MediaTek Announces MT6595, World’s First 4G LTE Octa-Core Smartphone SOC with ARM Cortex-A17 and Ultra HD H.265 Codec Support

MediaTek Inc. is a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions.
MediaTek has recently announced the MT6595 SoC, World’s First 4G LTE Octa-Core Smartphone SOC with ARM Cortex-A17 and Ultra HD H.265 Codec Support.
With the MediaTek’s CorePilot&#0153 technology and ARM’s big.LITTLE&#0153 architecture the latest Mediatek MT6595 delivers a Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) platform that unlocks the full power of all eight cores.

Mediatek claims that they have an advanced scheduler algorithm with adaptive thermal and interactive power management that delivers superior multi-tasking performance and excellent sustained performance-per-watt for a premium mobile experience.


Performance and networking:

  • Four ARM Cortex-A17&#0153, each with significant performance improvement over previous-generation processors, plus four Cortex-A7&#0153 CPUs
  • ARM big.LITTLE&#0153 architecture with full-system coherency performs sophisticated tasks efficiently
  • Integrated Imagination Technologies PowerVR&#0153 Series6 GPU for high-performance graphics
  • Category 4 FDD and TDD LTE with data rates up to 150Mbits/s downlink and 50Mbits/s uplink
  • DC-HSPA+ (42Mbits/s), TD-SCDMA and EDGE for legacy 2G/3G networks
  • 30+ 3GPP RF bands support to meet operator needs worldwide
  • Supports 802.11ac
  • Multi-GNSS positioning systems including GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo and QZSS
  • Bluetooth LE and ANT+ for ultra-low power connectivity with fitness tracking devices
  • Multi-standard inductive and resonant wireless charging functionality available
  • Supported by MediaTek’s companion multimode wireless power receiver IC
  • On chip multimedia solutions:

  • This SoC has low-power hardware support for the new H.265 Ultra HD (4K2K) video record & playback, in addition to Ultra HD video playback support for H.264 & youtube’s VP9 video codec
  • It supports 24-bit 192 kHz Hi-Fi quality audio codec with high performance digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) to head phone >110dB SNR
  • 20MP camera capability and a high-definition WQXGA (2560 x 1600) display controller
  • MediaTek ClearMotion&#0153 technology eliminates motion jitter and ensures smooth video playback at 60fps on devices
  • MediaTek MiraVision&#0153 technology for DTV-grade picture quality
  • If some of the terms mentioned in this post(VP9 codec, 802.11ac, GLONASS etc.) are confusing more or less, then I will simplify them and will bring more articles on individual topics like VP9 codec, GLONASS and more.

    Below are the hardware specifications you can expect from a device when it claims that it has a Mediatek MT6595 SoC chipset:
    – Octa-core processing
    – 20MP camera support
    – WQXVGA resolution displays
    – High quality audio specs
    – 4G LTE multi-mode modem
    – Great multimedia support
    – Wireless charging

    So it is clear that with this Mediateck SoC manufacturers will come with high-end devices only and world class features in all dimensions.

    The MT6595 platform will be commercially available by the first half of 2014, with devices expected in the second half of the year.

    Stay tuned to get the latest information.
