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.
