“On a leaked roadmap we can now see when to expect the MT6795. Many thought it would be launched in late 2014, and were kinda confused why nothing happened. Indeed, the time-frame for a release started in late 2014, but isn’t over yet. It’s going till shortly before the end of the first quarter of 2015, which means that we might see a release in February or for sure in Early March”
As commented in late 2014 the phones with this chip and a specific sensor will be capable of 1080p slow motion videos at 480fps. It will be interesting to see which carriers in Europe, Asia and the Americas retain the spec and offer it to their subscriber base.
With the chip still being adopted in several markets after a slow bump and lag for release, we may have to wait a bit more for an actual handset than February or March; however this is good news as the phones are now coming and it is a question of what month in 2015 and not stuck in limbo.
