MediaTek introduces the MT6753, a 64-bit true octa-core chip with full network connectivity
The other day, we told you that chip maker MediaTek was looking to break into the U.S. market. Today, it announced a new chip that could help it gain entry into many new markets, the MT6753. The 64-bit SoC will feature the Mali-T720 GPU to provide graphics for gaming and other content. The MT6753 offers eight cores based on ARM's Cortex A-53 architecture, making it a true octa-core chip with eight independent cores.

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.

Thanks for the tip!
