Listed: 18 64bit MT6752, LTE phones coming in the next few weeks!


jiayu s3

We list 18 hot new Chinese smartphones launching in the next few weeks with the latest 64bit octacore MT6752 chipset.

2015 hasn’t began yet, but already we are seeing the 64bit revolution kicking off with smartphone makers choosing from what both Qualcomm and Mediatek have to offer them. So far we know of 18 Chinese smartphones which will launch in the next few weeks (couple of months) that will get the 64bit octacore treatment thanks to Mediatek. Brands ranging from Longrich (?) to big names like Vivo, Oppo and Meizu are all in there, but the big question is who will be first?

Rumour has it that Meizu are to launch their low-cost 64bit phone before Christmas this year, but we also know that iOcean and Zopo are planning to launch their phones around a similar time. The race is on!

About the Mediatek MT6752

The Mediatek MT6752 is a SoC designed and manufactured by Mediatek for use in Android smartphones. The chipset is based on a 64bit Cortex A53 architecture and features an ARM Mali T760 GPU. The chipset boasts built-in dual-mode LTE for worldwide 4G network compatibility, dual band 802,11n WIFI and Bluetooth 4.o. Phones using MT6752 processors can handle up to 16 mega-pixel main cameras and Ultra HD 4K video.

List of octacore MT6752 LTE Chinese phones so far

[table id=180 /]

Which company do you think will launch their MT6752 smartphone first? We plan to update this list as new phones are leaked and announced.

This list was complied with information from MTKSJ.

    Waiting for the list to grow…

    But if the leakings means something the Jiayu S3 will be the first to hit the market.

    You can preorder them actually.

    • December 9, 2014

      According to the JiaYu forum the launch is January, but when I spoke to JiaYu they said it might be closer to Feb…

        Why Jiayu..why?..My G3 is almost out of order and i am hoping i can directly buy S3 without intermediate low specs phone!

        For the 3GB S3 version, are we going to wait even longer then?

      • geronimonster
        December 10, 2014

        That probably means March at the earliest then!

        Andi, any news from Jiayu on the S4?

          jiayu s3 for sure, if the international price stays close to this amazin 162 dollar ! (just bought a xiaomi note 4g for 168 $ LOL )

            If I don’t hear anything about Jiayu S4 I’ll get the S3. I would prefer a smaller phone (like the G5S I currently have) but I haven’t heard anything about the S4 lately.

    • December 10, 2014

      Jiayu S3 advanced it is for me too

    • percyjacksons
      June 10, 2015

      The s3 advance is getting lollipop. But do you think it will get Android M? Or will jiayu make this phone obsolete after giving the lollipop update?

    I was on the bandwagon for the Umi Zero. Almost ordered, just to see it’s a preorder shipping earliest on december 30th… In the meantime there will be 64bit LTE phones available that will be cheaper than the Umi… just waiting a bit longer….it’s quite a bit of Moore’s Law… waiting for the right moment to buy new hardware, just to see it been surpassed by newer and way better stuff…..
    Maybe a thread where this can be discussed?
    “What’s the right moment to step in?”

    Spec sheets are all well and fine. But I really really wish/hope that these OEMs especially the one supplying the SoC to them aka MediaTek can ante it up on the code side of things and open up to international standards. You just can’t do Android the closed way unless you’re MS or God forbid Apple-good at puling it off with in-house dev teams.

    Even Samsung the biggest gorilla in the room so far are faring poorly with their Exynos line in terms of speedier Android ver upds and external/indie/custom ROMs’ support because they chose to close the key parts off.

    All that processing firepower can’t/wont make up for when people realize that their 1 year old phones can only deal with 3 firmware/software updates down the road.

    • mfmx
      December 17, 2014

      Normal users don’t give a c**p about indie or custom ROMS.

      • The Calm Critic
        December 18, 2014

        Well they should…And 1st understand what things mean before they complain down the road why won’t their phones get fw/app updates fast enough. It’s not solely about indie or custom ROMs. Downstream fixes and patches can be applied to upstream kernels, firmwares and even apps if community devs can look at what’s going on transparently.

        Most in-house devs from literally all of 90% Android OEMs combined are not inept, just locked down by their bosses from asking or looking at outside help. If it’s a diff policy that they can engage, contribute and take back whatever they need to improve or fix things that they can’t do themselves. If you think outfits like Samsung or HTC >never ever< look at outside code you got another thing coming.

        "Normal" users who are dumb enough to expect some walled garden "quality" from Android in a closed fashion are either naive and/or are using the wrong OS. They should use iOS, WP hell even BB and even then there's no guarantee. Look at iOS 8 at its rel date for example; marred by significant bugs followed by fixes that didn't really fix anything and that came from what's probably the world's most overpaid in-house dev team.

    • Marco Lancaster

      I actually hope the things turn to be more easy, Mediatek is different these days, with the Android One devices, we’re seeing updates more frequently, a year ago we’ll never seen a SoC update, how many MTK6577 and MTK6589 just died without receive any update? Now the things are a little better, we see most branded MTK6582 getting 4.4.2 and MTK6592 too, hopefully in the next year the things will get better, maybe the Malasyian giant can stop the bulshit and open herself to devs. I’m not a normal user of course, and I choose Jiayu S3 Advanced, but i higly want a clear stock 5.0 build on it, not skinned version of Jiayu.

    JiaYu S3 will be great hardware for that price, only problem is software, Almost all chinese manufacturer do not care for their customers after you purchase a phone. No software update like Samsung/HTC/LG/Sony … except bigger company like Xiaomi. So JiaYu is great if you buying phone to last 1 year. ‘cos 1 year from now there will be android 6.0 out and you will be stuck at 4.4. That’s reason why I choose bigger brands, you pay more at beginning but you can have OTA update and have bugs removed from OS even 1 year after you purchase a phone.

    sadly so many 5,5″ devices ~

    hello andi i ot a questions ~

    what would you suggest? i currently got the oneplus one and i’m really happy but its a bit to big for me… and the vivo xshot is a bit to expensive for me.. i’m looking for 4,5-5,2″ device (5×2 inch with very slim bezel)

    any recommendations?

    requirements ~

    720p display
    2gb ram
    smooth like my oneplus
    good camera quality (atleast on par with oneplus)
    good battery life.. my oneplus is a battery wonder..i dont expect it from the new one but it should atleast get me through the day.

    how is the performance of the 6752, are there already any kind of.. i dont know..benchmarks?

    someone said the new chipset should be on par with the kirin 920 which should be enough for me..i just want smooth performance… i also clocked my oneplus down to 1,9ghz.

    Neither the Oppo (U3) nor the Meizu (K52) will have a 4.6 Full HD display. They are only listed as such by a faulty GFXBench. Basically, the smallest device in the list is a 5″ smartphone (One of the aforementioned devices).

    64-bit is just useless hype that will change nothing, we need more LTE bands supported and better software.

    Just got jiayu s3 2gb. No 4g/LTE in USA – wrong bands. Constantly loosing 3g connection. Takes long time to register on network. I would return it if u could. Sorry compared to my year old nexus 5 this jiayu is not worth its $200. Look further.
