MediaTek's upcoming chipset will provide mobile connectivity, performance and more for less

October 27, 2014 by Omar Sohail

Gone are the days when you had to spend a ludicrous amount of money on a mobile device just so you could enjoy making that crisp and pristine sounding free international call.

In addition to Qualcomm’s upcoming cost effective chipset, named the Snapdragon 210, MediaTek has also jumped in to the bandwagon of providing users with smartphones housing the company’s chipsets that not only provide LTE connectivity and impressive wireless connectivity performance to fuel their never ending conversations on VoIP apps, but also deliver eye boggling performance that will go easy on the consumer’s wallet. Here is how MediaTek’s chipset will provide consumers with more for less.

The MediaTek MT6795 chipset

Most tech aficionados prefer to know technical information of a particular product so they can judge for themselves how efficient it is going to be when stressed under all categories. The upcoming chipset is going to be called the MT6795 and it is going to be designed to be the company’s first ever 64 bit processor (which have their own never ending benefits, targeting both the operating system as well as taxing applications such as VoIP apps). Apart from being a 64 bit processor, the clock speed of each core will be 2.2 GHz, and there will be a total of 8 cores on the processor, resulting in the making of an octa core processor.

While having an octa core processor comes with several benefits, it also comes with some deleterious effects. One of them happens to be faster drainage of battery, thanks to the extra work being done by all 8 cores. Fortunately for users, the new processor will feature MediaTek's CorePilot; a feature that maximizes the output and work flow of all eight chip cores and keeps temperature under control, which minimizes battery usage, even when all 8 cores are functioning at their core processing abilities. This will be resourceful, especially in a situation when a smartphone user is engaged in making a free international call using the device’s LTE modem; a situation which drains battery life faster than a Wi-Fi network.

In addition, the chipset will also be equipped with dual channel LP (low profile) DDR 3 RAM for maximum memory bandwidth. Since the chipset possesses such high class features, the company also proceeded forward and stuffed an 802.11 ac wireless adapter.

Now, it is no secret that VoIP app users, who are engaged in making a VoIP call for several hours, will find that their handsets run out of battery at an alarming rate, forcing them to hardwire their devices for yet another round of battery charge. MediaTek decided to close the gap of this limitation and included a multimode wireless charging feature with MediaTek's multimode wireless power receiver IC.

Other chipsets to be released in the future

While the MT6795 is yet to be incorporated in to mobile devices, the company has delivered a teaser to how the company will target the lowest segment of the market, thanks to its MT6752 chipset for the mainstream market and the MT6732 for the entry level market. While all three chipsets will have a substantial gap in processing power, the addition of the company’s in built LTE modem will ensure that even the cheapest of devices will provide users will free international call making abilities.
