Taiwanese chipset maker MediaTek today unveiled the MT6753, which is a 64-bit octa-core mobile processor with support for WorldMode modem capability and designed specifically for the mid-range market segment.

The MT6753 processor consists of 8 ARM Cortex A53 64-bit processors and a Mali-T720 GPU to deliver great multimedia experiences without compromising on battery efficiency.
