MediaTek’s new MT6795 chip supports 480fps 1080p video and 120Hz displays

MediaTek ChipMediaTek has announced a monster of a SoC in the form of the MT6795 chipset. MediaTek says that the flagship MT6795 is the “first 64-bit, LTE, True Octa-core” chip and the first to offer 2K (2560×1600) display support.

This new chip has been designed to compete head-on with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset. It certainly offers some compelling features such as extreme slow-motion video, supporting 480fps FHD video recording (playback at 1/16 speed) and 120Hz displays (in partnership with Japan Display Inc) for a super smooth scrolling experience.

The chip will feature clock speeds up to 2.2GHz and dual-channel LPDDR3 RAM clocked at 933MHz. MediaTek MT6795-powered devices will be commercially available by the end of 2014.

Recent rumours have pointed to a number of MediaTek-powered Sony Xperia devices to launch in 2015. There is a chance that one of these chips could be included. Other chipsets in the MediaTek portfolio include the more mainstream MT6752 and entry-level MT6732 chips.

Thanks Zymo!

    Wow! Sounds really nice! Lets hope qualcomm can compete with that. 120 hz displays is something to look forward to.

  • Luca

    This is the first MediaTek processor that actually seems acceptable.

  • shanefalco

    if sony will use it for sure overheating problems

  • Nick

    The only thing I’m reading here is more and more battety drain…

    http://www.gsmarena.com/mediatek_exhibits_its_mt6595_chipset_with_integrated_lte-news-8291.php they destroyed qualcomm and exynoss media tek all the way and its a 32 bit one they didnt benchmark 64 yet

    MTK proccys are actually more battery friendly than their Snapdragon counterparts.

    benchmarks tend to just be a number, they dont really tell real world use, that being said I have always preferred PowerVR GPU’s over Adreno. Proper competition for high end SoC’s are only good for the consumer and will help bring down prices and move forward innovation.

  • John Zakaria

    Now what is LPDDR3
    I am only aware of DDR3,4 or GDDR5 ?
    What does those LP do ?

  • Ingus Keivs

    I’ve heard, that the devices with Mediatek hardware inside very rarely receives a newer Android versions, it’s due that, the driver source codes aren’t available

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    I dont get it.. If it was the first chip that support 2k display . thats means the current device that offering 2k display were just a gimmic or what??

  • theskig

    Dual sim support?

  • Pineda R.

    Hz and Resolution are two different things.
    Hz is something like in the TV. (smh. like fps on games)

  • ChrisH

    MediaTek has a bad updates

  • Velexas

    Low power :)

  • Specualtions

    Any speculations that Sony will be jumping ship from Snapdragon to MediaTek?

  • mrkpoplover

    he is saying all these features will take more battery

  • John Zakaria

    Thanks !

  • HardyHarHar

    Probably on their mid end devices. I don’t see them doing this on high end devices considering that the high end devices are the market for the modding community and Mediatek isn’t really good with being open source. So yes maybe this will be a good target to those spec whore average users.

  • Sreekanth Namboothiri

    Then please spend sometime to make some manual lenses for phones.
    I will leave RED Epic and will start shooting in phones :D
    also an external SSD recording option ;)

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Thanks for the info. :-)

  • Peply

    so does Sony – perfect processor for them :D

    current flagships are more and more expensive and less and less innovative…

    thats because all there really is that is great out there is Qualcomm, Exynos are locked down and generally suck compared to high end Qualcomm chips. Hell besides Samsung tablets in the U.S. there is hardly any Exynos powered devices in the U.S. hence there needs to be much more competition to help bring prices down. I believe MediaTek is locked down tighter than a virgins legs as well too.

  • Guest

    wow noob you don’t even know about voltage scaling ?

  • Mohammed Khired

    and the price ?

  • In Paper

    These are all just in theory. Not saying that the chip doesn’t perform well but there is no use case scenario on how it would actually perform in real life yet.

  • Paul M

    Sony seem to be trying really hard of late to get out timely updates

  • Luca

    You must be fun at parties ;)
