MediaTek To Bring LTE To Everyone With Three Ultra-affordable New Chipsets

The mobile market has definitely changed a lot in the past few years and while many big-name players might not appreciate the influx of recent brands and increasingly more affordable offers, there seems to be no discontinue in sight for the ongoing smartphone revolution. Nowadays, you really don't have to break the bank to acquire solid smartphone experience and you can buy a perfectly usable device for as small as $100.

We largely have MediaTek to thank for enabling most of these amazingly priced offers with its affordable solutions and judging from the latest addition to its silicon lineup, the next wave of low-discontinue handsets might be more impressive than ever, now with LTE support for as small as $50!

The MT6738 is the cheapest of the recent trio. It uses four ARM Cortex-A53 chips, clocked at 1.5 Giga Hertz (GHz) and a Mali T860 MP1 GPU. Screen resolution support is capped at 720P, but there is support for up to 4GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and a 13MP camera, Of course, the biggest upgrade is the Cat.6 LTE support.

The MT6750 ramps things up with a total of eight Cortex-A53 cores, four running at 1.5 Giga Hertz (GHz) and the other at 1.0 GHz. The GPU is the more powerful Mali T860 MP2, but resolution is still capped at regular HD. The capturing camera support, however, is bumped up to 16MP.

Last, but not least, is the MT6750T. Its specs see practically identical to the none "T" model, except that maximum resolution is set at FullHD. Considering the GPU should be the same Mali T860 MP2, we can only assume it will be working at a higher clock-rate. The aforementioned trio of chips will be in production after the Chinese New Year, so if things go along as planned, they should start appearing in ultra-budacquire LTE handsets this summer.
