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.
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:
Next week January 6-9, in Las Vegas Nevada the 2015 CES show will take place. Usually the show doesn’t show much in the way of hi speed but a few gems have come out of the show in the past like the Panasonic W850 & V750 which a year later still hold their own as the best slow motion general purpose camcorders in quality with the 9th and 10th place in our slow-mo camera guide. These have recently come down in price considerably!
2014 has been a very interesting year for slow motion. We saw a new crop of cameras sport frame rates that will set new standards for affordable slowmo for years to come. We had the edgertronic shipping in quantity and the Kickstarter fps1000 surprise that promises unrivaled slow motion in full HD and even 4k at unheard of prices. Phones like the iPhone 6 now sport 240fps and the Mediatek MT6595, MT6795 chips offer the possibility of 480fps at full 1080p.
2015 will probably be the year of the slow motion HD phone as it seems the feature is a way for brands to differentiate phone specs. Like the megapixel spec race, the slow-mo race is now in motion. We want to share some of the slow motion footage we have come across this year and thank you again for your support. This site was started at the beginning of the year with an idea and it has turned into an evolving resource for many camera enthusiasts to look for the latest in slow motion cameras on a budget.
