New octa-core smartphone chip brings 480fps super slow-motion
There’s a new smartphone system chip in town that enables some fascinating new features. The MediaTek-made MT6795 is what the company calls a ‘true’ octa-core solution with LTE on board and it supports 2K (1600 x 2500-pixel resolution) displays.

The MT6795 is a 64-bit chip made for premium Android devices. It runs at up to 2.2GHz, and features dual-channel LPDDR3 memory of up to 933MHz.

What’s really exciting about this new system chip, though, is the new technologies that it enables. The most impressive new feature of the MT6795 is support for 480 frames per second 1080p Full HD Super-Slow Motion videos running at 1/16 of the original speed (when played back at 30fps). Moreover, this chip also supports displays with refresh rates of 120Hz. The new silicon will also be capable of recording and playing back 4K Ultra HD videos while using less power.

The MT6795 comes alongside two other MediaTek 64-bit chips: the MT6752 for mid-range devices and the MT67932 for entry-level users.

The release date of the first devices with the octa-core MT6795 is set to be by the end of the year.
