After the flagship MT6795 chip, MediaTek is unveiling another 64-bit SoC, which this time around, is catered towards the mid-end of the market.
The new MT6753 combines eight 64-bit Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz with Mali-T760 graphics and LTE Cat.4 radio, covering more LTE bands than ever. Additionally, it also features CDMA 2000 1x and EVDO Rev.A, making it a true global chip that can work all across the planet.
All those cores should provide enough horse-power for full HD screens — not Quad HD, though — and 16-megapixel cameras with 1080p@30fps video recording. The mass production of the MT6753 chips is set to start in the second quarter of next year, so we expect to see the first devices rocking this SoC in Q3 2015 or perhaps a quarter later. Chinese vendors will likely be among the first ones to adopt the MT6795, though perhaps we also see few other brands like HTC and Sony launching phones with this chip, as well. We’ll let you know as soon as we have something new to add. Stay tuned in the meantime, k?
