Mediatek posted a video a few days ago showing the 480fps Full HD capability of it’s MT6795 chip. It shows the clip at regular speed then at 120fps and then finally at 480fps full HD. As to the quality some speculate the footage is not shot by a Phone but from a real high speed camera. We think it is shot by the phone but edited and sweetened in post to look as good.
The specs for the newest and greatest ARM phone chip the A72, show that it is close to 3.5 times more powerful than ARM’s previously released Cortex-A15. It is also powerful enough to record and process 4K video at a rate of 120 frames per second.
While the specs of this 32 and 64bit capable chip look mighty impressive it is a predictor of things to come. These reference design chips are used for example by Apple in their A architecture because the company has an architectural license agreement with ARM; that has proved to be an amazing performer because Apple tweaks the design to perform incredibly fast in their devices sometimes above 50% from the reference design in some specific applications.
There is a rumor that may become real in the coming days of the release of the HTC A55 Desire Phone with the Mediatek MT6795 chip capable of true slow motion in full HD 1080p at 480fps. The specs are as follows:
- Mediatek MT6795 2.0GHz*8 64Bit “480fps Capable”
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB ROM
- 5.5″ WQHD Display
- 20MP Back Camera with a LED flash “Sony Sensor?“
- 13MP or 4MP UltraPixel Front Camera
- Bluetooth 4.1
- Not big battery (less than 3000)
- Android 5.0
- Desire Sense 7.0
- Launch Date Feb 2015
This excerpt from the rumor at Android Authority Could signal the first 480fps capable smartphone of 2015:
The recently released Droid Turbo from Motorola available on Verizon in the USA has a 120fps 720p mode in the specs and we have a sample that shows that the slow motion mode while clean of noise is quite bad in the aliasing and moire department as resolution lines seem to be skipped to arrive at 720p at a higher frame rate. The iPhone 6 continues to be currently the best slow motion phone for your money. The Turbo is clearly no match but it can still let you produce some middle of the road slow mo videos for fun!

A rumored Sony sensor part code IMX189AEG has been captivating the camera rumor world last week. The specs seem almost like a fictionalized version of a wish list but it may well be not only real but a sign of things to come in sensor technology. The sensor specs are as follows:
- 6K Video at 240fps
- 2K Video at up to 16,000fps 16 bit
- 1080p max 24,000fps
- 1.5″ Sensor Close to Micro 4/3ds size
- 4.85 megapixels using Active Pixel Color Sampling
- Global Shutter
- Native ISO of 5120
- Max ISO 655,360
Active Pixel Color Sampling reads RGB signals on a single pixel so a 4.85 Megapixel sensor equates to a Bayer pattern sensor of about 15 Megapixels. This creates huge pixel spaces and increased dynamic range along with faster read out times and a global shutter.
