On June 15, MediaTek will launch their strongest cell phone microchip yet, the MT6595. Before the launch event, insider analyst @潘九堂 caused a storm by announcing that a yet-to-be-released 64-bit SOC would hit stores before the Chinese New Year, and that its model number is MT6795!
Product line of MTK’s LTE chips
The MT6795 is at the top of the product line of MTK’s cell phone processors and has been predicted to have more powerful specs than the MT6595 and MT6752. It looks like this is true. The MT6795 can be considered a combination of both octa-core processors, integrating the 6752’s 64-bit octa-core design with the powerful multimedia specs of the 6595.
As previously stated, the MT6795 follows a 64-bit octa-core design. It has CPU main frequency that goes up to 2.2GHz. It will probably use the ARM Cortex-A53 like the MT6752, but the upgrades in main frequency should make it more powerful than the 6752. It also uses LTE Modem, supporting LTE Cat 4 (50Mbps upstream/150Mbps downstream), TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, HSPA + 42M/11M (WCDMA), TD-SCDMA, and GSM.
The MT6795 perfectly inherits the MT6595’s excellent multimedia functions. It supports display screens with 2K resolution, 20mp Ultra HD cameras, and video codecs like the H.265 4K*2K. It still has the IMG PowerVR G6 GPU.
Mass production of the MT6795 should start before the Chinese New Year at the latest.
