Qualcomm and their high end Snapdragon processors. It appears Google is targeting a $100 price point for this new device as a way to get into the lower end of the market or to expand to emerging markets around the globe, so a low-cost chip is a requirement. Even though MediaTek’s chips use a 64-bit architecture, they are not intended for high end devices. » Read the rest

MediaTek has announced that they have successfully created a way technology that allows wireless charging to take place regardless of the equipment being used. While it is not ready for immediate production, it will solve a big issue with wireless charging

There are many different wireless charging solutions; therefore, a person’s tablet and smartphone may not use the same wireless charging technology. Also, they require a very precise position on a charging pad. MediaTek’s solution would allow devices to be laid anywhere on the charging pad without having to worry about the position. More interestingly, it may allow to charge through walls. It is that incredible. Hit the source link to read more about what MediaTek is working on.
