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!

8 A53s? Wonder why, anyone more savvy please explain?

8 A53s when clocked high enough are enough for most things.

Because A53's are cheaper and less complicated to produce. Also they use alot less power than A57's and still perform similar to A9's. So this 8x A53 setup will perform 2x as fast as a A9 quad core running at the same clockspeed

these Cortex A53's are performing better thank Krait processor at same clock speed .. it beats Snapdragon 600 it beats HTC One M7 in singlecore performance , and obviously in multicore as well

600, isn't that getting a little long in tooth? It was kind of meh, when it came out. This matches that? Idk if that's all so great today.

i said it beats Snapdragon 600, not matches it.. what i was saying is that these Cortex A53's are better than Krait Cores it is only 15 % behind Snapdragon 800 in single core and that is because snapdragon 800 is clocked at 2.3ghz .. while these are at 1.7ghz , a whole 35 % less and it obviously beats snapdragon 800 in multi core performance by a long shot due to 8 cores , but multi core performance is irrelevant , it is only useful benchmarks and you will be getting this level of performance in 200-250 $ unlocked phones Gpu is equal to Adreno 320 though that is why it is cheaper

yes, a Big bang for the buck. I want to see it in usage though, not throwing benches under bus as everyone does, I'm just very used to the devil we have an know now. That will quantify it one way or another for myself.

check youtube for Mt6752 performance in real life usage.. the problem with mediatek is their lousy driver support and thus less activity in mod community .. but that is slowly changing if they can fix that, then they pretty much overpower snapdragon in every way for mid range phones.. we are far past the point where a user will feel performance difference in real life usage for basic tasks between mid range and high end phones.. most of them are coming with 2gb ram and 1080p display for 250 $ But USA is a different market , it will take 2 years to make a serious impact as people are used to buying flagships on contract so mediatek is not targeting that market yet, but their focus is on prepaid phones and 0-50$ contract phones in high end it is exynos that will overpower snapdragon

Good post, thank you for your particular insight. Food for thought on how this all may turn out in the next couple years. QC is in a pickle.

It seems qualcomm's tarnished reputation with the 810 has led to an opening of other chipmakers. Soon, more and more smartphones will use other chips other than qualcomm in the US. Which is good, because it creates competition and innovation. Looking forward to them entering the market, as well as maybe samsung as well.

Huh? It takes more than one idiotic false claim of "overheating" to tarnish Qualcomm's reputation. Those reports were based on one person's lack of understanding on the subject of thermal management in mobile SoC's.

It was all over the next place...

Aww man 8th generation Mali GPU would have sweetened the midranged package.

The Mali t760 has only been seen in up to 6 core configs. While it can use up to 16 cores, so it is fast enough. No need for 8th gen yet.

8. TyrionLannister unregistered

This is a dual core T760 though

9. MrET1

Posts: 110; Member since: Jan 29, 2015

Which is enough for midrange performance.

11. TyrionLannister unregistered

Yup, for 720p it's good enough

nope this one has a Quad core T720

Do you care to share where do you get that information from? Just asking because Mediatek is normally mute about such things.

lol , no they didn't announced it now,they announced in October when anyone that pays attention reported on it. Today it was more of a launch event.

One of the things I like is the cellular speed it can handle at 150 down and 150 up. That's a crucial detail that Qualcomm tends to ignore. 150 up means you can upload your files, you youtube videos, etc.. a whole lot faster. Most chips up til now supported 50Mbps and I believe the 810 does 100Mbps up (though correct me if I'm wrong).

Who is going to give you a pipe that big in less than 10 years?

24. Salazzi

That pipe is already here.. T-Mobile is using fiber connections to their towers which have same upload as download. They already have 150Mbps connections in many places around the US. I have personally gotten mid to high 90's here in central NY with others showing speedtests in excess of 125Mbps.

I personally think this is a good way for Chinese phone makers to start introducing they're amazing phones here in the US.

The mate 7 can take some of apple shares in the us because its an amazing set and not so expensive.but it's banned bs.
