- By adding CDMA2000, MediaTek accomplishes WorldMode modem capability in a single platform and meets wireless operator requirements globally; putting advanced yet affordable smartphones into the hands of consumers
HSINCHU, Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaTek today announced a new 64-bit mobile system on chip (SoC), MT6735, incorporating the modem and RF needs of wireless operators globally. By offering a unified mobile platform, MediaTek is enabling its customers to develop on the MT6735 and sell mobile devices globally, thereby creating significant R&D cost savings and economies of scale in manufacturing. The MT6735 builds upon MediaTek's existing line-up of mainstream LTE platforms by adding the critical WorldMode modem capability.
The MT6735 incorporates four 64-bit ARM® Cortex®-A53 processors, delivering significantly higher performance than Cortex-A7 for a premium mobile computing experience, driving greater choice of smart devices at affordable prices for consumers. As projected, MediaTek sees a continued consolidation of smartphones into a very large mid-range, termed by MediaTek as the "Super-mid market".
"The MT6735 is a breakthrough product from MediaTek," said Jeffrey Ju, SVP and General Manager of Wireless Communication at MediaTek. "With CDMA2000, we offer global reach, driving high performance technology into the hands of users everywhere. We also strongly believe that as LTE becomes mainstream in all markets, the processing power must be consistently high to ensure the best possible user experience. That's why 64-bit CPUs and CorePilot™ technology are standard features across all of our LTE solutions."
"MediaTek wants to make the world a more inclusive place, where the best, fully-connected user experiences do not mean expensive," said Johan Lodenius, Chief Marketing Officer for MediaTek. "We are committed to creating powerful devices that accelerate the transformation of the global market and strive to put high-quality technology in the hands of everyone."
The MT6735 platform includes:
Next-Generation 64-bit Mobile Computing System
Advanced Multimedia Features
Integrated 4G LTE WorldMode Modem & RF
Integrated Connectivity Solutions
MT6735 is sampling to early customers in Q4, 2014, with the first commercial devices to be available in Q2, 2015.
