MediaTek's record 480fps slow motion recording gets a BMX stunt promo video

MediaTek's record 480fps slow motion recording gets a BMX stunt promo video
MediaTek has a monster of a mobile chipset incoming, the MT6795, and issued a promo video touting its virtues. It is an octa-core endeavor, with up to 2.2 GHz clock speeds, and the cores are arranged in ARM's big.LITTLE configuration. MediaTek doesn't cite the cores architecture, but, given that it is a 64-bit processor, the MT6795 probably flaunts ARM's Cortex-A57 cores.

The powerful silicon has other tricks up its sleeve, too, such as 2K display support, 120MHz refresh rate, and ClearMotion technology, but perhaps the most impressive of its abilities is the slow-motion video support. 

MediaTek's MT6795 is apparently the world's first smartphone SoC that can capture 1/16-speed video, and the company's BMX stunt video below comes to demonstrate 1080p slow-mo recording with the impressive 480fps. Check it out, as between this one, Snapdragon 810, and Samsung's new 14nm Exynos, the mobile chipset war has never been that heated as this year.

Very nice, but can it record and play at 2160p 60 fps I hope 2160p 60 fps or even 1080p 60 fps becomes mainstream with more efficient codecs like HEVC/H.265 or VP9 30 fps needs to come to an end

Ok but what smartphone camera chip is able to capture enough light in 1/480 of a second ?

If you mean what sensor, MediaTek said Super Slow Motion would only work with IMX220

They do. The sensitive light sensors are attatched to a silicon chip so it can be translated to computer code.

"120MHz refresh rate" is a typo.

1/1,600,000 speed. That's super duper slow-mo. Haha.

At NO point does it say it records 1080p at 480fps. It ALWAYS takes about the ability to playback video in slow motion.

The mobile chipset war is heated, alright. Just ask SD810 :P

Mediatek is really uping their game this year. 2015 will be a hard year for qualcomm with Mediatek, Samsung and Huawei releasing their next gen hardware.
