MediaTek is getting prepared to announce its second-generation, mid-range octa-core processor by year’s end, and today’s evidence highlights the company’s upcoming intention. The MediaTek MT6755 processor, known also as the MediaTek Helio P10, is said to provide support for Full HD, 1080p displays, 21MP back cameras as well as 16MP+8MP dual camera setups, first-time LTE category 6 support, Ultra HD video recording for back cameras along with 2Ghz clocked speeds for its eight Cortex A53 cores.

Documents mention the MediaTek MT6755 processor under “CPU,” and a 4.6-inch, Full HD display is hinted at in the GFXBench documentation. MediaTek will utilize the new Mali T860 GPU, as opposed to the current Mali T760 GPU with the first-generation, mid-range MT6752 processor. The new Mali T860 GPU is 20% better-performing and consumes 70% less energy than the Mali T760, so the MediaTek MT6755 processor should perform better than its older, octa-core “sibling.” MediaTek sized up the new Mali T860 GPU against the Mali T760 GPU in the Meizu M1 Note to measure its performance.

We don’t know yet when MediaTek will announce the new MT6755 processor, but we’ll be back to bring you more when the announcement falls.

What do you think of the upcoming MediaTek MT6755 processor? Do you think it’s worth upgrading your current mid-range device for?
