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.

Agreed, Qualcomm has been lazy this year, especially the first half (the 800 was basically a higher clocked 800) I wouldn't be surprised if the A8, K1 and Samsung's new Exynos are better than the 805 However I think most Android OEMs will probably still stick with Qualcomm since (so far) they have the best efficiency and they release their source code

I would say even the s800 was not much of an improvement over the s800 (video comparison of the LG g2 vs Galaxy s4, by linking on YouTube, proved the s4 to be much quicker in opening apps. Not all but most, even though it had a s600 compared to the s800 of the g2). Both great chips, but it's clear Qualcomm is becoming lazy. Thankfully it seems, Exynos is having a come back after last year's bad performance issues, and mediatek is stepping up their game.

MediaTek is really up and coming, people don't expect them to do so well but I think they'll really take over soon since Qualcomm doesn't try anymore

Mediatek is really upping their game! Hope for increased support for future android versions!

4K not 2K. 2K display's been around for 2 years, see Nexus 10.

Also people need to stop using 2K, its too vague 2K was a fillm res, but now it means any resolution with around 2000 horizontal pixels, which includes QHD (1440p), FHD (1080p), 2048x1080 (original), 1600p and many more

Doesnt matter, Qualcomm will always be the 1st choice. Unless MediaTek starts to share open source code like Qualcomm does.

It must be considerably stronger or way stronger than 801 since it can only max out 120fps on 720p.

It also proves how sh*t the A7 chip really is.. It records 120fps 480p and then scales to 720 when done..

A7 a sh*t ? Seriously ?

well Graphically its good but when it comes to true CPU horseload it isnt that great. its still better than mid-end devices :p

And btw from where you got it upscales 480p to 720p ? That would look horible.

Interesting, hopefully this spurs QC into a little faster innovation, they have been stagnate.

And what kind sensor is needed to make such high fps ? Oh one in a really high end camera.

If you shoot a 10 sec video with 480 fps how much is the size of that file? lol
