Mediatek show off the super slow motion capability of the MT6795


The octacore Mediatek MT6795 is a powerful piece of kit that’s for sure, but along with blazing performance it also packs a neat super slow motion feature.

Mediatek are shaping up to be the victors of 2015 and the MT6795 processor will be part of the reason they do so well. The chipset offers all the hot features (octacore, LTE, 64bit) that we expect from a flagship processor along with some great camera features.

One feature that Mediatek are especially excited about is the ability to record super slow motion video. Currently slow motion 120fps video can only be captured at 720p, but the latest Mediatek chip manages a whopping 480fps at 1080p!

The video below gives us a small taster of what we can expect from the video features on up coming MT6795 phones, we cannot wait to try one out!

Thanks to Wilson Appiah over on the Gizchina Tech Fans group for posting the link.

    Not many phones used the 6595 chip I’m guessing the new chip is a failure too.

      I am wondering why nobody is using the 6595. Big.little architecture sounds good on the paper at least. People report that the battery consumtion of the Zopo phone is terrible though.

      Depend on when they will release this. If they release it after most MT6752 launched and close to Cortex A72-equipped phone’s launch then they only have themselves to blame.

      I guess MT6595 isn’t cheap enough for the target market. Because it uses 4 large cores. Or if it had more powerful GPU let’s say 4 cluster instead of 2 it would attract even some non-Chinese brands.

      Seems like MT6795 already delayed 2 months, but if it is an octacore A53 could be cheaper than MT6595, actually it’s price could be closer to MT6752. So despite being a bit slower than MT6595 it could be more successful than it’s predecessor.

      it’s not that much used because 64bit SoC’s were launched just after a couple of months by Mediatek itself, so everyone wanted to use them (as they also cost less), the 6595 is a pretty nice SoC but was killed by mediatek itself because of poor timing strategies (just like the almost unused exacore mt6591), but it seems the 6795 will have much more luck, since it’s the only high end SoC from Mediatek until Q4 at least.

      I think that the MT6595 in fact is a “second tire” SoC to be the flagship performance-wise until the MT6795 will be out and take over, As I see it MediaTek knew that they will need some time for the MT6795 so they chose to announce a “demo version” (Same GPU different clock speed) instead of waiting and make potential customers loose interest.
      Just like Nvidia did when right before the Tegra K1 born, They took a basically tad-improved Tegra 4 CPU unit and combined it with a Kepler GPU and we’ve got the Tegra K1 32 Bit version.

      6595 is the most powerfull 32bit SoC now, but it’s not used coz it’s not 64bit. Just marketing reasons

    from Mediatek:
    “MediaTek presents the world’s first Super-Slow Motion video playback for
    smartphones. Playback at up to 1/16-speed, and you can savor every
    moment of the action in smooth Full HD slow-motion. With full editing
    control on the video timeline, now everyone can enjoy professional
    special effects without expensive video cameras and specialist software.”

    and from gizchina.com:
    “One feature that Mediatek are especially excited about is the ability to
    record super slow motion video. Currently slow motion 120fps video can
    only be captured at 720p, but the latest Mediatek chip manages a
    whopping 480fps at 1080p!”

    Who to believe? Mediatek with “smooth Full HD slow-motion PLAYBACK” or gizchina.com with “ability to RECORD super slow motion video”

    • חתול תעלול

      The real deal is the ability to record Full HD in 480 fps which is pretty amazing BUT you’ll also need a special (very high speed) camera that can shoot 480 ~2.1MP pictures in one second. currently I think that only the Sony IMX220 is capable of capturing/filming at that speed.
      bear in mind that a few minutes video’s size will be humongous!

    Judging from the video, is not 480 FPS video.
    It’s 240 FPS one, played back at 15 FPS (not smooth enough).

    Still a good feature, being able to record FHD at 240 FPS, just not as good as they make it seem.

    So i suggest:
    > 2160p@60fps or even 120fps
    > 720p@960fps with Audio and RealTime
    > 480p@1536fps or even 2048 fps, if sensor is fast enough
    > Burst Shot – very high speed at Full Resolution
    > Instant HDR Burst
    > 0,3 Sec Camera Start
    > Zero Pause Lag/Delay like iPhone 6+ amd S3 butalso for HDR-Shots –
    > Slow-Motion HDR-Video
    > Full-Resolution Still Image while Slow Motion Recording (but not at 1080p@480fps, because the CPU-Usage is already at 98 %)
    > 4320p Video Recording for Phones with enough Sensor Resolution and Speed
    > HDR-SlowMotion
    > Use as PC or ExPhone
    > Better HD-Image (as known from Oppo Find 7)

    > Use it in some High-Tech Bridge-Cameras, DSLRs and DSLM’s
    > Maximum Camera Performance due to Software (Low Light, Best HDR)
    >> LowLight can be made better by software by Capturing many photos in a row and choosing the best parts from the best photos with lower noise, shake and higher detail.

    > Boot phone in 4 Seconds, if the Flash-Memory is fast Enough
    > Calculator does NOT end at 10^308 or 2^1024.
    > Short-Circuit-Resistance (e.g. to resist/avoid irreversible Water Damage – temporairy water damage is OK.)
    > Capture Full-Res (Max Sensor Resolution) image, while recording 2160p@30fps (Full-Res-Stills 2160/60 or 1080/480 or 720/960 are too fast for the Sensor)
    > Hand-Warmer (simply record 4K-Video)

    Those strong small processors produce a LOT of heat.
    The Galaxy S could record it’s darling 720p@30fps-Video with just a little bit of heat (26ºC), but the M9 goes to 39°C Z3+ goes up to 44°C after six minutes of 4K@30fps.
