MediaTek MT6732 announced, 64-bit LTE chipset
MediaTek, the company whose chipsets power most of the budget smartphones these days has just announced a brand new 64-bit chipset dubbed MediaTek MT6732.
The MediaTek MT6732 SoC features four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz coupled with the next gen Mali-T670 GPU. The new GPU supports Open GL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2 APIs for latest high-end graphics. The chipset also comes with an integrated LTE modem of category 4 which means download speeds of 150Mb/s.
The chipsets supports the usual 1080p 30FPS video playback and there’s support for H.265 as well. The MediaTek MT6732 supports 13MP cameras with new features like PIP (Picture-in-Picture), VIV (Video in Video), Video Face Beautifier and MediaTek’s ClearMotion tech which eliminates motion jitter and ensures smooth video playback at 60fps along with the MiraVision tech for D0TV-grade picture quality.
Other than LTE support, MediaTek MT6732 will support HSPA+ (42Mb/s download), TD-SCDMA, and EDGE. Dual-band WI-Fi with Miracast and Bluetooth 4.0 are also supported.
With the launch of the MediaTek MT6732, MediaTek plans to capture market share on the “super-mid” smartphone range which are the smartphones that offer “premium features at mainstream prices”. We are pretty sure this move by MediaTek will bring 64-bit chipsets to the masses. The MediaTek MT6732 will be available in Q3 2014 and we can expect to see plethora of devices featuring the chipset by the end of the year.
