New mid-range MediaTek MT6753 SoC gets listed


mediatek mt6797

Each time we do a story on MediaTek (or any of the phones powered by the new MediaTek chips), we get convinced all the more that MediaTek’s going to rock 2015. The MT6732 64-bit chip has only arrived (so has the higher-end MT6752). According to a report from China, MediaTek has already listed another chip — the MT6753 — in the mid-range category.

Seen below is a chart depicting the specifications of this new SoC. It comes with an octa-core CPU with Cortex A53 cores clocked between 1.3GHz and 1.5GHz. The SoC comes with support for up to 1920 x 1080p displays, and has ability to encode photos from 16 mega-pixel camera sensor and video up to 30fps @1080p.

Also seen alongside the MT6753 is the MT6735 chip which we first saw powering the Alcatel OneTouch PIXI 3 series phones back during the CES. With MediaTek killing it with their 64-bit offerings (many have found them to be better performers than their Snapdragon counterparts) the way they are, do you think 2015 will belong to MediaTek? Let us know what you feel about this in the comments section below.

    Am I reading incorrectly? The MT6753 seems to be slower than the MT6752 in both CPU and GPU? Maybe I need some more sleep or is it Mediatek that needs more sleep?

      GPU might not be slower …

      6752 has dual core t760
      6753 has Quad core T720

      Quad core 720 might beat dual core 760

      6753 = 6752 + better GPU performance and global 4g support

        Don’t post bullshits! It is a T720 MP2.

    Some of these chips do seem a little bit redundant, since the MT6753 is slower than the 6752 shouldn’t they have named it 6751?? Same with the 6732 and 6735, the only difference is the slightly slower GPU. To my mind this is a backwards step making the weakest part of both SoC’s even weaker!

      Better still, they should’ve named it MT6752M. That will make more sense,

        maybe they changed their name convention so people will not notice it. because you know, when a device running an M version of it’s SOC, people will avoid it.

    It;’s not just about the chips, Qualcomm has a really poor cycle so they would be in trouble but they can do special pricing to win some key designs or give early access to future chips. They invest in many phone makers and that kinda secures design wins. And then there is the licensing ,they can do favorable pricing there and this Qualcomm tax is a few % of the price of the device so quite sizable.
    The 2 big things Mediatek is lacking is high end and image. In the high end they started to play but not in the very high end yet. On image it’s not just about advertising m doing costly things. They could achieve a lot if they were more open and better communicate with the press and general public. You can’t even find detailed specs for their chips on their site. They could engage the press and through them the public ,share details and ofc on the software side they need to better their image too.

    The new ship slower in CPU & GPU, but have support to all international bands in 3G and LTE. Still i think they shouldn’t make it slower and go for faster like 2.0 aiming for high end or higher range of midlevel devices for international releases.

    GPU not just slower, 1/2 amount of cores as Mali-T760 replaced by less capable Mali-T720 http://cdn03.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Mali-T720-and-T760-graph.png

    What about Wolfon sound chips? Which SoC will have them integrated? I was under impression that MT6752 has it, but after googling around I found it to be false, as only source of it links to other source where it doesn’t specifically says so, except for MT6595.

      its not like that …

      6752 has dual core Mali T760
      while 6753 has quad core Mali T720 …

      so in gpu 6753 might be ahead

    This actually is a bad cut MT6752. They switched back to A53 rev 1 & they had rev 2 on MT6752, really insane. The MALI 720 is striped down T760 (for ALU rop) & there for it will perform 30% less.
    Not only that it doesn’t make any sense to do something like this but it’s actually retarded. I really don’t know what kind of monkey is running thing’s at Mediatek but it’s not dressed up one.

    Weird to release these unnecessary chipsets. 659567326752 is all you need, these new ones are just slower and crappier.

    so Mali-T720 mp4, gives you the same results in GPU GFLOPS, and its cheaper.
    the problem : older GPU.
    i would like a newer GPU and more cores.

    wonder the antutu results…
