MediaTek readies Octa-core, 64-bit SoC with LTE for mobile devices Taiwanese semi MediaTek has officially announced the world's first octa-core 64-bit SoC.
The chip can support a 2K display, and the company says it truly has eight cores, unlike other "octa-core" devices. The MT6795 chipset has 4G LTE radio support, and is clocked at 2.2GHz using the company's proprietary CorePilot technology for "multi-processor performance and thermal control."

Among the other high-end specs are dual-channel LPDDR3 DRAM at 933MHz, the highest bandwidth we've seen yet.

Full feature set:

64-bit True Octa-core™ LTE SoC with clock speed up to 2.2GHz
MediaTek CorePilot unlocks the full power of all eight cores
Dual-channel LPDDR3 memory clocked at 933MHz
2K on device display (2560x1600)
120Hz mobile display with ClearMotion™ and Response Time Enhancement Technology
480fps 1080p Full HD Super-Slow Motion video recording and playback
Integrated, low-power hardware support for H.265 Ultra HD (4K2K) video record & playback, Ultra HD video playback support for H.264 & VP9, as well as for graphics-intensive games and apps
Support for Rel. 9, Category 4 FDD and TDD LTE (150Mbps/50Mbps), as well as modems for 2G/3G networks
Support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac/Bluetooth®/FM/GPS/Glonass/Beidou/ANT+
Multi-mode wireless charging supported by MediaTek's companion multi-mode wireless power receiver IC

Most importantly, the first MT6795-powered devices will be available by the end of the year.

2.2GHz... I would prefer if average million-instructions-per-sec (mips) was used as the standard to rate CPU speed rather than the rather uninformative clock rate.

I suppose it might also be mentioned what type of cpu , ARM etc., it is.

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

DSE VZ300-
Zilog Z80 CPU, 32KB RAM (16K+16K cartridge), video processor 6847, 2KB video RAM, 16 colours (text mode), 5.25" FDD
