In a latest attempt to take on Qualcomm and Intel, MediaTek--the leading chipset maker, today introduces its first 64-bit LTE chip at the Mobile World Congress in Spain.
The mobile chipset war further deepens with the coming of MediaTek MT6732. The 64-bit chipset will target low-to-mid range devices.
The MediaTek MT6732 features a 64-bit ARM quad-core (1.5GHz) ARM Cortex-A53 processor system, delivering the performance boost and 64-bit CPUs that will become mainstream in mobile devices", the Hsinchu-based company said in a press release.
MediaTek says the MT6732 platform will be commercially available by Q3 of 2014, with devices expected by the end of the year. Last month, the chip giant had announced the MT6595, the world's first 4G LTE-enabled octa-core chip for mobile devices.
"We are committed to power devices that accelerate the global demographic and cultural transformation. Inclusiveness is such an important part of MediaTek's vision, which is why we strive to put technology in the hands of everyone, to enable everyone to be an everyday genius" said Johan Lodenius, Chief Marketing Officer for MediaTek.
The MT6732 chipset supports low-power and 1080p Full HD video playback, as well as Full HD video recording. The chipset also support TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE networks. It also works well with Bluetooth 4.0, supporting low-power connection to fitness gadgets, wearables and other accessories such as Bluetooth headsets.
