MediaTek unveils two new tablet processors

The mobile chip maker MediaTek has presented two new processors for tablets. The new chips are called MT8163 and MT8735 and will be on the market this summer when they will power budget- and mid-range tablets.

The new MediaTek MT8163 chip is based on four ARM Cortex-A53 cores with 64-bit technology inside. The processor supports sensor displays with resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD), dual-band 5 GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio, GPS, Android 5.1 Lollipop as well as Full HD displays at 60 Hz and HD displays at 120 Hz. According to MediaTek the MT8163 reaches 30 000 AnTuTu scores.

The other MT8735 processor is a bit more powerful and offers more features. The chip includes four of the same 64-bit Cortex-A53 cores but MediaTek claims the processor offers performance that is 20 per cent better that the competition while using 10 per cent less power. The processor supports dual-band 5 GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio, GPS, Glonass, Beidou, 4G LTE, EDGE, HSPA+, MediaTek MiraVision, real time PortraitPlay, high-end camera functions and more.

The chips will be first released in China and on the Asian market in new devices that are expected any time soon. A bit later the MT8163 and MT8735 will debut in the rest of the world.
