MediaTek's new chip offers full network connectivity which means it will work around the world. Among the laundry list of supported networks are TD-LTE, FDD-LTE cat. 4 (featuring data speeds as high as 150Mbps down and up), HSPA+, TD-SCDMA and EDGE. Additionally, the MT6753 is compatible with the CDMA2000 1x / EVDO Rev. A radio frequencies. It also will work with Miracast, Bluetooth 4.0 low energy and dual-band Wi-Fi.
The MT6753 can support a 1080 x 1920 resolution display at 60fps. It also will drive a 16MP camera with certain features including picture-in-picture. When it comes to video, the chip will enable H.264 1080p playback at 30fps. It also supports H.265 1080p video playback at 30fps, using less power.
MediaTek expects to start churning out the MT6753 by the end of this year's second quarter.
