MediaTek to launch three 64-bit SoCs

Starting in Q4 2014

MediaTek is planning to release three 64-bit SoCs in the fourth quarter of 2014.

A leaked roadmap, picked up by Gizchina, indicates that the three chips will cover three distinct market segments, from entry level LTE to premium LTE. However, the latter is a stretch, as we are talking about Cortex A53 parts.

The MT6732 packs four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz. It supports 1080p video and 13-megapixel cameras. The MT6732 was originally announced in late February

The mid-range MT 6752 is a pin-compatible Cortex A53 octa-core clocked at 1.7GHz. The spec also points to a somewhat faster GPU, but MediaTek did not name the GPU in question. 

The ‘premium’ part is the MT6795, an octa-core design clocked at 2.2GHz. However, MediaTek is not saying whether it is a Cortex A53 design or possibly a big.LITTLE design backed by vastly more powerful Cortex A57 cores. Previous leaks point to a big.LITTLE configuration, but this is not something we can confirm at this point.
