A few days back, we covered a news post about the possibility of MediaTek working on a 64bit quad-core chip based on Cortex-A53 cores. Well, MediaTek MT6732 is now official. MediaTek announced about the chip in MWC 2014.
MT6732 is launched to give Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 a run for its money. Both are 64 bit chips and are based on Cortex-A53 cores. The only major difference besides connectivity options is the use of different GPUs.
MT6732 uses Mali-T760 and the Snapdragon MSM8916 uses Adreno 306 as a GPU.
Only time and price tag will decide the fate of this chips. Let’s us now check the features of the MediaTek MT6732 chip.
MediaTek MT6732 Specifications
- CPU– 1.5 GHz quad-core Cortex A-53
- GPU– Mali-T760
- Support for 13MP sensor
- Connectivity- 4G LTE, HSPA+ (upto 42 Mbps down), FM Radio, Dual Band WiFi with WiFi Direct and Miracast, EDGE, Bluetooth 4.0
MediaTek MT6732 Features
- Pump Express Fast Charging Technology
- Graphics support for Open GL 3.0, Open CL 1.2 APIs
- Low-power 1080p video playback mode
- Codec supported- H.265, H.264
- 1080p video recording @ 30fps
The Pump Express Fast Charging technology halves the charging time of smartphones (vs USB charger) running on MediaTek silicon. It lets the device decide the initial voltage required for charging based on its current charge status. The voltage is then increased gradually up till 5V which also prevents the overheating issues while charging.
Devices based on MT6732 will hit the market shelves by the end of Q3 this year. MediaTek MT6752-an octa-core Cortex-A53 chip is also in the pipeline and will become available later this year.
MediaTek has also launched Super-Mid series of products having devices in the range of $79 to $399.
