Chinese chip maker MediaTek is planning to launch several new smartphone and tablet processors by year’s end. If recently leaked specs are anything to go by, the MT6795 will be one to watch.

The chip is expected to be a 64-bit, octa-core processor with clock speeds up to 2.2 GHz.


Other features include Imagination PowerVR G6200 graphics clocked at 700 MHz, support for 4K video playback and encoding at 30 frames per second in H.264 and H.265 formats, support for displays up to 2560 x 1600 pixels and cameras with up to 20 megapixel sensors.

The processor also includes support for HSPA+ and LTE and it’ll be paired with another MediaTek chip (MT663) for 802.11ac WiFi, Bleutooth, GPS, and FM radio.

According to a leaked product roadmap, MediaTek could launch the MT6795 processor around December, 2014. Other upcoming chips from the company include the slightly less powerful 1.7 GHz MT6752 8-core, ARM Cortex-A53 processor and the 1.5 GHz MT6732 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 chip.

MediaTek’s chips are popular with Chinese smartphone and tablet makers, but a growing number of devices sold in the US from companies including Lenovo, Asysm and Acer also feature MediaTek processors.

  1. Am I wrong in thinking that at least some of the top tier vendors can do all this in a single chip instead of using two? Power usage and space may be disadvantages of using these chips. Of course, price may win out…

    1. It didn’t say they were using 2 CPUs. The article was just mentioning the radio chip that goes along with it.

      1. I got that, but not all solutions require a daughter chip for the rest of the functions.

  2. Hmmm, with that time table, hard to imagine the new Nexus phone using 6795.
