Specifically, the MediaTek MT6732 chipset features four 1.5GHz 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores in a 'coherent cluster', which are coupled with a Mali-T760 GPU with 16 cores. The GPU also has support for Open GL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2 APIs.
The MT6732 chipset features an integrated multi-mode 4G LTE modem, with FDD, TDD LTE, HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, and EDGE support. Also supported is dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The company is also touting the MT6732's 'advanced multimedia features', such as low-power, 1080p, 30fps video playback; H.265 and legacy H.264 support, integrated 13-megapixel image signal processor, and support for features like PIP (Picture-in-Picture), VIV (Video in Video) and Video Face Beautifier. Also onboard is MediaTek's ClearMotion and MiraVision technologies.
MediaTek earlier in February announced its MT6595 octa-core chip to counter Qualcomm's 800 and 805 chipsets. The company's new "true octa-core" chip is capable of running all of its eight-cores simultaneously like its predecessor, and unlike compared to Samsung's Exynos Octa chip which runs only four cores at a time.
The MT6595 will sport four Cortex-A17 cores and four A7 cores running at 2.2-2.5GHz and 1.7GHz respectively. The chip will run on ARM's big.LITTLE technology along with HMP. Moreover, the new Cortex-A17 architecture is said to deliver up to 60 percent increased performance over Cortex-A9. Much like its predecessor, the MT6592, the latest MT6595 will also support 4K2K video recording and playback, and an integrated LTE radio.
