Earlier this year, there were rumors that chip making giant MediaTek is likely to come up with 4G enabled chipsets. Well, the company seems to be all set to compete with its rival Qualcomm that is standing at the top of the chipset industry with most flagship smartphones having its Snapdragon processing chipsets. The company is also set and geared up for its roadmap of 2015 and is most likely to come up with its two new powerful octa-core SoCs.
One of these chipsets would be MediaTek’s new 64-bit MT6753 and this is likely to arrive in the H2 of 2015. This is probably a successor to the current company top-end octa-core MT6752 Soc. This new offering is likely to sport eight Cortex A53 cores however their clock rate would be little lower as compared to the existing MT6572’s 1.7GHz, where four of its cores would be running at 1.5GHz and the remaining four at 1.3GHz. This new chipset is believed to be having an similar Mali T760 GPU aboard with the same earlier Image signal processor along with a 16MP camera support.
This new MT6753 octa-core chipset is said to have an added support for more 3G/4G bands along with a CDMA2000 1x and EVDO Rev A. this chipset would also arrive with its own toned-down version the MT6753M that would support qHD displays with 540×960 pixel resolution and up to 8MP of camera. Both these chipsets are believed to come up at the mid-range levels where MediaTek holds a strong dominance currently in the market. Well, is currently not clear whether these new chipset would be running the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop or not, but that can be quite very well expected.
