A low to mid range mobile phone chip maker MediaTek is trying pretty hard to put across a big fight with the players in the chip-making business like Qualcomm. Now the company is reportedly said to be putting a bit more effort on its latest chip which can support LTE connectivity. Earlier this month, MediaTek was rumored to come up with a MT6595 chip, which would combine a Cortex A17 based quad core chip with a 4G LTE modem.
However, the company is all ready to launch the latest chip with the similar mechanism. It is called by the model name MT6732 and the chip will do just that. In fact, the MediaTek MT6732 is a 64 bit quad core chipset with a built in 4G LTE modem. The device will be unveiled with the chipset at the Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona next week. But the chipset will be made available in the Q3 this year. The MT6372 is, in fact, designed to compete against Qualcomm's 64-bit Snapdragon 410 in the entry and mid-range LTE phone segments.
On the other hand, the company is also said to be planning a high-end octa core 64 bit LTE enabled chip called MT6752 for Q4 2014. But according to the varied reports on line, this one as well might get unveiled at the MWC 2014.
According to other reports, both the chips have integrated support for WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, GSM, LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD. The chipsets utilize Cortex-A53 cores, based on the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set.
