Mediatek’s MT6595 and MT6795 are real Multimedia beasts!


Yesterday, Mediatek finally announce their MT6595 and surprisingly also the MT6795 to the public. In our original post we only touched on the awesome power of these new chipsets, but there is more to them that amazing Antutu scores!

Nowadays, a good processor is a lot more than just power and benchmarks. Multimedia performace, including audio and camera features are now just as important, if not more so. Mediatek know this all to well and have enabled features in their new chipsets that we have not seen from them in the past.

Supporting up to 20 mega-pixel camera sensors is only part of it, the new MT6595 and MT6795 chipsets can record “Super Slow Motion” video. Current top of the range phones are capable of slo-mo videos of 120fps at 720p, however the new Mediatek offerings can record at a mind blowing 480fps at 1080p. We could be looking at semi-professional slow motion video caught on phones from now on! Mediatek mentioned that the Sony IMX220 sensor would be supported, other sensors are sure to follow.

In addition to slow-motion, Mediatek have reworked HDR processing. Mediatek are prosing that HDR photos taken with the new processor will look better than pictures caught with rival products. Multi-frame noise reduction, 6-axis image stabilization and advanced face beautification for videos are some of the other features thrown in for good measure too.

The audio side of the chipsets has been improved too, with an advance DAC with 110db SNR and 24-Bit, 192KHz audio codec.

Of course this is all going off what Mediatek have been telling us. We will have to see if they make good on their word once devices start shipping.

    And closed source so Android updates will happen never

  2. July 16, 2014

    lets really really hope that they sort out their closed source policy for this round of processors!
    they must see that it would help smaller manufactures get the bugs ironed out of their phones and also go someway towards making them more accessible.

    Mediatek – launches extremely powerful processor at cheap prices, all the people care about is that they can’t custom Rom it.

      What use is “extremely powerful” if a phone manufacturer ship it with buggy bloated slow outdated OS full of security holes?

        Please tell me you’re being sarcastic when you say KitKat is outdated, bloated, buggy and full of security holes.

        • desponent
          July 17, 2014

          Don’t put word on my mouth, not all phone manufacturer are going to update their OS and most of them even put many bloated app forcefully. Security holes is a fact, even kitkat will have its hole discovered sooner or later. It’s bound to happen no matter what and you’ll be stuck with for a long time or even forever thanks to closed source policy.

          You can be oblivious and don’t care about it (as long as you don’t suddenly found yourself in mysterious credit debt I guess) but don’t belittle other people who care, as soon as mediatek got a proper competitor with open sourced kernel I’ll be switching to them asap.

            Not all manufacturers are going to update their phones, sure. We already know which manufacturers are going to update their phones though, so stick to those manufacturers, not some random brand you find. And the last time I ever found a bloat on an MTK phone was on the Redmi Note, and even that wasn’t anywhere as severe as the bloat on most carrier phones. Also, if all systems are going to have security holes, why even have a phone? If you’re so paranoid, get a Blackphone. I don’t see what you’re problem with security is considering the rumors that even Google could be spying on you. It doesn’t matter what system you’re using, it will have security holes, and rooting your phone, installing a custom rom, nothing’s going to change that.

            And finding yourself in a mysterious credit card debt? That’s the WORST argument anyone’s ever gave. Anything could cause that, not just your phone. And it’s not like anyone’s forcing you to use MediaTek, there are a lot of other options like the Snapdragon 400 powered Moto G and Redmi 1S. If you’re really hell bent on switching to something open sourced, then go get one of those and stop complaining. You’re like one of those people who whine about the iPhone being too closed source.

            You could’ve also gave more logical arguments like Shanos. His/her arguments make sense and are presented in a more thoughtful manner than your arguments.

              Again it’s fine if you don’t care and scream anyone who does “paranoid” but fact is fact and I don’t care if you don’t care.

              Even established brand rarely ever update all their phone model, at least for those with opensource kernel could seek custom rom then.

              It’s not really an argument so much as passing whim, certainly didn’t think you’d use that to muddy the real issue, but do uderstand tha lots of people nowadays use their phone a lot more than a simple calling devices and it pays to be prudent but again I don’t care what you think about it just know that some people do.

              Thanks for the input mr guest.

              ps. Why indeed my next phone are probably going to be a 801 now that it’s priced competitively. Dunno why you seems to be so invested with mtk to resort to ad hominem though but okay.

              Once again, what’s the big deal with being at the top of the update board? Is it a vanity factor? It’s not like there’s much of a difference between Kitkat and Jelly Bean in actual usage. And people do use their phones as more than calling devices, what does that have to do with the situation? Plus, if you are jumping on the Snapdragon 801 boat, (on a more friendly note, what phone is it?) why even bother commenting on a MTK article?

              Thanks for the laugh, I always enjoy you trolling this site criticizing everyone else whilst not ever posting anything meaningful. These ‘holes’ you speak of in android, not quite sure how you Qualcomm fanboys think using one of their Soc’s suddenly fixes them! lol

              This thread seems to have gone completely off topic as it often does when mediatek are involved as we always seems to end up with the Qualcomm fans belittling them just to make them feel better about the fact that they’ve paid a much higher price for basically the same hardware.

              Thanks for the insult as your kind really quick to jump whenever they can’t actually form any argument.

              The hole is well documented and you’re free to look for it yourself. You can buy a high end 801 phone for less than $300 now if you know where to look, there’s nothing “much higher”, mediatek should up their game if they don’t want to be blindsided. Note that doing so will benefit someone who don’t want to look at things critically like you too but feel free to keep attacking people who critize your dear company.

              He’s provided an argument. He’s saying that just because a phone has a Qualcomm SoC does not mean it’s protected from security issues. And he’s not criticizing you for “attacking his beloved company”, he’s criticizing you for about your weak argument, which I’ve already stated before this. And no, I’m not attacking you here. Just pointing this out.

      it’s not that we don’t appreciate the lower prices..just that this is Android and modding plays a huge role in it. Sure not everyone likes to tinker with the stock roms but the ability to create/port/cook your own customized stuff not to mention the awesome roms available is really exciting..Take an example where you buy a Jiayu smartphone that comes with MIUI?? and you get tired of it, wouldn’t you want a scenario where you could flash AOSP or color ui e.t.c

      Still, MediaTek has come along way and we are starting to see them open up a lot more and its only going to get better with time…

    • July 17, 2014

      GPS won’t suck anymore with the new chipsets. Also that is mostly the fault of manufacturers who build crappy antennas into their phones. But the new chips will support GLONASS and stuff, so even crappy antennas should reach quite a good performance thanks to more satellites being available.
